I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before, or if it's just been a very long time for this to be on my "blog about one day" list, but I had a camping theme baby shower when I was pregnant with my baby, Dominic. I made a cute sign that says "Camp Dominic" and some other crafty items to go with the theme (I hope to post pictures up to share soon!). Anyway, here's the long story short - my husband is called "Raccoon" in Portuguese when he does Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, so we kind have always figured Dominic would be "Baby Raccoon." He has a number of raccoon-esque items in his room -- from a pillow to stuffed animals. His sheets & curtains are either gray chevron or gray stripes. Because it can't be all raccoon items, we have sort of gone with a woodland, "camp" theme, where we've incorporated bears, deer, foxes, and owls to the decor.
There are so many ways you can go with a camp theme, but here are my favorite items.
1: Paper Mache Mobile (Camp Theme) from Land of Nod; 2: Log Throw Pillow from Land of Nod; 3: Trend Lab's Northwood's Buffalo Check Lampshade via Target; 4: Fox Canvas Bin by 3 Sprouts via The Container Store (raccoon, bird and elephant version too); 5: Circo Ceramic Table Lamp & Shade - Owl via Target; 6: A Tee Pee to Call Your Own (Cargo) from Land of Nod; 7: Animal Pillow (Raccoon) via H&M; 8: Bear Shaped Rug from Pottery Barns Kids
P.S. The cute items I must add to this are the alphabet canvases that were made by family and friends who attended the baby shower. As part of the "Arts & Crafts" portion of "Camp Dominic" we had family and friends write a different letter of the alphabet to the canvas -- so we have the entire alphabet in different styles from block letters to cursive -- it is so cute! See below. Also - don't judge me for the letters "V" and "U" being switched around -- or the fact that our alphabet is also missing the letter "K" (somebody didn't realize the weren't supposed to pick whatever letter they wanted).
When the hubby is away fishing, wifey gets some home projects done! Finally hung the alphabet canvas from #TheDomJuan baby shower last December. And yes, there is a "G" instead of a "K" because someone didn't follow directions. #lacasaruiz
