I’m so excited to share today’s nursery with you. My friend Molly Kidd of the blog Urban Nester put together a lovely space for her brand new baby girl Karis Ruby and it pretty much embodies my approach to nursery design. It’s totally functional while still being chic and there’s a great balance of simplicity and whimsy. It’s a space that both an adult and a little one would enjoy being and the juxtaposition of modern and vintage pieces makes the space feel cozy and warm. When I asked Molly to share a bit about Karis’ space she said, “I wanted her space to be more feminine, and less babyish. I prefer simple design, and wanted the nursery to flow with the rest of our house, so I stuck primarily with black, white, grey, gold, and touches of mustard and various shades of pink. I’m happy with how the space turned out!” I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for letting me share your design handiwork Molly!
There is no doubt that the baby items Disney Baby creates are full of fun and color for little ones, so I thought it would be fun to put together a round-up of some of my favorites to represent all the colors of the rainbow…just in time for spring! Red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple are all present!
I realize that it’s not in line with social etiquette to have a baby shower after the birth of your first child, since it can come across as gift-seeking. But I am a firm believer that every baby, whether it’s your first or your fifth, deserves to be celebrated! The celebration needn’t be about gifts either – it can be sweet and simple and all about celebrating the mama-to-be and her impending little bundle of joy. As such I’ve come up with a few fun ideas that just might be the ticket if you’re looking to plan a baby shower for a second time mama!
My husband and I will be heading out on a little “babymoon” and it will be our first getaway without our daughter since before we came parents. She’ll be staying with her grandparents and I know they’re going to have a blast, but I still wanted to do a little something to make her feel special while we’re away and to let her know that we’re thinking of her. So I came up with a fun, little idea for these “Missing You” countdown bags.
This Monsters University 1st birthday party that I get to share with you guys today is seriously amazing! But, I guess those are the perks of having an event planner Miriam Corona for a mama. When Miriam’s little boy Matteo turned one, she pulled out all the stops and put together a true extravaganza. One of the most creative and detail-filled events I’ve ever seen. When asked about her inspiration Miriam says, “I was inspired to create a Monster Bash 1st birthday party because his birthday is so close to Halloween. I knew I wanted the party to be a costume party and with the release of the new Disney movie, Monsters University, I imagined how fun it would be to see the entire crew of adorable baby monsters dressed up for the occasion! After taking a trip to Disneyland to celebrate Matteo’s actual birthday, I was more than ready to create some magic at his birthday party!” Check out all the adorable details!
