Parents often spend a lot of time decorating baby's nursery, which is of course silly because:
1) Baby usually sleeps in a bassinet in mom and dad's room for the first few months;
2) Baby really does not care.
Still, a themed-nursery seemed like a fun project to tackle while we waited around for baby, so we picked out a nursery theme that we would enjoy, and hopefully baby will grow into.
And aside from the actual furniture, it didn't cost us too much cash either.
Welcome to the Leaky Cauldron!
The house colors blanket was crocheted by an awesome friend. The poster frames I picked up at Michael's, on sale for $8/ea.
The last themed-item we plan to get is a toy chest, like this one, that looks a bit like Harry's traveling trunk. At this point, baby doesn't have enough toys to make it a necessity, though I expect that will change quickly.
I do have a few additional decor ideas up my sleeve, should we decide we need to kick the Harry Potter up a notch . . .
A sorting hat.
A dragon mobile.
The Tri-wizard Tournament cup.
These amazing travel posters.
Or a super expensive map of Diagon Alley.
But for now, we're satisfied.
