Sip N' See ~ A Southern Tradition

Sip N' See Parties are part of a Southern Tradition. Ladies drop in to "sip" on something and "see" something. The "Sip" part can be punch, lemonade or tea and the "see" can be wedding gifts or a newer trend is a newborn baby!

So get out your tea sandwiches recipes, silver trays and punch bowls and host a Sip N' See Party! If you have been invited to a Sip N' See Party, may we suggest some of our Personalized Baby Gifts! Our Monogrammed Baby Hooded Towel, Personalized Baby Bib, and Monogrammed Diaper Bags will surely get some oohs and aahhs!

One of our customers just purchased some of our Monogrammed Beach Totes for her Sip N' See Party Favors. We know they will be a huge hit.

Here's a recipe that is sure to be successful at your Sip N' See Party or any Wedding Bridal Shower. Hope you enjoy.
