Sip & See Photos!

As I mentioned yesterday, the Sip & See went great! It was so much fun and Baby Jasper received many adorable gifts. Below are some pictures from the event. I also included information about where I got most of it, as some have already asked, and I know I always like to know where to get everything, too! :)

Invites - (inspiration from the TomKat Studio) These were completely designed using digital scrapbooking kits from DigiScrap Addicts and Just Digi Layouts. I found the wording for the front on Google: Lemonade pop sweets and treats, someone new for you to meet! You are invited to a Sip & See... The back was just the party information.

Entryway - bubble wands $1 (from Dollar Tree) in pots from Dollar General ($2.50 each)

Food Table - drink jars are from Wal-Mart ($5.96 each). These are great because they're so versatile that you can use them for a variety of things!

Cupcakes - (again, inspiration from TomKat Studio...she's amazing!!) Cupcake stand is from Michael's, normally $19.99 but I bought it with a 50% off coupon. I also bought wrapping paper from Michael's, and cut circles to cover the cupcake stand. The toppers are all designs from the invitations, but I also added Jasper's birthdate for one of the toppers. That date stamp is from a digital scrapbooking kit by WM[squared]Designs. We made chocolate fudge cupcakes as well as strawberry cupcakes with blueberries in them (thanks for the idea, mom!) and they were a HUGE hit! Would love one right now. :)

Candy Bar - For guest favors, I set up a candy bar along with sippy cups for guests to take some candy home with them. (sippy cups were purchased 5/$1 at Dollar Tree - what a steal!) I bought all the candy at Wal-Mart, including the precious little swirl lollipops...only 33 cents each!

And finally, my gift to Jasper! I put together a basket, because who doesn't love gift baskets?! I bought the orange basket at Hobby Lobby and embellished it with some wood designs from Michael's and a vinyl "J" from Uppercase Living. I filled it with diapers, some clothes, a bib, and some pacifiers that I found at Target thanks to Katie at It's in the Details - that girl could be a personal shopper - she always posts about the neatest finds!

Also in the basket was a PRECIOUS dress and headband from Jaime at BusyBizzyB. Her blog & etsy shop always have such cute things, and she's GREAT to work with! This wasn't actually in her etsy shop but I requested it, and she had it to me in no time flat. Go check her out!

Oh, I also had a picture frame in the basket, and I put Jasper's first picture along with her birth info. in it...but forgot to take a picture of it actually in the frame! Here is the digital design of it:

Well, I think that's it! It was a lot of work but a TON of fun. :) Thanks to everyone who helped & shared ideas!! I'll leave you with a picture of the proud mommy, and sweet Jasper gazing up at her favorite "aunt" - me!! :)
