A Birthday Surprise

For Peaches' birthday present, we furnished and decorated her room. For three days she slept in the guest bedroom while we worked in the evenings putting it together. It meant a lot to me to sew her curtains myself. She was so happy and loves to sit in her bed and read ballerina books.
Some of you may recognize the beautiful Madonna and Child plaque above the lamp on the nightstand, as it was made by the talented Kristin at Small Treasures. It is such a perfect addition to the room.

If you're interested in all the details:

I ordered the Jamestown pink baby toile fabric from Warehouse Fabrics Inc. A friend of mine sewed the bed skirts for me as I didn't think I would have the time to do both the curtains and the bed skirts.
The furniture is the Stanley Young America Ma Marie collection dressing chest and three drawer night stand in french white antique. I am lucky enough to have a local store (Shower Me With Love) that is a Young America flagship store and offers it at a discounted price.
The white wrought iron beds are from Walmart.
The white hemstitch duvets and shams from Overstock.
The canopy drapes are from Pottery Barn Kids.
The antique white wrought iron chandelier is from Gallery Lighting.
The white window hardware is from Bed, Bath and Beyond.
The scalloped oval mirror is from Lowes.
I used pink wired satin ribbon from Michaels as accents for the ribbon, drapes and curtains.
The white roman shade drapes came with the house, and I loved them.
There is not a picture here, but on another wall are wooden pink letters (similar to these on Etsy) that spell out her name.
Underneath is a large pink toile floor pillow from Home Goods on the floor which is the perfect cozy reading spot.
On that wall there is also a whimsical Oopsy Daisy monogrammed pink giraffe growth chart by which you can get at Rosenberry Rooms.
The pink and white polkadot piggy bank was a baby gift from Tiffany & Co.
The guardian angel statue is from our local dollar store.
The lamp and lamp shade are from Walmart (sorry I can not find a link).
The personalized baptism pillows are from Personalization Mall.

It's not actually the material things that matter. I think it's more on how you have showed it to that particular person how he/she means a lot to you. And I think, you've made your part great.
