Adalyn's New White Room

Adalyn's room has been done for a while but I haven't posted about it! I thought I should post before I show you the Christmas version! hahaha. If you don't remember, here is what her nursery looked like before:

 Then I decided to paint it white and here it is now:
Completely different, right?!  I lovelovelove it! My mom and dad actually tried to convince me to keep it white when we wallpapered it last year but I was set on aqua at the time. It is funny how I really wanted white this time!!

I wanted to get some black triangle wall vinyl but it was kind of pricey. I thought of many different options until I decided on this. This wall cost a total of $5 and I love the impact it makes!
It is actually a black gift bag. Well, three. And 1.5 packs of sticky tack. That is all! What do you think?

I moved my book shelves...

We stacked two cubes and I love how it looks!
 Love my build a banner and the cute art from Printable Wisdom
My new fave affordable digital print store.

This shelf needs more colour!!
  We left the shelves behind the door. I added the ADALYN letters I made from her party!

Well what do you think? I love it. I love the triangle wall! It is my favourite part of the room. I especially love that is can come off when I want it to! And it was super cheap!!! Don't worry! I won't change her room anymore...until she gets a big girl bed at least! hahahah

Adalyn's Playroom : Christmas Edition

I finished decorating the playroom this weekend! Here is how it turned out:

   I covered the beanbag with a blanket to make it more festive!

I made a cute tree banner from foam trees from the dollarstore. They are sticky so I took the backing half off, stuck it on the ribbon and put the backing back on. Super easy!

Here is our Gallery wall. I hope it is full of Christmas art soon! I re-arranged it and added some clipboards. Most of the frames were horizontal before and I found it very hard to find free art. Most people make them the other way!

Here is our Christmas corner. I have our books on the shelf and some in the box. (And these are only the board books. The paper backs are on her shelves upstairs! I will have to show you her room soon!)

I just bought the deer book this week. It is called "Our Little Deer" and it is the sweetest book!

I added a "Make a Banner" to the other side of the wall and stuck some Christmas trees on there too. I think it looks pretty cute. The only thing that is bugging me is the random pink bin. I'm going back to the dollar store to get another red one before I go crazy!

The other side of the wall is pretty boring. I added some cute deer art on the wall and some garland around the door.

So there it is.

In my head I thought it would be more extravagant and busy, but I am happy with how it turned out. Just the right amount. Although I would secretly like a little tree in there for her and some lights too. Maybe I will be updating the post soon! :)

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Adalyn's Playroom - Birthday Edition!

Since I decorated the play room for Halloween I had to decorate it for her birthday as well. I wanted it to be festive since we had a party for her too and had lots of people in the house. I love to decorate for all occasions! I can't wait for the Christmas decorating coming up. I think I might start this weekend, at least in the playroom! Here are a few pictures of the playroom!

 We had balloons of course! Addy loves them!
 New birthday art in the frames (sorry about the sun!)
 All of her birthday books

 I made a new colourful tissue paper banner
 What do you think?!

I can't believe my baby will be ONE tomorrow!!!

Adalyn's First Birthday Party

Did you notice I haven't posted all week!? I have returned to work and we are trying to figure out a routine around here. It has been hard, Adalyn and I are both exhausted! We are hoping to have a bit better week this week! Not last weekend but the weekend before we had Adalyn's birthday party! It was a great day, lots of Addy's friends were here and she got lots of lovely presents! I thought I would share a few pictures!

Here is how we deorated the kitchen:

Our colours were pink and gold and we had a cupcake theme!
 The sweet table was a big hit!
 I made eight kinds of cupcakes: peanut butter, oreo, chocolate mint, chocolate, vanilla, coconut, snickers and maple bacon. Yes bacon...with real bacon in it and on top! There were only two left of those ones!

 We decorated the cupboards with cupcake cutouts. I made an awful punch (it was wayyyyyyyy too sweet) and had cute pink and gold paper straws with mason jars.

I made a cute chalkboard print using chalk markers instead of chalk.
And I decorated the mantle but didn't get a picture! Here is Addy's Aunt Shan sitting in front of it. I printed out her monthly photos, made a 3D card stock name and glittered it, and glittered mason jars to hold hot pink flowers. Cute right?

Here is my little princess wearing the adorable crown  my mom and dad bought her. I made the highchair felt ONE banner and gold paper banner.
Here she is with my husband and I
(Do you see her head garland on the wall to the left? I made that. I used different head shots from her first year)
And here she is diving into her cake
Aunt Jaclyn gets photo credit for this one!

It was a great day and I am so happy to have photos to show Adalyn when she is a little bit older!!!
I have other things I want to show you this week but we will have to see how the week goes! lol


P.S Our little miss will be one year old on Wednesday! Where does the time go!?
