In late December I traveled to Mississippi for a baby shower. It was a shower for a first-born and the parents are avid readers so we did a library themed shower. We asked the guests to bring books so there would be plenty books to read to their new little bundle.
I created a guest book of sorts by taking the mother and fathers favorite childhood book to create 2 new books that each guest help write. There was also library cards for the guests to place in the book with a note to the new baby.
I used old book pages as a table runner and books from the parents childhood as decorations.
