Summer Sprinkle Baby ShowerPosted: June 2, 2014
With a summer breeze blowing in, what better way to break in the season than with an open house for family and friends? This festive party was a celebration for the whole family – a new house with plenty of room to play and the upcoming arrival of not one, but two little boys, cousins both due this sunny season.
A Sprinkle shower, for those not in the know, is a baby shower for soon-to-be-mamas who already have children. The idea is: “baby’s big sister has plenty to share, this is only a sprinkle to show that we care” 🙂
An invitation is like a window into the life of the party, so a bright blue raindrop invite was the perfect way to welcome guests to this festive shower. With a mister cooling system for the mamas, swimming for the kids, and hot dogs for the guys, everyone had a great time just hanging out and having fun!
Rainclouds, blue skies, silver raindrops – the colors of this beautiful garland tied the concept of a sprinkle shower perfectly together. Hanging above the buffet tables the garland welcomed our guests as they helped themselves to a hearty meal of fruit, hot dogs and a savory taco salad bar.
Adorning the dinner tables, these precious little elephants were a huge hit, especially with the young lady guests! They kept our young friends entertained throughout the evening. Don’t you just love them?!
Glittering Rainclouds, these adorable cupcake toppers were sprinkled through out the buffet line. Yum!
“It’s raining, it’s pouring” – a sprinkle shower wouldn’t be complete without these adorable droplets of rain and cloud cake toppers, yes please!
A raincloud and watercolor raindrops decor piece added an element of elegant fun to our sprinkle shower. I love how authentic it looks. My husband even compared this art to the work of Eric Carle – classic!
I have to admit I loved this art so much I printed off another copy on my home printer to display in this second floating picture frame. I’m quite seriously considering buying another large frame just so I can print this beautiful raindrop piece too!
“April showers” bring spring flowers. Okay, technically “May flowers,” but who wouldn’t want to be reminded of such beauty every month of the year? This perfectly handcrafted mobile would brighten any little one’s bedroom through all seasons.
This precious bird mobile came as a DIY kit. The birds were pre-assembled with thread, and all required of us was to pick a branch to display them on. I can’t get over how adorable they are!
I love how this fabulous mobile seems to represent clouds in a bright summer sky. It has such a relaxing ambiance, and we’re sure the new arrival will love it just as much as we do.
Hand crafted silver raindrop earrings made the perfect gift for our expectant big sisters. These little girls looked absolutely adorable as they pranced around showing off these cute little earring studs.
