Children's Book Themed Baby Shower


My best-friend-in-the-whole-wide-world had her sweet baby boy 6 weeks ago yesterday!
A group of us ladies at our church threw her a baby shower about two and a half months ago, and I realized I never shared it!

Ashley (the mama) is a 2nd grade teacher and loves children's books.
She and her husband were also waiting to find out the sex of their baby until birth...
so a Children's Book theme baby shower was perfect!

As part of the shower, we requested books instead of cards with personal notes written in them for Baby and boy did Baby get spoiled!

(Now that Baby is born....I guess we don't have to call him Baby!)

Anyhoo... our showers at church are kept pretty simple.
 I still think it turned out adorable.
Here's some pics

Our "theme" books were
If You Give A Mouse A Cookie
One Fish, Two Fish
and 
Goodnight Moon

We used brown and primary colors.
We used disposable table cloths, and folded the colors to make runners for each book.

 The light snacks corresponded with the book titles

 And a dear friend and her sister made this gorgeous cake.
I hated to cut into it!
And I will tell you, it was just as delicious as it was adorable!
 The favors were pink and blue cupcakes! 
Yum!
 We had Star Crunches for Goodnight Moon.
(We wanted Moon Pies, but couldn't find em!)

Cookies for If You Give A Mouse A Cookie

And Swedish Fish for One Fish, Two Fish
 

Since we didn't know Baby was a "he"...we had the gift table divided with pink and blue and had people place their gifts on which table they thought Baby was!

And Mr. Emmett was spoiled rotten!
Our little church is incredibly generous!

So there it is!
Simple, on a budget, but adorable.
A great theme for a little boy or girl!
