I'm using this same fabric for my nursery, mixed with Amy Butler's Belle Chrysanthemum print in Mustard. Would you mind sharing the wall color you used for the room? The room we have is lavender right now and I'm having trouble deciding on a wall color to go with the fabric! Thanks!

I'm pretty sure this is my favorite room ever. Does anyone know where to find those letter blocks? They are so cute! I'd also love to know more about the alphabet poster above the dresser and the glider. Great job!!

I remember doing this way back in first grade when we talked about Thanksgiving. I haven't thought about it in ages! :)

If anyone is having a wedding in the St. Louis region I really recommend Russo's Catering. Their food and staff were excellent and the pricing was affordable. We went with a stations set up instead of a regular buffet at our wedding. My husband is vegetarian and I wanted there to be good veggie food but to also keep my picky family happy. Everything turned out so delicious and I know from our tasting event that they have even more great choices. Here was our menu:

Passed Appetizers
Spinach & Artichoke Mousse Pastry
Grilled Vegetable Pinwheels
Salami Horns piped w/cream cheese

Appetizer Display
Fruit & Specialty Cheese Display

Salad Selection
Garden Vegetable Salad w/Ranch or Balsamic Dressing & Asiago Lavosh

Carving Station
Herb Marinated Rotisserie Turkey: with Assorted rolls & Orange Cranberry Chutney

Hot Hors d'oeuvres
Prosciutto & Asiago Stuffed New Potatoes
Sesame Chicken Skewers w/Thai Peanut Sauce
Feta Cheese & Sundried Tomato in Phyllo

Chef Station
Cashew Chicken Stirfry
Moo Shu Vegetable Stir Fry
served over Jasmine rice with crispy wonton strips

I know it sounds like a weird mix but everybody loved being able to pick and choose and everything was super tasty! Our cake was hands down the most delicious thing I've eaten. We had a chocolate/white swirl with chocolate ganache and buttercream icing. I could have eaten the entire thing by myself. In fact we managed to eat a whole cake top between the two of us during the honeymoon. (They gave it to us as a gift for my husband's birthday, which was 3 days after the wedding!)

This is super cute! Wish I could get lucky finding a dresser like that too. :) I've added a few things to my wish list now, thanks!

I have been loving this bed when I see it in the catalog. I think it would be perfect for a girl's room! I'm a big fan of yellow though. :) Good to hear that it is holding up well. I'll keep it on my future wish list.

I'm excited to try some of the books mentioned by others for some new ideas! Thanks for this great thread! Ok, this is not as fancy as other people's choices but I've been cooking vegetarian for the last 5 years for my husband and I use this book all the time - "Betty Crocker's Vegetarian Cooking: Easy Meatless Main Dishes Your Family Will Love!" (1998 edition). I'm always looking for fast recipes that are yummy and use items that I have on hand so this book works great for me.
