Storytime Baby Shower

This might just be the cutest new baby shower theme I have ever seen. Many of you already know Jennifer Eschbach who works at our store and is also the owner of Details Weddings and Events. Well, she and her husband are expecting their first child next month, a sweet baby boy! I recently attended a baby shower for Jennifer and I could definitely tell that she had her hand in the theme and decor. The baby shower theme was a "Storytime Shower" and guests were asked to bring a book for the new baby's library instead of a traditional baby shower card with their gift.

First of all, what a great idea! Second, the decor was so very creative! As you can see in the photos the tables were made up like children's beds, with a children's bed sheet as the table overlay and a matching pillow at the "head" of the bed along with a few plush friends and children's books.

The rest of the table was decorated with the lovely and scrumptious refreshments. We enjoyed gourmet tea sandwiches and cupcakes that looked almost too good to eat! Jennifer sent each guest home with their own individual wrapped hot tea for them to enjoy before their sleepy time! As you can see from the photos, it was a very sweet event. You could easily replicate many of these ideas for your next baby shower luncheon or brunch and needless to say Baby Boy Eschbach's library shelves are now full...Happy Reading Jen!
