A Lovely Build-a-Library Baby Shower
We're beyond smitten with the style and theme of this build-a-library baby shower thrown by Dina Holland of Honey & Fitz for one of her close friends. "I knew the mom-to-be would be having a much larger shower thrown by her family where most of the larger baby items would be taken care of, so I decided to go with a shower theme that would naturally restrict the gift list," Dina says. "The mom-to-be is also a former schoolteacher, so I knew she would love the idea of a library for her little one!"
While Dina obviously has a great eye for design and loves to throw a party, she also has two little boys under the age of 3 and says her "goal for this party was really to prove that you can pull off something fun and festive without being a frazzled mess by the time the first guest arrives!" She accomplished it with lots of store-bought food, repurposed furniture, Rifle Paper Co. printables, and some adorable — but doable — DIY projects.
