Bookish Buys: It's Party Time!

Friday, August 23, 2013
Before I get to the Bookish Buys part, I just want to say that this is my 500th post! That's a pretty huge milestone for me, so in order to celebrate, this Bookish Buys is going to be party-themed....

Book nerd style.

So, about Bookish Buys: Each Friday I post a different collection of book nerd swag, from jewelry to action figures, that I find on the Internets. Please know that I am not getting reimbursed in any way, shape, or form if you choose to buy these items.


First things first for a party, you must have invitations.
Library Card Invitations
And what better invitations than an old fashioned library invite?

Decorations are necessary, so why not go with an edible Harry Potter decoration?
Snitch Cake Pops
YUM.

As for nonedible decorations...
Bookish Wallpaper
Stylin' and an easy way to make any bookish party fabulous.

And, of course, it's a party. So you're going to need a cake.

Just imagine that says 500 Posts!! Or something like that.

Naturally, you can't let your guests leave empty handed.

Tres chic, non?

Thank you to all of my followers, those who have stuck with me through all 500 posts, those who are just joining in, and everyone in between! You guys are awesome. <3

Would you ever throw a bookish party?

    1. Definitely! I think that's what they were intended for on the site, actually.

  2. I have no idea where you find all these stuff! My artsy little part of myself always enjoys seeing these things.

    1. I find it all over- Tumblr, Etsy, random Google Searches, haha. I'm so glad you like it! :)

  3. Very cute and original items you found! The library card invites are a nice touch, and of course bookmarks. My oldest granddaughter who loves to read just had a birthday, too bad. This would have made a great theme, and perhaps tell the guests to bring *their favorite* book as a gift for the birthday girl!

  6. Love all of these. Could easily use some of these just for a book club meeting! Everyone's so busy in December that we usually just have a party rather than reading a book that month, so I'm going to use some of these--fun! ~Pam

  7. Congratulations on your 500th post! That's a great accomplishment and I hope your blog will see many more. This week's picks, as usual, are envy-inspiring; I especially like the old fashioned invitations, and I would love to make that cake. Can I hire you to plan my next birthday party? :)

    1. Haha thank you! Maybe that will be my back up career: Party Planner for the Book Nerds. :)

  8. Congrats on your 500th post! It's definitely an awesome accomplishment.

    I'd love to host a bookish party but most all my bookish friends are online! Not nearly as much fun to have a virtual party. The cupcakes just aren't as flavorful.

    1. Yeah, that's true. :/ Maybe you could have a book blogger hang out with this theme, though! :)

  9. Hooray for your 500th post! :) I love the bookish wallpaper (especially how the books are organized by color) and the library card invitations are so neat!
