It's crazy that it's suddenly Tuesday night! I started writing this post Saturday night, got distracted, and suddenly was too busy until this moment to finish it off!
However, I can't really complain. This weekend was great, and we had best day with a bunch of my favourite people on Saturday, celebrating my besties new baby girl Adeline. She is the sweetest little thing, and I was so so happy to be able to host her Sip & See while the two of them were in town.
We decided on a Sip & See because my friend Nicole (Adeline's Mom) moved to Ontario last year, and lugging a bunch of stuff back from a trip wouldn't have been ideal. We had sent her a big care package full of new baby goodies before A's birth, so we thought this would be the perfect way to party and socialize with our new mini crew member.
My friend Sam pulled a major hero move and we worked the morning away on this amazing balloon arch, but she really was the brains behind the operation. We wanted to do something cute and fun but not too difficult to clean up later and would stay up if it was windy or hot (however the balloons did start to pop from over heating - it was insanely hot outside!)
We decided to cook burger sliders as the main food because they were simple and delicious but wouldn't have you feeling overly full throughout the afternoon. Honestly I love sliders, and usually end up eating way to many, and try to play it off like it doesn't count because they're so little so this plan didn't really work for me. Spoiler alert, they all count. But I'm going to take some logic from my favourite chick flick "How to be Single" - and that seven mini meats equal one big meat, so I can for sure have 7 sliders, right? RIGHT?!
My friend Lindsay (who has started an awesome local business called Modern Mommy on Instagram - if you're looking for super cute custom items or pre made baby, home, wedding, style, and more for sure check her out!) made this adorable sign for her own Mother's Day celebration - and was kind enough to let us use it for the shower! It tied our "Momosa Bar" together perfectly.
So we popped the bubbly, had tons of snacks, and all sat around getting to know our new girl gang member! Hosting a Sip & See after the baby is born is a really great way to get to know the baby without having to worry about getting the new mom a gift (or another gift if she's already had a shower before the baby was born). Because trust me, SHE WILL GET A LOT OF GIFTS AND ONESIES. NO MORE ONESIES....even if they're super adorable. Okay...fine buy the onesie. If you feel like you should bring something, bring another bottle of champs! Because realistically...that's what she needs!
