If the mom-to-be loves reading, she's sure to want to get started building her little one's library as soon as possible. Help her out by throwing a book-themed baby shower. Guests will nibble on children's book-themed finger foods, enjoy bookish decorations, and take home beautiful bookmarks to encourage their own literary adventures. Instead of presents, encourage guests to bring a new copy of their favorite childhood book. It's the perfect way to fill the new baby's bookshelves.
Do you remember the story of Blueberries for Sal? In this Robert McCloskey classic, little Sal goes out blueberry-picking with his mother, and adventure ensues. There's no better tribute to the book than a basket of delicious blueberry muffins. Your guests can also feast on other book-themed food tributes, from meatballs in honor of "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" to spinach and ham frittatas in honor of "Green Eggs and Ham."
These cupcakes are so classy that they are served in tea cups and can double as decor.
The perfect drink for a book-themed shower, the mocktail features coffee, cream, and syrup. Add a glug of cognac for the cocktail version.
