So, I would like to get a cute crib set...fancy light....pretty every thing, but would it be better to go with more practicle items for the baby;s room?

Like for instance, a Breathable Bumper rather than a decorative one?

Zip sheets verses fancy ones?

Ceiling fan rather than fancy light?

I'm sure theres other things I cant think of right now.

I am sure I should have chosen practical, but I went with mostly fancy. I am more into elegant baby vs. cute. So I bought a nice bedding set and the accessories. The one thing I left out was the ADORABLE canopy. I opted for wall letters above the bed instead, because I figured she'd be pulling on the canopy once she was old enough. Broke my heart, lol. I chose plastic letters cut outof lucite, cheaper than wood and I saved about $40. I attached my own ribbon instead of paying a couple bucks more a letter, too. I also went with a ceiling fan, but I chose the one that matched the bedding so it was still decorative but more practical. It is reversable, too, so later it can be switched. The rest of the nursery prob makes no since to other moms... makes for a beautiful room but not too practical... I bought a little trash can for 20 bucks (gad), adorable but not sure of the purpose since I have a diaper genie, and it has no lid so she'll prob spill it when crawling, etc. My diaper bag was $350 and dry clean only, but I'm really picky about purses, etc. so even though I knew I needed something more "wipeable" I wasn't about to get pooh, etc. One day I'll have to live with Dora and Pooh but not yet! My main prob is that I want the nursery to match the flow and decor of the rest of the house. I did find an ebb and flow, though... I bought regular sheets for my extra sheets, a less expensive changing table (that matches the reg furniture) since it wouldn't get used as long, things like that. I think the main splurge was the crib and dresser, but the crib is a 4-in-1 and the dresser is juevenile/teen instead of infant. Both items cost more, but we will not have to buy replacements later. So my opinion is that you can mix and match and have nice things to keep it refined to match your taste, yet also mix in some more practical options here and there. Good luck decorating with however you choose!!!
