Party Planning + Gifting

DEP_5583DEP_5586Ice cream pens

I’m party planning over here. One of my best friends is having her fourth child, she already has three beautiful, sweet as angel boys and the fourth one coming is a girl! I know everyone is just so excited and I love that my friends are having babies because being Auntie is seriously a fun and honorable role to have and my friends should have a zillion children because they are each incredible people that need to reproduce. That’s how I feel about everyone having babies!

Since this is the fourth baby, to be named Elle, and it’s getting hot already, I decided an ice cream sprinkle would be a good idea. Get it? Baby sprinkle, ice cream sprinkles, yeah yeah.


I suggested Jennifer register at, it’s a great wedding, baby and gift registry and works with any store in the world. Isn’t that so nice, that way you don’t have to pick a favorite store, you can register for anything you want on one place – so you can register to your heart’s content! You can also register for cash gifts by creating a cash fund – it can help with a nursery fund, home fund, or honeymoon.

Here’s an example of what a baby registry looks like.

I found these cute treat cups and table covers from the Target Spritz line. I can’t find them online so you have to go to the store.


I can’t show everything just yet but will share more pics next month when I throw the sprinkle – it’ll be an evening event on the patio so we can enjoy the outdoor treats! I read to scoop the ice cream in cups ahead of time so it doesn’t melt and it’s cleaner and easier to distribute with a fun toppings bar.

If you’re expecting a baby, here’s a neat graphic to help you decide what to put in your registry if you’re blanking on ideas.

    I love my registry! I used it for registering when I was pregnant.

    Thanks for sharing this. It’s really awesome that such an easy-to-use registry works for any store. I’m sure guests are big fans of being able to purchase their gifts from wherever they want, especially when it comes to baby gear.

      Isn’t it? You don’t have to pick that one favorite store because it’s pretty hard to do that! :)
