First of all, you may be wondering….what is a baby sprinkle?

Baby sprinkles are common when you are pregnant with subsequent kiddos. They are called “sprinkles” because it’s not a full on traditional baby shower, but just a sprinkling of love. Baby sprinkles are typically smaller and possibly less formal than a baby shower and there’s definitely less presents because usually the moms have the essentials already.

So, we knew we wanted to do a diaper shower, but of course I wanted a cute theme to plan the party around…and boom! Diapers and donuts! The ideas of baby sprinkle decorations started flowing and I knew it was going to be too cute!

This baby sprinkle shower came together so easily. I kept things really simple because I knew it was going to be low key and laid back. These sprinkle baby shower ideas can be replicated on a budget and they don’t require a ton of time either!

Serving a full meal to party guests can get complicated…not to mention, expensive! By hosting your baby shower (or really any type of event) at a time that is “in between” meals, you aren’t expected to provide a full meal. We had the party in the mid morning on a Saturday and served donuts, coffee, juice and berry fruit cups. Light and simple!

Washi tape is a simple way to add color to your party decorations.

Incorporating washi tape is such a simple and budget friendly way to add vibrancy and color to your baby sprinkle decorations. I picked up some simple white square paper plates, white plastic cutlery and white paper cups for the party. Then, I simply added different patterns of washi tape that matched the bright color scheme of the party. I had fun putting the washi tape on the paperware in a random design. I even found some adorable donut patterned washi tape that was perfect!

I also made some cute flags for the donuts on the donut stand with washi tape and toothpicks. I just wrapped the washi tape around the top of the toothpicks and then wrote in some cute donut themed sayings.
