Sip and see baby shower

Beverages play a key role in this type of drop in baby shower.

Baby shower themes:
This baby shower theme allows guests to come and see the new baby. Beverages (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) are served, the menu is kept light, decorating is minimal, and the whole shower is kept informal.
