When to Wear Big Sister Shirts & Big Brother Shirts during the School Year

We think one of the best times to wear a big brother t shirt or big sister tshirt is to the hospital on the day the new little sibling arrives, but since we’re in back-to-school mode, we thought we’d offer up a few great times during the school year that kids can wear their big sister shirts and big brother shirts to show off family pride.

BigSiblingTees1

If kids have become a “big” over the summer or if their “little” is now attending the same school, a sibling tee is a great choice for their first day of school outfit. (Shown: Chic Style and Double Trouble big sister shirts and big brother shirts)

BigSiblingTees2

Like the first day of school, picture day is a perfect opportunity to wear a favorite sibling tee. (Shown: Super Big Brother T shirt and Big Sister Tshirt)

BigSiblingTees3

Kids have a class recital or play? A big sister tshirt or big brother tshirt worn on stage will look even cuter with their “little” cheering them on in the audience in coordinating personalized onesies or tees. – (Shown: Rock On Big Brother T shirt and Big Sister Tshirt; Kids Play Big Brother T shirt and Big Sister Tshirt)

 

BigSiblingTees4 For Show & Tell Day, a kiddo expecting a new sibling soon can announce to classmates their new sibling status with a tee. (Shown: Something To Say and Color It Up big sister shirts and big brother shirts)

And by the way, these times are also great reminders to mark kiddos’ heights on their personalized growth charts.

Get Inspired for Your Nursery: Herringbone Accents

We love stripes and chevron patterns in nursery décor (and décor in general to be honest!), so when we saw a whole gallery of herringbone patterned walls in nurseries on Project Nursery (here), we totally fell in love with this ultra-chic shape.

We found some cool nursery designs with herringbone accents and paired our personalized growth charts with them.

Herringbone2

The orange, gray and blue in the transportation themed On the Go personalized growth chart would fit in perfectly with this colorful nursery with a stylish herringbone patterned rug. (Beechwood 1928 blog)

Herringbone4

This super colorful herringbone stenciled wall creates an uplifting vibe in this nursery and the complementary Balloon Party personalized growth chart would make an excellent addition. (The Kurtz Corner)

Herringbone3

Love love love this herringbone patterned dresser! The ice cream themed We Scream personalized growth chart would look sweet in this eclectic, fun nursery (Project Nursery)

Herringbone1

Pops of aqua blue stand out in this neutral hued room with multiple patterned accents, including a herringbone quilt draped over the crib. The Shooting Star personalized growth chart would add a bit more color while being functional too. (via Babble)

Which of these rooms and personalized growth charts is your favorite? Let us know if these rooms have inspired you to incorporate herringbone into your nursery.

Five Fave Famous Brothers

We design big brother shirts and big sister shirts because we love the bond between siblings and hope our shirts help build excitement and pride in those relationships. While our personal all-time favorite siblings are members of our own families (of course!), there are some well-known sibs that we can’t help but admire.

Tomorrow we’ll highlight five of our favorite famous sisters with some complementary big sister shirts, but today it’s all about these famous bros and some big brother shirts.

Brothers5

The original boy band, the Jackson 5 – Marlon, Tito, Jackie, Jermaine, and Michael – still have us dancing and we bet your wee ones would love to have a dance party in the living room to “Rockin Robin” too! (Shown: Rock On Big Brother T shirt)

Brothers2

We’ve watched these two grow from wee babes into mature men and appreciate the modern face they’ve given the royal family. (Shown: Modern Fun Big Brother T shirt in Royal Blue)

Brothers3

Luke and Owen Wilson are funny and talented, with slightly mischievous grins we can’t help but adore. (Shown: Double Trouble Big Brother T shirt)

Brothers4

The BeeGees – Barry, Maurice, and Robin Gibb – were true icons of Disco style and music, and they’re still “Staying Alive” in our hearts. (Shown: Retro Style Big Brother T shirt)

BBQ inspired Personalized Baby Gifts

We’re coming upon the end of summer (sniff sniff), so if you’re planning baby showers or 1st birthday parties over the next few weeks, a barbecue theme can’t be beat!

