Baby Shower

Megan & Tate

This weekend, I had the privilege of hosting a  Sip & See with some friends for Megan and her new son, Tate. I had never heard of a Sip & See before, but I’ve been told it’s a Southern tradition. Basically, it’s like a shower, but instead of having it before the baby arrives, you host it after the baby is here.  Just by looking at the picture above, I think you can guess the advantages to having the baby there.  

When coming up with the shower’s theme, we drew inspiration from the Tate’s nursery and Megan’s interests. We split up the tasks, and as you might guess, I was in charge of food.  

Here’s the menu:

Our friend Mara was responsible for drinks. She made pink lemonade and a delicious sangria.

Mikayla put together these “T” sugar cookies as favors, and Katie handled decorations. Her use of colors and origami cranes were nods to the nursery.The results were quite pretty.

We also created an album at the shower with Polaroids from the event, as Megan enjoys photography. Her daughter Lucy is writing a message to Tate below.

*The rosemary ham is available at Whole Foods and Dean & Deluca.

**I used Humboldt Fog, also available at Whole Foods and Dean & Deluca.
