Picking a co-ed baby shower theme can be tricky. Let’s face it….most husbands just aren’t that into fluffy teddy bears and pastel colors. Carrie Sellman from Half Baked came up with a “MILKaholic” Sip & See Baby Shower in honor of a friend’s newly adopted son and it’s an amazing party theme! Sip & See’s have grown in popularity in the last few years because they create a relaxed environment for showing off a new arrival! And, as Carrie says, “‘Milkaholic’ just seemed fitting for a Sip & See considering how much time a newborn spends eating!” Carrie picked a bold black and white color palette with pops of turquoise. She included baby bottles, milk and cow print. Yes, cow print! Carrie says that she was “slightly nervous about the cow print but it stepped up nicely into this mature and modern role”. I love the super modern looking result!
The invitations set the tone for the party. They managed to combine sleek and modern with a baby theme.
I just love that sign that Carrie made for the wall!
Cake, cheesecake, cookies, milk shots and more! Yum!
Guests were given a small box filled with ‘Kisses from Colin’
Great party, Carrie!
