Mikey & Ellie's Book Shower

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.
