Over the weekend, we hosted a Sip & See to celebrate our new arrival, Star Rose.Since this was our 3rd child, a baby shower was out of the question. No shade to anyone but having a baby shower for each child just didn’t sit right with me. With SJ we had a gender reveal + a baby shower and with Sparkle, we did a pamper/gender reveal. This time, I wanted to do something different where the focus was just on the baby. The Sip and See was perfect, intimate and simple.
It wouldn’t be me if I didn’t make things extra by deciding to hide her from everyone until the party. We kept the gender a surprise, although some found out, her name was a total secret. It was so much fun having everyone guess thinking it was a boy, I promise you everyone thought she was a boy!!! My family kept calling me a fake Beyoncé but they ended up loving the idea.
Being one-month postpartum, I wanted to keep the details/decor of the party really simple. I was thrilled when Hyatt House Parsippany East extended their gathering room to us. It was the perfect place. To make things fun for the kids, we did a staycation the night of the party.
We are so thankful for everyone who came out to celebrate with us and for those of you who watched us as we went LIVE on Instagram.
