I just stumbled across this lovely book-themed baby shower on MarthaStewart.com. As a lover of literature myself, I adore this idea. Check out the details...
And the best part is, dear Martha gives you the entire party plan. I know this is a dream come true for you timid party-planners! There's DIY instructions for the decorations, which include a mini-book garland and covered books. A nursery-rhyme menu is included, complete with recipes. My absolute favorite? Free printable invitations, bookplates, and bookmarks designed by my beloved Rifle Paper Co.
This would be a wonderful theme to adapt for a birthday party! It could also be a great option for a second baby when the usual essentials aren't needed but you still want a little party.
