Sip & See

It all started with my friend Whitney from Whitney Hartmann Photography who was looking to photograph a baby shower.  I didn’t have a baby shower planned but I wanted to help her out so I offered to create a mock baby shower.  She asked me why I didn’t just plan a real baby shower for myself.  I said I didn’t feel it was appropriate for me to invite people to a baby shower – basically saying, I’m having a baby, buy me a gift (…please).  So as we continued to talk about the photoshoot, she had a brilliant idea.  “Why not have a Sip & See?  That’s a REAL event and parents throw the party.”  I was confused and had no idea what this was.  She explained that it was a Meet & Greet.  People want to meet the baby and parents do this to show off their baby.  WHAT A FANTASTIC IDEA!  So, now I’m planning a Sip & See and I have my inspiration board put together.  Of course, we’re so far out (4 months) so I’m sure my ideas will change but at least I have a starting point.  Inspiration boards are allowed to change.  🙂

Inspiration Board for Sip & See

I know where I want to rent/buy all of the items for the Meet & Greet.  Who better to get the items from than my trusted vendors?!  So, be on the lookout for some orders Petite Reve Chocolates/Petite Reve Cafe, Dream Maker Floral, Ventura Rental Party Center, La Tavola Linens, Tiny Prints, and some of my favorite shops on Etsy.  Super excited!!!
