What is a baby sprinkle?

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 are definitely fewer presents because usually, the moms have the essentials already.

Ready for budget-friendly donut theme baby shower planning tips??

Baby Shower Planning Tip 1: Serve snacks instead of a full meal

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!

Baby Shower Planning Tip 2: 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!

Baby Shower Planning Tip 3: DIY the little decorations!

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.

Donut-themed sayings for party:

  • Donut be shy!
  • DONUT worry, be happy!
  • You get EXTRA sprinkles!
  • It’s DONUT time!
  • Pick me! Pick me!
