mobile Cocooners: An Intimate Baby Sprinkle

An Intimate Baby Sprinkle

Tuesday, November 15, 2016
This past Saturday, a couple of besties got together and hosted an intimate, sweet "Sprinkle" to celebrate Briggs' impending arrival.  For those of you not familiar with what a Sprinkle is, I'll clear it up.  Instead of "showering" the mother with gifts, as in a baby shower, you "sprinkle" her with just a few necessities.  As the name suggests, a sprinkle is a light shower.  If the child is a second or third child, mothers typically already have most of the supplies needed to care for baby Here is more info from Parenting.com

I personally believe every baby should be celebrated and that's usually the "etiquette" here in the South!  And I had Dax over four years ago so I've given away some things as well.  And people love to give baby gifts.  We still have pretty much all the big items and anything we don't, we are purchasing ourselves.  It sure is nice to be able to register and get the completion discount for the bigger items!  Just for funsies, here's a link to my post for my baby shower for Dax.  It was just as a first baby shower should be - fairly grand with lots of friends and family and so fun. 


Now, onto the eye candy.  Thank you to Joy (of Basically Joy) and Kelly (known her since 7th grade!) - you guys are so sweet to do this for us!  I love parties, big or small, so capturing these moments is always special.  The food was amazing and also probably my favorite part of the afternoon (besides the awesome hospitality)!  






There were also a few games and prizes, which everyone seemed to enjoy - aside from the baby name game "Around the World".  Unless you have a party filled with super smart world travelers, you will get booed with this one, ha!








It is so difficult to get good pictures of someone opening gifts.  This is no exception.  I look funny but the outfit is so cute I had to post it!





This cake though!  Although I think they are gorgeous to look at, I never thought I liked naked cakes because I love frosting and why would anyone skimp on frosting?  However, I am a changed woman.  I requested a chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and girlfriend anteed up with the frosting so this was a win and so delicious.  I also may be a bit high maintenance but that's why it's great to have friends who love you anyway and get you.  You girls just get me!




Aren't these favors the cutest!!  Below are some shots of friends and family including the fist picture with my hostesses.  We're silly!   


BTDubs - my dress is from Old Navy and the cardi is old (from Piperlime).  I've had the cardigan for years and this is my first time wearing it.  I love it and here is a similar option.  Old Navy has a good maxi option available now.





Love to you all and thanks again for such a special afternoon. 

*Thank you to Joy Hammond and Shayla Jenkins for helping take some of the candid photos!

  1. I like the idea of a Sprinkle instead of a Shower. I’ve heard many people debate if you should have a baby shower for your 2nd 3rd or 4th child. I'll have to tell people about Sprinkles :) Looks like a beautiful Sprinkle Camille :) I love the S'more favors.
