Melisa’s Baby Shower photos

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

I threw a baby shower for my friend Melisa whose baby is due around Maddie’s first birthday. My showers always have to have some sort of theme, of course. Melisa’s was children’s books. I had been to a shower where everyone brought their favorite children’s book in addition to regular gifts, and I thought that this was a fabulous idea. My co-host, Cindy, and I belong to the same book club as Melisa, so it fit perfectly. My friend Kara (also in the book club) made the awesome stack of books cake and I had Whimsical Cookies create the story book favors. Everything turned out so well!

How many of these children’s books can you name?

I cohosted a baby shower on Saturday that had a children’s book theme. My cohost and the mother-to-be are all in the same book club, so we felt that it was an appropriate theme! As part of the shower activities, I took 20 book covers and photoshopped out the titles. Can you name these children’s books? At least one person knew all but one book cover at the shower. I’ll post the answers in a few days. Click on the cover below to get to the quiz thumbnails, and click on each cover to see the larger photo.
