I couldn’t find any bedding that I loved enough for my daughters room. I didn’t want to paint and I wanted to keep her black furniture from her nursery, along with some wall hangings and lamps so I needed to find something that incorporated all those colors. I found one option but it was unavailable so I decided if I can’t find what I want, I’m just going to make it. B had this Matilda Jane Platinum top that I fell in love with and it dawned on me that I should try and use that as inspiration for her room. So using her top inspiration I decorated a floral and girly room for my daughter. I added a lot of little personal touches and ended up doing a lot of DIY projects. Scanning the aisles of Michael’s can sometimes be a dangerous thing ;)
I added pinks and blues that matched her toys to coordinate everything together.
I wasn’t planning on doing a big party this year but I just couldn’t help myself. I picked the theme around Christmas and the timing was perfect. I was able to get Christmas clearance for 70% and since the colors for Strawberry Shortcake are red, green and pink, it worked perfectly. I bought lots of pinwheels in red and green and just added pink ones later one. Saved tons of money that way.
I wanted to do something sophisticated and girlie for my daughters 2nd birthday party, so I thought pink and gold would do the trick. I had so much fun thinking of creative ways to display her initial and add littgle details throughout her party.
I created a pink ombre 1st birthday party for my daughter. It became a bit of a pink explosion with some aqua thrown in the mix.
We created a gender neutral nursery for our little one that was due at the end of May. I love the grey and yellow combination and decided last minute to add some pops of teal. I’m so happy I did.
We did not know what we were having but at the end of May we welcomed our beautiful baby girl. I updated the photos to add a photo of what the room looks like now with our little girls picture above the crib. We put her in an elephant hat so she would match the room.
