Sprinkled with Love Invite
Baby Sprinkles are quickly becoming popular.
What is a Sprinkle Baby Shower?
A Sprinkle is a baby shower that's held for the mother-to-be who already has young children and probably still has most of the big ticket items she'll need for raising another baby such as a high chair, a walker, a stroller, a crib and a car seat.
At a Sprinkle she'd be more likely to get new clothing, blankets, diapers, and all of the other little things she'll need for the new baby such as powders, creams and maybe even a new diaper bag.
Sprinkles are especially useful when the newcomer will be a bundle of love of the opposite sex when mommy will need clothing and items in a whole new color scheme.
How to throw a Baby Sprinkle Instead
There's really no difference in the party planning. You can play games, or not. You can make it a tea, brunch, luncheon or dinner party. You can include the guys for a Couples Sprinkle, or just get the girls together if you like.
Many prefer to use a fun theme that incorporates the cute name such as "Sprinkles on a Cupcake" or "Rain Shower related Sprinkles" but again, this is totally up to you.
Your invitations will probably be the most important thing that you'll need to make it known to your intended guests that you're having a Sprinkle instead of a regular shower. Many will include a cute poem that explains things for those who've never been to one before. And since these parties are a fairly new idea, there might be quite a few that fit that description.

The History of Bridal Showers
Did you know that the custom of throwing a bridal shower dates back to the time when dowries were popular? Friends of the woman to be wed began giving what is now known as a bridal shower to compensate women who came from poor families who couldn't afford a proper dowry, or for a woman whose father didn't approve of the marriage and refused to pay.
