Avery's 3rd Birthday!

We had a busy weekend celebrating my baby girl turning 3!!
We have done family bdays every year, but this year she asked for a friends birthday and she wanted it at Kid Mania.  She was very specific.  This kids knows what she wants.
So....Sat we had a kids party & Sunday we had the family over to celebrate.
This is the invite we sent to the family:

3 years have flown by!!

Here is the crazy crew at the party on Saturday

Family shot...the only one we got of all 3 of us.  I never seem to be in any pics because I am always the one taking them.

After her party we came home and opened gifts.
She had the best day ever!!

Fun in the tissue paper

Sunday morning was her actual birthday and the day of the family party.  We filled the hallway outside of her door with pink balloons so when she woke up in the morning she walked through all of them.  She came running into our room so excited saying 
"there is a party in my hallway mommy".  It was so cute!
This is the chalkboard wall in her game room right as you walk in.
 We got Avery a Pottery Barn Anywhere Chair!  She LOVES it!
We ordered one for Braden too so they can have similar chairs in the playroom.

After morning cinnamon rolls it was time to get ready for the family party.
Here are some party details:

Dessert Bar

 Avery asked for a pink cake with glitter!  It was delicious.  Vanilla and Pink velvet inside.


Dr. Hargrove

It was such a fun, special weekend celebrating the best thing that ever happened to me.  I am so so blessed to be her Mommy & I cannot wait to add another baby to our family in November!
Next birthday we will be celebrating will be Braden's!
I know every parent can relate, but I wish we could just slow down time!

I found this adorable print from BrimPapery and I must have it.  It completely sums up this chapter of life.

My House of Hargrove-Braden's Nursery Complete!

Over the last few months I have been working on turning Avery's Nursery into Braden's Nursery.
I started with a plan and then it was time to execute.

It is finally done!  Now, we are just ready for him to arrive and officially join our family!  Welcome to Braden's Nursery!

My sweet friend Jennifer from Miss Lulu's (does the best embroidery) gave me this precious door hanger!  I love it.  This is a saying that my mom and I used to say each other so it has special meaning.
I got the barn wood frames at Hobby Lobby and made my own monogram art from my computer.  I placed them on scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby.
The sign above the closet door says "All Because Two People Fell in Love".  I made this on an old piece of wood.  The Vintage Edition art is a Tea towel from H&M that I got for $4.95, then had it framed in old wood.  Custom, cheap, art...love it!

The crib was the same crib I used for Avery's nursery.  Details here.
The bedding is My Baby Sam.

I got the door and the vintage locker at a flea market.  The craft stock B I sold at my barn sales.

I made the art...learn how to make this Barn Art.

 I got the lamp at Target and the frames & accessories are from Home Goods.  One frame is Braden's sonogram, one is of baby Avery and one is of his family...ready to meet him!

Learn all the details on the Mason Jar & Vintage Lighting...where they are from, how to make them.
I refinished the buffet when I did Avery's nursery.

I got this antique trunk at an auction
Here is a picture of Geoff when he was a baby, Braden's middle name is Austin...(he is named after my favorite city) so I made this art for this room.  The barn is an ornament from Garden Ridge for $3.99.
 These items I have collected from lots of different places.

 I changed the ribbon on these drapes but they are the same ones from Avery's nursery.  I used an old piece of barn wood at the top to finish it off.  The pillows are from various places.
The grainsack ones are from Etsy.  The numbered pillow is from Belk.

 I got this old burlap sack and made a faux roman shade.  It is super easy and I will be doing a "how to" this week.  Milk art is from Garden Ridge.

Thanks for taking a tour of Braden's nursery.  Let me know if you have any questions.
