Guess how much I love you


The children´s book “Guess how much I love you” is a huge favourite of mine, and it was the first book that my mother bought for my daughter – the first book she ever got – while she was still in my belly. I remember feeling so emotional when I read it (still pregnant, and with my hormones all over the place), and I imagined how wonderful it would be to read it for my child.

Guess-How-Much-I-Love-You

 

If you´re not familiar with the book, you can read about it here.

On one of my inspirational tours around the internet, I found this adorable theme! It´s a “Guess how much I love you” party, and it´s just too cute!

It could work well as a baby shower theme as well – it´s also suitable if you don´t know the gender of the baby, since the colors are “gender neutral”. Also, it would make an adorable Easter party!

This pretty cake is simply stunning, and really pulls the party together!

Sweet cookies! In this particular party, it was for a little girl turning one, but I think it works just as good for a toddler, and also for a boy!

Wrapping the chocolate is a great effect – I think it would be the perfect guest favor!

Lovely dessert table!

In late Summer, we’re moving to a new apartment.We’ve already started sending our thing to storage, so our apartment almost doesn’t feel like “home” anymore. Therefore, I’m dreaming about decoration our new home more than ever! Right now, it’s decoration the room of my little baby girl which is occupying my mind. I really want the perfect wall decal for her new room.

I love the idea of trees in a nursery! It reminds me of life, nature, and movement! Also, it works for both a little prince and a princess!

 

I have a fascination for Peter Pan, and would love to use a Peter Pan wall decal. I was so inspired by a picture I found on Pinterest

Little Lamb first birthday party


Yes, these days I’m sort of obsessed with first birthday parties. But my very own little baby girl is turning one – in just a few days. Of course, this will be celebrated in style – and I’ll share the party pictures with you!

But, today I’ll share another party with you – one that I’ve had in my inspiration folder for some time. And this party is so well executed that it makes me want to cry a little (no, not really, or…. yes…actually it does), because I realize that this amount of detail is an enormous undertaking! Perhaps I’ll aim at something a bit simpler for my daughters party, but I’m definately inspired! It’s simply stunning! Here’s the gorgeous Little Lamb party from Half Baked:

I love the colour scheme in the wonderful neutrals. I feel it gives the party a sophisticated feel, while it’s still a child’s birthday

I think it was a great idea to play on the colours that’s in the interior of the house. That way, you get a visual impression that is chic and put together!

Love the wine bottles in their knitted sweaters!

The sweet little lamb is used throughout the theme, together with fluffy, cuddly, and soft materials to really highligt the feel of the party.

I’m still searching for the theme, and today I stumbled upon the most adorable theme for a little lady:

Wall quotes for the nursery


For those of you who follow the blog, you know that I’m searching for inspiration for my daughters nursery (see here and here) in our new apartment.

My latest obsession is wall art for the nursery, and today I want to show you my favourite wall quotes for the nursery. All of the quotes I’ve picked out will be perfect for both a boy or a girl.

All of the quotes can be found on Etsy (I love it!), and most of them you can get as both a wall art and as a wall sticker. Some of them you can also get as a DIY – then you just print it yourself at a photo shop! Here are the quotes:

Cute as a Button


My very own princess is already 8 months old! Time really do fly by so fast, and I just want her to stay little a while longer… But she’s too busy growing up, exploring the world and all that it offers. My little baby girl…

Oh well, I guess that’s a good thing. And, in just four short months, she’s turning ONE – and that needs to be celebrated – in style! For a planning freak, and entertaining junkie like myself, that almost means we’re late with the planning already!

Therefore, I’ve started browsing for inspiration for her first birthday party. My first WOW-find is this “Cute as a Button party” designed by Kiss me Kate, which would also work great as a baby shower. It’s just TOO CUTE:

Such lovely colours – and it works for both a boy and a girl with just minor adjustments!

So much detailing in the decorations!

Such a clever guest favor!

What do you think? Isn’t this a good alternative for a first birthday party?

Pink glamorous nursery


I’m still searching the web for inspiration for my daugther’s nursery in our new apartment that we’re moving into soon. Today, I stumbled upon this gorgeous nursery. To be honest, it is probably a bit too glamorous for us, but oh so beautiful, with a wonderful colour scheme. This is definately going in my inspiration folder!

I love love love the wallpaper and the flyffy white sheep skin as a rug!

Little treasures that this little princess will probably admire as she gets older

What do you think? Isn’t this just the most glamorous nursery?
