Sarah wrote in to share a recent Sip and See she threw for a good friend. For those unfamiliar, a Sip and See is a gathering held after a baby is born. It's a way to celebrate their birth and for family and friends to get their first glimpse at the new addition. Also, it's a wonderful way to shower the Mom (or parents) with some love, get them out of the house a bit and of course, let them show off as proud parents.
Sarah took her theme inspiration from my friend Kim at TomKat Studios. While Sarah made her own invitations using digital scrapbook kits, Kim was the originator of the design and actually sells the invitations as well as a whole party kit in her store.
Reminder: make sure you click on the pictures to see the detail.
Here are Sarah's invitations.
When I saw Sarah's entry, I laughed. I can't tell you how many of those bubble wands I've purchased!
Inside the pots? Those are bubble wands from the Dollar Store and my son loves them! I love how they really add to a theme and come in bright colors. Sarah inserted them into colorful pots found at the Dollar General.
Sarah found these great drink jars at Walmart for $5.96 each! Added some great labels and colorful drinks!
Cupcakes! The cupcake stand was found at Michaels (don't forget your 50% off coupon!)
And the cupcake toppers again were inspired by TomKat Studio.
If you look closely, Sarah cut paper to fit each level of the cupcake stand. Brought in a bit more color and whimsy to a plain, white stand.
For favors, Sarah created the traditional candy bar except ... guests were asked to fill up a sippy cup to take home! Sippy cups were found at the Dollar Store at the fabulous price of 5 for $1!
Candy was easy to find inexpensively at Walmart.
Thanks for sharing, Sarah! And welcome to the world, Jasper! With Sarah in your life, you're sure to be showered in fun times!
