Sip and See Baby Shower: Decor

We’re continuing to celebrate mamas-to-be this month with our extensive baby shower planning guides. This week, we fete the mama and newborn who were not ready to be the centers of attention before the birth with a sip and see shower. Now that you've downloaded your free invites for the festivities, it's time to plan your décor. Given the fact that we are planning this shower as a co-ed open house, we used our invitation colors and event’s theme as inspiration for our decorations. We incorporated orange and robin’s egg blue, as well as a variety of cups, to communicate our theme and create a festive mood. For additional suggestions for setting a fun, gender-neutral setting,


Baby and sippy cups make great vessels for a variety of décor options for this event. Whether they are filled with flowers, strategically placed in potted plants or hung from banners, the cups will not only reinforce the theme of the shower, but will spark conversation among guests. We added a few silver baby cups to a homemade pennant banner, but if you are short on time, similar ones can be customized and purchased online.

The shower is many people’s first opportunity to meet the baby and congratulate the family in-person. By scattering photos of the guest of honor throughout the room, attendees can see the baby in his earliest moments and see how much he has grown since birth.
