Emily's Baby Shower

Yesterday at Egg Press we had an ice cream social party for Emily who is expecting twins. It was a book shower. We've done this before for other Egg Press expecting moms – we find it to be a great gender non-specific theme for a shower. And because books come in all price points (or can be hand-made) it's also affordable for everyone.

We were surprised that though there were 19 of us, there was only one duplicate book. Good thing Emily and Ben are expecting twins! There were board books, designy books, classics, as well as one or two aimed more for Mom and Dad. We had ice cream with fixin's, and root beer and orange soda for floats. The flowers were by Anna Mara. Two stand out wrapping jobs were from Jon (see the card he personalized) and Sarah who hand lettered Emily's name on the package.

It was a nice break from the heat, and lots of fun to sit around and look at new books, find inspiration, and reminisce about old favorites.

Happy halloween everyone! Some of us celebrated Halloween last weekend as zombies, bouquets of flowers and child beauty queens. Others will be chaperoning Care Bears, mummies, ninjas!, Grim Reapers, zombies and witches tonight - then confiscating a large portion of the loot. Have you heard of the Switch Witch?! Here's the deal kids: if you leave your candy outside in a pumpkin, the Switch Witch will take it and leave a toy in its place. Seems fair right...?
