We celebrated my sister-in-law and baby Raelynn with this colorful book themed baby shower. Carley loves to read, and this is their first baby so a book theme seemed perfect. The colors that Carley chose for the nursery are very fun and colorful, so we were able to incorporate those with the shower as well.

Fresh gerber daisy flowers were placed in jars on each table. We found gently used children's books at thrift stores to use as centerpieces. We used baby links as napkin rings, that were then gifted to the Mommy-to-be. The napkins and table runners were made with very fun fabrics. As prizes for the winners of each game we gave them each one of the Mommy-to-be's favorite books.
Each book was also wrapped with a colorful headband made of jersey knit fabric.We also used fun colored washi tape to create quick and easy straw flags that were labeled with each guest's name.As party favors for each guest as they left we made bookmarks with a reading quote by Jane Austen, along with a tea bag.
