An adorable party with an adorable theme!  A Sip 'n' See for a new baby boy with so many clever references to what boys love!  From bow tie pasta salad to Mississippi Mud Cake, Eleanor of Pink Peppermint Paper covered all the boy bases!  What a wonderful welcome to the world for a sweet baby boy and his family!

How cute is this centerpiece with the baby's name, the grass, and the pinwheel and bunting made of maps?

The flowers made of yo yos are a great way to add color and fun- and to stay with the boy charm!

More of what this baby will most likely find fascinating in his world of boy...jacks and bicycles!

Utensils wrapped in "sneakers" complete with shoelaces!

The food table was full of funny and clever treats to keep the guests entertained while they filled their plates!

I love the "Rocks in My Pita Pocket"- I can't tell you how many times I have found rocks in my own son's pockets! 

And, the "No Girls Allowed" Club Sandwiches- so clever!

Sword fight fruit kabobs~

And, of course, where there are boys...there will be mud!  Mini mud cakes for everyone!

Eleanor even served Grasshopper Mint Tea!  How cute!

What a perfect theme!  It makes me want to hug my little guy- and it makes me smile a little bigger about all of his funny "boy ways"!  They make life fun with all of their grasshoppers and mud!

Thank you, Eleanor, for sharing your unique way of welcoming a new baby!  You can find Eleanor at Pink Peppermint Paper.  Be sure to keep up with all of her creative ideas here...
