Kirsten, over at 6th Street Design School blog, just finished the cutest makeover for her son, Jett. Her son’s name, and husband’s full time job as a pilot, gave way to the perfect aviation theme for the space; from the wall decals, model airplanes, clustered globes and paper plane garland strung across the ceiling, all of the details are adorable.
But Kirsten confides that she didn’t start out with a jet theme in mind: “In designing his nursery I wanted to steer clear of the obvious airplane theme. But guess what? I just couldn’t do it. The airplanes kept calling to me. But in the end I really like how it turned out. If I would have to describe this room in 3 words they would be Adventure, Colorful and Sentimental. It is full of mementos from my husband’s childhood and even has a few items from our travels. The room is the tiniest room on the planet earth so I tried to make sure each item in it meaningful.”

Whether you’re planning a kid;s birthday party, winter get-together, Valentine’s Day group dinner or shower, your personal party favor can be a unique and special way to say ‘thank you’ for joining in on the celebration.
These easy ideas from Martha Stewart Living. are as simple (a thoughtful take-away bouquet from wrapping a few centerpiece stems in prepared tissue or plastic baggies with ribbon) or fancy (cardstock cones complete with matching ribbon and monogrammed labels) as your party sees fit.
These vellum wrapped cookies are one of my favorite ideas – wrap up a homemade dessert as if you were creating a mini envelope and add a pretty sticker. Place at the center of all individual table settings for a sweet little touch.
These diy pinwheel baggies are super easy and adorably cute as well – using plastic favor bags from your local craft store, fill with goodies and staple shut by folding cut out round circles over the top edges, wrap a ribbon completely around favor for a finishing touch. Simple! And it’s perfect for a kid’s party or baby shower.
