A Sip and See

We welcomed Baby Dylan into this world yesterday with a Sip and See.

I am a little disappointed in the photos I have to share. I am not sure what happened to my photo taking skills but they took a nap yesterday!

 The theme for the Sip and See was birds.  I love spring time and love that life feels new during spring. And how appropriate is that for a celebration of a new life?

I once again used Decorable Designs for the invitations. This time I asked Aubrey to make me a custom design. She was so fast and quick. Within a day of me providing her ideas of what I wanted, she had me samples and options. I have blurred out the private information but I hope you can get a sense of how super cute her work is. If you need party invitations and want something special, I highly recommend Aubrey at Decorable Designs!!

 I handmade felt cupcake toppers for the event. Click  Here if you are interested in seeing the post about them. They looked so good on top of the yellow tropical fruit cupcakes! The great news is that Dylan's Mom is going to upcycle them into a cute mobile for Dylan's bedroom!

I also made bird nest candies for the shower. These were a hit! Dylan's Daddy loved them! Other than they were a little messy they were super easy to make. Three ingredients: chow mein noodles, almond bark, and Mini Cadburry Eggs.

I also purchased some some sugar cookies from my favorite bakery Boulevard Bakery and Pastries.

Drinks are very important at a Sip and See. During The Oscars we made virgin Blue Hawaiians and we joked about how yummy they were but how good they would be with a shot of Malibu Rum in them.  So, we served Blue Hawaiian's (both with and without alcohol).  We also served tea (with sugar and without). We served them in half pint mason jars (and I can not believe I forgot to take a photo of a single drink). We had use of a super cute drink bucket that we served the mason jar drinks out of.

 In addition to the Blue Hawaiian's and tea we served milk and water.
We wrapped the bottles with green gingham material and a pink safety pin.

Food is also important at a party. Dylan's Aunt got supplies to make chicken salad sandwiches on pretzel rolls. We had two kinds of chicken salad. Dylan's Mommy is a Costco fanatic, so we purchased two types of chicken salad from there and I think both of them were yummy and well received by our guest.

We also had a Welcome Wagon to house any possible gifts that were brought for Baby Dylan.  The Welcome Wagon was an old Red Ryder wagon that had this cute sign on it. I made the sign out of cardstock and once again used my Cricut.

Overall, it was a great day!
 In the end, Baby Dylan was the star of this show! A sweet baby girl who already has our hearts in her her hand. Welcome Baby Girl!
