I know I know, it seems silly to have an entire post dedicated to this topic, but I recently changed how I store Caroline’s bows and it’s made a huge difference! I got the idea from my good friend Kady (@thekadycam on Instagram) and it’s a million times better than having a bunch of bows just thrown into a basket (my previous method).
I’ve had this acrylic necklace stand for ages (made “famous” (lol) by a photo of my jewelry tray from my Home Tour on the Everygirl in 2014) and it was just taking up space on my night stand storing necklaces I never wear since I’m a stay-at-home mom living in super casual Hawaii. I brought it into Caroline’s room and now use it to display all the bows for the current season/holiday, as well as my favorites that are on heavy rotation. It’s so nice to be able to see all of them without digging through a basket to find the exact one I’m looking for. And when I’m in a rush I’ll just drop the used bows on a large shell that I use as a tray. Makes it look more tidy than if I just placed them on the bookshelf 🙂
As for all of the other bows, I simply hung some clear 3M cord clips on the back of her door (any type of hook would likely work, this is just the kind I had on hand) and used some wooden kebob skewers I had in a drawer in the kitchen. I grouped them loosely by color and season and it’s such a great (space saving) way to store the rest of her bows. The larger headband bows are still in the basket but they aren’t buried at the bottom of a bunch of little bows, which is nice.
Oh and I’m not sure if you noticed the print behind the bow holder but a sweet follower sent me the month of September from her 2017 Rifle Paper Co. calendar! It’s the month Caroline was born and I think it’s a sweet little addition to her room.

That Everyday Girl home tour is how I started following you all those year ago.
I love that Rifle hair bow; what a sweet touch! This is such a great idea, and I might do something similar for my daughter. She's 2, so not thrilled with keeping bows on, but maybe this would motivate her!
Aww I love that! Thank you so much for sticking with me all these years!!
Thanks Leslie! Caroline has 3 Rifle paper hair bows and they're some of my favorites. And I totally get it, I have a feeling it's going to be more and more difficult to keep bows on her as she gets older!
I need to figure out better organization for Emme's headbands because right now they're all just crammed in a basket. But I like the wider headbands for her so they take up a lot more space. I love the idea of the necklace holder though! Those are so easy to find at discount stores like TJ Maxx/Homegoods and Ross.
