Baby Bedding A La Cart

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

For over 20 years, we have been designing baby bedding collections that are bundled together and presented as a package. For instance, we offer 4 piece crib bedding sets, 3 piece cradle bedding sets, 3 piece portable crib bedding sets and 4 piece toddler bedding sets.

What makes us different from typical baby bedding resellers is that we also offer any of our crib bedding pieces A la cart. We are the factory, after all, and that comes with many advantages!

For those looking to accommodate friends and family operating on a tighter budget, the babybedding.com baby gift registry is a perfect way indicate your preferences and allow others buy baby gifts as separate items rather than as an entire collection. Our high quality crib sheets start at just $18 and they can easily be coordinated with any nursery design. And coordinating crib skirts start at a low $37.00.

If you are on a tight budget or just want to be conscientious about the budgets of your loved ones, consider using the gift registry to manage your nursery decorating needs. With many crib bedding and nursery decor products under $40, everyone will be able to share the joy of giving without busting their budget.

Window Valances Bring Together a Nursery

Monday, January 26th, 2009

I’ll have to admit that when my wife was expecting and we were signing up for a baby gift registry, I didn’t even know what a valance was.  Of course, there were many things I didn’t know, but I remember asking, “what is a window valance and why do we need one?”

Like a crib skirt, the primary purpose of a valance is to hide unsightly hardware.  But valances can also bring together a theme and put the finishing touches on a nursery.  Valances can be used with or without curtains, but they are typically paired with curtains for a more formal appearance.

Valances are also considered window treatments and come several styles.  At babybedding.com, we offer two of the most time-honored and versatile styles: balloon valances and tab top valances.

The balloon valance (also known as rod pocket valance) typically envelopes the curtain rod and gathers, or ballons, along the width of the window.

A tab top valance hangs on the curtain rod via a series of loops and leaves parts of the curtain rod exposed.

Whether you are looking to add a splash of color to your nursery or want to add the finishing touch to a coordinating design, window valances are a great way to bring together your nursery.
