Circus Inspired Baby Nursery

When we were planning Jaden’s nursery, I knew I wanted it to go with my There’s a Peanut in my Belly circus baby shower that I had. We were inspired by the circus! Bright colors and animals.

Dealing with a very small square room, we had to find unique ways to make it interesting. We used lots of art work on one wall and put furniture on angles so it didn’t feel like a complete box. We used an antique hoosier to store diapers, wipes, lotion etc. and then used the table part as a changing table. When it came down to the crib mobile, we just couldn’t find one that we liked, so we handmade one using items from my baby shower! For extra artwork, we framed wrapping paper from the baby shower, not only did this look adorable but it’s nice having a keepsake from the shower. We also had a banner on the crib that we had used for the baby shower, but don’t worry, we only used that for these pictures and took it down once baby was born (didn’t want a potential choking incident!)
