Every baby deserves to be celebrated, no matter the scale. If the parents-to-be don't want the fuss of a baby shower, throw a sprinkle but make it modern. What to expect when you’re expecting to host a sprinkle baby shower. Honor new (again) parents with an off-duty afternoon. Keep things casual for the coolest couple you know by hosting at their favorite bar. Set a cool, casual vibe by limiting your color palette to black, white, and graphic neutrals. Or charm your guests with a woodland theme inspired by wild animals and wildflowers. Top a cupcakes with meringue mushrooms, and limit your animal kingdom decor to fawns, swans, and rabbits. Dress the table for the day with a garland.
Keep the sprinkle simple. Celebrate new (again) parents with a fresh theme like “stock the library.” Gift something adorable like a smock or adorable oversized bunny. For decor, go understated but decidedly grown-up with fresh flowers and lunch. Think minimalist boho theme, featuring florals and pampas grass with a sage and cream/beige color scheme. Or lean into cozy (and chaotic) vibes with brunch at home (invite guests' kids if you want unpredictable guests of honor). Bring Mom something useful or indulgent, or offer to babysit while she gets pampered. Think of it as a chic pajama party. Explore more tips like coed baby shower ideas on our blog.
