Bookworm themed baby shower plus gift ideas from Noodle & Boo

I attended the cutest baby shower in Jersey today! My friend Miral has a lil baby girl on the way, and being quite the book connoisseur that she is, it was only natural her cousin and sister-in-law, Shazia and Nida, throw her a bookworm-themed baby shower.

Diaper tower surrounded with favors: little notebooks accompanied by bookworm bookmarks

The Very Hungry Caterpillar cake and cupcakes by Sugar Drop

The hosts did such a wonderful job with all the little touches: the invitations were fashioned like those old school library slips; the party room had literary quotes and book excerpts hanging on the walls; we nibbled on Goodnight Moon inspired cookies and a cupcake-cake creation inspired by The Very Hungry Caterpillar (by Sugar Drop); and guests were asked to gift the future mommy with their favorite childhood book (Whattup Corduroy).

This all reminded me of an awesome baby-friendly line I came across recently: Noodle & Boo. The line consist of delicate smelling cleansers and moisturizers that are safe and natural. The Newborn 2-in-1 Hair & Body Wash is a high moisture formula, and contains pro vitamin B and E to keep hair healthy. They also have SPF 50 sunscreen (which is a non oily and water resistant formula with aloe), plus moisturizers formulated specifically for diaper rashes, eczema, or extra dry skin containing soothing calendula. Of course, the entire line is dermatologist and pediatrician tested, hypo-allergenic, and tested for sensitive skin.

Noodle & Boo products: Super Soft Lotion, Baby Balm, and Hair & Body Wash

Not only do they have amazing gifts, (I love their Essential Kit ($15) and themed gift sets like the Bashful Bunny Gift Set, they also have packages to help with baby shower planning. Their Baby Shower in a Box contains gifts for the mama, shower games and prizes.

Noodle & Boo products cost $9.50 and up…check em out at Must be baby-making season cuz I have at least a few more to go to before summer’s end, and I’m definitely taking these along ;).
