It was a Sip and See celebrating a baby boy. Guests were to bring a book so this young one would grow up with words.  With that in mind, books became the inspiration for this delightful table.

Favorite children’s books shared space with stuffed animals.

Thank goodness the now adult daughters left some behind.

Books and critters were surrounded by good things to eat which made the critters very happy!  The food required much more effort than a very simple tablescape which was just right for the occasion.

Linked to Tablescape Thursday with other great table ideas.

i love your comments, so jump right in and share your thoughts

  1. Love Love Love this idea! What a darling table. I cannot think of better gifts for a newborn.
    Thanks for dropping in.. yes we spend quite a bit of time in Santa Fe. It’s only 4 1/2 hours away and when I win the mega million jackpot, I’m moving there.It’s a very artsy city and it does just feed my soul!

  2. you are so creative — could you start on climate change? How about hair color that is one time only — poof — your hair grows out its youthful color?

  3. What an incredibly cute idea!!! It’s always so hard to come up with fun ideas for showers, but you hit this out of the ballpark! I really like the kangaroo! You’re right: It IS a lot harder to do the food part. It can be fun, but it’s still hard. Those little petit fours with the blue booties are darling!!! Have a wonderful weekend!!!

  4. This gives me goosebumps! I love this idea so much. Sometimes I think people think I am strange when I bring a book as a shower gift but I know that books outlast clothes and diapers. I just love this whole table! I know I haven’t been around much lately but I wanted to see what you are up to. I am so glad I didn’t miss this!
