Toddler Halloween Tea Party…

 

….

With Halloween coming closer day by day and Emilia at an age where she is able to understand what happens I wanted to explain this festivity to her but since most of it are way to scary, bloddy or else I decided to go with a cute Halloween Tea Party appropriate for a toddler.

I have found this adorable childrens plate set on amazon and thought this would be a great starting point from where I can build up my Halloween Tea Party table setting. The cute colors hit the right spot as well since we are in a total pink and blush phase at the moment plus kittens are always a good choice with Emilia.

The coffee table was the perfect size for the set up. The right height and not to small or too big. To add some drama (cause I love a dramatic setting) I went with an all black sequin table cloth we also used for Emilia´s Minnie Mouse birthday party. Some other spooky elements I loved were the bat balloon, the little ghosts, the black candles and the adorable checkered pumpkin.

Are you celebrating Halloween with your little ones in any way ??

There are few things I enjoy as much as setting a table for a festive holiday dinner or for hosting our friends. It is always so much fun to choose a theme and color and work my way through. From placemats to napkins to candles and table decor. 

For this years Fall table scape I went with a Golden Fall theme. Sunflowers!! To make the yellow really pop and set it apart I decided to go with a dark shade of blue and it turned out fabulous. My husband also liked it a lot and he usually doesn´t care too much abou these kinds of things.

The first piece I got was the yellow gingham table cloth. The perfect yellow and pattern to beginn with. After that I ordered plain napkins in yellow and got a huge bunch of sunflowers. The sunflowers are the center piece of the table so I worked my way around. The golden candle holder are a staple in our home and I used them all the time. 3 of them are on my sidebord as year round decor. I also have these in silver as well as black. In my opinion they are perfect for so many ocassions and the price point is amazing. 

Now for the blue part I got these round woven placemats. I also like to mix and match patterns so I got these blue gingham plates for appetizers. They are a little smaller than your average plate and pop right out under the yellow napkin.

Also aren´t these glossy candles candles the prettiest you have ever seen ? They are super affordable and to way to amazing to burn down. 

Are you hosting for Fall or at least for Thanksgiving or do you like being invited to eat?

Shared Girl´s Room – Peony Wallpaper and Blush Walls….

 

….

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

I have been dying to finally share this room with you. I envisioned how it could look long before I knew that we were going to have a second girl. It turned out even better than I thought and it is definitely my favorite room of the house.  We are spending our mornings and evenings in the girl´s room and it is just amazing at how much love you can put into a single room. 

The Girl´s Shared Room

Color Theme

When thinking about the color theme for a girls room pink immediately comes to my mind. I wanted to dial it down a bit and went with a light blush shade. It is super subtle and on the cooler side. The main colors of the wallpaper are rose, blush and olive green. A few wooden and gold accents round up the whole room.

The Wallpaper

The lead piece of the shared girl´s room is the peonies wallpaper. I have looked for a flower wallpaper everywhere and found the one of my dreams on Wayfair. It has been quite expensive but it will probably stay until they move out plus it ties the room toghether perfectly and even my husband loves it. He usually doesn´t care about decor and “stuff” like that. From here on I went with a soft blush wall color for all of the walls. You can have a look at the before of the nursery here. 

After that all I had to do was to find matching pieces. The curtains have been the easiest pieces cause the lenght was just right and the color matches perfectly with the leaves in the wallpaper. These are also blackout curtains I use during the day. We have shutters for the night.

Furniture 

All of the furniture we have in the girls room is from Ikea. Literally everything. I personally love Ikea and think the furniture is pretty good and affordable. Also we probably change it up every few years since the girls are still growing. 

The cribs we have are the same cause I wanted to have a symmetrical look on the wallpaper wall. In the middle of the two cribs is a small shelf where I put some cute nursery decor as well as keepsake pieces, gifts and photos from the girls.

To store all the clothing and all the other things we need for the girls we have two closets. One for the clothes and one for all the other things. In the middle of these two there is the changing station. It is the Hemnes changing station and the same we used with Emilia. I have added some new things like the wooden storage options and paper boxes as well as a mobile. Helena loves the mobile on the changing station and laughs at it all the time. It is the cutest thing.

This will always be my favorite room watching my girls grow up and play and hopefully have the best relationship toghether.
