A Literary Baby Shower Party

For writers or book lovers, a literary party makes a welcome theme.

The Theme

Celebrate the pleasures of reading and writing -- for baby and grown-ups alike.

  • Go for a literary decorating theme. Ask you local bookstore for old posters promoting recent titles and authors. Also, check the school supplies section of your local stationery store for other book- and writing-related wall art.
  • As arrivals sign the guest book, ask them to also list their favorite children's book.
  • Position books (adult- and child-oriented) around the room to add emphasis.
  • Do a reading. Pick a crowd pleaser, such as a humorous essay on the life of a mom.
  • Buy a blank journal and have guests record thoughts, advice and best wishes for the mom to be.
