When I found out my sister was pregnant I knew that I would be planning a baby shower. The pressure was on. A million ideas danced around in my head. I had to pick a theme and then get down to creating. Fortunately, I had a lot of help from my 2 sister-in-laws. I knew that books had a significant place in our hearts, so why not make it a party to build this little boys library! We tried to incorporate classic children’s books into every aspect of the party; invitations, decorating and food. Here are a few things that we included in our library themed baby shower.
The next step was decorating. I cut apart second hand books and sewed bunting which I hung throughout the living and dining room. I was able to use the second hand books through out the shower. The pages became the background for any note cards we used.
The take home gift for each guest was a bag with gummy worms..book worms (sorry, didn’t get a photo of that one). And, we made a bookmark for each guest. I just fell in love with the quotation “Children are made readers on the laps of their parents” by Emilie Buckwald.
