As much as we love the creepy, crawly, scary side of Halloween, let’s face it, haunted houses and other seasonal celebrations can be more frightening than thrilling for our little ones (and maybe even the adults too!). This Halloween, we’re embracing the whimsical side of the holiday with a party full of bright hues and silly desserts.
Today marks the fourth annual Star Wars Reads Day™, where Jedis™ around the world pick up their favorite galactic story and celebrate the joy that is exploring a new world through books. This year, we’re thrilled to be marking the occasion with Brightly, a resource that helps parents turn their kids into lifelong, enthusiastic readers, by helping two lucky winners create a reading nook fit for readers of all levels.
October is here and we have one thing on our minds — Halloween costumes! As fun as picking out your own costume, you know what’s better? Deciding with your kiddos on how they’ll dress to celebrate this year. So when our friend Cassidy June, who created a beautiful room with PBTeen, told us she and some of her mama friends were going to complement their kids’ Pottery Barn Kids Halloween costumes with a homemade costume for the moms, we knew these would be looks we’d have to share. Not only are the pairings so creative, they’re simple enough to replicate at home! Today, Cassidy takes us through how she and her friends perfected each costume pairing.
A gender-neutral color palette in a nursery is a way to ensure the room grows with your child and their developing personality while also creating a comfy place for you, the adult, to hang out in during those precious early years. Hey, you matter too! With this in mind, we asked Caitlin Flemming, an interior designer and the blogger behind the gorgeous site, Sacramento Street, to help us create a peaceful nursery perfect for girl or boy. We’re excited to share her tips for designing a color- and gender-neutral nursery that encourages an adventure-filled childhood!
ICYMI, we’ve worked with the Star Wars™ crew on creating an amazing collection of decor and gear in homage to the space saga. We couldn’t create a world of Star Wars and just have a ho-hum wall complete the look. No, no, no! For the ultimate Star Wars bedroom, we teamed up with stylist, Maura Garrity, to create a wall mural inspired by Han Solo’s ship, the Millennium Falcon™.
We’ve got something BIG happening this #ForceFriday for your little Padawan™ (that’s a Jedi-in-training). To celebrate the coming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens™ and our own excitement in sharing the films with the next generation of Jedis™, we’re taking the Pottery Barn Kids Star Wars™ collection to the next level. There are new talking backpacks, Death Star™ beanbags, and sleeping bags that may never be put away, but the piece that’s spinning us into light speed? It’s our take on Han Solo™’s heroic ship — the Millennium Falcon™ BED!
The first few days of school are filled with mixed emotions. Excitement, anticipation, maybe a little tear is shed (by us moms!). A great way to make your little one feel extra special during their first days back in class is to add a little surprise to their lunch box!
A sweet note paired with a yummy lunch is a perfect way to put a smile on your little student’s face!
Cutting a sandwich in their favorite shapes will help even the pickiest of eaters enjoy a healthy lunch. (Don’t forget to write their name inside of their lunch bag incase it gets forgotten on the playground!)
Words of encouragement on their next big test will go a long way, especially when they’re complimented with a flavored bagel sandwich and sweet fig bars.
Have some fun with the theme of their lunch bag! This peanut butter and jelly sandwich was built into a castle, inspired by our Mackenzie Dragon lunch print.
