Showered with love...

This past weekend, my mom and my sister threw me the most amazing baby shower. It was an owl and children's books theme, which was perfect since my husband and I are big readers and own a business selling rare books. I thought I would share some fun photos and inspirations in case you also want to throw a similar party.


There were books, pictures of books, and stuffed animals characters from books placed around the rooms.

All the foods had a children's book to go with them and a little fold-over card with the picture of the book. I will include them here in case anyone would like to use them in the future. There was "Green Eggs and Ham Quiche" made by my wonderful dad, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Cake", the "Vegetable Alphabet Book platter", "Humpty Dumpty Egg Salad" and Cookies brought by awesome mother-in-law, "Say Cheesecake!" made by a friend, Annelie, "Hop on Pop-corn" and "Owl and the Pussycat cupcakes" made by my extremely creative sister, and "Moose on the Loose Mousse", "Pinkalicious Punch", and "Blueberries for Sal Cake" made by my incredible mom. There was also "Peanuts", "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish Blue Fish Crackers", "Pretzel's Chocolate-covered Pretzels", "Chronicles of Narnia Turkish Delight", "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs", "Jellybeans" and so much more!










Favors...

Gifts for game winners...

Advice cards and pencils/pens for games...

Name tags...

And now for the most important part... the people! It was a very snowy day (who would have thought in mid-January in New England?? :) ), so unfortunately many people could not make it, but I was so blessed by those who were able to come even though the snow!



My mom and sister...


My sister-in-law... who came all the way from Virginia!



I received so many wonderful gifts! Our little girl already has a larger wardrobe than I do... and lots of books. I am so blessed to have such a tremendous family and loving friends!

Showered with a Whole Lotta Love,
Adrienne
