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!

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!
