Baby Sprinkle

For this pregnancy I decided I didn’t want to have an official baby sprinkle. I was so blessed to have had 3 baby showers thrown for me when I was pregnant with Sareena (one in the Bay Area thrown by my mother to celebrate with relatives, one in Los Angeles thrown by my amazing SIL, and a mini one thrown by my husband’s company)! So really, I just felt like I’ve had enough celebrations for myself.

Instead, I decided to turn my baby sprinkle into a casual event to celebrate Sareena becoming a big sister! It made the most sense as I wanted to invite 15 of my closest mom friends who all have toddlers around Sareena’s age or slightly older.

We gathered in the beautiful Temescal Gateway park in Pacific Palisades in our own private area. I had so much fun planning their activities! I took some of Sareena’s favorite activities we do at home and decided to incorporate it into the party. We had a baby washing station, play dough table, mini baby dolls, and a large painting & art area where every toddler had their own mini canvas to paint on to take home while wearing their little art aprons!


Hahaha her shoes totally match right? I’d also like to mention daddy did her hair.












Since the party was in the late afternoon I kept the food simple by having several charcuterie boards laid out and a donut tower from the only place I’d eat donuts from–Blue Star in Venice! :)



















I think it’s safe to say Sareena had lots of fun with her friends!





It was just too cute seeing everyone play in each station, I felt like it was a success! I’m so happy I centered it around Sareena becoming a big sister, I know she will be such an amazing one (she’s already shown it with her cousin since the moment he was born when she was about to turn 7 months!). She’s so nurturing with her dolls and can’t stop hugging and kissing my belly while saying “baby sistoh is inside!”

I’m truly grateful to have such an amazing family & village. Our next little girl that will be arriving really soon will definitely be welcomed & showered with soooo much love!
