Book Themed Baby Shower

We are counting down to the final weeks when Melinda’s newest addition to the family makes his arrival. To celebrate, Melinda’s closest friends planned a wonderfully creative “book themed” baby shower for her. You may recall hearing about these friends in this post last year. Each of these moms have a set of twins and we were wondering what the odds were of three best friends each giving birth to twins. But it was not to be (much to Melinda’s relief!)

Because of Melinda’s love of books (and consequently her children’s love of books) they decided it was the perfect theme for the shower. A few weeks ago they sent out clever invitations that looked like a book cover on the front with an old fashioned library card pocket on the inside. The pocket card contained all the information about the shower.Book Themed Baby Shower InvitationMelinda’s friends dressed up as librarians and decorated the whole room as a children’s library.Melinda and friendsCan you guess…how many kisses are in the jar? Guesing Game

I am so thankful for great friends that love me so much! I LOVED the shower. It was exactly what I hoped it would be and truly represented what I love so much–BOOKS! I appreciate all the friends and family that came and gave to me and my little boy.
