A Charming Children's Book-Inspired Baby Shower
It's fairly unusual to plan your own baby shower, but for event planner Kristen Janes of Kio Kreations, it meant she got the party of her dreams. "I have always wanted to have a classic children's book-inspired baby shower, since I have a degree in illustration and have been collecting children's books for years," says Kristen. "I wanted to start a collection for my soon-to-be-born daughter." Tables inspired by Eric Carle, Beatrix Potter, Dr. Seuss, and Little Golden Books introduced the theme to guests through flowers, decor, and food ("green egg salad and ham sandwiches" and "fruit salad made with leftovers from a Very Hungry Caterpillar" were just two offerings).
