Baby Shower: Storybook Theme

Do you remember this post about me & my best friends being pregnant at the same time?

Well we threw my good'ol friend Candice a shower this past weekend!
She decided on a "Storybook Theme" baby shower... here's what the invite looked like:

{It was an old school library card}
*Instead of a card you bring your favorite children's book*

To keep with the "Storybook Theme",
all of the food was coordinated with a different children's book... 

Here was our giant caterpillar hanging above the serving area...
{from the book: A Very Hungry Caterpillar}

{Chocolate dipped mint oreo pops- same book: A Very Hungry Caterpillar} 
 for Oreo Pops "how-to" SEE HERE

{Limeade & Strawberry Lemonade to go with the book: "Pinkalicious"}

{Custom baby McKinley water bottles}

{Green Deviled Eggs - book: "Green Eggs and Ham"}

{Assorted Veggie Trey - book: "Little Pea"}

{A few other books to go with the food}

{Utensils - book: "And the DISH Ran Away with the SPOON"} 

This was the mini book garland hanging underneath the serving area

Next we have the dessert table...

{decor hanging above the sweets}

{the dessert table - book: "Fancy Nancy"}
*note the fancy pink tutu table cloth*

 {We had an ice cream machine to create your own *fancy* sundaes}

{Candice made this storybook sign that said "Baby McKinley"}

{A few table decorations with stacks of books, mason jars & purple flowers}

{A game where you guess how many candies are in each bottle- 
winner gets to keep the bottle of candy}

{Candice opening some cute gifts}

{A picture of the 3 pregos... we're getting closer!}

{Our sweet friend Brittany stopped by for a quick visit}

{"It's A Girl" sign hanging in the front entryway}

{The favor table}

{Baby Shower Favors were a bag of Swedish Fish - book: 
"One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish"}

A special thank you to all those who helped 
put this fun little shower together!
Thanks so much to those who came to celebrate 
Candice & baby McKinley's special day!
Hope you had a fabulous time Candice! Love you!
