Sip & See Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions

We love the southern tradition of a Sip ‘N See.  For anyone who has never heard of it, you can equate it to a baby shower but it is given after the baby is born. Sarah Crawford from Lil’ Hoot Parties created this Sip ‘N See party for her niece June, who was born in July (and celebrated in August.)  After two nephews, June was “A Welcome Change” and everyone was excited to meet her and celebrate her arrival. The color palette was soft and feminine, yet summery and vibrant. The “welcome” theme was used creatively throughout the party.  From “A Welcome Change” banner, to the “Welcome Wagon” for the gifts and, finally, the Pineapple which has been a symbol for hospitality throughout the ages (how fantastic is the pineapple ice cube?) Sweet treats included dark chocolate covered pineapple, angel food cupcakes, mini chocolate cupcakes and pineapple shaped sugar cookies.  Rose sangria and pink lemonade were served at the bar along with frozen June Bugs.  Finally, being that the party was held in the hot month of August, Sarah had fans created for the guests that said “Stay Cool”.  Have you ever attended a Sip ‘n See?  If so, please feel free to share your experience.  Scroll down for the vendors.

  • Such sweet colors and such a welcoming feel to this party! Perfect!

  • I seriously think I’m a displaced southerner or something! I love all the little get togethers down there and I’m up here in the PNW, where people seem annoyed by just having a shower. Can’t imagine their reaction if I invited them to a “sip & see”!
