Nursery rhyme onesies (we freezer paper stenciled them after seeing this fabulous post at Oh So Happy Together!)… sorry I don’t have any pictures of the finished products.

Since children’s books are so easy to love, I think this theme would suit any mom-to-be… send us pics (or add them to flickr)- we’d love too see your storybook shower!

    This is so adorable! I recently discovered my love for hosting baby showers. I hope my friends start having babies soon! I really love your stencilled onesies and the amazing decorating job, WOW!

    I recently did a whole baby shower that was onesie themed. If your interested, I'm doing a whole series about it on my blog. :)

    Blueberries For Sal was one of my FAVORITES when I was little. I saved the book and I read it to my 3 year old now =)

    Super cute theme and lots of fun details. Anyway, my friend will be having a baby shower next month and I really need to find baby gifts for her. And also, we are planning to give her a surprise baby shower party. I would love to get some ideas in this shower. Thank you so much for sharing! :)

    Fabulous! I did a baby shower for my sister 8 years ago that was this same theme. I asked each guest to give their favorite title to the expectant momma, to build the baby's library! It was great!
    THanks for sharing!
