Well look who is in charge of throwing a baby shower! Only ... it's not for the mom's first child. So while a gal may want to celebrate, pulling out all the stops for a full-blown baby shower may feel like overkill. If so, consider throwing a "baby sprinkle" instead -- a smaller shower for second, third, or even later pregnancy. Yep, it's true -- this is a real, growing trend for moms who are having their second kid and beyond and still want to do something special to celebrate the new baby.

Every baby that a couple has is special, of course -- it just seems like a shame that there is a great big, hoopla for the first baby and then after that? Well, let's just say it's not the same thing. That's why a sprinkle is genius. The general gist of baby sprinkles is that they're low-key; while guests may bring gifts, they're usually smaller (think onesies rather than car seats). Sometimes there may be no gifts at all, just close friends and family gathering for a few snacks to toast the great news. For plenty of inspiration on how to put together a baby sprinkle with panache, check out these creative ideas.
