Book-Themed Baby Shower

From all your lovely comments on Martha's poppies, I can see that some of you are familiar with the Martha Stewart Living May issue, so sorry for this repetitiveness, but this baby shower is too cute not to share!
I really think this theme could be incorporated into any party, not just for a baby shower!






Book-Themed Invitations, with bookmark and bookplate.








Chic Lit Menues. Menu is listed on spines of paper-covered books.




Mother Goose-Themed Menu. 












Festive Drinks

Hello there sweet Shawna! Your posts are always so SOFT and the color is again, SO PERFECT! To find beautiful photos is one thing, but to be able to find them in THIS COLOR takes a lot of hunting and luck! I so love pictures with the aqua hue to them, and finding those photos is not easy. I LOVE THE BOOK THEM and Martha Stewart's ideas are still among my favorites. Thank you for coming over to let me know about your possible participation. If you can't no worry! Just enjoy perusing the other blogs and have fun!!!! Ahhh....I am trying to tackle ONE DUTY at a time at school; I finished the reading tests, and I have scored them. NOW THE HARD PART: contacting parents about them. That is what I do not enjoy for parents do worry. I am looking forward to free time this summer!!!HAVE A GREAT DAY DEAREST! Anita

This is so adorable, I totally agree it could be the theme of any party, at any age! I love the idea of using books as props... and the invites are very cute - if wasn't for the rats (I am scared of them even as illustration!) - but I love the concept!

Hugs & kisses from Rio!

About Last Weekend said...

Adorable! think my days of baby showers are over but have to find a way to use those wee sandwiches. So cute!

heather said...

how sweet this is! i was too late to say anything (didn't think of it in time, cuz i had just given birth...) but for my shower (post baby, cuz we moved here pretty late), i really wanted people to bring book presents. no time to register or anything like that. books would have been the perfect gifts!

Sarah said...

Wow I love it!
:) inspiration, I feel like cooking all day although it's only 8 in the morning here in Belgium ;).

Darling,
Knowing that you enjoy the lake makes me happy. I love water. When I get older, I want to live by a body of water. However, drowning is my biggest feat. Perhaps it is because I'm a bad swimmer. haha..Can you swim?
Have a lovely day!



LOVE!
