What’s a Sip & See? The latest in baby shower ideas!

What’s a Sip & See, you ask? It’s a party that the new parents host after the baby is born to introduce him or her to all their friends. Unlike a traditional baby shower, gifts and games are not the main attraction at a Sip & See — instead, it’s all about the baby!

Advantages to a Sip & See
The biggest advantage to a Sip & See is that everyone gets to meet the new baby. But there are plenty of other reasons that you, as new parents, might find this an attractive baby shower idea. At a Sip & See, you get to make all the decisions. You can decide what to serve, whom to invite, when to have it, and whether or not there will be any embarrassing shower games. And you can avoid the awkward, one-by-one opening of gifts that can so easily drag down a baby shower.

Safari Baby Shower Ideas

intro
One of our favorite and most popular baby shower invitations is Wild Arrival From The Jungle, so we decided to throw a baby shower to show you all the different safari baby shower ideas we could come up with using the jungle animal theme. We held the party in an atrium of our building, which was filled with lush plants and perfect for a jungle theme.
Safari Dessert Table
We did a little hunting and found this fantastic green dresser at our local thrift store. It fit in so well in our little jungle we decided to use it as our dessert table and decorated it with a burlap table runner down the middle. We used a mixture of lanterns and tissue poms hanging above it to make it our focal point, along with garland made from our Jungle Table Decor.

You Say Baby, We Say Bebe: Fun With Baby Shower Invitation Wording

The only thing more fun than going to a baby shower is planning one for a friend! It’s just soooo fun to pick a theme, and come up with creative ideas for food and decorations. But, first have you picked out the baby shower invitations? The baby shower invitation wording, colors and theme can go a long way towards setting the mood for your shower.

Not only will it help you with decorating ideas, but the baby shower invitation wording can let your guests know what the mom-to-be is thinking about for nursery colors, what she might need in the way of baby gifts, where she is registered, or whether you’re planning any special activities they need to prepare for. Of course, there are a few must-haves when it comes to baby shower invitation wording:

  1. host’s name and address
  2. date of party
  3. start and end times
  4. contact info for RSVP
  5. gift registry information if mom-to-be wants to include it
  6. anything else you’d like guests to bring

Lastly, keep it fun. There are lots of ways to say, “You’re invited to a Baby Shower.” Here are a few baby shower invitation wording ideas that will get your shower off to the most adorable start.

Bicycle Theme Baby Shower Ideas

Erin is one of my close friends from college. She and Dave make the most perfect couple I think I’ve ever seen, so I was beyond excited to find out they were expecting. They’re going to make such great parents. They love to bike, so when we released our Double Bicycle and Baby Make Three Baby Shower Invitations I knew immediately it was the absolutely perfect theme for Erin’s baby shower ideas.

At Erin’s request, we hosted the shower at her house. A few of the hosts took her to the gym while the rest of us stayed back to decorate and set up. We used the colors from the invitation as our guide for the décor, knowing we wanted something festive for the door and lots of color inside. We saw a tutorial on how to make tissue paper tassel garland at TomKatStudio.com and loved the idea. We made a short one for the door and a longer one to hang inside on the archway.
