A Very Bookish Baby Room: Our Hobbit Nursery

Posted April 25, 2017 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Uncategorized / 7 Comments

I mentioned a few months back that I would post pictures of our book-themed baby room once we got it all set up. And now it’s FINALLY finished! It took ages, but we’re very pleased with the outcome. Three cheers for postpartum productivity! 😀

As you can see from the pictures, we’ve got a bit of a hobbit theme going on. We had a hobbit baby shower and asked guests to bring a favorite childhood book instead of a card, so it seemed perfect to style the Little Mister’s room after Middle Earth. Plus, we wanted something gender neutral, since we didn’t know if we’d be having a boy or a girl. I love how it turned out, and I’m toying with the idea of theme-ing our future children’s rooms after other favorite books (Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, etc.).

As you can also see from the pictures, there’s no crib. We’re co-sleeping, so the Little Mister currently sleeps in a Pack ‘n Play right next to our bed. As such, his “bedroom” acts more as a nursing and changing room, which we’ll gradually phase into a bedroom as he gets older.


But let’s take a look at some of these awesome accents!



This reversible doorknob sign says “Speak Friend and Enter” on one side and “You Shall Not Pass” on the other!


This was a gift from my mother-in-law. Perfect for a hobbit nursery! ^.^


What time is it? Meal time. Always. 😉


A few of the cards from our showers. This picture was taken before the baby was born, so there are lots more now!


This handmade LOTR mobile (compliments of my good friend Gina) is one of the Little Mister’s new favorite things. We just got a chance to put it up this past week, so it isn’t in any of the other pictures, but I snagged a shot of it just before this post went up. It looks great above the changing table! 🙂




And that’s our nursery!

What did you think? What book do you think would make a great nursery theme?

  1. This. Is. Absolutely. ADORABLE. 😀 It looks so cozy and comfy, and all the Middle-Earth and bookish touches are so sweet.

    I’m sure it’s too early to do this now for Little Mister, but are you planning to read to him as he gets a little older?

    • We try to read board books to him now sometimes, but you’re right, he’s a little too young to be interested. He’s got a growing library though, so as soon as he’s ready, he’s gonna get LOTS of bedtime stories!

  2. I adore the nursery! And the Fellowship mobile is the cutest!

    As much as I’d love a Harry Potter inspired nursery, I think I’d be more inclined to actually go the route of a Wind in the Willows inspired nursery. It would feel so peaceful for sure. Plus, I’m sure the kiddo would love a Mr. Toad, Mole, Badger, and Ratty!

    • That’s a great idea! It would definitely be super peaceful. There are so many great book-based ideas for kids’ rooms. I’m actually thinking of doing a different one for each of my kids (Hobbit, Narnia, Harry Potter, etc.). Plus, it’s really easy to make them gender neutral if you don’t know what you’ll be having. 🙂

      I’m actually thinking of doing a future post on ideas for book-themed kids’ birthday parties, since I already have LOADS of book party ideas for the Little Mister.
