Vintage Nursery Reveal

Well I got word from my Dallas couple that their baby boy made his debut three weeks early.  In honor of Hudson's arrival, I thought I would show you guys the final shots of his nursery!  I'm so pleased with how it turned out, and more importantly, that his parents are so happy with it.  I received an email from Hudson's dad last week saying this...
 "{The nursery} looks awesome and everyone that sees it is floored by how nice it looks!  Aimee’s friend started crying the first time she saw it, so just wanted to let you know how amazing your work is!"
What a compliment!  It really was a pleasure working with such a sweet couple and making their dream nursery a reality.  Now let's take a look at the final reveal...

The Pottery Barn glider (shown with the French Stripe Oatmeal slipcover) was the last piece to the puzzle and now that it's in, the room is finally complete!


Hudson's mom wanted an overall light and airy feel to the room, and I think that was achieved.  The soft gray walls and light flooring keep the space bright and open while the small pops of green and contrasting woods help bring some balance to the space.  

The bedding is still probably one of my favorite parts of the space.  If there is one piece of advice I can give you for decorating your own nursery, bedroom, etc. it's to mix and match bedding pieces!  The end result will always look more custom and aesthetically pleasing than a matching set.  For more information and details on this bedding, go here.  

This bookcase from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child was a great solution for achieving both function and charm in the corner of the room.  And it works as a great backdrop for all Hudson's adorable toys and books.

Thanks for stopping by!  I'd love to hear what you think of the space!

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…

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…

Auden's First Birthday-Pumpkins and Pearls

It's only been 6 months now, but better late than never, right?

Auden turned one on November 11th and we celebrated at our home with close family and friends.  The theme of the party was pumpkins and pearls.  Pun'kin is one of the nicknames I called her when she was little and pearls bring a girly flair and tied into our reveal party when we found out we were having a girl so it seemed perfect.

I had so much fun creating her invitation and all of the party printables.  And for a little extra adornment, the invites were tied with jute twine and placed in scalloped envelope. Invites available for purchase here.

Here's the sweet birthday girl in her homemade hat.  I love how the bow on top turned out :)  Her birthday stats poster is now available here.

The smash cake table with our go-to milk jars (Starbuck frappuccino glasses) with paper straws.  The tree slab plate they are sitting on was also used at our wedding.  The smash cake was a $10 cake from Public and Auden LOVED …
