Archive for October, 2008 Launches Baby Gift Registry

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

Just in time for Holiday shopping, we have launched the gift registry. Whether you are planning a shower, designing a nursery or just looking to navigate holiday shoppers to the baby bedding and nursery decor items that match your taste, the registry is perfect for creating the ultimate nursery buying guide that can be shared with friends and family.

Signing up for the registry is easy and saving items to your registry is even easier. After creating a registry account, adding items to your registry is as easy as clicking the “add to registry” icon beside any product. It’s that simple.

Save To Registry

Sharing your registry list is also simple. But for those wishing to restrict access, there are convenient options to control who can see (and purchase) your saved registry items.

The invitation-only registry is restricted to people with whom you have shared an access link to the registry. The private registry is only open to the registry account holder. A public registry, on the other hand, is the best option for allowing friends and family to find your registry profile via the registry search. Since it is public, people can visit your registry and make purchases without first having an invitation.

Try it out and tell us what you think!

Baby Nursery Design Tips: Heading Into a Season of Holidays

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

Doesn’t it seem like once October hits, the rest of the year flies by? I think part of the reason may be because those three months are filled with fun holidays. Once Halloween is over, it’s high-speed on to Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, New Years’, and other holidays. As the rest of the house makes a whirlwind of decorative changes, baby’s nursery often gets left out. But there are some options to make the nursery just as festive as the other rooms in the house.

1: Add holiday-inspired accessories to the nursery (like pillows, paper decorations such as white snowflakes, and framed photos)

2: The fall and winter holidays are characterized by warm light – add lamps, or other soft lighting to baby’s room. Securely-fastened stringed lights along the ceiling line create a festive vibe as well (and you might just decide to leave those lights in place after the holidays!)

3: Apply a neutral touch. There’s no color combination worse than baby blue or pink coupled with the holiday colors of orange, red, and green. When decorating your baby’s nursery, start neutral and it will be easy to add decorative touches when the holidays roll around. Otherwise, choose decorations that accent rather than clash with the nursery.

Happy Decorating!
