Invitations that Request Guests to Bring a Book

It is a wonderful way to celebrate the new baby and to give the parents-to-be a library of books for their little one to enjoy if you throw a baby shower with the theme “bring a book.” The idea is straightforward: guests are asked to bring a book in lieu of the more customary baby shower present.

It is a unique way to celebrate the expansion of the family and to express your affection for the newest member of the group.

What exactly is meant by a “Bring a Book” Baby Shower?

Bring along a book guests are encouraged to bring copies of their favorite children’s books to the baby shower as a gift for the soon-to-be parents. There is a strict no-used-books policy, so every book must be brand new. Because of this, the parents-to-be are able to get a head start on stocking their future child’s library before the child has even been born.

How to Select the Appropriate Invitation to Best Communicate the Theme

There are many wonderful options available to choose from when it comes time to select invitations for your own “Bring a Book” baby shower when the time comes. Here are some concepts to consider:

  • Choose an invitation that has bright illustrations from children’s books or rhymes from a nursery. This won’t be your run-of-the-mill baby shower after all, as this will immediately establish the mood!

  • When looking for invitations for your book-themed party, be on the lookout for ones that feature a motif of a book open on its pages or an open book.

  • Add graphics that are bold and feature iconic characters from well-known children’s books such as Winnie the Pooh or Eloise for the front of the product.

  • Choose an invitation that has a section at the bottom where you can write “In lieu of gifts, please bring your favorite childhood book.” This will ensure that everybody is aware of the kind of shower that is being held.

  • Select an invitation that has a picture frame border for those who are looking for something more understated. The picture frame border can be filled in with images that are related to books and reading.

In general, the invitation that you select should be one that reflects not only your style but also the style of your guests, and it should also convey the message that guests should bring books to celebrate this momentous occasion.

Choose an invitation in a way that reflects both who you are and the significance of the occasion, and the process should be enjoyable and straightforward regardless of the aesthetic direction you take.
