Book baby shower

23 August 2011

I finally had a minute to read the May issue of Martha Living, and my favorite story was the pink and gray book-themed baby shower. I love books, I love the color pink, and I love beautifully-styled parties, so this one was pretty much a no-brainer for me.

Gorgeous illustrated invitations by Rifle Paper Co — AND they’re available to download on Martha’s site, too! I love that they included a book plate in the invitation.

A clever menu written on a stack of books.

Fun in food shapes and cute picks make everything tastier, right?

The hostesses suggested guests bring the gift of a favorite book from childhood, which I think is a lovely idea. In fact, I’ve been to a similar shower before (I wrote a little bit about it here), and it turned out wonderfully!
