When one of my dearest friends, Christine, found out number two was going to be a little boy I didn’t waste any time helping to plan a baby sprinkle for her. Here is a sneak peak into the party with all of the sources and do-it yourself details needed to pull off your very own baby boy sprinkle, baby shower, sip & see or even a first birthday party!
The Thursday evening soiree was held at my favorite spot for private functions in Greenville, The Lazy Goat. I worked with Table 301 Catering to reserve The Lazy Goat’s Fountain Room which is a perfect space for up to 40 guests. Our group of friends has had many a celebration in this room ranging from sit down baby shower luncheons, birthday parties, Christmas parties and more. It really is the best little spot in downtown Greenville! One of the huge upsides? Table 301 Catering coordinating all of our favorite dishes from The Lazy Goat! The menu for this party consisted of crab cakes, Italian grilled cheese sliders with tomato, hummus & vegetables, truffle pommes frites, lemon chicken skewers, and hand cut pizzas.
And any party I plan wouldn’t be complete without some sweet treats from Baked & Frosted as seen here, here and here. They are the best cakes & cupcakes and the owner, Meghan, can create anything your mind can think of!
For the centerpieces I found white & gold vases at Hobby Lobby, arranged some fresh flowers in them and topped with a photo prop. I would have loved lush arrangements filled with greens and blues but I was on a time crunch and did the best I could with what flowers the Fresh Market had. In keeping with the festive theme, I sprinkled confetti around the table.
I’m a huge fan of decorating with what you will be eating and drinking! Not only does it save money, but you don’t have to clean it up or deconstruct it at the end of a party since everyone does that for you throughout the course of the event! For this party we decided to go with LaMarca Prosecco partly for it’s delicious taste but mostly for it’s pretty blue label. I found some swizzle sticks at Swoozies, threaded some cotton candy I found at Party City and placed them in glasses stacked symmetrically. Add a little confetti and you have a mighty fine (and cute) drink station!

How To Make a Balloon Arch
Step 1. Get balloons in coordinating colors. Blow up a variety of colors and leave some of the balloons not fully inflated. Aka only blow them up half way or so. This will make the smaller balloons.
Step 2. Taking a long line of floral wire start threading the knot end of the balloons as you would a needle and thread. Keep adding balloons onto the floral wire rotating sizes and colors.
Step 3. Make the balloons start to spiral around the wire and keep stacking them until you have the length you want.
Step 4. Using a 3m hook hang the balloon arch on a wall and tape any open spaces closed using double sided tape on the balloons. Is there a gap in one section? No problem, just put a little double sided tape on each balloon you have a gap between and stick them together to make the balloon arch look nice and full!
