I had the privilege of throwing a baby shower with some of my best friends for of our dearest friends. After hours of browsing Pinterest I was determined to throw her a Build-a-Library shower! How unique and how precious?
First, as any party planner does, we started with FOOD! I stumbled upon really great food ideas from Pinterest so we picked our favorites and made them our own! The menu consisted of
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish--Rainbow Goldfish
"Goodnight Moon-Moon Pies"
"Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs-BBQ Meatballs"
"Pinkalicious Pink Lemonade"
Green Deviled Eggs & Ham Sandwiches
"If you give a Mouse a Cookie-Chocolate Chip Cookies & Oreos"
The party favor was gummy worms in a small bag. The tag reads "Thank you for coming, celebrating, and bringing a book to confirm that little Ansley will truly become a precious bookworm."
Pinterest is always the saving grace for shower activities so I found the "Create an ABC Book" game. This gave the group an opportunity to "rehabilitate" their creativity and draw pictures that coordinate with the alphabet letter. . This was truly a very special baby shower full of love and literacy! Little miss Ansley will enter the world with 85 children's books that she will hopefully one day read to her children.
