Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Library Book Baby Shower

Mom-to-be Elizabeth has always loved children's books, so a library book theme was perfect for her baby shower. Her best friend April designed this lovely party for her, and she also created the flower arrangements with a mix of pink garden roses, pink anemones, ornamental kale, scabiosa, and mini persimmons. Juneberry Photo beautifully captured all of the details. Guests were asked to bring along their favorite book for mom and the little one on the way. Bookplates also accompanied the invitations so that guests could write a special note about why they chose this book. Guests had the opportunity to enjoy a lovely spread of food along with some delicious homemade lavender lemonade and peppermint iced tea. Yum! Each guest was also given an adorable bookmark to take home with them. See more from this pretty shower in the full gallery.
