We are Loving Joanna Gaines Book Themed Baby Shower

Forget the rubber duckies or teddy bears, Joanna Gaines' baby shower was as chic and fabulous as we would expect.

"I like big books and I cannot lie," the pregnant Fixer Upper star captioned the photo gallery on Instagram. "Blown away by the creativity and thoughtfulness of my friends- just the cutest book shower ever for baby Gaines! Feelin' the love... now I just need to figure out how to shove these books in my car so I can get them to the farm! #babygotbooks"

The soon-to-be mom of five posed next to super-sized books that were adorned with cascading blue, green, yellow, and white balloons all while giving us a glimpse of her adorable baby bump.

Joanna also gave her followers a sneak peak of the party d?cor in other photos. From a whimsical centerpiece made out of watercolor leaf shapes that were cut from old book pages to pencils and notepads at each place setting, every detail has Gaines signature style.

Chip and Joanna are already parents to Drake, 13; Ella, 11; Duke, 9; and Emmie, 8. So it's been a while since they have been on diaper duty. However, with all of the new books that baby boy Gaines received from this baby shower, his parents and siblings will have plenty of reading material to share at bedtime.

We absolutely love the idea of a book shower as an alternative to guests bringing gifts. It's a perfect idea if the mom-to-be already has everything she needs for her baby.

If you are hosting a baby shower and need some inspiration, here are nine themes that we absolutely love.
