Have you ever heard of a baby sprinkle? Instead of a big rain shower, it’s just a light sprinkle! Get it? I love the idea of celebrating every baby, but let’s face it you don’t necessarily need all the baby stuff again. So, a little sprinkle is perfect. (Here are 21 more baby sprinkle ideas.) My friend, Annie, who helped throw me this modern twinkle, twinkle little star baby shower is having her second kiddo this summer and she only needed a light sprinkle!
My one big baby sprinkle craft were these do-nut balloons inspired by, DIY Studio. In theory, these are so simple. All you need is:
- Do-nut balloons
- Washi tape in a couple of colors (Purple, turquoise, yellow, and pink)
- Acrylic paint
- Paint brush
Here’s the deal: I bought my donut shaped balloons from Amazon and had them filled with helium on Friday afternoon for their Saturday morning debut. On Saturday morning my donuts were dangling. Sad story. I ended up rigging them with fishing line and my favorite Command Party Hooks to make them appear perky on the table.
Making them is really simple, after they are filled with helium hold them down with your feet and paint a large ring of color. Let it dry and then attach pieces of washi tape to your balloon. Voila!
I filled 2 glass vases with leftover pretty, packing supplies and tied a rock to the bottom of the balloon to make it stay.
The menu was super simple too. I’m no chef and neither was my wonderful co-host, Vanessa so we opted to buy the goods! I got a tray chicken croissant sandwiches from my HEB. We did the same thing for Maxwell’s 1st birthday. Yummy and easy as pie. We got a veggie tray, and 3 different kinds of chips that were “sprinkled” with flavor. Ok fine, they came in bags and I just dumped them in cute glass vases. I used this awesome new chalkboard tape
The trick is to serve the food on pretty trays, ha! Don’t serve it on the plastic black ones everything comes on, then your secret is out! I like to pretend I cook for as along as possible. (I crock pot, that counts, right?!)
We also had sprinkled do-nuts and sprinkled cupcakes. Cute, yummy, and simple!
And I couldn’t help myself with Annie’s gift, I wrapped it in a good ol’ brown paper bag and doodled on a few donuts! (Brown bag gift wrap and doodle tutorial here.)
For the favors, I made up a super cheesy saying for the favors. Shocker! Y’all know I love a good cheesy saying. “You butter believe we are excited about Baby McBroom!” And I paired it with these fun bars of Shea Yeleen shea butter soap. They smell amazing and they are great for babies since the ingredients are all natural.
For the guest book, Vanessa’s sweet neighbor crafted up this giant water colored donut… kind of amazing don’t you think! And then we had guests use their pinky print to make a sprinkle!
