"Etiquette rules, which are well established for baby showers, seem to be still in the making on the “Sip and See."
Fort Lee, NJ (PRWEB) February 17, 2013
In its latest blog article titled “Sip-and-See: The New Alternative to Traditional Baby Showers?” RealMomsRealReviews.com, takes a look at the latest trend among expectant moms who are swapping the traditional baby shower for something new – the “Sip and See,” a post-birth party held in the baby’s first month of life. The “sip and see” allows guests to “sip” tea, coffee, soda, Mimosas – whatever beverage of choice is offered, and “see” the baby, whose arrival has family and friends excited for months.
The “Sip and See” is gaining popularity because friends and family want to see the baby, and it’s challenging to have people coming and going with a newborn in the house. Some visitors are more likely to travel a long distance if they’re going to get to see the baby for their trouble. It’s also a great option for second and third time moms who don’t need a shower, but want to show off their infant.
RealMomsRealReviews.com guest blogger Liz Ernst says that the “Sip and See” is a clever alternative to the baby shower.
“Some moms-to-be would probably prefer to wait for the “Sip and See” than drag herself and her swollen eight-months-pregnant feet to a baby shower at a time when she’d rather be sleeping in an air-conditioned cave close to a bathroom and ice cream supply,” Ernst says.
Greeting card companies offer some adorable “Sip and See” invitations for party planners, some of which double as birth announcements.
Ernst says that etiquette rules, which are well established for baby showers, seem to be still in the making on the “Sip and See.”
“The mother-to-be is never the hostess of her own baby shower,” Ernst says. “Those are thrown for Mom by a friend or relative; however the “Sip and See” seems to be something the new parents are expected to organize and pay for, which may not appeal to new parents who have their hands full and enough expenses as it is.
“Catering companies in particular are soliciting parents-to-be with “Sip and See” menus and themes.”
There is also the question of how many people the new parents want breathing on their precious newborn in one afternoon, according to Ernst.
