Build-a-Library Baby Shower Invitations on etsy

Build-a-Library Baby Showers continue to be a fun theme.  Food, games, and decor all take their cue from favorite children’s books.  And the best part is that vintage books can be found cheaply at almost any thrift store.

But setting the right feel for your shower begins when you send the invitation.  That’s why my custom library card invites are a smart purchase.

Have a shower color scheme?  I may be able to match the card stock color to your choice.  I use real library pockets, then attach the book pages to the front.

Will the shower be featuring Dr. Seuss, Richard Scarry, or Little Golden Books?  My book stash is constantly growing and changing, so chances are I can match to your theme.

The reverse side is a great place to include extra details.  Some people carry the theme over to the gifts, and ask guests to bring books for baby’s library.  There are several creative ways to do this.

In lieu of a card, please bring a copy of your favorite childhood book to help build a library for baby.

One small request that won’t be too hard,  Please bring a book instead of a card, Whether Cat in the Hat or Winnie the Pooh, You can sign the book with a note from you.
