Carolyne’s Coral & Gold Nursery

Carolyne Nell – named after her two late great grandmothers – was born July 28, 2014. We spotted her gorgeous room on Project Nursery and just had to share it! Mom Amy gave us a little insight into her inspiration for baby Carolyne’s nursery, as well as the challenges of becoming a mom of two!

I decided to go very “girly” for her nursery and came up with the idea of doing a focal wall of glitter. I found some AMAZING wallpaper and fell in love with it, so I centered everything else around that! I loved the way the coral and aqua accents complemented the gold.

Carolyne is the baby sister to big brother Tripp (3 years old). He’s obsessed with her and loves “helping” take care of her and giving her kisses!

It’s been pretty challenging making the adjustment from one child to two – especially with stubborn big brother in the midst of potty training and tantrums! I knew it would be hard getting used to two kids, but it’s definitely proven to be quite the adjustment! Giving both of them my attention is tough, but I’ve really tried to make the effort so he doesn’t have crazy jealousy issues! We actually have a “big brother box” full of cheap toys, coloring books, etc (Target and Walmart dollar aisles are the greatest!) that he gets to choose something out of when he’s being a “big helper” and/or someone comes to meet her and brings her a gift (so he doesn’t feel left out or jealous). But, with all of that being said, nothing is more rewarding than being a parent and watching your babies grow up before your eyes! It’s truly amazing (and kinda devastating) how quickly they grow and change!

Gino’s Black & White Nursery

Post by Samantha Riccioli

I am about 30 days away from giving birth to my first child, Gino, and wanted to create a chic, grown-up black and white nursery that reflects my modern style. I found the wallpaper first and everything else just came together naturally for me. photo-2-2photo 2-1I love black and white and knew that whether the baby was a boy or a girl, the room would look like this. I’m excited to spend time in a room that I, myself, would live in!photo-3-2photo-1-4 DSC07674photo-3-3

A Back to School Party!

Post by Anders Ruff

We love teachers, we love books, we love how this party looked! So, while the rest of us are fighting crowds and scrambling to complete the “Back to School” list for each of our dear sweet children, another Mom is out there throwing together a quick impromptu party to celebrate the last days of summer. Bettina, a Berlin customer of ours, threw such a precious Back to School party for her son and his friends that we couldn’t keep the party photos all to ourselves.

Bettina used our “Back to School” printable collection for her decorations and shared the details of her party:

“It was the last week of our summer-holidays when I found your lovely printables. I thought they were so cute, so I decided that I wanted to make the last day of summer a little special for my son Caspar and his little friends.”

8PUV69fnP7WIdeivC99NsZGBRJ0nlHlbukJTscZxbKo copy WWBp_grMXVnejTGzO2Nmbawag4cZegxxsxJe1p-psMQ“I took a side table and threw a white blanket/table cloth over it. I wanted it to look easy and natural.  I bought little cherry lollipops on sticks and then I filled some colored cups with floral foam. I just turned the cups upside down and pressed them into the foam. It kind of felt like cookie cutting. This way the cups were filled and I just put the lollies into the cups and then glued the Anders Ruff printable cupcake toppers to the cups.”RzeRl5-OTzcnvcCM5Cb80VBfVjH1BBitNmV4fXkOL7U“I put some lovely french mandarin lemonade in little bottles for the kids to have some little drinks. Three glass jars were filled with candy and the big one was closed with a little cupcake topper which I glued to a red ribbon around the jar in the middle.”y7UHOSumHAs6bktz_wVafavSAS5aMc4EtofJ7ybhkFM8zhnpuu56zuAipXAa2kuhTnd8RtjI80OqqmwZHOJpKc-2“I took a side table to decorate some little gifts for the kids: I had sticker paper and decorated little lunch boxes, crayons and little note books as well as plain stickers for the kids to use as name tags for their books.”

dZCFmzb5diq4qWW10MC91lwzjYho8NHyjsCJyBdrkx0collage-3“My favorite item from this little party was my piñata. I love piñatas. I wanted one that matched the design so I decided to make an apple, which I filled with sweets. There are several tutorials for piñatas on the web right now. I hung it in our apple tree and the kids had so much fun.”

Brennan’s Motorcycle Birthday Party

Post by Paula Biggs of Frog Prince Paperie

motorcycle-low-44-634x951My son’s birthday party is my favorite one that I throw all year. Boy parties are challenging. No pink, no fluff, just down and dirty wholesome boy goodness. That can be fun if you let it! After some gentle steering from his father, our kiddo was quite enthusiastic about paying homage to motorcycles. For weeks before (and after!) the party, all conversations had focused around motorcycles in one way or another. And for good reason…his party even brought little boy smiles to dads in attendance at the event!

There were some pretty amazing vendors who leant talent to this party. Rockets and Rainbows designed this detailed (and beloved) party shirt just for the birthday boy. I have to pry it off him at night he loves it so much.

The checkerboard floor was actually plastic sheeting we taped to the floor; it gave a great motorcycle shop effect!

motorcycle-low-11-634x524For lunch, we set up a “Biker Burger Bar” with lots of different yummy toppings: carmalized onions, sauteed mushrooms, bacon, thick cut pickles, tomatoes, lettuce and cheese.  With a big spinach salad and a side of bbq and hotdogs there was a little something for everyone.

double-2The oil cans were one of my favorite details. Every “oil can” was a can of tomato I wrapped a specially-designed label around. They were stacked and used as dessert stands.

motorcycle-low-70-634x422double-1Flame-licked french macaroons in vanilla. AND they’re organic. I love when we’re able to marry artistry with better-for-you options. And did you see the flames? Righteous. By the talented earthandsugar.

Love and Sugar Kisses provided the wildly fun fondant toppers and chocolate covered oreos.

motorcycle-low-35-634x422double-3motorcycle-low-47-634x951motorcycle-low-89-634x951Party guests had so many goodies to go home with! I had planned for all the kids to gear up with do-rags, sunglasses and really cool “born to be wild” t-shirts in a jar, all in individually personalized “motorcycle parts” containers.

motorcycle-low-53-634x422motorcycle-low-7-634x422double-4By the end of the party, the little guests had all wandered back to sift through their boxes. We sent each family home with a CD of the party playlist — inspired by motorcycles and a need for speed.

All in all, a highly successful party! Brennan had the time of his life and still gets excited to see pictures from his party.

Summertime from Maureen Porto Photography

Can you believe it’s almost August!? Maureen Porto from Maureen Porto Photography is giving us an inside look at a few of her personal snaps of her fun filled summer!

When you live in the mid-Atlantic and survive the long winters,  Summer is no longer just a season, it’s a 4 and a half month Holiday meant to be savored and celebrated! Here in Annapolis, Summer kicks off in late April with the opening of the Rockfish Season and ends when the little ones are ushered back to school at the end of August. SideBySide IMG_4573Our family, like countless others, spends as much time as possible enjoying the outdoors: swimming, camping, jumping off the dock, exploring local creeks on our kayaks and stand up paddle boards, catching crabs from the Chesapeake Bay, sailing, fishing off our powerboat, or rafting up with friends on the river.
