A Very Bookish Baby Shower

This past weekend, my good friend Leigh threw me and Emmy a baby shower! The weather ended up being awful, making the roads and driving conditions less than ideal, so unfortunately, several ladies weren't able to make it. But, we still had a wonderful time anyway! It was nice to get out of the house (a rare occurrence these days), and chat and catch up with my aunt and friends. It's also a very rare occurrence that we get to do so without our toddlers running around beside us!
When I walked into Leigh's house, I was blown away by the effort and detail she put into the shower. I was just expecting an afternoon of some snacks and girl talk, but Leigh went above and beyond that. Knowing how much I love to read, she went with a bookish theme for the shower, which was both perfect and funny since Sully's baby shower was also a book theme! My friends know me too well :)
Children's Book Themed Baby Shower Food
Even the food followed a book theme which I thought was so clever. We had:

  • Meatballs- Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
  • Quiche- Green Eggs and Ham
  • Caramel corn- Hop on Pop
  • Muffins- If You Give a Moose a Muffin
  • Cookies- If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
  • Veggies- The Tale of Peter Rabbit
  • Fruit skewers- The Hungry Caterpillar
  • Goldfish and blue whales candy- One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

For decor, there were children's books all over, as well as pictures of Emmy in frames. There was also a contest for guessing how many chocolates were in a jar (Alison guessed the exact number!), and gummy worms ("bookworms") for treat bags.
Emmy was spoiled with a ton of new clothing and some new books, along with some artwork for her nursery. It was all so thoughtful and I feel so lucky to have all these ladies in my life. They are my village here and most days I don't know what I would do without their love, support and friendships!

Thank you so much, Leigh, and thank you again to everyone who braved the roads to spend the afternoon celebrating Emmy.
