Sprinkling Annie

After having a baby shower, among our group of friends (and I know we’re not alone), we started doing this thing where we throw an event for having a baby, every baby. Since it’s not really a shower because they’ve already had their first shower, with their first baby, we call it a ‘Sprinkle.’ The mom-to-be (again) already has the big items they need, so mostly this consists of buying a cute new outfit for the baby, and getting together to celebrate (and eat)! It’s especially nice, as in this case when the first baby was a boy, and now Annie is having a girl. So getting some pink into the wardrobe is fun!

Here is a picture of the handsome big brother.

The theme of the shower was strawberries. They are fresh and sweet (like babies) and perfect for outdoor gatherings this time of year. Such a nice punch of color against the greenery! My mother made the centerpieces, strawberry plants, also doubling as door prizes.

We ate brunch style foods, pancakes with homemade strawberry syrup, sausages, danishes, muffies (aka muffin tops), and cheesy egg and sausage casseroles (so good)!

We dubbed the parting gifts after the baby girl (to-be), Hannah’s Strawberry Syrup (the same syrup the guests enjoyed at the party).

Of course the cake had to be strawberry too! And had to be washed down with strawberry lemonade, naturally.

We also featured a smoothie bar (including but not limited to Hannah-Banana smoothies) and iced coffee drinks.
