milkaholic sip & see baby shower

This weekend's winning party feature goes to this super adorable MILKAHOLIC SIP AND SEE BABY SHOWER submitted by Half Baked. What a clever idea! Carrie said that a 'Milkaholic' baby shower seemed fitting considering how much time a newborn spends eating! So true! I just love it. 

Carrie- "I designed the invitation and let it set the tone for the party decor. Sleek and modern yet baby themed was the intent. The Milkaholic baby bottle became a logo that was used throughout the party. With this being a co-ed event, we wanted to keep the decor more modern and less traditional "baby". To create a unique backdrop for the dessert table, I painted a canvas to match the party invite. Black and white patterned bunting was hung along the wall above the painting. Mini bottles were filled with milk and given sleek milk labels."

You did such a good job, Carrie! Thanks for your submission! Congratulations on being chosen as a winning party feature!

"Activities for a co-ed baby event can be tricky.   Not wanting the male guests to feel awkward, I opted for non-organized activities that would still be fun and entertaining.  Guests were encouraged to write humorous thoughts onto diapers to provide Ted and Meredith a little chuckle later on.  TheDiaper Thoughts station gave the men an avenue to showcase their best and most clever diaper humor!  A Well  Wishes station encouraged guests to write something sentimental on keepsake cards which were then placed into a glass bubble bowl. Of course, the main activity was oohing and awing over the guest of honor, Baby Colin!"

"Guests were given a small box filled with ‘Kisses from Colin’. Hershey Kisses with patterned labels inside a white box wrapped with coordinating paper and tags."

Love this sip and see shower! I can't decide what I like best, the colors, the theme, the desserts, everything is perfect! I also like the diaper station where guests leave funny notes on the diaper, what a great idea.
