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?)
