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, who put the shower together with the help of her best friends, mom, and sister. "I wanted to start a collection for my soon-to-be-born daughter, so I figured a book-themed shower would get us on the right track."
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). A host of creative shower games and a DIY onesie station added to the fun. Keep clicking to check out all the beautiful and inspirational details, captured by photographer Caitlin Hazelton.
