My daughter-in-law is having her second baby due mid June! It’s a boy! I gave her a shower when she was expecting with my first grandson. She actually asked me to do it...I went all out for that shower. She loved it...This time I’m giving her a sprinkle because it is her second..and it is another boy. It will be a very small get together with immediate family, and a few friends and their husbands... She wants it to be at their home like the last one...My other house is an hour away so people would have to travel..I had to fill up two cars to get everything there and drive the hour...:lol: I really didn’t mind...I would love suggestions...I was thinking heavy appetizers, wine, beer...cake..I just want my daughter-in-law and son to feel loved and special. I was thinking a minimum of decorating...but want to do something. Please tell me if you gave one or if someone did something for you and you loved it.. Thank you!

That is lovely that you are giving your daughter in law a sprinkle! My best friend and I threw one for another friend. Ours was a luncheon and was all ladies. We greeted guests with a glass of champagne or a mimosa. I cannot remember all details because this was several years ago now. We decorated the fireplace with a banner I believe. The food was set out in the dining room and we used a Lilly Pulitzer tablecloth. Since yours is for a little boy I think a light blue linen tablecloth would be gorgeous. We used sterling silver and china and it was buffet style. I made a tomato pie from the Silver Service cookbook. I believe we also had quiches, fruit salad, green salad, and maybe bagels. If you have a beautiful punch bowl you can make a very festive punch as well! Handsome party punch on allrecipes is my go-to. I made the cake, which I decorated very simply. It was a white cake flavored with almond extract, raspberry jam filling, and light pink buttercream frosting. We used a very sweet light pink pennant/bunting from etsy to top the cake and displayed the cake on a gorgeous cake stand as the centerpiece for the table. Knowing my best friend, we most likely had hydrangeas in mint julep cups as floral decorations. I realize this decor/theme might not be everyone's taste, but it suited our dear friend perfectly. I recommend etsy for beautiful/simple decorations.
