From the beginning the hubs and I decided we’re not going to go nuts with the nursery. We want to save money on things and keep it as simple as possible.
That’s not to say we won’t buy cute things here and there but hopefully we can try to use what we have, buy what we need and splurge every now and then. Plus I’m hoping that I can make things for the nursery as far as decorations.
This is what I have so far!
At our baby shower, Jess made a beautiful-hand made banner! (She had other decorations that she made as well) I couldn’t get over how beautiful it is so I had to bring it back home with me!
I didn’t quite know how I would use it but knew I would find a way.
I took the “O” and added letters to make our son’s name. Oooh, surprise! Now you guys know Boram’s name. We have been debating over this and the hubby’s name for a while. We found ourselves (without thinking about it) calling out for Olly. And since we’ve done it so much, we decided that it’s meant to be.
My little Oliver. :) My son.
I thought that this would be adorable to put in a cute frame (from Ikea, cheap… cheap, CHEAP) and I added a scrapbooking paper circle (like the sun) with a blue backing that looks like a sky. Easy. I also love that it’s a memento from our shower.
At our shower, we played a game where everyone drew a picture of what our son will look like. Everyone was asked to be creative and we got to pick the winner! We chose Jonathan, who is a toy designer, because it was just too adorable.
Jonathan also made is another picture at the shower because I loved his pictures so much. Isn’t it adorable?
I just had to buy mini frames to put them in. I’m hoping to buy more of these frames from Ikea. They have so many bright colors and I’m planning on putting most of the drawings people made into different frames and hanging them on the wall.
I’m planning on making my own mobile, using crochet amigurumi. I’m wondering if there are other things a nursery would have that I could make. Any tips?
What do you think so far?
I’m waiting till I frame everything, then put them up on the wall. I have to say that I love these pictures so much, it reminds me of all our friends who love us and especially little Oliver. <3
