This past weekend, I threw a baby shower for one of my good friends. My co-
conspirator planner and I had such a great time planning the shower, both because the shower was a (successful!) surprise (mom-to-be thought it was a later weekend and a much smaller affair), and because we came up with the perfect theme: both mama and papa love to read – no surprise considering she’s a journalist and he’s an author – so what better than to have a children’s books themed baby shower?!?
Each guest brought their favorite children’s book to help begin the baby’s library, and all the food was (surprise!) based on a book. Here’s the table spread (oh, and since the nursery colors are pink and green, you’ll see a lot of those colors, too):
And a few close ups.
Thanks to the mom and dad-to-be for letting me be a part of this special day….and to all the friends and family who helped pull off the event and the surprise!
