Looking for a different bridal shower idea? One that isn't covered in pink confetti (not that there is anything wrong with that...)? How about a literary shower? Pick the bride's favorite book or author, and build the party from there. The folks over at Pemberly Pond are perfect for inspiration for this little shindig. For invitations send out postcards with quotes from the featured author. Check out the postcards (above) with the gorgeous illustrations!


At the party hang prints of book cover re-interpretations or beautifully designed lists of titles (you can give these to the bride after the party, if you'd like).


For gift bags, put together a little collection. Enclose a bookmark and elements of the story, such as this one from Alice in Wonderland.
