What’s a Sip & See? The latest in baby shower ideas!

What’s a Sip & See, you ask? It’s a party that the new parents host after the baby is born to introduce him or her to all their friends. Unlike a traditional baby shower, gifts and games are not the main attraction at a Sip & See — instead, it’s all about the baby!

Advantages to a Sip & See
The biggest advantage to a Sip & See is that everyone gets to meet the new baby. But there are plenty of other reasons that you, as new parents, might find this an attractive baby shower idea. At a Sip & See, you get to make all the decisions. You can decide what to serve, whom to invite, when to have it, and whether or not there will be any embarrassing shower games. And you can avoid the awkward, one-by-one opening of gifts that can so easily drag down a baby shower.

Staff Picks for Valentine’s Day Cards

We asked our team members to tell us which Valentine’s Day card ideas they chose for themselves and their kids. Here are their picks.

Amy
Staff Picks for Valentine's Day Cards #valentinesdaycardideas #valentinesdayideas #peartreegreetings
“These mini photo strips are so clever and great for handing out to kids. I picked out the Photo Paper Pink & Gold classroom cards for my boyfriend, who is a Phy Ed Teacher in an elementary school. The kids all love seeing pictures of our two growing puppies, Sadie and Pyxi. This photo strip is the perfect way to wish the students a Happy Valentine’s Day.”

Three Awesome Kids Christmas Party Ideas

Looking for kids Christmas party ideas that don’t involve Santa or gifts? Here are three party ideas that will keep little hands busy.

Cookie baking or decorating party
Three Awesome Kids Christmas Party Ideas

Christmas baking is a lot more fun when you have a lot of hands helping. Why not invite your kids’ friends over for a party to help? They can help decorate gingerbread houses or cut-out cookies that you bake ahead of time, such as gingerbread or sugar cookie cut-outs. Or you can have a cookie baking party and let the kids help you make any kind of cookies you like!

Our Gleeful Gingerbread Kids Christmas Party Invitations or our Gingerbread Lane Kids Christmas Party Invitations are the perfect choice for this Christmas party idea!

Before the party begins, have all of your ingredients whether for baking or decorating ready to go, and set up several stations with supplies so the kids each have a place to work. Things may get messy when the kids dig in to help, but that’s half the fun. And, of course, each guest gets to take home a sampling of cookies.
