Lillie's New Bedding

Yesterday we showed lots of photos of the new Beddy's Bedding that we added to Lola's room and today we thought we would share how it looks in Lillie's room! For Lillie's room we went with the Chic White and love how it looks. And Lillie LOVES how soft and cozy the minky fabric inside is and of course she loves how much easier is is to make her bed every morning. You really can't beat making your bed in less than a minute! And I love how tidy it looks! 

Lillie has always loved cozy fabrics so she was so excited when she unzipped it to find this super soft minky fabric inside! 

And here is the other side of her room.

Easy and Fun Bedding for Lola's Room

A couple of months ago we shared some photos of a little girl's room we worked on for some sweet little friend's of ours where we used Beddy's bedding on the beds. Well, Lola absolutely LOVED the idea of being able to zipper up her bed like a sleeping bag and was completely fascinated by it. Right around that time we were working on that room was also when we did the room swap here at our house and we added a daybed to Lola's room. The girls have been making their own beds every morning for a couple of years now, however, when we switched rooms and Lola went to a daybed and Lillie to a full sized bed they started having a harder time making them each morning. If you've ever tried to make a daybed you know it actually is kind of a pain in the neck. Ha! Seriously, though, making a daybed every morning is surprisingly rather frustrating. So I thought we would give the Beddy's bedding a try in her room and see if it helped. She picked out the pink color (it's called Vintage Blush II) and was quite excited when it arrived.

I have to admit, although I figured it was definitely going to help, I was quite surprised at what a HUGE difference it makes! She can literally make her bed now in less than a minute. She just zips it up and puts the pillows on the bed in her little lined up order she has and that's it! And I love that it looks so neat and tidy. She not only loves how easy it is, but she loves that it feels kind of like she is sleeping in a special sleeping bag. We've already washed it a couple of times and I love that when I go to put it back on the bed it's basically just like putting one fitted sheet on the bed and that's it - it's done. It is an investment but keep in mind it has everything you need and makes such a huge difference, especially for daybeds or bunkbeds! And speaking for my two girls, they absolutely love theirs!

Here it is all zippered up. 

The zipper is nice and easy for a child to find and use. 

I love how the pink one opens up to the cute little polka dots. 

It also comes with a ruffled sham and a regular pillow case that matches the inside sheet:

Lola zips it up the whole way each morning but I also think it looks cute if you fold the to part over a little bit.

I still need to add something under the hoop, but I finally painted something on this blank canvas that was under the deer.  

We found a few different bunny pictures she liked and kind of merged them into one. Ha! 

And I painted this deer based off of an adorable deer painting we saw on Joss and Main that she loved but we wanted the deer to be pink. The Joss and Main one was much cuter but it was fun having this be pink to match her room.

We got this rhino head at Target. I think they are sold out now but they have plenty of other adorable ones. We got the Unicorn one for Lillie's room.

And that's it for Lola's room! We also got the bedding for Lillie's room and I will share those pictures tomorrow!

A Mother's Day Brunch with Birch Lane and a Giveaway

We are so excited to be working with our sponsor Birch Lane to bring you a brunch tablescape that would work well not only for Mother's Day but any other spring or summer brunch as well! We love mixing both elegant and more casual pieces for a look that feels special but not too formal. And we are also excited to be hosting a giveaway for a $250 gift card to Birch Lane which you can enter at the bottom of this post!

We used this beautiful Chaplin Large Planter as the centerpiece for our table and filled it with fresh cut branches and tulips. Because it is a planter we just slipped a simple clear vase inside to hold the flowers in water. I love the color and pattern of it and that it looks like an antique!

Then at each place setting we used the Milford Square Dishes which have a slightly more casual and fun feel and then I love the elegance that the Wilmington Gold-Plated Flatware added!  My absolute favorite additions to the table are these O'Keefe Water Goblets. I absolutely positively love them. They remind me of some my great grandmother had. They feel so elegant and fancy yet kind of whimsical too!

We added this Tiana Pillow Cover in Blue. I loved how the large 22" size looks in our wingback chairs.

Here are some other angles of the room: 

We used the Mariana napkins between the dinner and salad plates and then wrapped a small gift for each place setting using some gold dotted wrapping paper and simple navy ribbon and a gold scalloped ribbon.

And on the ends we wrapped some gifts in some navy houndstooth paper tied with a simple navy ribbon.

Over on the sideboard we had a very simple brunch setup with food that I knew my girls would love! We did some fruit, waffles, oatmeal sticks, some croissants (not pictured) and miniature pancakes topped with blueberries (I always make my girls miniature pancakes because they love them, for these photos though I bought some pre-made ones. I wasn't sure I would be able to make that many in exactly the same size for photos - haha!) And then some lemonade.

We served the lemonade in this Classic Glassware Pitcher and these O'Keefe Glasses which are the same style as the water goblets and I just love them!

And then we used several serving pieces like this Milford Rectangular Platter, and the Francesca Serving Bowl to display the food on the sideboard. Then we eventually moved the serving pieces down to the table as can be seen in some of the photos.

The Russo Marble and Wood cake stand in the smaller size was perfect for holding the miniature pancakes!

And guess what?
