BABY SHOWER SPRINKLES
growing trend is for parents to have a Baby "Sprinkle" (shower) which is
when they have their second and third children. The baby sprinkle is
more popular lately due to the economy where parents can recieve
essential gifts such as:
The baby sprinkle is also helpful when the second child is of the
opposite sex and the parents may want some
shower gifts that are different from the first, including clothing
(i.e., princess as opposed to cowboy), toys (doll instead of a
baby bedding (butterflies instead of sports).
Although historically baby showers were only for the first child, baby
sprinkles are absolutely accepted and growing in popularity. The major
differences may include the following:
only inviting the closest of friends - Baby sprinkle
parties are usually with family and immediate friends.
Party - The baby sprinkle is usually only for an hour or
two as opposed to an entire morning or afternoon.
- The sprinkle is usually in casual-ware and open door for those to
come when they can between a certain time.
Games - Usually
shower games are not played but they are fun and can be played
at any time if everyone is open. Usually baby shower prizes are not
given out at these sprinkle parties.e.. Co-Ed
Party - Many times the baby sprinkle will include both
husbands and wives.
food is usually only finger food and appetizers. Chips, salsa
and dip are a favorite as well as pigs in a blanket!
Theme - A cute idea is to use the sprinkle idea as a
theme and serve icecream with sprinkles. You can use sayings like
"sprinkle a lot of love" on messages at tha party as well as make
sprinkle decorations. Place sprinkles on the tables as confetti.
Giving To The Unfortunate - A great idea is to give to
your favorite charity and sprinkle some wealth to those who need
help! Make a fun party out of doing a great thing for the world! It
is nice for a group of people to go in on a larger ticket item like
a second car seat as the parents-to-be will appreciate it.
Just remember that a baby sprinkle can be
planned any way you want it since it is your party to enjoy. There is no
right and wrong baby sprinkle, only the one that works for you and your
family/friends. Thanks to baby shower visitor Linda B for this great
