I am so excited to share this party with you! I absolutely fell in love with this new baby shower collection by Shindigz. Here in the South (I am in Tennessee), we love to celebrate a baby’s arrival in any way we can. A great alternative to throwing a baby shower is hosting a Sip and See for the mother and baby. All the guests really want to meet the baby, right? It’s a great option for second or third babies, where throwing a traditional baby shower isn’t considered in the best taste. When I saw this new Bonjour Baby collection, I knew it would be the perfect theme for a Sip and See! How perfect to say "hello" to a new baby with a bit of Parisian style! And here’s the best part—you can get ALL of this stuff at Shindigz.com!
I started my table design with a simple white tablecloth. To dress it up, I used two of the black tulle table skirts around the perimeter of the table. If you don’t want black, these come in white and pink too!
For the top of the table, I personalized a rectangle Table Top It. You can add pictures, text, and photos! I added the baby’s name, Eloise, to mine.
Did you know you can order chair covers from Shindigz? These are simple plastic folding chairs that I use for overflow seating at holidays. I covered them with these white stretch fabric chair covers. I tied them each with a Black Satin Chair Sash, which really dressed them up for the shower!
Each place setting featured a simple gold charger, topped with this beautiful personalized plate. I added a sweet newborn photo to the plates. What a wonderful keepsake for the mother and child! This plate comes in 4 different designs for you to choose from. Underneath the charger, I placed a pink polyester napkin for each guest. For our flatware, I chose gold glittered cutlery. I love the idea of bringing in the gold from the design of the plates. I also personalized a custom Bonjour Baby menu for the shower, which was laid at each place setting.
Each place setting also featured a miniature Eiffel tower place card holder. I designed my own place cards in Photoshop to match the collection. And every baby shower needs a toast right? I chose these stemless Serenity flutes to toast baby Eloise.
One of my favorite touches is these personalized wine bottle labels. I applied them to a couple of bottles of Rose (because it’s pink!) but they will stick to any bottle of your choice. To top off the wine bottles, I used these personalized bottle stoppers; another great keepsake for mother and baby!
Down the center of the table, I used two different sizes of Eiffel Tower candle holders. The taller ones are open on top, so I put a silk flower in the tops of those. For my centerpiece, I used a white cake stand from my collection, topped with French macarons. In case the guests wanted to take home the macarons for later, I provided these adorable Eiffel Tower favor boxes.
And of course, you can’t have a Paris themed party without an Eiffel Tower! I love this pink Eiffel Tower! What a perfect addition to the party! And best of all, my son’s classroom is going to use it for their "Holidays Around the World" party in a few weeks!
