A “Sip and See” is a great way to show off your sweet baby on your own terms. We see more and more moms skipping the shower and opting for this laid back gathering after baby is born. Guests can come and go offering congratulations and greeting the baby, allowing new parents to see a lot of friends and family in one extended visitation period. This is appealing to shy mamas too because your bundle of joy is the center of attention and there is no need for group gift opening either. Here are some tips to pull together a breakfast time sip and see party!
1. Create a cozy atmosphere – Pillows and blankets make the floor an inviting space to gather and play, especially if children are invited.
2. Serve up some sips! Guests understand that as new parents, you are quite busy with this new baby! Guests can sip on drinks, but don’t expect a full spread at this type of party. We love the idea of cocoa and coffee packed with mini marshmallows from Malvi.
3. Serve simple snacks: Glass jars with mini donuts for the adults and cereal for the tots is an easy pickup snack for guests to much as they mingle or take to go.
