A Book Baby Shower: My Favorite Theme Yet

By michellehorton |

My absolute favorite baby shower theme is the book baby shower. Perhaps because I’m a word nerd, a literary lover, a writer — or maybe it’s just because I chose a book baby shower for myself.

Think of all the possibilities for a book theme party: A menu filled with food from your favorite children’s books, a room decorated with hardcover books and even book-themed shower activities.

And instead of  a card, we asked our guests to bring a used (or new) children’s book — considering they cost almost the same. So now we have an incredible library of books for my son, all personalized with messages before he was even born.

When I saw this book-theme birthday party over at Amelie’s House, I immediately envisioned it as the perfect baby shower:

Natasha Collins of Amelie’s House creatively thought out every aspect of the book party, from decorations to totally unique invitations. Click here for more pictures and book baby shower ideas.
