I’m so excited to finally share MacKenlee’s nursery.  You may have already seen a lot of these photos on People Babies in their adorable article yesterday.

Here’s a little about her sweet nursery…  I took my time finding the perfect pieces to make sure it was exactly what I wanted.  I knew the nursery needed to be a soft pink/blush with a mix of neutrals, so my first purchase was her crib and matching dresser/changing table.  Her crib is convertible and will grow with her into a toddler bed.  The changing table topper is removable, so it will be just a dresser once she no longer needs diaper changes.

Next was a glider.  We knew we’d spend many, many hours rocking baby girl, so we wanted a comfortable place to sit.  Our glider and rocking ottoman is already well loved.  We use it every night as part of her bedtime routine and I use it throughout the day when I nurse MacKenlee.

I teamed up with the incredibly sweet Tori from New Arrivals, Inc. to create the perfect linens.  I had my heart set on a white linen crib skirt that was flowy and laid beautifully on the floor…  Tori designed the perfect skirt!  She made matching white linen curtains with a pink ribbon detail.  The crib blanket and throw pillow were monogrammed in matching shades and add such a special touch to her room.  A big thank you to Tori for all her help in creating this precious space in our home.

Side note: How stinking cool is it that baby girl has a bedding set and paper flower set named after her?!

I went back and forth and back and forth over the walls.  I really wanted wallpaper, but in the end decided that a neutral paint would be best.  We chose Dunn Edwards paint in “Laced Veil” and it’s perfect.  We’ve had several friends ask for the name so they can use this paint color in their own homes.  It’s a beautiful grey paint that isn’t too yellow or too blue, which is so hard to find.

Here’s a list of everything in the nursery.  If I’ve missed anything, please comment below to let me know.

11 Ways to Make Your Nursery Safe Angela Lanter Hello Gorgeous

11 Ways to Make Your Nursery Safe Angela Lanter Hello Gorgeous

One of the first concerns Matt and I had when we started to plan for Miss MacKenlee’s arrival was safety.  Of course, I wanted her nursery to be pretty, so we needed to find ways to marry safety and style.  We partnered with Nationwide’s Make Safe Happen Program (makesafehappen.com) to help educate other parents and parents-to-be about how to keep your babies safe.  Check out the Make Safe Happen App for new safe sleep, safe nursery content and tips.

If you listen to Hello Bump Podcast, then you’ve been on this baby product and nursery journey with us.  You also know that Matt is a true researcher, so he spent a ton of time studying baby safety.  After doing our homework, we started to put our research to good use and took steps to make our home more baby-friendly.  We created the video below to show you some of the ways we made our little one’s nursery safe along with our list of practical tips that all new parents need to know.

11 Ways to Keep Your Baby and Nursery Safe

  1. Outlet Plugs.  I thought we’d start with the most obvious safety tip first: covering your electrical outlets.  This way nothing can be shoved into the outlets.

  2. Knob Covers.  Doorknobs, cabinet pulls, oven knobs and faucets all need to be locked for baby’s safety.  And don’t forget to check your windows and install stops.
  3. Keep the Crib Empty.  Remove all blankets, toys, stuffed animals and even bumpers to keep your little one safe while sleeping.  You want to make sure to use a firm mattress, fitted sheet and sleep sacks/swaddles for the safest sleeping environment.  Get more tips for safe sleeping in this video.
  4. No Cords on Windows.  Be sure that your window treatments don’t have hanging or looped cords that are reachable to prevent accidents.
  5. Secure all electrical cords.  Use zip ties to secure cords to furniture so there are no loose wires.
  6. Anchor Furniture.  As your baby grows, they naturally want to climb.  Keep them safe by anchoring any shelves, dressers, changing tables, etc. to the wall.11 Ways to Make Your Nursery Safe Angela Lanter Hello Gorgeous
  7. Baby Monitor.  Setting up a baby monitor in the nursery eases your nerves since you can see what your little one is doing at any given moment.
  8. Use the Safety Straps.  Regardless of your baby’s size, always use the safety strap on your changing table and keep one hand on your baby to prevent any rolling incidents.
  9. Keep Changing Table Clear.  Once baby starts to grab and grasp items, keep the changing table clear of any products or caps they may grab and put in their mouth.
  10. Move Crib Away from Windows.  Remember, babies like to climb, so keep their bed away from any windows.
  11. Keep Your Windows Closed.  Never leave your little one unattended in a room with an open window.

My Baby Shower – Decor and Details

I’m so excited to share this post with y’all!  In case you missed it, earlier this month I shared what I wore to my Ohio baby shower in this post.  The shower was hosted at the Sheraton in Cuyahoga Falls, in the room overlooking the river.  I’m sharing the shower and all the fun details with you in today’s post.  This week on Hello Bump Podcast, Matt and I chatted about our trip home to Ohio and the shower…  But now, I get to actually show you how everything turned out.

First up, and let’s be honest, most importantly, is desserts.  The desserts and dessert table were adorable.

My mom and cousin Mindy made these darling white and pink wreaths that you see above.  If you look closely, the details are so cute.  The wreath on the far left has a rocking horse and the wreath on the far right has a tiny white dress.  Don’t miss the white pumpkins with pink tutus ad rose gold pumpkins along the ledge as well.

My mom and cousin repurposed this changing table as the welcome sign at the entrance of the shower.  I love that they found a Hello Gorgeous pillow.

The gold pumpkin on the top shelf was our guestbook.  Guests signed in with a white marker, so cute!

The pom poms on the middle shelf were all over the shower and so cute.  The tissue paper pom poms were from Paper White Designs.

On the bottom shelf, the white blanket was mine as a baby and was knitted by my mom’s best friend’s (my  Mama Jean) grandmother.  Don’t you love the Hello Bump sign?!  Under the sign is a stack of my favorite books as a little girl.

I loved this little corner.  My mom and cousin Mindy made these pumpkins: UGA for daddy, the glam pumpkin (hello pink lashes) with a baby pink pumpkin in the belly for me and even a Soka pumpkin too!

Along the other wall was a clothesline of baby girl clothes from one of my favorite brands, Little Me.

My Aunt Patty made these cute Welcome napkin holders paired with gold straws for each place setting.

Last but not least, the favors.  Essie nail polish is hands down my favorite polish brand, so of course I’m going to pass down my pink polish love to my little girl.  Loved the personal touch of the Essie pink polishes with the “Tickled Pink” tags made also by my Aunt Patty.

Aren’t all the details and special touches so perfect?  The shower couldn’t have been more perfect.  I loved the pink, white and gold, “our little pumpkin” theme.  Everything was so pretty and feminine and special.  The amount of thought and time that everyone put into the shower was evident in all of the pretty little details.  A huge thank you to my mom, cousin Mindy, Aunt Gina, mother-in-law, cousin Jen and more who all pitched in to make this day of celebration so beautiful and full of love.  I hope  you enjoyed this peek into our special day.
