A Little Golden Book Party is a great theme for a storybook baby shower or birthday bash. There are so many cute ideas for decorating. Here are just a few creative ways to help make your Little Golden Book Party more memorable. Although this theme is great for a birthday of any age, it’s terrific for a first birthday party (the golden birthday).

I didn’t think I’d fall into this world of Pokémon Go. Right now, I need to get to one of those big blue things to get more Pokeballs. I’m all out. In case you don’t know how (which I doubt), here’s how to get more Pokeballs. I’ve found that if you drive around a hospital parking lot at night heading toward a Pokestop, the hospital security guards will start following you around like a terrorist. I drove into a park at about ten o’clock at night and there must have been 10-12 cars there with the occupants roaming outside their vehicles, phones in hand, chasing invisible creatures. When you think about it, it’s really very bizarre. I do agree with most, however, that there are some places where Pokestops and Pokémon just shouldn’t be (i.e., Arlington and the Holocaust Museums).
I have fallen prey to this Pokémon phenomenon and now my work has caught this Pokémon craze, too. In case you want to celebrate a child’s birthday with a Pokémon-themed birthday invitation or announce your pregnancy using a Pokémon pregnancy announcement, here you go. Thanks, Nintendo.
Here’s how we celebrated my daughter’s first birthday. We had a storybook-themed party. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Here is our table setting. To the right are little honey jars. That was my favor for guests to take home. My cousin, Molly, made this pooh bear jar holder to store them in. She did a great job.
Our invitations were Little Golden Books themed and people seemed to really like them. I still sell these in my shop. If you’d like me to customize one for you ($10), click here to visit this product in my Etsy Shop.
On the card, we asked guests to bring a children’s book instead of a card to help grow Aria’s library. I included a book plate that I created and stuck those little square ticky tape things on each corner, ready to be peeled and placed inside the book.
I placed books around the room as decorations. Don’t mind the Mcdonald’s cup in the picture below…
Our cake was in the shape of an opened book and I used some clip art to decorate it. You can purchase a Where The Wild Things Are clip art pack by clicking here.
Aria’s aunt paid for a professional photographer to take photos at the party. Since I’m usually the one doing the photographing, this was great because I’m actually in many of the photos (something that doesn’t happen often). It was great getting these pictures and I think having a photographer photograph your party is worth every penny.
Below are just a few more of the memories from our party. Hope you enjoyed this post.
