Opinions Please!!

Ok, so I know I have posted on here a bazillion times about nursery bedding and decor, and I am sure its beyond tiresome at this point to hear, but I need some opinions.

So if you have been reading the blog for the past couple months, you know I have been REALLY picky.  I really wanted to use bold blue/teal and green with some brown, but I could never find bedding I liked.  I wanted to avoid cheesy characters and just go with something simple.  Still no luck.  So I made the decision to just order/register for individual pieces that I like and sort of build my own bedding.

Well, today, I went onto BRU to update some items on our registry and see this new bedding set, and I can't help it, I think it is so cute!  I'm not planning to use the quilt, but I really like the sheet/bumper/crib skirt combo, and the fact that I can turn the quilt into a cute playset.  So I need to know what everyone thinks, since this is going almost 100% away from my original plan.  Is it too dorky for my boys or is a safari-type theme OK?


  1. I like it! I understand wanting simplicity. I am the same way. I love the bold colors etc. in this set though!

  2. I like the safari theme, it's cute. I totally am looking for the same simply things for my triplets...I hate all the characters and cheesy bedding and love the pottery barn stuff but refuse to pay an arm and a leg for baby bedding, (especially times 3)! What you have going is a good idea! :)

  3. I have a safari theme for the girls! Gender neutral that we decided on before we knew if they were girls, boys, or one of each. I am glad we went with it. I didn't do a bedding set but my MIL painted a mural so we did everything "plain". Just sage sheets, white dust ruffle and that type of thing.

    I promise I m going to the post office soon!

  4. I do think it's perfect for two sweet little boys, or even girls if you go that route in the future!! I think it's perfect that the quilt (which babies never use) turns into the play mat. My SIL has a jungle/safari theme and it actually makes it really fun to buy gifts for her. Also, it will make for a great craft one day with your boys: Take them to a day at the zoo, take close up pics of the lions and tigers, then blow them up, frame them, and hang them in their room! They will always remember the day at the zoo with you!!
