Using a wallpaper border to set the theme can be delightful, and give
Baby something to gaze at while in the crib. (The science of infant
sight and other infant perception has changed in the last 21 years since
my youngest was born, but I was on the right track decorating with
Pandas (easy to see) and different colored balls. Before you know it,
Baby will be asking to borrow the care lol)
Frugal decoration: “Wallies” ™ may have something in the beach theme
(plus clouds!), using stencils is easier than I *EVER* thought it would
be, easier for me than wall paper borders, less expensive too.
http://www.orientaltrading.com may have beach themed decorative items -check
the luau theme (Do keep out of baby’s reach though).
If you choose appealing wall colors (we went with off white, later
painting one wall his favorite color), and add removeable/strippable
decorations, it is easier to transition to the toddler and elementary
Be mindful of window treatments…if you use mini blinds, keep those
cords out of the way of kids. Sorry to preach…but I work in a
hospital…’nuff said. Draping the top of the window with beach print
fabrics of your choice can mean quick, easy changes.
Here’s to a happy and healthy baby,
