A Teacher's Baby Shower

I'll start by saying that this is not a teaching-related post and I'm sorry for that BUT the shower that was thrown for my little daughter was a teacher's dream!
I just have to do a photo dump and share :)
The theme: Children's Books!
I found inspiration here and there and then me and my planning team went to work.
(Yes. Yes I was a psycho who begged my friends to let me help with my own shower. I'm sure a lot of you control-freak types like me can understand!)

Starting with the invitation...can't handle the cuteness....

The venue... a DARLING book store in a darling part of town called "Broad Ripple"

The room and table decorations...
Chicka Boom, Madeline, and Corduroy...
and the book themed menu...I love the Corduroy Button adorned glasses!
De-Licious Cake Pops!

Then, we have the baby shower stations...

Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse suggested that my Lilly needed some accessories like the character Lilly....Headband making station!!
Side Note: Those flowers were hand made out of my old shirts!
Julius, Baby of The World...Onesies making station!

photobooth and piggy bank stations...
advice, wishes, and party favors...a bookmark and tea for cozy reading time!

So, it was pretty much the most epic shower ever. I loved it and my friends did such a great job! I did get to plan but I wasn't allowed to set up I still walked into quite a sight!
Well, I'm off to attempt to enjoy the last few days of summer before we go back to school!
