Celebrate Baby! | Little Golden Books Baby Shower

A baby shower held in honor of you and your anticipated little one, is one of the exciting moments of pregnancy. A chance to come together with close friends and family to celebrate the new life that will join this great big world. Having a specific theme is the best way to pull together a fun event for everyone to enjoy.

One that I’ve noticed growing in popularity is a Little Golden Books theme. The classic books were first introduced in 1942 and are making a huge come back lately. Moms and party planners have been searching thrift stores and their own personal stash from their childhood, looking for inspiration and props for the theme. Vanessa of Tried and True hosted an incredible Little Golden Books themed baby shower filled with DIY details. She shares all her tutorials and printables on her site. Click through for all the wonderful details of this popular baby shower theme.
