Last month when I was in California visiting my family, my sister had a “Baby Sprinkle” to celebrate her new baby girl.
I had never heard of a “Baby Sprinkle” before, but it is a similar to a baby shower, but on a smaller scale. The mama-to-be doesn’t typically register for gifts, and the gifts that are brought are less elaborate than for the first born, with the assumption that mom doesn’t need quite as much as she did the first time around. The guest list is also smaller, with close friends and immediate family receiving invites.
My sister’s sister in-law hosted the event and it was absolutely beautiful! If y’all live in Northern California and need event planning services, you’ll want to check out K & J Wedding and Event Coordination.
The perfect way to greet guests.
A Biscuit Bar is an adorable brunch option, complete with homemade jams and gravy!
And a Yogurt Parfait station is a sweet and healthy addition.
It was a beautiful party and I am so happy I was in town to attend. I only wish I had brought something other than my iPhone with me for photos because the set up was incredible!
Since I now have two nieces and a nephew, and my sister’s new little girl to arrive in October, I’ve gotten pretty good at baby gift giving! Here are a few of my favorites…
One | Monogrammed Name Print: I ordered this two years ago for the baby shower I hosted for my sister’s first baby. It is a customizable image that is delivered to you via pdf. I had it printed and framed. It doubled as both party decor and a gift.
Two | Diapers: You can’t go wrong with bringing a pack of diapers to a baby shower. You know they will get used and most parents are more than happy to receive diapers as a gift.
Three | Sophie the Giraffe Teether: I bought this for my niece and it was a huge hit! It is the teether on the market right now, from what I have heard from my friends with kids. Plus, it is pretty cute!
Four | Jelly Cat Stuffed Animals: I love these stuffed animals. They are so soft and the sweet animals have the cutest little faces! I have purchased one for each one of my nieces and nephews and all the kids just love these stuffed animals!
Five | Good Night City Books: These books are so cute! I love sending them to out of town friends and family, as the Good Night San Antonio book showcases monuments and landmarks where I live. There are books for most states and major cities!
Six | Honest Company Products: I’ve heard so many good things about Honest Company from my friends and family with children.
Seven | Diaper Bag: If I ever have kids, this is the diaper bag I would choose!
Eight | Baby Lit Books: If you are a book nerd like me, then you’ll love these literary classics boiled down to a children’s board book. The books have various themes like, counting, colors, emotions, and weather. They even have an Emma book, based on the Jane Austen classic, that I just bought for my new niece who will be named Emma.
