My BIL is making the invitations for my shower and my mom wants there to be something about like bringing a book to the shower to start the babys library.. i just cant think of the right wording to saying that on a invite
BallSox:This is a joke, right? You seriously don't see the post about this exact topic like half a page down?
sorry i didnt see it
I still don't see the other post...
I googled it and found the following:
In lieu of a card, please bring a book signed by you
just in time for Baby (Last Name)'s big debut!
A lot more ideas if you google it. Hope this helps!
I know a lot of people think this is tacky, but I love the idea :)
The hostess for my "Work shower" did this for me...people contributed money to a group gift if they wanted and then put a book for baby in a "wishing well" in the main office.
My little man at 0-1-2
Pin me baby!
My invite said: "Just one more request & we hope it's not hard. Please bring a baby book in place of a card. By signing your book we'll remember & share your favorite story even when your not there"
I thought it was a cute way to put it on the invite.
I ordered invitations from zazzle.com and the main reason was because they were designed for just that purpose, to have each guest bring a book. Anyway, here's the saying on the inviation and a link to the invitation in case you're interested:
Diapers, bibs, bottles and moreThat?s what typical showers are forBut let?s also help baby learn the ABCsBy building a library, if you pleaseInstead of a card, please let Mommy lookAt your special choice of a bookInside the cover, leave your name and a noteSo baby can grow and read what you wrote
Hope this helps ya
