Children's book baby shower

Yes! There’s still a few more baby shower idea posts! The theme for the shower was Balloons, Books, and Baby and the major “entertainment” was left to the guests. It’s hard finding good baby shower games that don’t involve diapers and melted chocolate, no? So, everyone was instructed to bring a children’s book to gift to Victoria and baby and Chronicle Books pitched in and supplied some of their gorgeous editions. Because we were working with some clever creatives (though I don’t think you have to necessarily have an interested in crafts to recreate the game) we asked everyone to bring the book wrapped like the book so we could play a game of “Guess That Book“, which turned out to be  a lot of fun. People BROUGHT it! We had to throw in some classics so we’d all stand a better chance. But now I’m going to leave it up to you to “Guess that book!” (answers after the jump).  Balloonbabyshower-14Balloonbabyshower-143

I LOVE Brynn’s fish wrapping. Kraft paper decorated around the book with scrapbook paper. So clever.
