Baby Boom {New Baby Bedding and Decor from Love Elaine}

Just to clarify - no baby boom or bump over here ;) But lately, there has been a baby boom with my friends, and I couldn't be happier! Because, I've been BUSY creating custom nursery decor! Its been so much fun helping my friends decorate the rooms for the babies - so without further ado, here's a peek at what I've been up to lately!

Bunting Baby Quilt for the super sweet Caris Brinkley
 My friend Christy was expecting a girl (Caris, who arrived in May and is oh so cute!), and once Christy saw the pink and green fabrics from Riley Blake's Indian Summer line she was sold. The pink isn't too pink and the green isn't too lime green - which worked perfectly for her nursery.  We did the quilt, crib bumper, crib skirt, curtain and bunting banner to hang above the changing table.

Next up are my friends Stinson and Gardner. They were expecting a boy (he has since arrived and I get to meet him TONIGHT!) and determined to go with Lime Green and no "theme."  So, after providing about 24 different fabric options (luckily I LOVE them :), they pulled a fast one and decided to go with Dear Stella's Anchor's Away fabrics and the rest is history! The nursery came together quickly after that - and I just LOVE the combination of navy, baby blue and orange. We did a crib skirt, crib mattress bumpers (so they don't have to be removed!), changing pad covers and matching pillows. There will definitely be more photos to come, once I get my super talented photographer friend Callie to come to Richmond again :)

 Another boy is on the way for my friend Katherine (my super fabulous model for the Mommy & Me aprons with her adorable daughter Norah!). Katherine already had her colors picked out, and we decided to go shopping at local fabric store Ufab. Perhaps not surprisingly, but we both were thinking "chevron" without telling the other, so after looking around for a bit we were both SUPER excited to find the perfect chevon print in grey, blue, red and green - all of the colors that would go perfect with the rug, chair and quilt already in the nursery. I made 90" long panel curtains, crib bumper and changing pad covers, along with a small pillow for the super fun red chair!

I absolutely LOVED being a part of such a wonderful time for my friends! Soon, I'll be offering all of the baby nursery items in my Etsy Shop for the masses (as soon as I can get the photos taken), but in the meantime, if you are interested in any of the above items or something you don't see, please send me an email at christen (at) or visit my etsy shop and send me a message.
