There is an ongoing trend of 30-something women starting their families after starting their careers, and friends and family members can plan a baby shower that is just as unique as these future families.
A Library themed baby shower is a perfect way for a new mom who has no need for ten more newborn onesies and 50 disposable, landfill clogging diapers to show her unique style. This is especially helpful if the new mom already has a child, and doesn’t need many of the first-time essentials.
How to Plan a Library Themed Baby Shower
Baby Shower Games
Here are some examples:
1. “I do not like them, Sam I Am.” from Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham.
2. Ask attendees, “Who is Kanga?” Answer: The mother of Roo from The Many Adventures of Winnie-The-Pooh, by A.A. Milne.
3. Ask the guests, “Who wrote about the adventures of Peter Rabbit?” Answer: Beatrix Potter.
Another game could be to have each participant list a character from one of their favorite children’s books that best reminds them of themselves. This is a fun way for newly introduced attendees to get to know one another.
The attendees could also try to guess what the expecting mom’s favorite children’s book was when she was a child, or list what children’s book character would most closely resemble the mom-to-be and/or dad-to-be.
Baby Shower Decorations
A journal that chronicles the baby shower with pictures from the event along with comments from the attendees will surely contribute to the uniqueness of the celebration, and will allow everyone to remember this library baby shower as the most unique baby celebration attended by all. Hopefully this will spawn other specialty Baby Shower ideas for the next in line with a bump.
