An afternoon with the Land Of Nod #nodtourbus

Recently we had the opportunity to spend a fun afternoon with our friends and family, while The Land Of Nod Tour Bus made a stop at our house! When the cool Nod bus pulled up to our house there was a lot of squealing!

The Land Of Nod set up Teepees and fun toys for the kids to play with during the event. It was the best kind of street party you can imagine!

The big hit of the day was of course the photo booth! Everyone young and old loved using the fun props that Land Of Nod provided.

Each child got to choose a toy to take home with them.

The biggest hit of the party was MUSTACHES!! Who doesn't love a mustache?

A party isn't a PARTY without treats. We had sweet treats from Magnolia Bakery, GoGo Squeez pouches, lemonade and Aladdin provided adorable plastic mason jars and drink dispensers.

The Kids had an absolute blast! Both my kids have asked if the bus could come back again. We would like to thank Land Of Nod for an amazing day. All clothes worn by The Little Style File were provided by Tea Collection. Photography courtesy of Paint The Sky Photography.

Disclosure: We were not compensated for this party. We were provided with treats from magnolia bakery, products from tea collection, Aladdin and GoGo Squeez. All opinions are honest and our own.

Nursery Inspiration: Little Rock Star

Nursery Inspiration: Little Rock Star

I admit it.  I never believed the stories that there isn't as much for baby boys out there as there is for baby girls.  Maybe other people just weren't as good of shoppers as I am?  Maybe they didn't know of Etsy and Pinterest?  And then I found out we were expecting a boy.  And I tried to put a nursery together and all I found were jungle animals until I came across this personalized wall art at The Land of Nod and my nursery inspiration was born.

Based on the colors of the vintage band poster, we picked Serena & Lily bedding and the paint color for the room.  My mom's former student teacher does custom paintings and created a set of four 12" x 12" classic British band canvases.  Super sized letters from Pottery Barn Kids will give the room a personalized touch.  Cherry nursery furniture and a white upholstered rocker/glider are being recycled from the girls' nurseries.  Add in a few kid size instruments as accessories like an acoustic guitar and bongos along with galvanized star and the room is really taking on its own personality.  Lastly, I found an Orb chandelier that really makes an impact and the room is complete.

 

Here's a little spoiler alert for you, the name is not Leo.  I can't wait to show you how the room came together, as soon as it is put together in our new house!  Stay tuned!

Disney Glidden Paint: All That Glitters #disneypaintmom

Last week I shared with you that Mia has chosen the Disney Glidden Paint color Air Kiss for her room. Ever since she had picked out this pretty pink color and the speciality finish all that glitters, she has been dying to see it on her walls! She was ready to say goodbye to the yellow that she has been living with for over 6 years.

Disney Glidden Paint | Before Makeover

I was a little nervous at the thought of putting glitter on Mia's walls. We decided to apply it to just one accent wall. The how to video eased my mind. You are probably wondering if the Disney Glidden Paint "all that glitters" was really that easy to use . It was! I love that it gives the wall a slight shimmer but it isn't too much. I describe it as putting on a clear glitter nail polish. If you do a second coat you would definitely get some more sparkle! Choosing a good pink can be a hard task and again this mom was nervous!

Disney Glidden Paint | Bedroom Makeover

I went with a very light pink because I would rather it be too light than too dark. I did not want a bubble gum pink on Mia's walls. Seeing the paint up on the walls was so exciting.  Mia and I are loving the new pink room!

Mia picked out bedding Sherbet Striped bedding and decided wanted to go with a butterfly theme in her room. I purchased sparkly paper butterflies to put on her large wall. Mia is a Disney girl and still loves princesses. Kristin created wall art from the Disney "I am a Princess" commercial that you probably have seen on television. She also created some fun butterfly graphics. (Its great to have an artsy business partner!) If you love both of the pieces she designed, be on the look out for a free printable in a few weeks!

I cannot wait to share Mia's new bedroom!  We are planning a fun Tangled Princess PJ Party for the big reveal! Stay Tuned!
