Throwing a Sprinkle Baby Shower? Don’t want to throw a traditional baby shower? Sprinkle the new mom with love and gifts. A sprinkle baby shower is a fun alternative when you don’t want to go all out and throw a big shower. We recently planned a sprinkle party for friends and used ice cream sprinkles as the theme. I created cards that had wishes for the new baby. To go with the theme they said, “sprinkled with…” they included a scripture on them and encouraging words too.
What is a Sprinkle Baby Shower?
Baby showers are such a great way to honor and support your expectant friends or family. But what do we do when your friend has already had a baby shower? Is there some rule out there that you only get a baby shower when you have your first child? Let’s celebrate every baby! Our dear friends were both expecting their second (and third) children so we decided to throw them a Sprinkle baby shower.
How to plan a “Sprinkle”
I went to Pinterest and found the perfect ideas for our party. I went with a Sprinkle Theme baby shower party. Instead of the more traditional “raindrops” themed Sprinkle party, I went with colorful candy sprinkles to keep things cheerful and happy. (Rain showers seem a bit sad to me).
Sprinkle Party Ideas
Sprinkled with Love Printables
I found a really sweet pin on Pinterest about a baby shower posted at Keys to Inspiration. They created special cards for the tables that I fell in love with. Each card had a bible verse on it. It was such a cute way for us to shower the babies and mommies in prayer through bible verses. It pulled together the sprinkle theme by allowing us to Sprinkle the mommas and babies with love. They did not provide any printable Tent cards for a Sprinkle Party so I created my own to share with you! (Free Printables at the bottom!)
Sprinkle Baby Shower Decorations
I used a white table cloth and create a runner out of a store-bought plastic tablecloth that matched the theme. If I had more time I would have cut out large confetti from sheets of tissue paper with a 1″ circle punch and sprinkled those over the table.
Sprinkle Baby Shower Banner
I also created a banner using sparkly sticker letters and cheap copy paper. I have to admit that doing things simply was hard for my perfectionist-self. I so badly wanted to make a beautiful banner with ribbons and fancy paper but I had to keep things simple.
We had such a lovely night, I don’t know what I would do without these girls in my life and we can’t wait to meet these 2 new babies! (that will make a total of 16 kids between us!)
