Oh, this is going to be CUTE. Katie searched for some of the most adorable literary baby showers she could find, and these parties do not disappoint! Here are Katie’s Top 10, in no particular order…
#10 GOODNIGHT MOON
From Bump Smitten
Those are PILLOWS at the heads of the tables! And while there are no bowls of mush in sight, there ARE these adorable “Hush” cookies…
#9 THE PIGEON NEEDS A BATH
From Tonya Staab
The pigeon in the cotton ball bubble bath, the rubber duckie…and the DONUT TOPPERS on the milk bottles below!
#8 CURIOUS GEORGE
From Kojo Designs
The mural of pages! The yellow hats! The spotted ties around the glass treat jars! And this adorable sock monkey balloonist…
#7 IF YOU GIVE A DOG A DONUT
Technically, this shower wasn’t just If You Give A Dog A Donut. It featured several children’s books, as evidenced by their charming party menu:
#6 WINNIE THE POOH
From Hostess with the Mostess
I love the non-pastel colors, the big red balloon, the charming floral centerpieces, and the quotes on the plates!
#5 WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE
The botanicals add such a fabulous wild feel to this table, and the little cookie packets and copy of the book for guests to sign are way cool. Plus…a cake with a crown and wooden platter!
From 100 Layer Cake-let
I think the photo of mom as a little girl reading says it all! Also love the lanterns/hot air balloons and the mini clothespin garland with prints from the books!
#3 PETER RABBIT
From Hello Brielle!
Awwww! The baby clothes Peter Rabbit scarecrow! And HUGE props for making vegetables so incredibly celebratory!
#2 GOLDEN BOOKS
From Aesthetic Nest
This bold, fabulous color palette is utterly fantastic. Definitely the winner of “Best Use of Yellow and Blue!” Also, the time and effort that went into these cupcake toppers alone. I’m impressed (and they provide the printables for them on their blog)!
#1 THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR
From Leigh Anne Wilkes
Fruit kabobs are PERFECT for hungry caterpillars! But check this out…one of the shower gifts was customized book chapter onesies for monthly baby photos!
The shower featured a number of books and treats (don’t miss the mouse sugar cookies!) but we thought we would end with something that applies to ALL literary parties. SO going to use this somewhere:
