Getting a group of friends together doesn’t always mean that they know each other. Filling a container with “Conversation Starters” to get everyone chatting is another one of our Literary Baby Shower ideas — and since much of this party decor is created from book pages sewn together, stitched detailing on the paper slips unifies the look.

Sibling Tshirts and Tags

If the new mother has other children at home, handmade t-shirts for each of the new baby’s siblings is a thoughtful gift. Download the high-resolution ABC Poster that can be printed as an 8×10 and framed, and the free printable ABC tags.

  1. Really clever ideas for baby showers.

  2. What a great idea for a baby shower. Having so many friends and family all coming from your different social groups can be awkward or a worry, but I’m sure conversation starters will ease the awkward silences, even with those who tend to be more shy.

    Thanks for sharing,
