I think purple and green will be cute! I have no ideas though. I'm not creative at all! Just wanted to say good luck! Lol.

I did a green & brown monkey/jungle theme before I knew what we were having...it's gender neutral.

Maybe dragonflies & butterflies...or a princess & a knight...those would probably work with purples and greens. IDK, when I was looking for ideas I browsed some of the bedding sites. Good luck!

I saw the cutest idea today that I am thinking of doing when we switch to toddler beds. Owls....They were really whimsical and SUPER cute...you could do pink and purple and maybe green and brown...it also had trees...like a forest and then big cute owls!

Bethann - I LOVE the owls but DH says they are too girly.

TGD - I had planned on doing monkeys for boys...they do have girl monkey stuff that I really like too tho....

Egray - Thank you! She will actually go by Finley!

I think I may have found something I like! I found it at Babies R Us and it has elephants! I had seen it before I even know I was pregnant and liked it but forgot all about it...I ran across it again last night. The girl on is pink and brown and the boy is green and brown. At the moment I think I will go with it unless something else catches my eye. I had really wanted to make it myself but I think I need to go for whats easiest right now!

Owls are sooo cute! And they don't have to be girly at all! Google them on pottery barn and what is that crafty sight where people sell their stuff at really outrageous prices?!?! Anyway, Owls can be really gender neutral!

We did pink and brown and green and brown for when they were just babies

Robyn - I found an owl set on Etsy that I LOVE but I refuse to pay $600 per set! I was hoping I could find fabric and do it myself but I've had no luck!

I love the Owl themes. I was thinking about doing Gillian and Finley's "big girl room" in Owls. Target had some cute stuff but its mostly girly. I agree though, they have tons that are gender neutral.

Etsy can be so expensive, but keep looking on there, sometimes you can find stuff at awesome prices! Or like you said, make it yourself!

Etsy!!! That's the website that charges an arm and a leg for something that you could make for the fraction of the price! lol

I HATE pink, LOL! So we went with Purple for our girl. We did do Blue for our son (twin), however we did green for DS1. We went with a Sea theme for DS1 that happens to incorporate all 3 of those colors, so we lucked out. The ocean floor is green, the ocean is blue and the octopus is purple :) When we had a nursery it was painted blue on bottom and green on top and then we had the octopus wall paper across the middle :)

I love all the ideas. I think you could easily do a jungle theme in a general/whimsical pattern can be super cute. LOVE the names. Come by the tent soon!
