When I saw the Forever Blossoms Set at Thank You Baby, I completely fell in love. Thank You Baby was born in 2005 after author, Tracy George, moved back home after the birth of her daughter and their first children's book, Everyday Blessings, was published. Tracy told her mother, Nancy, about her dream for Thank You Baby and together they made her dream a reality. Nancy designed and produced all of the products for the initial launch of Thank You Baby and still works closely with their current design team. By the summer of 2008, retailer Shauna Mucklow had helped them expand to full lines of baby and youth bedding.
Thank You Baby sent us the entire Kathy Ireland Home By Thank You Baby Forever Blossoms Collection. The collection includes the 4 piece set, mobile, pillow with ruffles, canvas art, valance, lamp shade, changing pad cover, diaper stacker, and burp cloths.
The 4 piece set includes the bumper, quilt, crib sheet, and crib skirt. The sheet is made of 100% cotton and is mostly white with hints of green and pink. The crib skirt is the longest one that I've ever owned. The longer skirt looks so much more elegant.
The bumper is amazing. It is actually 4 separate pieces so that you can create the design that you like. One side is white with flowers and the other side is soft and pink. Having 4 pieces allows for a snug fit in the corners. If you have a convertible crib, you can even take one panel off and still be able to use the other 3 sides when you transition the crib into a toddler bed.
The bumper also unzips so that you can take the foam out and wash the cover. I am most excited about this feature. You never know when baby is going to spit up all over the bumper or take a diaper off as they get older(yes-my son did that).
I've never been more excited about a quilt in my life! I didn't even get the quilt to the set that I was using with Isabella because I never used it with Evan. Evan's was strictly for decoration only because it wasn't soft and we couldn't use it as a blanket.
This quilt is more like an over-sized blanket. It is incredibly soft and can be used in the crib or we can take it with us to use anywhere. As it gets colder, I will use this blanket all of the time. Since Isabella is so small and we don't want any loose items in her crib, we keep the quilt and pillow on our glider. The pillow adds more color to the room and keeps her safe since it is not in the bed with her.
She loves her mobile. It is easy to put together and looks great hanging from her crib. Simply wind it up and it turns around and around while playing a lullaby. If you need it to stop immediately, there is a switch to turn it off.
I don't have an official changing table. I put a changing pad on top of the dresser. The changing pad cover is made out of the exact same material as the fitted sheet for the crib. I haven't found 'the perfect lamp' yet, so I just put the lamp shade on top of her diaper cake. I hung these shelves up a few weeks ago and haven't decided what I'm going to put on them. I think I'll put picture frames and stuffed animals on there. For now, the canvas art looks great on them. When I find something to put on the shelves, I will hang the canvases up over the crib.
I keep the diaper stacker on the side of the crib. Before, I had the diapers and wipes laying on top of the dresser. The diaper stacker is super cute and makes her room looks less cluttered.
The burp cloths remind me of a pillow case with a soft side. They match her room perfectly and make for an adorable accessory.
Isbella's room looks amazing now. I am going to paint it, but haven't decided on what color. I think I'm going to go with the green since it is just an accent color in the bedding. The best part is that I can purchase the youth comforter for when Isabella switches over to a big girl bed and I won't have to completely redecorate her room.
