Story Book Themed Baby Shower

We try to get together for a ‘girls’ weekend once a year with just my mom and sister and this year we also included my two aunts.  In June, they all came to Lancaster for a few days.  It’s raining babies over here on my side of the family, my brother had a baby this week and my sister is due in October.  While here we surprised my sister with a little story book themed baby shower.

She isn’t finding out the gender and the nursery is taking on a story book theme so that made it easy.  My mom also kept some of our childhood books that are still in good condition and were given to us as a gift so this made a perfect surprise as well.  Search Pinterest for Story Book Themed Baby Shower and you’ll be totally inspired.  We aren’t a fussy bunch and knew we wanted to keep in simple so here I asked everyone to bring a book and then based on the books my mom had kept, I picked a few that I knew I could make food ideas out of.

My go to book to give little ones is the Monster At The End Of This Book – it even comes as a board book!

My sister asked me to make a directional sign with fictional places from stories that both her and her husband love.  I surprised her by also making a bookshelf to go along with it!  I can give a lot more detail on how I did both but I think that will be another post!
