Circus Theme Nursery










I was recently discussing nursery themes with someone and decided to show a few images of my circus themed nursery, inspired by a quilt my grandmother had made when I was a little girl.
Since I have spent the last 13 years designing and decorating theme events and parties I have a "built-in" affinity for themeing. Everything HAS to have a theme, it's totally neurotic and usually completely unnecessary but there you have it. Needless to say, being pregnant upped the ante, and I ended up spending hours on e-bay to find the "perfect" elephant planters (I swear it was the hormones), painting the crib to look like a circus cart, and generally driving everyone around me crazy!.... Everyone except one of my very best friends, who like me, is totally into the theme thang! She (can't name names - swore I never would) threw the best circus themed shower a circus obsessed preggo could ever want - complete with cotton candy machine and three ring dinner tables. Oh - and just in case you were wondering... yes... that is a tiger under the crib! I am already thinking of what to do with the baby's room next! (there isn't anything wrong with THAT is there?)

You speak of being hormone coaxed into the circus theme frenzy. That was my excuse when, at 8 months pregnant, my husband came home to find me vaccuuming the walls and ceiling. Ah, the joys of pregnancy...
