Set visiting hours for your family’s new addition with sweet online sip and see invitations. “See” is the operative word in your party, and we’ll make it easy to give your guests a sneak peek—choose a photo invitation for your baby’s debut that puts an adorable snapshot of your newborn in the spotlight. Accompany your tot’s portrait with champagne flutes and baby bottles to give your guests (young and old) an idea of what they’ll be sipping while you nurse your mocktail of choice. For something a bit more baby-proof, find designs that feature nursery classics reimagined by independent stationers and illustrators—elephant baby shower invitations from Little Cube, story time favorites like Paddington Bear, and woodland baby shower invitations with special deliveries by Rifle Paper Co.’s Anna Bond. Speaking of baby-proofing, if you’ve also made a move, you’ll find sip and see housewarming invitations that celebrate the new arrival and their new bedroom. (You might want to try one of our free sip and see invitations if you’re still tied up in escrow.) You can also make a charming understatement with a typographic design or chic stripes from LA’s favorite stationer Sugar Paper. Find more easy planning tips and sip and see party ideas on our blog.
Even if the mood is low-key, you can still put a little polish on the details of your sip and see invitation. Use the online design tool to personalize the fonts and colors of your invitation and add a colorful backdrop to your online delivery. The sip and see invitation wording is crucial—you want to make sure people know to come over, but also know when to leave—and we give you a head start with a message that’s unmistakeable. Put together a list of everyone who wants to take a gander at your new baby in the online address book. You’ll find friends from your partying days, but you can also import contacts from your email accounts to make sure every friend and family member is represented. (One helpful tip: put together the list for this party and then save it for future kids’ birthday invitations. Two birds, one stone.) The party might be casual, but get an idea of who’ll be stopping by with online RSVP tracking. If you find yourself running low on party supplies, send a quick message to any guests who haven’t crossed the threshold yet.
The sip and see lets you show off your little one with a party after they’re born. A sip and see is also ideal for adoptions, early arrivals, or anyone who needs a little R&R after the baby comes. If an in-person event feels too much, for whatever reason, celebrate the new arrival (and the parents) with virtual sip and see invitations. Attach the couple’s registry link to the sip and see invite to ensure guests can shower the parents with much-needed support. If the couple doesn't have a registry, encourage attendees to gift essentials like meal delivery kits, gift cards, or extra cleaning supplies.
