Isla’s Storybook Baby Shower

I have had some readers ask what Isla’s baby shower was like and since I started this blog after the fact, I never thought to do a post about it…until now!

My wonderful sister, also known as Isla’s Auntie Cali  and my mom put together this special day for us.

It was a beautiful but VERY HOT Sunday afternoon in June. I walked in to my mom and dad’s house and was greeted by an absolutely perfect Storybook themed baby shower complete with food, friends, family and of course a Nursery Rhyme Trivia Game!

Here are some pictures of that day!


The beginning of the snack table. Each snack corresponded with a storybook. Remember the “Peter Rabbit” story? There were plastic cups filled with ranch dressing and carrots and celery. There was also some delicious green eggs to go with the Dr. Seuss book.


My favourite Pigs in a Blanket for the storybook “Three Little Pigs”

Everyone was so thoughtful and generous towards Isla and myself. Instead of everyone bringing cards, they were asked to bring a book because I wanted to have a great collection for Isla. We always knew that we wanted to start reading to her right away so the guests came with books and everyone wrote a special message to her inside the cover. What a great idea and such a sweet way to remember the day. When Isla looks back at the books, she will know that she was so loved even before she was born.

I would love to hear about your baby shower themes! Comment below!
