A Bedtime Stories Baby Shower

I had the honor of throwing a dear friend a baby shower on Sunday afternoon, and thanks to a lot of help from her church friends, we had a lovely and stress-free time!

Thanks to Pinterest, I found a lot of inspiration for the Bedtime Stories theme. I didn’t want a super-girly theme or too much pink, even though my friend knows she’s having a girl. She requested something “not too girly” and I think we did a good job on that front. I just used a few pink accents in case anyone was wondering about the baby’s gender.

For decorations, the mom-to-be’s sister cut out clouds, moons, stars and books. We used twine and mini clothespins to hang the cutouts and created a mobile-like fixture above the dessert and juice table. I brought some of Future President’s books to use as decorations, too. We used white Christmas lights to decorate as well.

For food, I wanted to continue the theme of Bedtime Stories, so each food item was named for a children’s book or, in keeping with the bedtime theme, something along the lines of Naptime Delight Cake, Full-Moon bagels, etc.
