Baby Book Baby Shower

Book Baby Shower Cake and Cookies

A Book for Emma, A Book for Children’s Garden. This was my favorite baby book baby shower. Actually, I’ve used it several times and it is always a hit with the expectant mother and the guests.

Most of my friends are blessed with an abundance of friends and resources to meet their baby’s needs.

So I ask each guest to select their favorite children’s book and purchase two copies. One is given to the expectant mother and one is given to a children’s charity. I ask the mother for her favorite charity and tailor the book baby shower invitations to fit the sex of the baby-to-be and the charity’s identity. We’ve helped local children’s hospitals, low-income day care centers, children of abuse and even local law enforcement departments.

Decorations are simple. The tables are filled with some of my “vintage” childhood books and some fresh flowers or balloons.

If the guests at the baby shower are the type that like to play games, we do a round of Mother Goose Charades. I make up slips with nursery rhymes and each team must act them out. It’s lots of fun and helps the mother-to-be get up to date on her nursery rhymes. I also give her a Mother Goose book as a baby shower favor.

I usually do a book cake and book-shaped cookies with classic titles for guests to take home as favors. We fill a box with the donated books and if the mother and daddy-to be like, they can deliver them to the charity of choice. Or, I will deliver them on their behalf.

It is a meaningful, wonderful baby book baby shower filled with gifts that continue to give long after newborn clothes are outgrown.

From the start children are very likely to listen good story books, usually mothers starts reading books during their pragnancy. There is an activity which works for baby showers as well as for the charity, they arrange a function in which they invite mothers and ask them to purchase book for their chidren's charity. It is a very noble deed. they also arrange different types of activities for their guests and make book shaped cakes or cookies.
