Re: Pottery Barn Kids...I wish

A friend of mine added a small registry at another store afterwards and put a little note in her BRU registry (where they let you add a note/comment) that they were also registered at such and such. Plus you can tell your mom and she can get a little word of mouth going when people call to RSVP. Guests sometimes ask for any gift suggestions in conversation.

Just a thought! Chat Icon

I didn't think it was tacky when she mentioned it to me and if I saw it on a registry that I was buying from, I would not think it was tacky. I thought it was a good idea and option should I have found something in another store.

Choose tactful wording as if your shower hostess wrote it...

Casey also has a small registry at PotteryBarnKids.com for baby's crib bedding. Short, sweet and simple.

That's not tacky, presumptuous or offensive at all.

There are some people, like a special Aunt or a group of cousins that may be hooked on getting you your bedding so they'll check it out! If I saw a note like that, I would.

I just added a note to my registry comment section stating that the shower is a surprise and something like if you are unable to attend and send a gift, please send c/o (my mom & address). The other day, I got a gift delivered from IL's friend. So I obviously know that invites are out. DH is Jewish and I know that 1. some Jewish people do not believe in baby showers and 2. they may not know it's a surprise. I'm not sure how my mom worded the invites but I just wanted to make sure no one sent a gift saying sorry I could not make it, we'll be in Paris the first week in June! I'm not a registry peeker and will not be opening any more boxes that get delivered here. I like surprises.

That's what the comment/note section is for! I say use it.

I know a few people who did that so they got the bedding they wanted. I don't think it's tacky.

Re: Pottery Barn Kids...I wish

Very cute set! Love monkeys!

You know another thing you can do if you did not flat out want to put the note of the registery... BRU has a section where you add in the nursery theme. So you can write, Pottery Barn Kids Monkey (whatever it's called). Make yourself a silent registry there and some people on their own will wander over there to see it and check if you have a registry.

There are ways to get the word out.

Love this bedding - my girlfriend, who used to work for PBK, has the monkey bedding on her son's crib. I think it looks great - I always love their color palettes and the monkeys are super cute. Have you seen the Monkey stroller blanket?

It's worth registering if you're considering buying anything there.

I register for things I want to buy all of the time. After the event (which is anything from a random holiday I pick to a birthday), they send you a discount on items on your registry.Chat Icon
