Everything You Need For Your Book-Themed Baby Shower

I haven’t had too many baby shower invites and I had one thrown for me over 8 years ago so I don’t have much experience with them. I’ve heard that the games are not that fun, but there are a million different themes for the party and that can set the tone for the whole day.

I have been checking out different baby shower ideas over the past few months and some themes are pretty common. I like unusual, unique things that stand out and that’s where a book-theme comes in. Forgo the typical baby gifts and ask your guests to bring a book for the child’s library. Decorate with all the classical kid books from banners to cake and even the classic baby shower gift, the diaper cake.

Here’s some more ideas:
