Harper & Weston's Room Updates

Over the past year I have changed Harper’s room and decor around because Weston is now her roommate! For a little while anyway.

Please excuse the Christmas decor, some of these were taken a while back.

The biggest change was replacing the rug.

I have wanted to do this for a while. I happen to come across this opalhouse rug on clearance for $89 at Target one day. I did not buy it when I first saw it. I went home and thought about it and went back to get it later that day. It was $189.

They do not carry this rug anymore but they do have a huge collection of the pretty rugs here.

I changed out the butterfly curtains for light neutral ones. It has made a huge difference in the room. I also picked these up from Target, I really like the material. These are the line of curtains here.

The only thing is in store they were called white something, I’m not sure if they are the same as sour cream online.

Here is Weston before he could walk. Harper and Weston love playing in their room. I only keep a few toys in here and lots of books.

We found this adorable lamp at..you guessed it Target on clearance for under $9. It still sells for $30 online. Target is truly my favorite place for decor. Especially when it’s on clearance.

This nightstand is also new to the space. It use to belong to me when I was a teen. It needs a fresh coat of paint and I’ve been waiting on nice weather to do that and change the hardware.

This cute wolf wall decor ( that Weston loves ) was also a Target find and only under $6. Its no longer available but they have a few adorable ones available. I had to take the print off the wall, Weston was able to reach it.

Also Harpers bedding is new. She had a black and white cat print and I found this blush pink opal house set on clearance.

You can see the post I did few years back on the wall art by Pixers Here.

In February of 2016 I shared this room after we completed it for Harper, you can read that here.

Easter Basket Ideas

 

Easter is on April 21st this year and I am sharing some ideas on what to put in those baskets that I have used or similar to them . For babies, Toddler/preschooler and teens.

The photo collage above are items I chose with Harper in mind. Last year she received everything from the top minus the baby shark ( Weston received for his birthday ) and the pretend make up and caboodle case is for this year.

Almost everything was purchased from Amazon. The easter matching eggs are still a hit along with the books and dvd. The baby shark is Weston’s favorite and it sings part of the song and have a replaceable battery plus It is small and perfect for a basket.

Peppa pig is also a huge favorite around here and anything arts and crafts.

Last year I found this bunny basket at Tjmaxx for Harper. Tjmaxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods are great to find cute baskets. Other great gifts are surprise bags or eggs filled with small toys and candy. Harper is obsessed with surprise bags. Along with chocolate bunnies and candy I like to mix in fruit snacks and snacks like goldfish.

Some years the kids would get a sand bucket filled with goodies. The oldest one year had a hat. The easter bunny plans on using this basket again this year and buckets for the older kids.

Weston was only a few weeks old last easter but he still got a easter basket. I used a soft basket and filled it with finger puppets, wubbanub, rattles and teething toys.

This year he has a panda basket I found at AC.Moores but can not find it online. He will get beach items, like pails and towels and a few small toys with toddler safe snacks.

I like soft books for babies and the bunny and carrot teether are adorable and useful, the wubbanub is great idea if you use them. I also think a soft basket is a good choice and can be used for storage after.

My older boys had these drawstring bags filled with candy, chocolate, toys, money, flip flops ( great teen idea ) and those little debbie easter cakes. Even though they are older they still like water guns and bubbles but they love getting candy and snacks.

They all got huge water bottles which they used for baseball and summer because they drink a lot of water.

If you have kids in spring sports like mine baseball batting gloves, socks and balls are always a good idea.

For our furry family member Zoey, she always gets a toy and some treats.

I have to admit I still have a few more items to get but I’m thankful Easter is at the end of the month this year. With all the birthdays we have in March it gets busy around here.

You can read about Weston’s wild one party here.

You can visit my easter idea page on Amazon here to see all the items listed available on amazon.

I will also be sharing the kids baskets this year on easter via my instagram.

For the month of April I plan on sharing my new workspace, the chalkboard hall I painted in November, some decor updates and Weston’s first year and favorite baby items.
