As an event planner I love finding out about different party concepts and elements. As an avid viewer of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, (actually I have watched all of the them since the beginning with the OC Housewives franchise) Phaedra had a sip and see to celebrate the birth of her new-born son. That started a lot flurry of questions about what a “Sip and See” was and even the validity of it. I googled it and found that it is a very common tradition in the South. I like the idea , people always want to see the baby and I think it’s a great idea to have a gathering to celebrate the new-born and the family.
The “Sip & See” is exactly that, you come have drinks /appetizers and see the new-born baby. It is generally held about a month after the baby’s birth in an open house format. Gifts are at the discretion of those attending.
Although this is a Southern tradition I have a feeling that we will start seeing and hearing more about “Sip and See’s”. Any reason to celebrate! And I LOVE IT!
