Saturday was our baby shower. So much work went into it (especially the work of my bro's wife, Katie!), and it was a beautiful day. Katie planned a bookish shower! It was decorated with everything bookish, and with the invitations, guests received a book plate and were asked to bring a children's book to start baby Dominic's library! Mom works at an elementary school and there was a pile of old books that were missing pages and all torn and stained. She brought some of them home to cut out decorations.
I figure if there's anywhere to share a book baby shower, this is the place. So here are some pictures!
|A sign to welcome the guests!|
|A baby bookshelf for guests to leave their contributions! And everyone signed a copy of "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish".|
|Framed book covers.|
|More adorable decorations.|
|The little circles are cut-outs from children's books an elementary school was throwing away.|
|Beautiful flowers in an old jelly jar. In the water - magnet letters.|
|Food and drink had blocks for stands and labels from nursery rhymes. This one is "Little Bo Peep's Punch".|
|The round things are paper lanterns covered in round cut-out from children's books getting thrown away. I'm going to use them as a mobile over the crib.|
|Dominic... meet your parents. :)|
Lucky indeed! A beautiful day, and such supportive friends and family helping us get started as a trio!
