Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Nesting

I’ve been working on a special shower for a dear friend… and have some delicious ideas up my sleeve. Here’s a little sneak peek at the inspiration for the celebration.

As I watch all of these mama’s-to-be feather their nests with the anticipation of a little one, I couldn’t help but be inspired to turn the theme into a shower that reflects the age old art of nesting. Whimsical blues, teals and yellows… milk glass cake stands and thrift store goblets… perhaps a few branches and paper accordion rosettes? So fun to plan.

We’re not following the traditional Saturday afternoon etiquette either. I jump at every opportunity to where one of my favorite tea party dresses, but instead we’ll host this shower mid-week for a dessert and latte bar celebration for a twist on the everyday baby shower. Plus, it means that most of our guests will likely be in town (no weekend plans to stand in the way) and our budget is a bit more friendly without the cost of a meal.

Lauren Lee of L&Co., one of my co-hosters, created these beautiful invites that are in the mail! Can’t wait to share the details of the day soon.

{Giveaway from Fabricadabra} Ikat & Batik Pillows!

I’m so excited for today’s giveaway from Fabricadabra! This neat company carries beautiful pillow covers (and fabric by the yard) in a variety of contemporary and traditional designs. I would happily decorate my home in any one of their organic, environmentally friendly and LOVELY pillows – my favorite being the Ikat print.

And today they’re offering TWO of any pattern you choose to a lucky winner!

Made By Girl and Beautiful Living Blog show off a few of the Ikat prints incorporated into their own homes – oh how I love!

Donna Halloran, founder and owner of Fabricadabra, works with artisans from all over the world and her products are organic, naturally dyed and ethically sourced. The inserts are made of a material called kapok, an eco-friendly alternative that is mold, mildew and dustmite resistant, completely renewable and grown without pesticides. Besides the Ikat, be sure to check out the Suzani embroidered pillows, the tie-dyed batik covers and the vintage wool prints.

The quality and fair trade-friendly nature of the company keeps it at the top of my list for great fabrics. But another great part? The pillow covers are affordable at only $30-40 a piece.

Friday Interview: High-Heeled Foot in the Door!

Have you ever found a blog that hooked you immediately? The adventures of Camila and her love for interior design did just that for me over at High-Heeled Foot in the Door.

Camila says it best in her blog introduction: “Follow me as I try to make my dreams of entering the design world a reality. Quite literally I’m trying to get my High-Heeled Foot in the door (ok so most days I’m in ballerina flats, but you get the idea). I’m starting my own Interior Decorating company and this blog allows me to let you all in on it. From helping pick out business cards to reading about me second-guessing myself and all the fun in between. Come and stay a while and read about my love for design, random ramblings, and my many steps into becoming my own boss one client and room at a time.”

This New York native shares her fun projects, inspirations and everyday ideas {like these beautiful snippets from her DIY home} while also featuring favorite bloggers in a “day in the life” fashion called In Her Shoes. One of my favorite features!

Camila is one talented & creative chica, and I’m so excited to share her answers to PDB’s four interview questions with you!

Follow the jump for an inside look at her favorite inspirations (you’ll love her office makeover that all started with a Kate Spade skirt), top three trends and simple suggestions for designing a room when starting from scratch! Continue reading
