I mean how cute are these??

A dear friend is expecting her second child and while she did not want to have a shower, we knew we still had to honor her and celebrate Baby #2.  What better way than a simple sprinkle?

With just a few jars of rainbow sprinkles and simple supplies we already had, we were able to host this sweet soiree.

We decided a light menu of sweet treats was the way to go.
Funfetti sprinkle dip

Chocolate and sprinkle dipped strawberries

And the best ever sprinkle cookies.
My friend Haley makes these, and they are dangerously delish!

Melt Away Cookies
Makes about four dozen small cookies.
1 18 oz box white cake mix with pudding in the mix
2/3 cup flour
2 large eggs
1/3 cup canola oil
2 T sour cream or plain nonfat Greek Yogurt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix and flour.  Add eggs, oil and sour cream and mix on medium speed. Batter will be fairly stiff.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (really important to keep cookies soft!). Roll batter into 1 inch balls and and gently flatten until about 1/2 inch thick.  You don't want the bottoms to be browned or you've overbaked these. Bake approximately ten minutes until just set. Let them cool about one minute on the pan and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 T heavy cream
1 t vanilla extract
3-4 cups powdered sugar
1 T meringue powder (optional, useful if you want your icing to harden)
Food coloring or sprinkles as desired

Beat butter on medium speed for about two minutes until smooth.  Add cream and vanilla and beat about one more minute to incorporate.  Add sugar, one cup at a time mixing on low speed until incorporated until you reach the desired consistency.  Add meringue powder.  Frost cooled cookies and decorate with your favorite sprinkles! Store cookies in an airtight container.

And of course with cookies you need a good glass of milk!

I made this simple banner just drawing the letters on cardstock, outlining with glue and adding the sprinkles.  For added "sprinkles" Haley cut out circles from different colored construction paper and stuck on the wall.  Such a fun touch!

A little glue, sprinkles and ribbon make for an easy centerpiece.

 With all my leftover sprinkles, I just added to my votives for an extra touch of sprinkle.

Cheers to our sweet friend and Baby #2!


  1. OMGOSH this is so adorable! I've seen baby sprinkles, but never a sprinkle with a sprinkle theme! So clever!

  2. Such a cute party! I love the simplicity of the theme--it makes adding fun details and food so easy!
