What exactly is a Sip & See? While sill not as common as baby showers, this Southern tradition has become an increasingly popular celebration for new moms in the US. A Sip & See is an intimate gathering or open house, hosted by the new mom, to give family and friends the chance to meet or “see” their new baby. This type of party is also a great alternative to having another baby shower if this is the second or third child. Refreshments are usually light, and it’s fun to have a few drinks on hand for the “sip” part, of course.We’ve put together some guidelines and helpful tips for hosting the perfect ‘Sip & See’ party:
1. Plan & Invite
2. Food & Beverage
Don’t forget the ‘Sip’ with a DIY mimosa bar for guests to help themselves and make their own refreshment. Fill carafes with a variety of juices. Orange, grapefruit, pomegranate, peach and cranberry are great options to mix with a little bubbly! Feeling fancy? Add some fruit for garnishes and cute paper straws to complete the custom cocktails!
