Baby Shower: Children's Book Theme

I've mentioned a time or two that my friend Mary is pregnant with her first child so I got to participate in her baby shower planning.  Her mother, aunt, sister and I got together to plan out what we wanted to do.  Since Mary is having a boy we wanted to make sure the theme wasn't girly but still wanted something cute and fun.  We decided on the children's book theme.

The Rainbow Fish and our food was non other than rainbow fish!

Mr. Potato Head was hanging around the potato chips.

Cookies for the attendees with the book, If you Give a Mouse a Cookie.

Our drink station, wine, water, and some fun blue pop.  You can't see it but there's a book on the window sill called, Mommy's Favorite Juice.  :)

Cheese & Fruit platter with the book, The Stinky Cheeseman.  

Somehow I missed the other portions of our food options.  Mac & Cheese which went along with The Stinky Cheeseman.  We also did the book, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and accompanied that with Buffalo Meatballs.  As well as pulled pork & pulled chicken with The Three Little Pigs.

Probably my favorite station was the rootbeer float station.  We paired this one with What Little Boys are Made Of.

They were perfect!

We had The Very Hungry Caterpillar along with some cute bite sized cupcakes.

Goodnight Moon was our goodbye and thanks for coming!  Who doesn't love a Moon Pie?

I made the diaper cake.  My first ever but I think it turned out well for my first.

Mary received a lot of great gifts from family and friends.

And for fun, we played one game.  The poopy diaper game.  This is the best.  You take 4 diapers and 4 candy bars.  Melt down the candy bars and spread each one into the diaper.  Your guests have to inspect, smell, etc until they can figure out which candy bar is in each diaper.  I love this picture!

We had such a good time.  Great food, drinks and fun and we set Mary up nicely for little Liam's arrival!



  1. I think this is such a creative and fun idea. You can never go wrongs with childrens books. :)
