Cactus Themed Baby Room

When we were planning baby's nursery, we didn't know what we were expecting, so we went with a gender neutral theme, and cactus fit the bill perfectly. Green is a traditional color for surprise babies, and I love mint green, so it worked perfectly.

I made the garland- love how it turned out!! It is just felt and embroidery thread from Hobby Lobby.

The crib is such an important feature piece in a baby room. I love the crib we chose. I didn't want to spend a crazy amount of money, but I knew I wanted white, and I didn't want it to be the same height on both sides... that just looks like a baby jail you know?!
Crib: well under 200!

Mobile: Mine is HERE  more cute options below!

Sheets & Blanket:

I love this cactus blanket. It's the perfect size for cuddling with baby and for putting in a car seat. The mint green minky fabric is so soft, and I like the cactus side as well. The pom-pom finish is just the icing on the cake!

Or buy on Amazon if you're all about that prime!        

More (affordable) options:
Adding some cute throw pillows is a fun and cheap way to keep the theme! My sister-in-law and I reupholstered this chair into this grey beauty from a red velvet. I love how it turned out.

Back to the pillows... Look at all these amazingly cute cactus ones!! I'm so in love... now I need more...


I got some great cactus decor from amazon including this changing pad cover and hamper. I had great luck there more so than in stores. Cactus is becoming more popular, but I started this over a year ago.

Other Changing Pad Cover options:

The middle one matches the above blanket and sheet set!!

Hamper Options:

A gallery wall in your chosen theme is a must! (Although I wouldn't suggest one over a crib for obvious reasons.) Here are some fun cactus prints to look at below.

The toy box was an inexpensive DIY. I simply bought a crate like the one below and sanded and painted it. I googled some images of cacti to decorate it, and voila. 

Last but not least- a free printable for you! I made these great little posters in 2 color options. I love the quote - "Reach for the Stars- Stand on a Cactus if you Must" Its an awesome reminder that greatness doesn't come easily!
