Donuts & Diapers {Baby Sprinkle}

Over the weekend, I hosted a super sweet baby sprinkle for my friend Allison! What’s a baby sprinkle you ask? It’s not a SHOWER but a SPRINKLE because it’s for baby #2 (or #3 or #4)… a way to love on mama and help with small gifts like diapers or gift cards, but generally is without all the games and tiny shoes.

A sample invite from Evite.

I used this text as part of the invitation:

Big brother James has plenty to share, 
it's just a sprinkle to show that we care!!
Not much is needed, just the basics will do,
like diapers, wipes, Amazon cards, and an outfit or two!

The menu included:

  • DONUTS of course
  • Mini quiche
  • Yogurt and homemade granola
  • Fruit
  • Sausage balls
  • Coffee, juice, and baby champagne bottles
  • Dipped pretzels and marshmallows to add some extra SPRINKLES!

And like I said, no games, but still a chance to leave a sweet note for the family in this book, If You Give a Dog a Donut. This is one of my favorite things to do at any baby shower. At the woodland themed shower we had for another friend, the book was Brown Bear, Brown Bear. Trust me, if you have a theme, there is a baby book that relates to it.

So tell me – have you heard of a baby sprinkle before? Any other favorite themes? I loved this one!
