Look around you’ve got baskets…grab one that fits your taste! Which if it’s in YOUR home it’s your taste to begin with, right? Stack some blankets inside of the basket and place the blanket you want seen in the image on top!
Most everyone has a decorative chair. If you don’t, I think a classic wooden chair still can’t be beat!
Most any bedroom has a bed right? Find the bedroom that has the most beautiful lighting in it. Face the baby towards the window and there you have a beautiful image!
Yes you read that right. You know all of these newborn wraps? Well it is basically a glorified scarf. Well I know there are sweet colors and cheesecloth wraps but…you get my point…you can run to your closet and pick up a solid scarf or a printed scarf (especially for those baby girls!) and there you have it! Wrap that baby up tight or swaddled and you have a beautiful wrapped baby…now place the baby on the chair…bed…in the basket…or with your blankets!
