A Girly Dinosaur Bedroom

Did you see the hilarious T-Rex shirts by Crazy Dog on Zulily last week?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How great are those?! Olivia loves dinosaurs. I can only assume it’s because she occasionally watches Dinosaur Train on PBS. When I saw those shirts on Zulily, it gave me the idea to do a girly dinosaur theme for her new big girl bedroom. So I set about researching to see how doable this idea would be.

Not surprisingly, most dinosaur decor was for boys—lots of blue, green, red, brown, etc. I did, however, manage to find a few girly dinosaur accessories. Here are a few of my favorites!

A Sweet, Storied Baby Shower

My friend, Lolly, is due with her first baby in May. So this weekend, we celebrated her and baby Sarah June (how cute is that name? don’t you just love it?!). The shower was held at the home of a friend in Charlottesville, VA, and the house itself would have been worthy of a blog post—the entire home looked like it was from the pages of a magazine (or one huge Pinterest pin), gorgeous! But back to the shower. The theme of the shower was “Sarah’s Story Begins,” and the feel was sweet vintage. Our hostesses, Amanda and Erin, did a fabulous job on the decorations and the food, from the hand-sewn circle garland to the mini TBM skewers. They managed to pull off a delicate girly shower with only the slightest hint of pink.
