White Walls is an online community dedicated to helping military families make home wherever Uncle Sam sends them. Every Wednesday I will be introducing you to a military spouse and sharing his/her creativity and a little bit about them.

Today, we will meet Melissa who is the creator of Fawn Over Baby!

I have pretty often said I need to borrow small children so I can make cute craft projects and throw fun parties…but instead I am just going to move next door to Melissa of Fawn Over Baby! Melissa is the genius behind Fawn Over Baby – a website full of home decor, party and DIY ideas for moms and their little ones. When Melissa’s son turned one she threw him the cutest lumberjack themed party I have ever seen and now I need to be her neighbor so I can go to all of her parties!

Melissa is a military spouse and the latest installment in my White Walls Wednesday series – a feature that spotlights creative military members and spouses. I’m so excited for you to meet her!

“Hi! I am Melissa, wife to my loving and supportive husband Ryan & mom to our two precious kiddos, McKenzie & Haines. During nap time, I blog over at Fawn Over Baby ( sharing inspirational ideas on everything baby and child related (with a few DIY tutorials). My husband and I also opened up shop on Etsy ( offering hand-crafted natural wood baby/child toys that are non-toxic safe and designed to provide a charming accent piece to any space as well as endless amounts of play for baby without being overwhelming. I love finding creative ways to celebrate our littles and brightening the world around them and I hope they may spark the creative side to come out in others as well!”


The buffet table has so many sweet touches…from the personalized plaid blanket to the wood stump cake stands to the little lumberjack outfit hanging from the clothesline!

 I love the themed food and beverages...the little faux wood signs add the perfect touch!

 The rustic table setting makes me ridiculously happy. The stumps for chairs, the woodgrain silverware holders, the coordinating plaid napkins - perfection!
