Owen’s Hot Air Balloon Birthday Party

I wanted Owen’s first birthday to be unique and special, while using as little money as possible. My goal was to decorate with things I already had in the house, buying only a few basic necessities. The result was a very simple, handmade party… nothing extravagant or expensive, just a sweet little celebration of our baby’s first year.

Owen’s Room

Inspired (and intimidated!) by all the great nursery designs on the web, I decided that it really is possible to create a great, personal space on a tight budget.  Owen’s nursery is filled with lovingly DIY’d, thrifted, and gifted objects that we’ve collected and arranged in little ways that make us happy. We aren’t allowed to paint our walls, so it’s been fun trying to figure out other ways to bring some color to the room. I know it still needs some work (need to get an area rug!!), but this room is now the most loved corner of our little house!
