sip and see ideas

so, you're watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta and phaedra announces she's hosting a "sip and see" and you're like sheree' and many of the viewers thinking... 'surely, she's made this up!' well, actually - she didn't.

a "sip and see" is a baby shower alternative... it's hosted typically about 4-6 weeks after the baby is born. it's generally an "open house" format, so there's no games as you'd find with the traditional baby shower - (which makes it more "man friendly"). since it's the alternative to a baby shower, the focus shifts from gifts to the baby. there's usually food, beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), favors and of course - the baby! the favors come in handy as some guests may bring a gift for baby, mommy, daddy or the family (though gifts are not to be expected). additionally, a sip and see is a great way to introduce your newest addition if it's the second child or beyond.

so if you're thinking about hosting a sip and see, give us a ring, and we'll be happy to help you!

p.s. be sure to have plenty of hand sanitizer available. while phaedra didn't allow people to hold ayden if you're gonna pass your baby around, you'll want to kill some germs first!
