A Sprinkle-Themed "Baby Sprinkle"

More and more, we're hearing about "baby sprinkles"--a popular new way to "sprinkle" a second or third child with a few gifts, and celebrate its upcoming arrival, without having the kind of full shower a first-time mother usually needs. It's especially fun to be able to include older siblings and turn the "baby sprinkle" into a kid-friendly party that also celebrates their new role as big brother or sister.

Hilary recently co-hosted a baby sprinkle that centered on the theme "Sprinkled with Love". Guests left their fingerprint signatures on the Bleu de Toi Sprinkles Cupcake design. More fingerprints will be added by grandparents, family and friends who come to visit the new baby girl!

Details also included a custom giant cupcake from Some Crust Bakery in Claremont, CA and confetti streamers which Hilary made from scrapbook paper and baker's twine (these streamers were later hung in baby Natalie's nursery.) 


For snacks, guests munched on confetti fruit salad, mini quiches, heart-shaped sandwiches, and a candy bar (especially fun for the kids). 

If you're interested in more ideas for a sprinkle shower, BDT's Pinterest page has a "Sprinkles" board full of fun concepts. Here's a sample of some favorites: candy kabobs, pom-pom balloons, and a cake with sprinkled polka dots.

In a variation on the "sprinkled" concept, you can also opt for an umbrella-themed sprinkle party. Check out our "Showered" Pinterest board for more on that theme, including hanging umbrellas, adorable cookies, and our BDT umbrella guestbook. The possibilities are endless!
