This weekend will be the baby shower for my new great-neice, a little bundle of joy who has already graced us with her presence. So a fun shower it will be, with the baby in attendance and all!
And with that theme of little one’s on the way, we were ecstatic the moment we found out we are having a boy… and kept trying to narrow down colors and themes for the new nursery we get to plan!
When I came across the photo of a sweet, sleeping baby on a bed of orange and white, and covered by stripes of blue, orange and brown, I knew I had found my inspiration. Let the shopping begin!
You may have seen the different Nursery Inspiration Boards that have popped up over at Hostess with the Mostess and StrollerTraffic. Well, I decided to get to work on my own.
I was excited to learn a new nursery trend is one of our favorite animals here in the FreshMommy house… the giraffe!
I wanted to share my finds with you, and below are links and explanations to the products shown above, in case you find yourself interested in anything!
Bedding and Materials:
The baby photo is where my original inspiration came from, thank you Pinkle Toes! Upon learning that the orange and white print is actually an organic duvet cover from Pottery Barn, I ordered one right away to use as material. I’m pleased to announce that it’s as cute in person as it looks in the photo. The other bedding is an adorable new set available from Serena and Lily, though it ranks a little outside of the price range we were shooting for. So I’m using it as inspiration and we’re making our own! Well, I’m not actually making it, a friend is a seamstress and she’ll be the one actually sewing the crib bedding out of the materials I collect.
The completely adorable Gerry Giraffe and Mary Monkey Wall Graphic and the Safari Block Elephant Giraffe Rhino Decal will tie in perfectly.
We stocked up on some fun plush toys from Ikea this summer for Aliyah’s Birthday Party and have quite a few quirky toys stored away from the Barnslig Series.
I can’t wait to get this sleek little Giraffe Coin Bank.
I may end up making something similar to this Giraffe Silhouette Print, and a couple matching prints to go along with it. I, however, love this Binth Alphabet Poster as is, and would love to order it.
We made Aliyah’s mobile, and are planning on making Baby Boy Blue’s as well. What I wasn’t expecting, was to find a cute, modern wall mobile that would go perfectly in the new nursery. I think I’ll still make it, it just might look a little like the Oras Wall Mobile.
We’ll be re-using the Rock-A-Bye Rocker and Ottoman set from Babies-R-Us that we used nightly with our baby girl.
If I didn’t already have a white crib and changing table to use, I would run out and get the Dwell Studio Silver Crib and Changing Table from Target.
And of course, besides the crib sheets, some extra pillows and blankets for around the room will be made with that organic duvet cover from Pottery Barn.
I think we’re off to a happy, fun, colorful start.UPDATE:: Here’s the Completed Nursery Reveal!
