How to Throw a Sprinkles Baby Shower

A sprinkle is a small scale baby shower in which guests "sprinkle" the new mom with the little necessities she needs for the new bundle of joy. It is typically not a full-blown "shower", but just a light sprinkling of gifts.

Garnish with Sprinkles

Rimming the glasses with sprinkles adds a decorative touch. Before pouring the beverage, paint the rim of the glass with corn syrup. Fill a saucer or bowl with sprinkles and holding the glass parallel to the work surface, dip the rim into the sprinkles. Tip: Test your sprinkles to be sure they don't stain your guests' mouths. If the colors run, be sure to serve the drinks with cute straws.

Signature Mocktail + Cocktail

One way to add a special touch to any occasion is to create signature beverages. Since it is baby shower, be sure to offer a non-alcoholic version for the mommy-to-be. Cherry lemonade (spiked or not) is the perfect pink drink for this theme. Click here to download the drink tags.

Game Time

What would a baby shower/sprinkle be without a little fun? This simple game challenges the guests to come up with as many words as they can using the letters in the words “Sprinkled with Love”.

Sprinkles in a Jar
