Nursery Inspiration

BY Jen

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you may know that my husband and I are expecting our first child (a boy!). We are over the moon and I have just started feeling the strong urge to nest. I’ve been told this would happen but man, it is hitting hard. Everything from organizing, to cleaning, to purging, and the most fun (but also overwhelming) part…planning the nursery! I of course spent a bunch of time on Pinterest looking at nursery inspiration, and I have changed the direction I wanted to go a few times, but I have finally settled on a theme. If you can really call it a “theme” it is more just neutral colors with a bit of a woodland feel. I want to keep it very subtle and sophisticated and create a calming space for my baby to sleep in, and a space I like to spend time in. Here are the products that I have either already purchased or are on my wish list.

There is so much you can do with them, you avoid the mess and they last a lot longer! Here is a roundup of some fun and unique DIY no-carve pumpkins to try out. These all can be done on real or faux craft pumpkins.
