"Sweet as Pie" Baby Sprinkle

Is there anything more fun than welcoming a new baby? And in our family, we have lots of babies on the way! Two weeks ago, we hosted a Little Man shower to celebrate the upcoming arrival for my sister's baby boy. And then last weekend, we opened our home for a little 'sprinkle' to honor my sister-in-law Jenn as she is expecting her second daughter.
 

 A sprinkle is a sweet way to celebrate a second or third baby. It is a smaller version of a 'shower'-- it's just a little 'sprinkle'! And this sprinkle was especially sweet because I co-hosted it with my creative sister-in-law Jessie. Jessie is a certified foodie--this girl can cook! And happily, she shares my love of Pinterest and party planning :)  Jessie was truly the hostess with the mostess for this event!


I embellished a simple Gerber onesie with silk flowers and lace, then added a handmade tutu for door decor. A white parasol and 'rain drops' hung just above the entry way.


The party theme came from these adorable party favors that Jessie baked. "This baby will be sweet as pie". Each mini-mason jar contained a delicious mixed berry pie.


 Pretty drinks...sparkling pink lemonade and pink champagne.



The menu consisted of Pizzettes with Caramelized Onions, Goat Cheese, and Prosciutto; Cucumber Cups with Roasted Red Pepper Hummus; and Pear & Brie Sandwiches with Walnuts and Arugula.


And lots of sweets too! Macaroons, powdered donuts with edible hydrangeas, and dark chocolate cupcakes. 


The centerpiece of the table was a beautiful 4-tiered pastel layered cake, baked by my talented mother-in-law Debbie. 


I hung the infamous 'coffee filter' wreath back up on the fireplace. Coordinating paper bunting and personalized onesies adorned the mantle.


 Jenn was so thrilled with the shower. And we are so excited to welcome another sweet girl to the family. Jessie-I loved hosting the sprinkle with you!!

-Special Thanks to "Hostess with the Mostess" , her "Spring Baby Shower" is full of fabulous ideas. 
-All the paper elements of this party are available at Paige's of Style on Etsy.
-The 'raindrop's are actually plastic Christmas ornaments! You can find similar ones here.
-When making the cake, don't forget to gently cut of the sides of the baked cake to reveal the color.

  7. This party is so involved, so how is this more of a sprinkle and not a shower? Looks like the full meal deal to me.

  12. My sister-in-law actually bought them. But check out these: http://www.amazon.com/Glass-Teardrop-Ornaments-Iridescent-ornaments/dp/B002NW013Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1359937905&sr=8-1&keywords=glass+teardrop+ornaments

    Basically you just need tear-drop glass ornaments!
