It is a tradition here in the South that when you have a baby, you host something called a Sip n’ See. It is a time when your friends and family come over to sip some fun drinks and see your new little one! I knew that I wanted to host a Sip n’ See for Kayla, and now that the Spring weather is finally here, it was the perfect time to do so.
Twelve of my sweet friends from Bunko, Amber Housley Inspired, Making Things Happen, the wedding industry, and more came over to see Kayla for the first time. Everyone mingled around the house, but the favorite spot was definitely our new kitchen nook!
Sweet Tea never looked so good
We made four different drinks for people to sip on: Sweet Tea, Berry Lemonade, Jack Daniel’s Honey Punch, and White Sangria. We displayed them in the most adorable one gallon Classic Glass Mason Dispensers from Aladdin. Y’all, these are some of the best drink dispensers I’ve ever worked with. They are a great size for mixing, they are glass, which helps to keep the drinks extra cold and are also naturally BPA free, and the nozzle doesn’t drip when you are getting a drink! That is really important to me so I don’t ruin my countertop or floors, so I was excited about the great quality during my party.
I served the drinks in the most adorable 16 oz Classic Mason To-Go Cups. They come in a four pack, and also come in four different colors: royal blue, aqua, clear, and magenta. Naturally I preferred the magenta! These cups are appropriately called to-go cups because they come with a twist on lid and are extremely durable. They are made out of Eastman Tritan plastic, so they will not crack, break or stain. They are also dishwasher safe, which is a huge plus when cleaning up after a party! And of course, they look adorable paired with a floral paper straw.
I also prepared some tasty treats for everyone to snack on in addition to sipping on the delectable drinks. I purposefully chose snacks that could be prepared quickly while still being delicious. We had some fancier snacks, like the water crackers with white cheddar, arugula and honey and the spinach and artichoke dip, balanced with some simple snacks like cheddar bunnies (for Spring!), white cheddar popcorn, and grapes. An easy tip for making the most simple of snacks look fancier is displaying them in cute containers. Even fun cupcake liners work fabulously!
See that clear mason jar tumbler with the blue top? It has to be my favorite product from Aladdin by far. It is their 16 oz Classic Insulated Mason Tumbler, and it is amazing. As Aladdin likes to say, it is iced tea’s new BFF (or sweet tea in my case!). These tumblers have a no-sweat exterior, so your hands stay nice and dry on the hottest of Spring and Summer days. They are also double wall insulated, making them perfect for hot or cold drinks. Extra bonus feature? They are single serve compatible, meaning that you can stick your tumbler right under your Keurig and brew your favorite coffee. How cool is that? The tumblers also feature a wide “smoothie-sized” straw, so you can drink thin drinks like sweet tea or thicker ones like smoothies and margaritas. And just like the to-go cups, they are dishwasher safe. Can you tell how smitten by these tumblers I am?
If you love these products and are hoping to try them out for yourself, you’re in luck! They are available at your local Walmart stores, so you don’t even have to wait for them to be shipped to you!
