ARI’S ROOM MAKEOVER – JUNGLE THEME

Whether its a birthday party or room make over, I find so much joy in creating magic for my minis.  Carefully selecting each product with love, placing it in its spot and watching their eyes light up when they see their completed spaces.  I am also passionate about the brands and small businesses that I work with, and am so grateful to captures these memories through photography with my friend, and photographer, Nicola Holland Photography.

When I put Ari’s room together I knew that I wanted it to be practical yet stylish.  Little and big boy at the same time.  It needed to be  budget friendly and also moveable as we will be relocating within the year.

My heart was so happy to hear Ari’s screams and squeals of delight as each package of goods arrived.  Un like with Chloe’s room where I set it up by myself, I allowed Ari to work on this with me on our ‘special project.’  He was involved in every decision from idea to placement, and this gave him a huge amount of pride in his new bedroom.

Check out some inspiration for a Jungle themed bedrooms on my Pinterest.  As well as a sweet little video of Ari’s room reveal on my YouTube.

Lastly I want to say a huge thank you to Nicola Holland Photography once again for always giving it her all, even when I present her with an extremely poorly lit bedroom with zero natural light!  The images below turned out better then I could have ever dreamed.

Enjoy!
