The simplest things are usually the most interesting ones! Make these cute bunny ears for your kids. You will need white fabric, pink fabric, wire, wire cutters, scissors and sewing machine. Cut out two strips of fabric, one out of each color, 2″ width as long as the fabric goes. To form the bunny ears, cut the edges into a point. Sew the tow pieces of fabric together leaving a 2″ gap at one end. Turn it inside out and press. Insert a wire that expands the length of the band. Curl the wire in at each end so that it’s not pointy. Close the gap by either hand sewing it or with a machine.

A carnival is probably one of the brightest and coolest themes ever, and it’s perfect for such an event as a kid’s party. Looking for some inspiration? Take a look at this sweet and cheerful party that mom Elvira arranged for her son Mateo’s 1st birthday. It was inspired by the Santa Monica Pier entertainment park, which offers many fun things to do for families. However, it’s madness out there in the spring and summer, so planning a party at home with fancy sherbet colored tones is a much better idea, than going to this park. I love this horse silhouette that used throughout the design concept, pom poms everywhere, cute small vases with flowers and lots of candies, of course. Get inspired!

When a baby is small, he or she doesn’t understand the decor of the room. But remember that toddlers learn to feel and see the beauty around them since that moment when they were born.

All things in the nursery mix very well with each other.
