Since our sweet Sienna was born 5 weeks early, we didn’t have a chance to throw a baby shower before her arrival. So, I thought it made perfect sense for us to throw a Sip & See – or a Hello Baby Shower, as I am calling ours. :)
Have you lovelies heard of a Sip & See?
A Sip & See is a baby shower held after the baby arrives! I love this idea, especially for a busy couple like us. Before Sienna arrived we were so busy preparing to become parents + working on GWS that we just didn’t have any weekends free for a proper baby shower! As a bonus, since Mom is no longer pregnant at a Sip & See, she can have a cocktail with her friends if she wants! :)
So, we decided a Hello Baby! shower would be the perfect way to introduce our little lady to family + friends. The other thing I love about this type of shower? It is pretty much just an open house – no lame baby shower games (although there are some that I do love!) or set times – just a time for others to come meet our little lady…
Since the shower will be more of an open house, I wanted to create a fun Bubbly Bar where guests could make their own mimosas. I love a mimosa and with spring here, wanted to do something with lots of bright colors. I love how the Bubbly Bar came together and we’ll be sharing a DIY on how to create this fun colorful bar on Monday also – perfect for a bridal shower or wedding too! :)
Instead of paper cups and plates, which just create more trash (yes, we are keeping all our trash to one bag!), we rented gorgeous vintage plates + coupes from Casa de Perrin. I found the wooden letters from Michael’s and painted them in bright colors to match our palette.
I love animals, so we incorporated some cute gold animals into the Bubbly Bar to keep it fun!
Hopefully our sip & see shower will inspire you to throw your own non-traditional baby shower!
