A Library Baby Shower

January 10, 2012


“Puppies are Like That” is by far my favorite book from my childhood. A mischievous little pooch does everything from escape the yard to play in the mud and has his behavior dismissed with this sweet phrase. Of course this book was at the top of the list for the library shower hosted for a friend.

This special day welcoming baby (and exceptionally bad weather, including a power outage during the event) got him set for arrival and a library to enjoy for years to come. Guests were asked to bring a children’s book as well as a baby essential (diapers, wipes, etc.) Special notes written on library cards inserted into a special book were gathered for the new mom to “check out” when she needed some well-wishes and advice.

A yummy brunch was accompanied by fresh flowers, blue gingham decor and snapshots of the mom and dad-to-be as little ones themselves.
