Children’s Book themed Baby Shower

Baby showers are one of the funnest events to plan and decorate for. You can go so many ways with them: classy, modern, simple, cutsie, and my favorite: themed!

I have noticed lately, many are choosing to incorporate books into the party gifts by asking guests to bring a book for the baby’s library instead of a card. Cute idea!

This got me thinking: Why not make an entire book-themed baby shower! Looked on the internet for inspiration and stumbled across some awesome and ADORABLE ideas!


See, baby showers can be different than the typical pastel colored decor and baby food eating, candy bar diaper picking, word scramble kind of party 🙂 Have some fun, and just remember to keep everything in the theme!
