A Great Idea for a Child’s Bedroom (or what to do with that baby announcement you have saved)


Recently my friend and running partner gave her kids’ room a makeover. And she did the cutest thing with each of her children’s baby announcements; I just had to share it with all of you. I think it is such a great idea and I wish I had come up with it myself so I could take all of the credit.

She put each of her three daughters’ birth announcements in cute frames and put them on the table next to each child’s bed. Such a simple idea, but such an easy reminder to where they started and how far they (and you) have come. Plus don’t all kids love to look at their baby pictures?

Unfortunately, we never did birth announcements with any of our kids. The twins came very early and the first few months were up and down. Not exactly a great time to send out birth announcements especially when we didn’t know what was going to happen with our new babies. Our next baby was early too and I never got around to making her birth announcements. But I love this idea so much that I decided to make mock birth announcements and print them just so I can frame them for their rooms (almost 7 and 4 years late).

What do you think of this idea? Do you love it as much as I do? What did you do with your leftover birth announcements?
