A few weeks ago I got to celebrate one of my best friends second baby to be, so we threw her a baby sprinkle! A "sprinkle" is a mini-version of a baby shower, that is generally thrown for a mommy-to-be who is having her second or third baby.
Dayna and I have been friends for about 10 years, and we have been through a lot together, but the most exciting has certainly been expecting our babies together! Dayna has a 1.5 year old daughter Luella, whom we just adore, and she is expecting a son in August!
Dayna and I have something else in common, other than being pregnant together...We both love ice cream! I knew for her sprinkle that I had to do an ice cream bar!
We set the sprinkle from 2-5 pm on Sunday, so a dessert bar was perfect for that time of day!
We made lemon water and lemonade for drinks, Skinny Pop for a snack, and made a few homemade treats, such as peanut butter bars, chocolate covered oreos and pretzels, and rice crispy treats, (which are a few of Dayna's favorite treats). The rest of the food was store bought ice cream (which we pre-scooped), and ice cream toppings! This made for a very easy party prep!
We got a few little details from Target to make the party extra cute!
For games, we did Who Knows Mom Best, Baby Jeopardy, and Baby Scategories. We found these ideas on Pintrest, and created the game boards, which were really simple to make. The gifts were fun and easy to put together, (we got a cute journal and pens from Homegoods, and a paired them with a copy of my devotional), which all the girls loved!
After games Dayna opened gifts, and we spent some time chatting about babies! ;)
Dayna also surprised me with a little gift for my birthday, which was too cute not to share! Every year she gets me something sweet from Mud Pie, a company that makes really cute dishes, perfect for Dashing Dish! This year was Maddie themed, as she will surely be my side kick in the kitchen! ;)
It was such a fun time celebrating this momma-to-be!
As you can see, throwing a baby sprinkle, (or shower) can be really simple and fun! For food, all you need is some store bought ice cream and toppings, and if you add a few details from Target, buy some inexpensive gifts from Homegoods, and make your own games, you can make any mommy feel incredibly special! xo Katie
