Happy 2 day birthday, Ryen Wolf! As a fellow 2nd child, your Auntie Niecy wanted to throw a small, casual baby sprinkle all your own since you’ll have a lifetime of hand-me-downs starting with your crib and hospital bag, lol. Being the planner that I am, I already had a great gender versatile idea in mind if someone asked (wink wink) - Teeny Wolf! After your Auntie Niecy searched and re-watched Teen Wolf to freshen her memory, she discovered and shared with me that the movie was released on your mother’s birthday. It was meant to be!
I mean, really, for how many other occasions would this theme be as fitting?! Your last name is Wolf without the “e”, your dad played basketball in high school, and your mom LUVS an old school moment! Your due date was NYE, and I like baby showers to be 2 months prior to the due date. With that in mind, I thought a Halloween baby sprinkle would be super cute and work well with the theme. Once your gender was revealed we chose to focus more on the team spirit aspect and less on the sport itself. That was accomplished by having a Teeny Wolf Prep Rally!
We spread the word by scribbling all the details in a teeny composition notebook and delivering them to the guests. They raved about them so much we could only wait a week later to hand deliver your mommy’s invite to her (fearful that someone else would reveal the surprise theme to her accidently). She was an emotional wreck! (I have the video to prove it.)
Guests arrived and signed your Teeny Wolf stuffed animal’s tshirt before rocking a pair of Teeny Wolf spirit glasses and sporting blingy paw drink holders. They were seated at tables adorned with Teeny Wolf mega phone vases filled with lush hydrangea and teeny foam fingers, pom poms, and Stiles tshirt inspired table signs.
We all stuffed ourselves with a variety of gourmet pizzas and adult cookie ice cream sandwiches. My favorites were the prosciutto, Italian sausage, and arugula pizza and the M&M cookie with chocolate stout ice cream, the chocolate chip cookie with strawberry gin ice cream and snickerdoodle with bourbon vanilla ice cream (don’t judge, I split it).
Mommy, Auntie Niecy and I wore Teeny Wolf tshirts with our 80’s game day looks. Custom Stiles’ “What are you looking at Snottynose” tshirts were given to the prep rally cheer winners. (Ms. Monique will share how her squad was robbed of the win.) It was so much fun celebrating your upcoming arrival and getting mommy prepared with NEW stuff just for you. At almost 6 pounds, you truly are a Teeny Wolf. See you when you get home!
