Simple Chic Sip & See Party Themes

Hosting a Sip & See party and trying to think of an exciting, chic theme for it? No worries... we've got you covered! Here are a couple unique baby shower ideas that will make any Sip & See a chic and stylish affair for a new mom and her friends.

Storybook Party

Some of the best childhood memories include story time at night. This Sip & See is themed around baby's future library. Request that every guest bring a book instead of a traditional card to help build up the baby's bookshelf. Guests can write their well wishes for mom and baby inside each book, making them a fun keepsake and something the whole family will treasure for years to come.

Guests want to know that the gifts they bring will be useful and books are sure to play a big role in the child's early years. As the host, keep a list of the books people are intending to bring to ensure the new mom doesn't end up with five copies of whatever happens to be on the NY Times Children's Picture Books Best Sellers List.

Table décor can be centered around different children's stories such as Goldie Locks and the Three Bears, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Goodnight Moon, or any of your old favorites! The actual book can serve as the centerpiece with stuffed animals that represent characters in the story used as decorations. For the gift table, set up some cloth wrapped boxes for the books and make sure to leave empty space on the table for more traditional gifts.

Mocktail Party

Let the new mom relax with her girlfriends at a mocktail themed party. If mom is breastfeeding she shouldn't enjoy a real cocktail, but there are plenty of great recipes to imitate every girl's favorite party drink.

A Sip & See is a time for the new mom to kick back with her friends, chitchat about mommy things, and show off her little masterpiece. Why not remind mom that even though her life has changed for the better, she can still enjoy that much needed girl time like she used to.

Set up a mocktail bar next to the food station. Place pitchers, decanters, and large glass drink dispensers on the bar and fill them with pre-mixed mocktails that your guests can try. This self-serve bar will be a fun conversational piece that will act as the center of the activity!

As for the table décor, place bar style chalkboards in the center with numbers or names of cocktails to differentiate between the tables. Make sure you have bar snacks readily available on each table for the guests to snack on. You may even want to get personalized bar napkins made for the event!

Don't forget to include personalized drink stirrers with baby's initials on one side and a line for each guest to write their name on the other. This way, nobody will accidentally drink someone else's mocktail. Consider even giving away personalized martini glasses as party favors!

These chic Sip & See themes are fun, easy, and will make your event one that is talked about and imitated for years to come!
