alice in wonderland party ideas

Vivi’s fourth birthday is right around the corner, and we’re having fun getting ready to celebrate.  It’s so fun to have a little fall kickoff and invite her little friends over to have fun.  We don’t get to host nearly as much as I’d like, partly because our house isn’t really that big, and partly because of this season of life with little people, so I love having a reason to throw a party and spend time with some of our favorites.   We’re doing a little “Vivi in Wonderland” theme, and here is some of the inspiration above!  I can tell 4 is going to be a big year.  I can feel even more so this shift of parenting from simply meeting needs to more relationship building and investing.

Have you heard about the Collective from The Honest Co.?  It’s a pretty great curation of beautiful baby products that share Honest’s commitment to quality and health, and they recently launched this beauty of a crib with Babyletto.  The very best part of this partnership is that when you purchase one of these cribs, they donate a crib to a family in need.  How incredible is that?  And this crib is only $399, so I’m sure these will be going fast.  I adore the modern lines and the mix of light, natural wood with bright white!

To make it even better, Honest is hosting a pin to win giveaway for a $1000 gift card.  Pretty awesome, right?  And, in case you need any inspiration, I worked with Honest on three style boards based on three of their adorable diaper patterns (check them all out here!).  The details on how to enter are on the Honest blog, and be sure to check out our inspiration board here.  Below is a little taste of one of the boards:

Now, go enter, because $1000 to Honest is pretty incredible.  I mean, their diapers are just the sweetest, and it’s so good to know their products are safe and healthy for our little ones!

I adore this nursery that Lauren created for her little daughter, Ann Bennett.  It’s just gorgeous!  She was inspired by the My Little Pony board, and I love what she did with it to make it her own.  She says the gender was a surprise, so it was a great neutral start, and then she added in some girly touches after Ann Bennett made her arrival.  (Sources: Ebony Jenny Lind Crib; Crib Skirt; Black Dots Crib Sheet; Sleepytime Rocker; Candy Pink Pouf; Tree Stump Table; Horseradish Dhurrie Rug; Bentwood Pendant; The Alison Show Mobile;  Pharmacy Floor Lamp; Triangle Pillow

Love this gorgeous armoire she found off craigslist.  She switched out the hardware for some pieces from Anthropologie. (Sources: Embroidery Hoop

Always a fan of The Alison Show’s leather triangle mobiles!

For these shelves, she used IKEA brackets painted gold.  Love!

The dresser/changing table is another craigslist find that she painted with chalk paint (chesapeake blue).  Love that sweet little abacus lamp.

Lauren’s sister-in-law, Lea, painted the horse above the crib.  Such a sweet gift and treasure!

black and white baby room ideas

Here is a slightly more neutral version of last week’s board.  I’m loving the calming, sparse feel of the black and white.  And how awesome is that screech owl tintype above?  I just love it!  It’s not offered in such a large size, sadly – but how special it is a tintype!  Also, that pendant light above is so good, and not too pricey at $149.

black and white baby nursery inspirationI’ve been working on some harvest/halloween projects for a Home Depot style challenge, which I’ll admit is a bit out of my element.  I don’t typically get super into the fall decor – not that I don’t like it, but it just usually sneaks up on me a bit and then before I know it, Christmas is here (favorite!).  Anyway, everything gets a lot more fun when the little ones are into it, so I thought it was a good excuse to deck the house with pumpkins and such – Vivi loves baby pumpkins!  This is sort of a re-visit to this board from last year – it’s one of my favorites for whatever reason.
