Children’s Books Themed Baby Shower

My friends hosted my baby shower for Lily and it was so awesome. It was children’s book themed and they did a fantastic job carrying through the theme in every area. There were piles of old books as decor, dyed pages as a photo backdrop, candy in little books as party favors, and every dessert and piece of food followed the theme.

I am so lucky to have such wonderful friends and family that came to celebrate Lily’s life! Below are close-ups of all the food and the little framed book titles that went with them.

For activities, we had a relay race to change baby doll diapers (so fun, because apparently my husband is just naturally talented at changing diapers). There was also a guessing game of mommy or daddy (like did I or my husband have a favorite stuffed bear, or did I or husband love oatmeal). We also played the Price is Right with various baby items. Sitting on a table for people to fill out was also “Wishes for Baby” for people to fill out for baby.
