A focal wall painted a deep rich blue with a painting of a shooting star firing its way across the sky would be so unique and eye-catching! This is an opportunity to display a realistic picture of the universe that can't be seen with the naked eye. Bring a special baby moon, stars and some planets up close and personal into the nursery theme with some planet wallies! You won't need a telescope to begin baby's planetary education regarding the magic of nature at a very young age!

For a very celestial and airy feel there are some sheers that are embroidered with quarter baby moon and star motifs. There's no rule that says you have to hang these over your windows. You can also use them to make a dramatic canopy at the head of your baby's bed. You can get the same look by using a mosquito net canopy. You can get a glow in the dark canopy with stars that glow when the lights are turned out that are so cute! This reminds me of frothy clouds floating over the moon on a dreamy summer evening and the glow in the dark stars are just an added decorative bonus!

If celestial or universal education is not your decorative goal, then just hold on, there are loads of other ideas and baby gear to complete your baby moon nursery decor.

While it's always a good idea to balance the themed decorations in a room, that's not to say that you must repeat your motifs over and over. Think about it. The moon and stars exist in conjunction with all aspects of Mother Nature and all that she encompasses. You could have baby moon and stars applique baby quilts with a nursery rhyme mural or wallpaper. There are some great wallies or wallpaper cut outs depicting the classic cow that jumped over the moon.

If you plan to use a night light or a monitor, why not get one that will be an asset to your themed bedroom! There are clever decorative baby gear items of this sort that project beautiful patterns of the moon and stars onto the nursery walls and ceiling! This is basically an all in one rotating sun moon star lamp! The gadget plays music that can be a background for your lullabyes and baby songs. There are also monitors that make nature sounds which are perfect for getting baby to sleep. If you want something more permanent, an antique art deco style moon and stars wall lamp would be very pretty and in keeping with the room theme.

The Mickey and Minnie Mouse Nursery theme has primary colored stars on the nursery walls and as hardware on the nursery furniture. There are also some Teddy Bear baby bedding sets that have a moon and star background that you might want to consider!

There's no need to grab the first pattern you see, even if it's really cool! Wait until you have several choices and THEN see which you prefer. Another thing, changing and updating this theme to keep it current and fresh is a piece of cake! Whether you choose to have a focal rocket ship or a cow jumping over your baby moon, have fun and make it unique.
