Bedtime Book Baby Shower

bedtime-book-baby-showerLast year when my friend was adopting she didn’t really need a lot of stuff, but we were so excited that we wanted to celebrate anyway. So instead of throwing a full out shower, we decided to do a bedtime book baby shower. I was so excited! I got to combine all my favorite things: cookies, books, vintage items, and PJ’s!

On the invite we told everybody:
“Come in your PJ’s or comfy clothes, bring your pillow and favorite blanket, and we will settle in for cookies, milk, and a goodnight story! Bring your favorite children’s book as a gift.”

I then raided my mom’s amazing collection of vintage toys and books. Do you see that old turquoise car? That was my grandparents’ and I remember playing with it at their house when I was little. I also remember playing with the metal spinning top.

I let the guests write their names with a dry erase marker so that we could keep track of whose glass was whose. To keep the milk cold I made some milk ice cubes the night before. It kept things cold without watering down the milk.

After the goodies, we had fun sharing some of our favorite children books. It was a wonderful night and it was so easy to do.
