Meri Meri

I’m in the middle of planning two birthday parties. One for my son and another for a client. I make it my mission to find at least a few pieces that I can’t easily find at my nearest Party City. Something that, I hope, people will think is so cute they’ll ask where you found it. Things like out of the ordinary plates, even if they’re still disposable. Or thoughtfully designed napkins with sweet details.

While searching on the web I found Meri Meri, a festive site dedicated to stationary, party supplies, baking products and the like. A must check if you’re looking to celebrate with something a little extra special.


Happy Wednesday!

Squooshi Reusable Food Pouches

I discovered Squooshi food pouches while in Vegas for ABC Kids. I thought they were pretty ingenious & will appeal to a LOT of you moms!

Squooshi is a reusable food pouch. They are adorable and refillable squeeze pouches that give you the freedom to give your babies and kids healthy food in a fun container they’ll love to use. With a sturdy zip-lock style seal located on the bottom of the pouch and a choke-proof cap, Squooshi reusable food pouches can be filled with whatever squishy wholesome goodness you and your little ones desire for a healthy, on-the go snack or meal…(applesauce, smoothies, fruit, grain and veggie purees, homemade baby food, yogurts, oatmeal – pretty much ANYTHING of a squishy consistency.) Check out this video for a 3D view of how Squooshi works:

Favorite Cribs from The MDB Family


During my trip to the ABC Kids Expo I visited with the MDB Family team. Their brands include Babyletto, Nursery Works, Million Dollar Baby, Franklin & Ben, Ubabub, and Davinci Baby.

There are some AMAZING new cribs making their debut this fall, and there are also new twists on some older favorites. See 10 of my personal favorites at the show below:


1. Gradient Crib The oval form of the Gradient crib is created by machining a fluid surface out of solid Maple hardwood. A 3D skin generates the slats which form an asymmetrical organic surface that explores continuous movement with no visual end. Without compromising the nature of the form, the crib converts into a bassinet. Made in the US.


2. Highlight Crib With the ease of a flip the Highlight crib seamlessly transforms into an adult-sized desk. The end panels wrap around to form the desk top, creating a durable work surface for years to come. The mattress support in Fluoro Yellow converts to a vibrant colored desk shelf. Each piece is hand made in Los Angeles and crafted from 100 percent American white oak. A nontoxic VOC-free, natural oil and wax-based finish preserves the oak to further prolong the design versatility of the Highlight. Made in the US.


3. Above you see both the Nifty Timber Crib in Walnut & the Pod Crib. Both are favorites by Ubabub & both convert easily to toddler beds.

Nifty Timber Inspired by the clean lines and streamlined shapes of mid-century design, the Nifty Timber Crib brings the 50’s aesthetic to the nursery, together with contemporary design features. It’s easy to assemble, clean and maintain, and features two adjustable mattress positions.

Pod Pod is a cosy cocoon-shaped crib with smooth, rounded edges for a distinct modern look. Innovative clear acrylic sides with star-shaped cut-outs allow for an unimpeded view of bubs for parents, making checking on baby simple. Plus, it’s simple to assemble, clean and maintain. As your baby gets older, Pod converts easily to a toddler bed.


4. I fell in love with the brand new Amelia by Franklin & Ben. The wood has a beautiful distressed finish- a must see in person!


5. This is a brand new crib debuting from Babyletto. I love the built in storage and pop of color!


6. Halo Crib A 24 karat gold square base elevates the floating frame of the Halo crib. The satin sheen of the gold boldly contrasts the richness of the American sourced solid black walnut. Each piece is bench-made in a small batch production using hand-selected wood in Los Angeles. Inset end panels are constructed from walnut plywood to preserve the interior structure of the crib. One step removal of the front panel converts crib to toddler bed. Made in the US.


7. This is a new one from Babyletto’s Gelato Collection. The crib feet can be switched out for yellow, mint, and cream! I love the natural wood.


8. Jenny Lind 3-in-1 A favorite nursery staple, DaVinci’s timeless Jenny Lind 3-in-1 Crib is now available in limited edition finishes (including Lagoon, Sunshine, & Grey). Attributing a pop of color to a familiar classic, the new finishes brings a fun and creative aura to any nursery. With its signature intricate spindle posts, stationary sides, and optional wheels, the Jenny Lind is constructed with the newest and most stringent safety standards in mind. Growing with your family, this classic is here to stay with an included toddler rail to convert from a crib to a toddler bed and to a daybed.


9. The Lolly 3-in-1 Crib is a favorite by Babyletto. This year it will now be offered in Grey/Natural as well as the original White/Natural.


10. The absolutely beautiful modern take on the vintage 50s Metal crib! I LOVE this one. It is called Winston by Franklin & Ben. Not available yet, but keep an eye out at
