Pinterest Challenge - Little Gold Books Baby Shower

Over the weekend, my mom, sister and I threw a baby shower for my sister in law. We had such fun! There is nothing like creating together as a family. In search of inspiration for a shower theme, I turned to Pinterest and discovered a Little Golden Books shower created by Aesthetic Nest and posted on Pizzazzerie, I pinned it and knew I had my theme.

My brother, sister and I had a large collection of Little Golden Books which we loved, and conveniently, my mom had kept for the grandkids. We pulled the books out, used them for decor at the shower and had several conversations about which books were our favorites (Poky Little Puppy is my personal fav - in fact, that book was so worn out that mom bought a new one so she'd have it on hand for my niece and nephews.)

Using the printables provided by Anneliese on Aesthetic Nest we created a mini book garland for the gift table and made bags of freshly popped popcorn for favors.

To decorate the food table, and for my shower gift, I created a set of Little Golden Book onesies with the covers of some of our favorite books ironed on. I'm secretly hoping he'll grow up to be a book lover like me!

To feed our guests, I turned to another pin for inspiration, Veronica Yem's Waffle Bar. We kept three waffle irons going and enjoyed watching each of our guest testing out different topping combinations.

I'm struggling to remember party planning before pinterest!

Golden Books were some of my favorites, and my kids' too. What a great idea! This really is the best reason for being on Pinterest.

Whoa, it's been a long time between visits I see. (love the onesies). Though I haven't been doing much posting of late, I appreciate you stopping by and saying hello. How are you? I've been watching American Idol this season, are you watching? Some of the singers are very talented. Happy weekend to you. Take good care now.
