Vintage Book Baby Shower

My good friend and fellow Karen threw a fantastic baby shower this weekend for our other friend Kim. Karen is definitely the hostess with the mostess. No detail was left undone.

Karen's theme was vintage children's books. She decorated her place with classic Winnie the Pooh bears, children's books and adorable home-made bunting.

I LOVE bunting!

The food was superb. She went all out making mini-quiches, baked french toast (using this awesome Smitten Kitchen recipe), maple sandwich cookies and carrot cake cupcakes. She also laid out bagels and lox, a cheese board, and fruit.

Cookies and bunting. Awesome.

Of course no shower is complete without gifts and games. I'm not a big fan of baby shower games--especially anything that involves guessing what's in a diaper--but these were actually fun. We played gift bingo by guessing what gifts we thought Kim would receive.

We also guessed celebrity baby names. I am embarrassingly good at that.

Kim got some really cute things for her little girl.

Thanks for a fun day Karen and Kim!
