Storybook Shower

Over the weekend my friends and fellow book club buddies threw me an aptly themed storybook luncheon. 

The decor consisted of faux storybooks strung from the ceiling:

Custom place settings with beautiful flower arrangements:

This non-alcoholic sangria was fantastic!

We had a delicious meal of salad with homemade dressing, baked eggplant, cous cous, and polenta fries with aioli sauce, all courtesy of one of the hostesses who is an amazing cook.  Followed by this delicious cake, which tasted as cute as it looks (I unfortunately didn't capture the food):

And they showered me with beautiful gifts and a book too, so the little one can follow in her mom's footsteps of being a big reader:

I have less than one week until my due date so I'm definitely counting down now!

Nostalgic classics!
