In my previous post Yellow Gray & Glam I went into detail about my inspiration and plans for my daughters nursery and decor. Our goal: to create a light, bright and sunny space for our new little one using a color scheme of yellow, gray and gold, and feminine prints such as damask & paisley to achieve our vision. We added many custom items ordered from Etsy, as well as some personalized touches like the letter ‘M’ painted and distressed by my husband, the wall decal via Five Star Signs and some bird, owl and crystal details carried over from our vintage chic themed baby shower. A tufted pouf, jeweled drawer knobs, rhinestone accents and an ornate mirror finish off the nursery, which is the perfect fit for our baby girl.
One of my favorite parts about being invited to a celebration is the gift giving, and any opportunity I have to personalize a gift and make it extra special I will. Today with personalization on the brain, I created a few more special baby gifts which are available in my Etsy shop. All are inspired by sugary confections.
Our newest addition to the family will arrive sometime at the end of this month, or beginning of next. We celebrated the anticipation of her arrival a few weeks back at my vintage-glam themed baby shower brunch, which couldn’t have turned out better! I have my mom, sister and a few good friends to thank for their assistance in pulling together all the little details leading up to the event, the day was simply perfect.
In one of my recent posts Sunshine Yellow & Gray, I mentioned my plans to design my daughter’s nursery in that same color scheme. Well after much planning and ordering like a mad woman online it is finally nearing completion! Although I’m not quite ready to share live photos with you yet, they will be coming soon. Right now I’m just waiting on a few final touches to tie everything together, but here’s a sneak peek of the items that have arrived for her Yellow, Gray & Glam nursery.
What’s the first thought that comes to your mind when you think of clothespins? For me it’s laundry or a clothesline, yet after gaining some inspiration on Pinterest, I found some alternative uses much more exciting than laundry. Just add a little glitter and viola! You now have a glamorous version perfect for weddings, bridal or baby shower games, favors, gifts and celebration decor.
The due date of my 2nd daughter is fast approaching and I have many projects to accomplish before her May 2nd arrival. A few of my largest tasks consist of designing her nursery and creating items for my upcoming baby shower. Although I am not planning the baby shower in it’s entirety on my own, I tend to be a bit of a control freak so I have more of a hand in the planning process than I probably should. Call me crazy but preggers or not, I absolutely love being involved. I always find an excuse to throw a party so there was no way that I’d be staying out of this one. I must however mention how fortunate I am to have a few special people in my life who will be helping plan and are also willing to put up with me and my obsessive demands for perfection.
