Just simple brunch food. Cream cheese coffee cake. Fruit & chocolate dip. Egg casserole. Chocolate boxes. And lots of coffee & juice to drink.Here's the drink table. Another aspect to the theme was vintage tableware, so we used an assortment of mugs and containers and textures.
The simple table centerpiece: More flowers in another vase (I grabbed 3 of them), tealights in little teacups, and wooden letters (another Salvation Army find by Danielle).
Danielle did an amazing job on the favors. Each lady took home a handmade box with the cover of a children's book on the front. Inside were homemade cream cheese Oreo balls. And tucked inside the front cover was a list of reading-to-your-children tips (see below) from our guest "speaker" (the main-and-only event of the shower).
The lovely gift table. Since the theme was books, we invited all of the guests to bring a favorite children's book or even a book for Rachel.
Such a fun morning and a lovely shower for my friend. (I met her baby last night - such a precious little man.)
