Showers & Sprinkles
You may think I’m talking about spring weather…but I’m not! I don’t know about you, but it seems the world has gone BABY CRAZY! Lately, everywhere I turn I see a baby or a pregnant woman. But you know what – it warms my heart. The promise and excitement of new life is always something to celebrate. Something to cherish.
Now, we all know that baby showers are pretty standard fare when a woman is about to become a mommy. But have you heard of a baby sprinkle? A baby sprinkle is like a “step below” a baby shower. The mommy can gather with her absolute closest friends and family and celebrate the soon-to-be arrival of her newborn bundle of joy. Baby sprinkles are for women who are becoming a mom for the second (or third!) time around.
What makes a good baby sprinkle gift? The once-again mommy can always use items such as diapers, formula (if so chosen), baby food, and bath products. Another great idea would be a massage gift certificate, a day at the spa, a simple facial or manicure, or baby sitting “coupons.” Think simple date night away from hectic daily life. Being a mom is hard!
Since a baby sprinkle isn’t a full blown baby shower, some choose not to go all out when inviting guests, selecting decor, food, and entertainment. Some still play games and have super cute inexpensive baby sprinkle favors.
But if your mantra is “Go Big or Go Home”, by all means…GO FOR IT! Create fancy invitations (we know of a fabulous online store who can hook you up!), delish food, and great decor.
