A lot of time, thought, and consideration most likely went into the process of picking out your child’s name. And as such, you probably are so proud of it that it makes sense that you would want to display it. So if you’re still considering décor options for your little one’s room, baby name signs for a nursery allow you to show off their name beautifully.
But where would you place said sign? Well, the options are endless, really. It can go
above Baby’s crib or bassinet, obviously, but it can also go over a fireplace, or even in a family room. If you have more than one child, you might want to group their names into a chic art installation in your home.
As for the signs, well, there are plenty of styles and materials to choose from. You might opt for a metal sign, a wooden one, or (swoon), shiplap. But no matter what you choose, the important thing is to celebrate baby’s beautiful name with a sign for their nursery.
