The Best Baby Shower Gift Idea and A Special Giveaway!


Disclosure: Party Bluprints Inc. received a Gift Bag for attending. #VTechNursery.  All opinions are expressly our own.

Last week the Momtrends team invited me to attend a brunch at Ludlow Studio in Manhattan to learn about the new VTech Safe&Sound® VM344 Video Baby Monitor as part of a nursery design challenge. I love babies, interior design, and any chance to connect with fellow NYC bloggers, so of course I said yes.


I quickly learned that the VTech Safe&Sound® VM344 Video Baby Monitor employs fierce technology to bring parents peace of mind and keep babies safe.

  • Parents can watch as their toddler moves about with the VTech Safe&Sound® VM344 Video Baby Monitor with Pan & Tilt Camera.
  • The VM344 also features digital transmission, to reduce the risk of eavesdropping while cutting down on background noise.
  • Remote pan, tilt and zoom lets parents scan baby’s room right from the parent unit and – thanks to automatic night vision – allows users to see their little one without disruption, even after dark.
  • Parents also never have to worry about missing a single smile thanks to the camera’s full-color, high-resolution 4.3-inch LCD screen.
  • The VM344 expands up to four total cameras so parents can keep an eye on more than one child or room at the same time.

But it’s not all about the technology, the design is sleek and cool and the owl shape camera is adorable. I think it’s the perfect baby shower gift. I mean really, WHO wouldn’t love one?  You can head to your local Target to buy one or trying winning one here! We’re giving away one of the VTech Safe & Sound VM344 Video Baby Monitor with Pan & Tilt Camera to one lucky reader.

It was lovely. Beautifully set brunch tables, a delicious menu, and a festive mimosa bar were thoughtfully planned and ready for us upon our arrival – as was Nicole Feliciano (pictured below left), the founder and face of Momtrends. I tip my party hat to Sherri Schubert (pictured below right) at Momtrends, and appreciate all the time and attention she put into every detail of this event. Getting your guests in the right mood is so important, and Sherri is a pro at this – I love her style!

After we sipped on Cava, enjoyed salad in mason jars, and orzo and prosciutto, we were ready to start our challenge. The guests, all NYC influencers. were broken up into 3 teams and tasked with designing a nursery that any Mom would love for her new baby.  A crib, changing table and chair were provided along with several options for rugs, lighting, tables and other accessories.


Of course each nursery also featured the VTech Safe&Sound® VM344 Video Baby Monitor. The owl shape of the camera is so adorable that it’s a seamless addition to any baby nursery. 

It inspired my team (Team 2) to design a woodland creature themed nursery. We wanted it to be fun and functional design that was gender neutral yet full of color with pops of red and turquoise. We won the challenge and I’m proud to share photos of our design and those of Team 1 and Team 3 below.

We named our TEAM 2 design “Baby Oakley”

TEAM 1 designed a pretty in pink modern girl themed nursery.  I love the sweet nook they created with the pink ottoman and love pillow.
