Playroom Day 3

Today we're finally seeing the fruits of our labor!  We have some stuff up on the walls, the table and chairs put together and in place and the toys put away!  We still need to organize some of the shelves and hang some more artwork that we're waiting to arrive, but hopefully it will be here tomorrow.  Let me walk you through the new details we've added so far...

First up, we have our adorable sparrow hooks on the wall.  These add so much life to the room.  If you're going to use hooks in a playroom, pick a fun shape!  I promise you'll love them.

 Here they are again.  I love how well the green and pink tie into the buckets in the toy box.  We're waiting on a poster to come in to hang over the toy box.

We also hung up this fun little mirror.  It was originally an iron color, but we spray painted it purple to match the curtains and pillows.  We also hung the last of our three collectors shelves underneath it for easy access for Gabbi.

Here is a close-up of the mirror.

Here's the view looking into the room.

This was Gabbi's favorite spot during our table assembly :)

She seemed pretty pleased with her new table and chairs when we were done though.

Here is the new lamp for the side table next to the couch.  I LOVE linen shades.  It brought some much needed texture into the room.  

Here is this side of the room with the new lamp.

Here is another view of the table and chairs area.

Tonight we'll be working on some artwork for a mural and putting together a hydrangea mobile to hang from the ceiling.  We're loving how all of the accessories are bringing the room to life.  Accessories make a room!

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :)


Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print.


A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos.

An antique baby basket helped house the gifts.
The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee.
The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar. 
And of course no shower is complete without a little something sweet. These b…

Planes or Pearls? Gender Reveal Party

On Friday, June 28th, Jon and I headed out to see the gender of Baby Reutter.  Jon wanted to find out as soon as possible, and I wanted to wait to be surprised with everyone at the reveal party the next day. So we decided that he would find out and be the one set up the "big reveal."  Baby Reutter didn't want to cooperate on the first attempt but after some cold water, walking around and sweet patience from the ultrasound tech, we got the "money shot."  I'm not going to lie, it was a bit torturous at first to not be in the know with Jon, but after the first few hours, I was good to go and so excited about the surprise for the next day.  Here we are about to head out to the reveal appointment.
Now for the reveal party on Saturday...As mentioned before, I wanted a unique theme for the party.  Since Jon is a pilot, I thought planes would be a cute idea for a boy.  For the girl, I thought of pearls; they're sweet, feminine and also happen to be my birthsto…

Giraffe 1st Birthday

Over two months later, I'm finally getting around to posting on my nephew Cohen's first birthday!  Because he was born just six days before Christmas, it was important to my sister, Meredith, to have a party to make him feel special, separate of the normal seasonal celebrations.  And I'm always up for a planning a good party!

Since Cohen was little baby, he has loved giraffes.  First introduced with the paper mache bust hanging over the changing pad in his nursery(here), my sister says he's been a fan ever since.  Using that as the inspiration, the party planning began.  Meredith found an invitation she liked at Tiny Prints and thus the color palette of green, yellow and brown was established.


Cohen wore a monogrammed yellow chevron coverall on the big day, and the cheerful pattern was also used throughout the party.  To create a prominent backdrop on the fireplace mantel, we covered a remant piece of beadboard with chevron fabric.  It made a big statement with little…
