This was a baby shower for a friend of mine. She wanted a lavender butterfly theme. It was small and there wasn’t a ton of room so I didn’t want to bring the whole backdrop set up like I often do. I set it up in front of the pretty window and used 3 balloons for the backdrop instead. Keeping with the theme, balloons fly just like butterflies do. It was very pretty in person but not so great for pictures. I bought fresh flowers too because butterflies love flowers. The printout in the frame matched the invitations and had the new baby’s name on it. And I cut out little purple butterflies that I stuck randomly to things on the table to tie together the theme. I wanted a really clean look so I did a runner instead of a banner.
Most everything in my nursery is from Pottery Barn. My mom also turned a room in her house into a nursery as well. Most everything in hers is from Resoration Hardware. The mirror is spray painted from ikea and the photo above the bed is an actual photo of a tree at their house in Maine just blown up and framed. We both had to have chandeliers! (obsessed)
Here’s some pics of the DIY projects we each did.
I just love this room. It’s so bright and pretty and functional for a small 10 x 10 room. There’s a lot of love in here. Andre and his mom painted the room (Valspar Fair Maiden in case you’re wondering) and my mom bought the crib (Pottery Barn) and the dresser (Bellini) for us. Andre also made the shelves and I spray painted the brackets and accessories gold. Most everything else was a gift at my shower and I do remember exactly who got us what. We also asked for books instead of cards to jump start our collection. Everyone wrote a note inside the book they gave which has been fun to read.
I hope this gives someone some inspiration! Thanks for reading!
