For the past few weeks, my life has been taken over by BABY SHOWER PLANNING for my darling sister. What a daunting task if there ever was one! Last week I was a little MIA from blogging and tweeting leading up to the big partay…and NOW IT’S ALL OVER. I somehow pulled it off and finally, at the most critical point on Saturday morning, I was able to rally some help. Will gets some major fiance points for doing a LOT of the cooking to help me while I decorated. He’s a regular Betty Crocker…but way hotter.
While I was planning, I was on Pinterest and blogs looking at some major baby shower eye candy and inspiration. I was sad that my sister isn’t all crazy bookish like I am so I couldn’t throw her the most bookish baby shower EVER but I WAS able to to incorporate my love for books in one way.
As part of the invitation, where it said where she was registered, I wrote – “Let’s help build baby’s library. In lieu of a card, please bring a book for baby with a note from you inside.” It was really great! Mostly everyone bought books instead of cards and there was such cute, thoughtful notes that people wrote inside the books. This is step 1 in my diabolical plan to be the crazy aunt who makes her niece obsessed with books
Anyways, here’s some inspiration for throwing a real book-themed baby shower for that bookworm in your life. Feel free to throw one of these for me when this day comes for me
