{My Parties} Bonjour Bebe Sip and See

Post contains affiliate links

Who's ready for a baby shower with a French twist? Get it? 
I am so excited to share this party with you! . Here in the South (I am in Tennessee), we love to celebrate a baby’s arrival in any way we can. A great alternative to throwing a baby shower is hosting a Sip and See for the mother and baby. All the guests really want to meet the baby, right? It’s a great option for second or third babies, where throwing a traditional baby shower isn’t considered in the best taste. When I saw this new Bonjour Baby collection from Shindigz.com, I knew it would be the perfect theme for a Sip and See! How perfect to say “hello” to a new baby with a bit of Parisian style!

I love the tradition of a Sip and See. I mean, all your guests really just want to see the baby right? And instead of having 25 people come over at all different times, it's sometimes more fun to celebrate the baby AFTER he or she arrives, so that your friends and family can pass the baby around!
I combined the Sip and See party with a classic Paris party theme to create this dreamy Bonjour Bebe theme. 

I started my table design with a simple white tablecloth. To dress it up, I used two of the black tulle table skirts around the perimeter of the table. . These are simple plastic folding chairs that I use for overflow seating at holidays. I covered them with these white stretch fabric chair covers. I tied them each with a black satin chair sash, which really dressed them up for the shower!

Each place setting featured a simple gold charger, topped with this beautiful personalized plate. I added a sweet newborn photo to the plates. What a wonderful keepsake for the mother and child! . Underneath the charger, I placed a pink polyester napkin for each guest.  For our flatware, I chose gold glittered cutlery. I love the idea of bringing in the gold from the design of the plates.  I also personalized a custom Bonjour Baby menu for the shower, which was laid at each place setting.

Each place setting also featured a miniature Eiffel tower place card holder. I designed my own place cards in Photoshop to match the collection. And every baby shower needs a toast right? I chose these stemless Serenity flutes to toast baby Eloise. One of my favorite touches is these personalized wine bottle labels.  I applied them to a couple of bottles of Rose (because it’s pink!) but they will stick to any bottle of your choice. To top off the wine bottles, I used these personalized bottle stoppers; another great keepsake for mother and baby!

Down the center of the table, I used two different sizes of Eiffel Tower candle holders. The taller ones are open on top, so I put a silk flower in the tops of those. For my centerpiece, I used a white cake stand from my collection, topped with French macarons. In case the guests wanted to take home the macarons for later, I provided these adorable Eiffel Tower favor boxes.

And of course, you can’t have a Paris themed party without an Eiffel Tower! I love this pink Eiffel Tower! What a perfect addition to the party!
Au Revoir!
