“Sip & See”

Published January 21, 2011 by tianateaparty

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!