The food part is easy – anything barbecued, from veggies to ribs or steak, plus all the yummy comfort food side dishes like baked beans, mac n’ cheese, and buttery corn on the cob. Here’s some inspiration for décor, favors, and coordinating personalized baby gifts to bring the theme to life.

BBQ4

Decorations, drinks, and personalized baby gifts in classic red and blue are perfect for an Americana barbecue themed baby shower, or as this one from PopSugar Moms was called – a Baby-Q Shower. Cute! (Shown: Modern Monogram and Beep Beep personalized onesies)

BBQ3

Mason jars make any event feel quaint and special, and you know how we feel about personalized baby gifts, so we just fell in love with this party favor – homemade bubbles in mason jars with each guests name inscribed on the lid – from Maison de Pax. The Happy To Be and Play Party Hat 1st birthday shirts in red and aqua would have made perfect attire for this party!

BBQ2

Mini hay bales along with a gingham tablecloth and cowboy hat add a real Texas BBQ touch to this birthday party’s drink and dessert stations we found on Foodlets. We could easily see the Fun To Be One or Cake Time 1st birthday shirts on the guest of honor at a similarly themed party.

BBQ1

We hope these baby showers, 1st birthday parties, and personalized baby gifts inspired you to have a fun, end of summer barbecue themed bash.Rustic cowboy chic with wood accents and chocolate brown and blue décor and personalized baby gifts is another way to do a Baby-Q Shower, like this one from Hostess with the Mostess.

Nursery Inspiration: Purple & Gray

Looking for some nursery décor inspiration? We’re currently obsessed with pretty purple paired with elegant gray. In darks or lights, the two colors complement each other perfectly and can have a third color added in easily as well, including teal, yellow, pink or green.

We’ve chosen a few royally pretty purple and gray nurseries that we’ve paired with our personalized growth charts we think would look perfect in each.

PurpleGray_1

This purple and gray nursery is as cute as a button and with all of the round décor elements used throughout, we think the Cheeky Dot personalized growth chart would fit right in! (Apartment Therapy)

PurpleGray_4

Lacy, cut out patterns, like those in the Sprinkled Flowers personalized growth chart, keep this charcoal gray and purple nursery from feeling heavy. (Project Nursery)

PurpleGray_3

Soft and sophisticated with a gorgeous gallery art wall and silvered wings, we absolutely love this nursery and would use the equally chic Perfect Pennant personalized growth chart in Slate Gray to accent the lavender and gray space. (Project Nursery)

PurpleGray_2

Want to create a gender neutral nursery that utilizes purple? Lean heavier on the gray and add in small but impactful pops of the pretty hue like in this nursery, which would also look great with the Colorful Words personalized growth chart in Pool & Lime. (Moms Best Network)

Which of these nurseries paired with personalized growth charts is your favorite?

ABOUT A BOY

Last week we wrote about sibling love and the video that had us feeling a bit verklempt and so ready to send a big sister tshirt and little brother onesie to the cute-as-a-button sibs that stole our hearts (click here). Well readers, this week it is Babble that has our hearts melting with What It Really Means To Be a Little Boy’s Mama.

For our sons that will someday become grown men, writer Michelle Horton pretty much says it all.

Here are a few passages we seriously relate to along with some adorable shots of some of our favorite boys in their big brother shirts:

PetiteLemon_KidsPlay

“Being a little boy’s mama means always going, moving, running, energy. It means muddy shoes, bandaged legs, and breath-catching stunts that nearly stop your heart.” (Shown: Kids Play Big Brother T shirt)

PetiteLemon_SuperBrother

“It means playing certain games and watching certain movies that you really have no interest in, and yet still enjoy seeing through the ninja-superhero-karate perspective because it’s his perspective.” (Shown: Super Big Brother T shirt)

PetiteLemon_DigIn

“It means finding rocks hidden around the house.” (Shown: Dig In Big Brother T shirt)

PetiteLemon_RetroStyle

“Being a little boy’s mama will change you — harden you in some places, soften you in others — but will ultimately give the sweetest memories of when, for a brief period, you were everything to a sticky-faced little man.” (Shown: Retro Style Big Brother T shirt)
