Back in August, I hosted a baby shower for a close friend who's due to have her first baby at the end of this month. The mom-to-be is a bibliophile so the baby shower had a book theme!
It was fun acquiring children's classic and contemporary books for the baby's starter library. It's never too early to instill a love reading!
The stairs and coffee table's book decor.
The gender of the baby will be a surprise to all!

Special shout-out to my mom who cooked the delicious dishes:
Strega Nona's Vermicelli Noodles (bottom left); Pigs' Pork in Pineapple Sauce (bottom middle); Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Chicken's with Mushrooms (bottom right)
Left: If You Give a Mouse a Cookie Platter
Right: Each Peach Pear Plum's Peaches in Light Syrup (top); The Hungry Caterpillar Fruit Tray (middle); Franklin the Turtle Chocolates (bottom)
The Curious George Belgian Chocolate Chip Banana Cake by La Rocca Cakes.
Of course, I had to infuse some tea elements into the baby shower!
The mom-to-be gifted me this cute elephant teapot years ago.
"Peter was not very well during the evening. His mother put him to bed, and made some chamomile tea: 'One table-spoonful to be taken at bedtime'."

The shower favours.
I look forward to sharing my favourite children's books (The Velveteen Rabbit and The Paper Bag Princess are my all-time faves!) with my friend's little one!
