Baby Love - Inspired By Food

I'm 18 weeks pregnant so naturally I think about food a lot :) But food has so many meanings, doesn't it? It's a source of comfort. It can bring back memories. It can mean tradition. It can mean decadence or it can also mean health. Regardless, food is personal.

A fun way to make your space personal is to bring in a favorite candy in a dish in the kitchen or entry, but you can also add a piece of art inspired by food to your living room, dining room, or kitchen. Remember I showed you how I added that pretzel and beer print I had gotten my husband to our living room. It's a great spot for it.

Feast your eyes on some more ideas...


A child's room is also a fun spot to bring in a piece of art inspired by food - maybe their favorite snack or treat. The popsicles are really fun too - reminds me of summer.

I have to tell you that this all started because I came across the Janet Hill art print at the top middle called "The Chocolate One with Sprinkles" - just say it to yourself. Doesn't  it make you want a nice fresh donut? I'm not a big donut person by any means but the donuts in that print were talking to me.

Yum.

  1. Gosh, Holly I can't believe your 18 weeks already!! That is amazing! I hope you're feeling okay. By the sound of this post it would seem morning sickness is not an issue which is great! Very cute pics....my son would love the donut print in his room!! Whenever we read 'Meatballs with a chance of cloudy', he always says he is starving....I can't imagine what a donut print above his bed would do!! :)

  2. I can't either Fran - it goes way too fast the second time around. But feeling good - I love that donut print!

  3. That donut print is really gorgeous - I am a fan of Janet Hill in general. I also really like the pear print -- so simple and pretty.

  4. I'm still loving that beer & Pretzel print! My husband would love something like that in his office. Thanks for sharing some more inspiration Holly! I hope you are feeling well.

  5. I need a donut followed by fries! I'd love a piece of art for my kitchen to give it a more modern vibe. Last summer in Laguna I saw a piece of cherry pie I loved, sadly WAY out of my budget...still on the hunt.

  6. Your beer and pretzel print is still my favorite but the doughnuts are beautiful too! Maybe if I had hung pictures of food up when I was pregnant I wouldn't have actually eaten so much of the real thing. :) Also love the little french fries!
