A Sip and See Shower for the New Mama

After recently becoming an Auntie, throwing a baby shower has taken on a whole new meaning. My sister let me know that a Sip and See baby shower was so much easier for her to manage after having her little guy.

When another girlfriend let me know she was interested in the concept of a Sip and See shower, I was happy to host at my house. I loved keeping the invite group small and intimate so the new mom and baby didn’t feel super overwhelmed.

Luckily, I knew just where to turn to help fill the gap with plates, cutlery, balloons, treats, décor and more! I made one stop shop at my local Walmart. I first love strolling through the party aisle where you can often find unique finds like this doughnut stand, champagne glasses, the “Love” sign for the cake and rose gold cake stand. There are so many fun finds that probably get overlooked. There are so many fun finds like plates, gold cutlery, napkins, Illume balloons and more.

I often mix and match the various party décor collections Walmart carries for different themed parties like Anniversaries, Bachelorettes, Bridal Showers and more. What I love is that you can mix the collections since the colours blend together so well. For fun décor odds and ends, I always hit up the décor aisles at Walmart for finds like this gold side table, candle holders and bud vases.

And don’t forget the goodies! From doughnuts to cake and bubbly, grabbing everything from savoury to sweet finds is a breeze. And as always, don’t forget the fresh flowers! I divide up the carnation into various bud cases to sprinkle some colour around the house.

Last but not least – the guests! I love having little takeaway gifts set up for guests and these small bags were too cute to pass up. I put a bottle of pink nail polish in each along with a thank you card.
