Have a baby due around or on Earth Day (April 22)? Our beautiful planet makes a wonderful inspiration for a baby shower. Here are two ideas for Earth-inspired baby showers with décor, sweets and personalized baby gifts ideal for bringing this worldly theme to life.
Show some love for planet Earth with green and blue colored cupcakes, personalized onesies, and décor. (Shown: Graphic Fun and Modern Name personalized onesies; cupcakes by Sweet Treats by Susan, décor by One Charming Party)
Incorporate nature-inspired treats, décor, and personalized baby gifts to celebrate Mother Nature (and the mama-to-be). (Shown: Hoot Hoot personalized growth chart; pudding treats by Martha Stewart Living; décor by On To Baby)
Our personalized baby gifts aren’t just adorable, we make sure they’re good for your little ones, as well as the planet. You can read our Three Ways We’re Green blog post to learn more.
As you know, we often create fun freebies in addition to our line of personalized baby gifts, 1st birthday shirts, big sister shirts, and big brother shirts and have stored the newest ones on our Fun page. Over the years we’ve been asked about different projects, like the Month-by-Month Printable Onesies and the Burp Cloths How-To, which had been archived. Well now we’ve updated the Fun page to showcase all of the various freebies we’ve created so you can take advantage of all our DIY goodies, games, and more whenever you want.
Celebrating a kiddo’s birthday? The Fun page has several projects to help make a birthday party really festive, from hats to interviews to printable infographics, all inspired by our collection of 1st Birthday Shirts.
Planning a baby shower or just want a fun project to do with the kids? You can’t go wrong with the DIY Flag Pennant, Crayon Bag Tutorial, or Easy No Sew Tutu.
The DIYs for moms, like lunch notes and planning forms, make treasured keepsakes, because we know how fast time flies and wee ones change and grow. That’s one of the main reasons we love creating personalized growth charts, 1st birthday shirts, and big brother shirts, as well as freebies.

When designing our line of personalized baby gifts, big sister shirts, and big brother shirts, we look for inspiration everywhere, including in the kitchen! When we saw this amazingly delicious (and super pretty!) recipe for Bunny Bark by Bakerella on People.com, all we could think was, “Wow, we love pastels!” Ok, our first thought was “Get in ma belly!” but you know what we mean.
Pastels may not be bold, but these happy hues work just as well for boys as they do for girls, especially when mixed in with bright colors. Our big brother shirts and big sister shirts are proof of that!
Pastel blues and greens!

Carly is a married mama of two adorable kiddos – Eva and Calvin – who started blogging way back in 2006. Carly loves to share all kinds of recipes, style, home decor, and parenting advice, as well as lots of expert tips on how to live well as a family of 4 in a small space. A nut free family ever since Eva was diagnosed with a nut allergy, Carly also started a very informative site to help all of those other parents with little ones in the same nut-free boat.

We recently incorporated a thicker, more durable signature paper for our personalized growth charts and now we’ve got another announcement – we’ve extended the length of all of our personalized growth charts by a full 6” — the side ruler on each design now measures up to 66″!!
Now these adorable personalized baby gifts will last even longer, allowing you to record even more memories and milestones for the kiddos in your family.

What do you think about our new, longer personalized growth charts?
You know what they say about all work and no play, so even though designing personalized baby gifts, big sister shirts and big brother shirts isn’t dull by any means, we decided to have a little fun and host our very first Instagram contest.
We asked our followers to regram the adorable pic of Jack in his Color It Up Big Brother T shirt for the chance to win a choice of any of our big brother shirts or big sister shirts. And we’re thrilled to announce that @rcpinnegar, who also tagged friends to earn extra entries, was our winner! We can’t wait to hear big brother t shirt or big sister tshirt will be chosen!
Ok, back to work designing more personalized baby gifts!!
Do you have any fun plans for spring break? If not, here are a few fun ideas for the family:

As business people, we know our customers rely on us to offer them the best quality personalized baby gifts around. And as parents, it’s what we demand of ourselves and wouldn’t give anything less to our own kids. This is why we’re always paying attention to what’s on the market and looking for ways to be even better.
And while we’ve always used high quality signature paper for our personalized growth charts, we recently discovered an even thicker, more durable cotton-based art paper to use, so of course we had to get it! We have and always will continue to strive to keep our line of personalized baby gifts at the peak of perfection so our beloved customers know they only get the best when they come to us.
We have another exciting announcement about our personalized growth charts coming up very soon, so keep your eyes open. And if you’d like some ideas of how to hang your child’s growth chart, here are a few links to ideas:

We love a monogram. It’s sophisticated and special, with an initial that brands an item as its owners. And when it comes to baby shower and 1st birthday party themes, it’s extra special to incorporate monograms into the décor, as well as coordinating personalized baby gifts.
Here’s some inspiration for monogrammed parties and gifts:
This Monogram & Elephant Preppy Baby Shower with monogrammed drink station and dipped Oreos is very on trend, and just plain adorable. (Hostess With the Mostess)
Even if a baby’s gender and/or name isn’t known, use the last name initial on personalized onesies for a thoughtful, custom gift. (Shown: Scallop Monogram, Modern Monogram, and Classic Monogram personalized onesies)
Bright greens and blues (and monogrammed sweets) bring this Frog Prince 1st birtday party to life. (Frog Prince Paperie)
When celebrating a big day, 1st birthday shirts with the birthday boy or girl’s initial make excellent gifts that can be enjoyed all year long. (Shown: Cake Time, Roaring Racecar, Fun to Be One 1st Birthday shirts)
Have you incorporated monograms into a baby shower or 1st birthday party and did you give monogrammed personalized baby gifts as well?
Right now pastels are all the rage in fashion, but when it comes to nursery décor, they are in demand all year long. Perfect for both baby boys and girls, these tones may be soft, but their impact is strong.
We’ve found some pretty pastel colored nurseries and chose personalized growth charts that would add even more sweetness to these rooms.
We love this eclectic room with multiple pastel shades with small pops of bright colors, it has a real uplifting feel to it, so we’d add in the Balloon Party personalized growth chart which mirrors that same look and feel. (Image found on Spot the Penguin)
Soft and dreamy, this whimsical nursery has a beautiful pastel aqua paint color and a mix of art that the Woodland Fun personalized growth chart would easily accent. (Apartment Therapy)
Simple and sophisticated, the pastel mint green and yellow nursery is grounded by a soothing taupe, similar to the Picture Me personalized growth chart. (On to Baby)
Neutral without being boring because of the pastel robin’s egg blue wall and accents, we think all these adorable birdhouses need a few birds to go with them, like those in the Hoot Hoot personalized growth chart.(Interiorzine)
Which of these pastel rooms with personalized growth charts is up your alley?
