A Cheery Sip and See with a Floral Theme for Our Little Girl

Home and Garden Living

If you already follow me on Instagram, you’ll know our daughter! We had a bit of a quiet hibernation after she was born, but now we’re ready to make sure she meets our loved ones. Some of our family members from out of town came to visit at the end of the summer, and since we opted out of having a baby shower, we decided to host a sip and see.

Why We Chose a Sip and See Party

A sip and see is kind of like a baby shower except that the focus is on guests visiting and meeting the baby rather than the mother opening gifts. Our goal for the party was definitely for our loved ones to get some quality time with her and so a sip and see was the right fit for us. She has everything she needs and we’re also not really into party games (we’re totally no fun lol).

There are a few other nice things about sip and see parties. They’re more inclusive than baby showers in that it’s more than ok to invite dads and kids. We also really liked that we could hold the event ourselves (I’m kind of a control freak lol). To be honest, it also cut down on my housework. Instead of tidying for each guest separately I only had to make sure the house was in really good shape for one day lol (doing housework with a newborn is like a giant game of chess…a game I usually seem to lose).

Floral-Themed Sip and See

In the spirit of keeping things simple we decided on a floral-themed sip and see. We got some beautiful organic flowers, matching flower crowns, and made some giant DIY tissue paper flowers. Easy peasy! I also couldn’t help slipping in a few bees here and there. Bees love flowers right!?

We made a kids play area with this white canvas teepee I found online (made in Canada!).

DIY Sip and See Food

For the food, we made some simple appetizers that could be prepped quickly (I’m all about easy right now!). The party was in the middle of the afternoon, so the food was all snacks and finger food. We also picked up some yummy cupcakes, cake pops, and meringues from a local cake shop.

Gold-dipped cake pops = so good!

Watermelon+feta+mint is pretty darn tasty! Pop them on a toothpick with balsamic glaze and enjoy :)

We also set up a bar area with lemonade, water, wine, and beer. I re-used the “Cheers” bar sign from our wedding.

Sip & See Outfit

She wore an adorable grey linen romper from local clothing co. Nest and Nurture. Fortunately there was a sale on Freshly Picked moccasins so I was able to snap up a pair of those too! They’d been on my wish list for her for way too long (ever since I heard the founder interviewed on a podcast) so I’ve been watching for deals.

She also wore one of her organic gerber onesies under the romper. She wore them every day this summer. The gerber onesies are super well made and stand up very well. She’s growing so fast though now I’m going to have to size up!

She kicked off her shoes pretty early in the party…

Sip & See Photo Wall

We kept the DIY sip and see decor very simple. My aunts helped put together a photo wall with some of the best photos we have of Bea so far. We strung jute twine across the wall and used regular clothespins to attach photos. It was easy and I’m so happy with how it turned out that I left it up!
