This theme is super easy to put together – and you can tailor it to any color palette/fabric design you like… Click here for the details!

LOVE this! I am all about anything mod baby and not cutesy baby. My homegirl Amy (of Stem) just did my baby shower last weekend and it was also incredible. Check my blog for pics if you’re so inclined!

I’ve been waiting to see this since the “teaser” of it awhile back. The cutest thing I have ever seen. Ever. I see me using this in my future. I am that psychic.

Thanks on the congrats, and by the way, you are HELLA creative, and correct when you say Amy’s shower was ridiculously cute, as is she (if not a wee bit craaaazy), but that’s why I love her!

That is the most creative baby shower idea I’ve ever seen. I love giving books as baby gifts, and this theme is a perfect way to expand on that gift idea. Love it!

ShopLittleGifts SAYS:

very cool! love it. it’s casual, it’s dreamy. i think it’s a great theme for kids’ birthday parties as well. they can do dream sketches or make one page of a story time book each that compiles as a book (for reprinting) and they can all take it home the next day.

i remember the teaser- the “real deal” did not disappoint! And how cute is that baby?!

Christy from Thank You Notes SAYS:

This is such a brilliant and inexpensive idea! I’ve never seen this before. I might actually do a variation on this for a grown-up birthday pajama party!

thrilled by the thought SAYS:

This is so stinkin’ creative. I wish I knew someone who I could throw a baby shower for!

Loving the idea!! It also makes me brainstorm for a cute Dr. Seuss themed birthday party! :)

Love this idea for a baby shower.

My daughter and I used this same idea for an early morning breakfast party that she did. It is a favorite theme of mine because it is fairly inexpensive to pull off not to mention easy.

I love seeing how you incorporated it for a shower – the colors pop and it is such an inviting table.

Cari SAYS:

LOVE THIS! I looked online and IKEA doesn’t have the orange sheets anymore =(.

I wish I knew WHERE TO GET everything… I’ve been searching online for over an hour with no luck! If anyone knows where to find cool invites for this, sheets that would work – I’d love some tips! I think I can locate the plates and things….

Michelle SAYS:

I love this theme!
I am going to do this theme for an upcoming shower for a friend that is having her 4th baby. I was hoping you might post a picture or give me some ideas for the invitation (looks and wording) as well as any games to play or things to do at the shower.
