I can’t say that I’ve been doing much of it lately with all the last-minute tasks getting ready for the baby, but I love to read. So, I can’t express how thrilled I was with my Once Upon A Time/Storybook themed baby shower thrown by one of my best friends and my mom. We had the shower at my house since I kind of live in the middle of everyone and have a still fairly empty living room (with outdated and ugly wood trim/paneling).
Here is the blank version of the invitation which looks like an old library card. *Smiles*
Here is the entryway. There was a “Welcome” note listing all the details of the shower and some parting favors of chocolate chip cookies based on If You Give a Mouse a Cookie in the basket below.
We had pigs-in-a-blanket based on the Three Little Pigs.
All in all, the day was absolutely wonderful! Everyone was so generous! We received a lot of books and even some really old ones. My Nana gave me one of my Dad’s old childhood books and a family friend gave us two old Raggedy Ann and Andy books from the 1920s. Of course, those books will go on the top shelf for safe keeping…
I can’t express how much I loved my shower and can’t thank everyone enough who helped out and came to celebrate.
Here is me and the hubby after the shower was over. I swear one day I will paint all that dreadful wood trim and paneling – just need to convince the man standing next to me. Can I get an amen? Please?
