Today my friends hosted a Sip and See to introduce Baby Boy to the "world." A "Sip and See" is a tea party where friends drop in and out to meet the baby. I have not attended a Sip and See before, but I understand it is traditional in some states to have a party like this for new babies.
The party was great fun! My friend organized some delicious goodies and tea and coffee and decorated with cute boy-baby themed items. Friends from Aberdeen dropped in and admired Baby Boy. Baby Boy wore a new outfit and behaved beautifully. It is so nice to have a lovely group of friends to organize and attend a party like this. It made me feel like we are part of a community here in Aberdeen even though we are so far from home.
Here are some photos:

|Another very talented friend baked these delicious snickerdoodle cupcakes and |
decorated them with baby-themed sugar candies.
|These are the party favours. |
Each guest took away a cute teapot-shaped tea infuser and a tin box of looseleaf tea. Adorable!

Here in the UK, they really know how to package cut flowers to make them attractive!
