Re-purpose Your Nursery Decor Into Party Decor!

Start your party decor search somewhere close by…..your baby’s nursery!  I love re-purposing room decor items in my party set-ups.  Simple items such as hanging canopies, banner buntings or wall decors can transform your party from cute to WOW!

I used this darling carnival/circus canopy from IKEA (a mere $19.99 investment) for an elephant parade birthday party…..and it MADE the party!  People are in awe of the unexpected and a simple, inexpensive item can help you elevate your dessert table,  story-time reading nook, or craft table.  Here are a few of my favorite items that can help you do just that:

  1. Wood Airplane Mobile – this hanging element with give your son’s birthday party flight!
  2. Fabric Wall Decal Bunting – gender-neutral, this bunting is full of cute patterns and charm and would be a darling addition to any party!
  3. Rose Petal Canopy – I can just picture this beautiful rose petal canopy hanging over a tea party table in the garden, can’t you?
  4. Nautical Flag Banner – these seaside flags are perfect for a nautical birthday party or baby shower.  (a VERY popular theme this time a year!)
  5. Chandelier Wall Decal – bring a touch of elegance to any party with this sweet chandelier wall decal.  It’s a great way to “dress-up” a tea party or elegant first birthday party!
  6. Lady Bug Wall Decals – cluster a bunch of these cuties going up a wall or down a table!
  7. Pink Butterfly Mobile – hang a mobile over a kids table like you would a chandelier over your dining room table.  It adds a vertical element to your space, not to mention a sense of whimsy!
  8. Batman Wall Decal – with superheros the rage these days, who could resist a batman wall decal personalized with your child’s name?!

I think that it's fun that Project Nursery is trying to tie together the nursery and parties. I would agree that it would be a waste to throw out these decors when it could be used for parties, and vice versa. I think that it was Rebecca who first pointed out that party decors could serve as beautiful decorations in your nursery. Now it's the other way around.

So love your ideas here, Kelly! I think that I'd bring out a similar canopy from my kid's old nursery in time for her birthday party next month!
