I hosted a baby shower for my brother and sister-in-law a few weeks ago. I loved every minute of planning, decorating, and hosting. It was such a blessing to get to shower them with love and share in the excitement as they await the arrival of Mikey and Ellie.
Since they are having a boy and a girl I decided it would be fun to do a book themed baby shower.
Savannah's Memories, a cute little etsy shop, made the invitations for me. I loved how they turned out. She also made a diaper raffle card to mail out with the invitations.
I kept the decoration simple and made most of them myself. I did buy the confetti used on the tables and the book banner from etsy shops.
I made the fans from old children's books.
I ordered a personalized book from I See Me for a guest book.
I was able to get LOTS of books at a local consignment shop. Seth and Melissa got to take home all the books so that Mikey and Ellie can have a full library.
We served lunch to everyone. The menu was based on different books.
They had a great turn out. Lots of family and friends came to celebrate with them.
This is my cousin's little boy. I was so impressed by his reading skills. He loved all the books.
Lots of sweet baby gifts and a few things for the parents to be as well.
After they finished opening presents I read a little story to my sweet niece and nephew. I wanted to read the book that everyone signed and share just how much we all love Mikey and Ellie.
I hope Melissa & Seth felt just how much we all love them too.
I cannot wait to meet those precious babies and watch Melissa and Seth tackle this next adventure in their lives.
