I actually created this Sip & See printable collection awhile ago. If you’re not familiar with a Sip & See don’t feel bad – likely you’re not from the South (neither am I actually) where Sip & Sees are apparently quite popular. I was a party planner and thus I learned about them some time ago. I love the concept and wish more of us Yanks would jump on board.
So, here’s the deal – rather than having a typical baby shower, the couple waits until the baby is born and then invites everyone over to their house for a Sip & See. Come Sip cocktails and other refreshments while you See the new baby, check in on the new Mama and Papa, bring over little gifts and generally have a lovely time. People can come and go throughout the day, or it can be a set party time.
I know for some this idea may sound horrifying – the idea of being a new parent and hosting a party at your house, but think of it this way – it’s a nice way to get the inevitable ‘baby visit’ out of the way and with rules and confines (i.e. time limits and anti-bacterial hand sanitizer). Hopefully, after a couple of weeks, you’re starting to get into a groove with your new bundle of joy, so you can plan the Sip & See around things like nap time and whatnot. PLUS, with all the people coming to visit, the new parents may actually get a little break – just sit on your special chairs and bask in the glory of being new parents.
So, if you’d like to plan a Sip & See for yourself or for some awesome new parents, here is an entire Sip & See printable collection you can use for decor. This is an entire collection, it contains blank and personalized party logos, water bottle labels, blank and personalized favor tags, cupcake wrappers, circle banners (for boy or girl), a pennant banner for a girl and a pennant banner for a boy, and coordinating paper. Enjoy!
