Our Baby Sprinkle

On Sunday, we had our Baby Sprinkle (or baby shower as most of you would know it as)! So, what’s a baby sprinkle? It’s like a miniature version of a baby shower, often used for second child celebrations if you already had a baby shower prior. Less intense. Much more relaxed. Not usually as many games, but a great excuse for a celebration for the new baby! After all, they should be celebrated just as much as the first born, right?!

My beautiful mother was the one who hosted this pretty party. But as she was out of the country until a few days before, she let me put some things in motion before she arrived. We decided on a pastel rainbow theme and I just LOVE how it turned out. It was everything I had hoped for and was so nice to celebrate our newest addition with our friends and even some family this time!

We tried to keep things a little informal, so we set up a game station so people could kind of get to them at their own pace, rather than physically organizing too many games. And it was a wonderful way to do things. Find out what we did below…

GAMES & FUN

Diaper Signing Station – We asked our guests to write some late night notes on diapers with colorful sharpies and leave us messages for when we are up late changing diapers on baby girl. It was such a fun idea and had some hilarious little notes left for us. We saw this idea on Karissa Abbott’s Instagram Story and I immediately loved the idea so much, I screenshot it and told mum we had to do it! See below what our little sign read…

The Peg Game – This is a baby shower staple. Haha. I think I’ve played it at every shower I’ve ever been to. It’s a fun one that requires little set-up and is easy to play throughout the duration of the sprinkle. My husband took this game particularly seriously and ended up the reigning champion. See what our little sign said below…

Wishes for LaLa – We wanted a way that guests could speak into the life of LaLa once she was born, and we did this for Everley’s shower as well and have kept all the wishes for her in her baby box. I love how the prompts guide people to leave a special little wish for baby. See the little poem we had beside the wish cards (purchased from this Etsy seller) above…

Guess Baby’s Name – An easy one. We had been dropping hints to baby’s name since we started publicly calling her LaLa! Although we haven’t said what her name starts with… our guests gave it a shot and put their name guessing in a little basket. It was fun seeing what people thought LaLa’s name is! We’re keeping her actual name a secret until she enters this world. We used our pink letterboard to display this cute little activity… see below.

OUR BABY SPRINKLE OUTFITS

Brooke-Lyn wore a perfectly pastel striped maternity dress from ASOS, along with her pink buckle slip-on flats from SheIn. She later added her white cardigan to beat the wind and chilly temps we had at the sprinkle.

Everley rocked her little purple eyelet shift dress from Old Navy, with her white huarache flats from Target and an old blue hair bow in her hair. She later added her matching white cardigan and some white tights to the outfit due to weather.

Rohan wore a blue button-down slim-fit shirt from Old Navy, along with his roll-cuff chinos and his pinky beige espadrille shoes from ASOS.

PARTY DECOR DETAILS

Cake Our cake was from a local bakery known as Sweet Magnolia’s and it was absolutely delicious (we actually used them for Everley’s 2nd birthday cake as well… see that post here) and simply topped it with some shaved white chocolate, and put our cake topper on! We used an old cake stand from Target.

Balloons The balloon that reads “baby” we purchased here from Amazon and then we bought a nice big pack of 100 12″ pastel balloons (of which we used almost all of them), a 200 pack of 5″ pastel balloons of which we used about half of them. We used this balloon garland tape to create the two 12 foot balloon garlands. I have made balloon garlands before, but nothing this large, and it took four adults about 2.5 hours to do, including blowing up the balloons (as we didn’t have a pump)… but so worth it!

Invitations – Although we don’t have physical photos of our Sprinkle invites before we sent them off (after a serious case of Mama-brain), we loved how they turned out! We got them from Walmart online, they are super affordable and extremely adorable. You can personalize them online and have them shipped to you with envelopes and everything!

Food Supplies We decided to purchase a beverage dispenser to use for future hosting and events, and it worked perfectly for our water station. For the water, we froze some cucumbers in ice and used that as a subtle flavorsome way of making plain water cute. We just went to the Dollar Tree to get our serving plasticware plates and platters, cups, plates, cutlery, and napkins in a variety of pastel colors. Our floral straws we found at Hobby Lobby. We also found some cute gold balloon animals, which were great as decor, but also as weights for the lightweight napkins and plates, so they didn’t blow away (also from the Dollar Tree).

Furniture To save on renting or buying extra decor items (and as our house mainly consists of a lot of pastel themed decor), we decided to take down our pink medallion rug, coffee table and two shelving tables to use as our game station and food stations. We had existing items too, like photo frames, baskets, vases, faux flowers and pillows that we used to “pastel-ize” the party seating area. It came together so lovely and gave the party a nice comfortable and relaxed feel for all our guests.

Decor Items & Games See above for information on the games we played/displayed. We purchased the pegs for the Baby Peg Game from Target (similar here) in their dollar section and had leftover Wishes for Baby cards (similar here) that we purchased on Etsy from seller LaBoheme Paper Co. We used our letterboard to display the Guess LaLa’s Name Game and purchased various extras like pastel sharpies, newborn baby diapers for guests to write messages on and some decorative pink lollipops.

DIY Printables – We made our own little poems for each game and popped them in the little IKEA frames we had at home. See above for the poem’s we used. We also made our own little Guess LaLa’s Name cards for guests to write their guesses on.

We also just want to say a HUGE thank you
to everyone who came to our baby sprinkle
and celebrated LaLa with us.
It truly was a delight and honor to have
some close friends and family with us
as we get ready to welcome our new
baby girl into the world.
It was a lovely afternoon and
one we will never forget!
