April Showers

April showers bring … baby showers! Shower season is upon us. And whether you’re throwing a party for a friend or helping plan your own, we have a creative baby shower idea for you: a book-themed baby shower!

We got the idea from one of our new favorite bloggers, and party planner extraordinaire, Meleka of MMJ Events. She planned an entire party centered around everyone’s favorite children’s book classics.

“We knew that instead of a card, we wanted to have guests bring their favorite book as a child, she told the party-planning blog, Hostess with the Mostess. “When thinking about this, I decided to take it a step further and have the whole party be centered around children’s books. I spent some time at the library going through all the books I enjoyed as a child. Seeing the cover of a book I haven’t thought about in 20 years brought a big smile to my face. I checked out 20-plus books and went to work. The inspiration for the food and dessert table all came from details from these old school books.”

And just what do you gift the mommy-to-be at a book-themed baby shower? We have a recommendation: our new Book stroller!

It not only fits the party theme perfectly, but our Book stroller is the perfect choice for the new mom. Fully equipped with all the features, the Book is both stylish and smart. Retractable anchors on the seat create a travel system that allows our Primo Viaggio SIP 30-30 infant car seat to attach right to the stroller, which is just perfect for a new baby. And with multiple recline positions and a capacity up to 55 pounds, the Book is a stroller that Mom and baby will love for years to come.

If you do go with a book theme, here’s a little shower gift from us to you:  a book-themed party game! Download the printable file (and the answer key) here.
