[Inspiration] Books and a Movie Party

By  | Last Updated:  

Book themed birthday parties are so much fun! (See this Harry Potter party as an example, if you don’t believe me.) When I was a kid, I loved buying new books more than anything. I even made pockets and cards to go in each of them, just like the library. So this very special party speaks to me on every level possible.

Ashley from Ashley Ann Photography threw it with her sons as a “book-raiser” for children in the hospital. In her original post, Ashley says that the invitations included bookplates that attendees put into their donation and and guests were invited to come in their PJs for stories and a movie.

In her original post, Ashley says that the invitations included bookplates that attendees put into their donation and and guests were invited to come in their PJs for stories and a movie. I love the idea of donating books in lieu of gifts for a child’s birthday party. If your house is like ours, you will know that my son Sam has enough toys. Something like this could start a wonderful family tradition and teach the benefits of charity from an early age. I’m thrilled we could post this party as today’s inspiration on our blog.

We have a few more of Ashley’s wonderful photos below and be sure to visit her blog, Under the Sycamore.

He has taught her that it's okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots.
