What is Black, White & Pink all over?

A book themed baby shower for a little girl of course!

There is a new baby in my life....And she is cute cute.

Meet Miss Vivi.  She is the first child of one of my lifelong friends.  But before she came...and she came early...her mama needed to be celebrated!  Her mom and our friend Jenny is a huge fan of books so Vivi's Auntie Lissa, Aunt Bertha and I pulled together our talents to throw a book themed party.  It was a no brainer.

For this party I worked with Candy at Your Monogram.  She was fantastic to work with and just happens to live in one of my favorite cities!  She took my ideas and created what I wanted and worked on edits!

The Invite:  It had to be pink and it had to be "story book"

Inside the invite envelope we included book plates.  Instead of cards we thought everyone could fill out a bookplate and put it in a book to build Miss Vivis library.
Then it was party time..Welcome wreath for the door, now on her door at home.  A book wreath of course.  Book pages make up the wreath and tiny little "books" spell out babies name.

Tables & Decorations

 This rocking chair belonged to Jennys great aunt, who Vivi got her name from.  Her Aunt Bertha recovered the cushions in pink minky!
 Spoil Me table...oh no problem!
Food:  We created a game and my co host took over!  I stuck to making the game cards and covering stacks of books in pink paper!

Name the book that goes with the food.
We also played a music game.  All the songs were "baby girl" songs and everyone had to guess the title and artist.  No pics. Boo.  Bad friend.
Words for the Wee Hours" a table for writing funnies on diapers for midnight changes.  

Guess how many jelly beans.  I like this game because it's easy!  And I really like coconut jelly beans.
The amazing and delicious cake from Edible Art in Raleigh.
Favors.  I forgot to print this our pretty so I had to write it.  Eeek.  Favors where cd's with all the baby girl songs from our game and a monogrammed book mark (no need for Etsy on this one, I made them!)

I made this new baby girl a bow holder and lots and lots of bows, but my favorite gift was this:
                                                       Vivian Tara: This is your story.
It was a great time and I'm so glad I had super party planners & executors to work with!!
