Book Worm Baby Shower

One of my best friends Joleen is expecting her first baby this fall, and I couldn't be more excited for her! She is going to be such an amazing mother, and I can't wait to meet her little baby girl!

My friend Ellie and I threw a co-ed baby shower for Joleen and her husband Aaron this past weekend. We threw around a few different ideas, and in the end decided on a book theme, since Joleen is really into literature.

We had originally planned to hold the shower on the outdoor patio at Merry Cellars Winery, but the day ended up being stormy and rainy. When we said shower we didn't mean literally! So we opted to move it inside to their barrel room which was perfect. And huge thank you to the staff at Merry Cellars for being so accommodating last minute! 

Ellie made really cute cupcakes (you may remember her cake from this post), and topped them with these adorable book toppers that she made. If you like this idea but don't want to make them yourself, I also really love these ones.

I loved the book themed snack table! Joleen is a book worm like me, and is excited to grow their baby's library. I had so much fun choosing some of my favorite books for her, and coordinating snacks with them!

We picked pink peonies from the local you-pick flower farm, and arranged them in burlap and lace mason jars. The flowers ended up being a perfect pop of color inside the barrel room!

It was so much fun to shower our dear friends with love as they prepare to embark on this big adventure of parenthood!
