When I was planning Avery’s first birthday party, I used her bedroom as inspiration for my color palette. I wanted to order decorations that were multi-functional. I knew that I was going to spend a little bit of money on decorations, and if that were the case I didn’t want to have to throw them away when I was finished with the party.
I searched online for a lot of things that I could use both at the party and in the girls nursery to spice it up a bit. Living in an apartment, we can’t paint the walls, so it’s easy for their room to look kind of dull. I knew that I could add some of these decorations not only to give the room some color, but also to add a bit of flair to the room.
While searching the internet, I was surprised with how many items could be used for both a birthday party and in the bedroom.
