Do you enjoy entertaining? Hosting baby showers? Or hosting birthday parties… Typically we host our family baby showers, family celebrations, and holiday celebrations. But, this sprinkle shower was held by one of my daughter in law’s close friends. All we had to do was bring something to drink and our baby shower gifts to the celebration.
This was a perfect storm for fun, and moms meet up. Baby showers are always fun. Don’t you think? Games, mocktails and cocktails and gushing over the mom to be. Seeing presents being opened and then cookies or reveal cakes then more beverages.

We sprinkled in a few of our favorite baby shower games and tips for throwing a baby shower. Because ladies, let’s admit it we always know someone about to have a baby. Right?
- We received a box of goodies plus free coupons for Owen’s Mixers from MomsMeet.com to share with our mom’s group. This post may contain affiliate links, at no cost or price change to you. We will earn a small commission for qualifying purchases.
The mixers we brought with us to the party were Owen’s Mixers. Have you ever tried them?
Not only did we bring the mixers with us for making drinks. We had fun passing out free coupons we received for moms to try all the flavors of the mixers. The mixers are non-alcoholic, perfect for mocktails or cocktails.
It was fun to meet up with all the moms, catching up, enjoying time together and being with and the mom to be.
There was a mixed crowd, of young ladies (including Sammie and my oldest granddaughter) plus adults. This was a lunchtime celebration we opted for not mixing drinks at this shower. We made mocktails for the baby shower.
It couldn’t have been any easier to set up to serve guests. We just added our mixers to the party’s ice bucket and cut up the limes we brought. Set down our gift at the gift station.

Baby shower planning ideas
How many games at a baby shower?
Once all of the guests have arrived and had a chance to enjoy food and drink, about 30-45 minutes into the shower, the games begin. There are usually 3-5 different games lasting for another 30-45 minutes. (resource-shower planning guide)
What are some fun games and fun activities for a baby shower?
- Guessing dates for the baby’s arrival on the calendar
- Write cute sayings to the bottom of diapers for the tired parents to read
(cheers, not tears, whoops here we go again, remember the mixer, sprinkle happens, poo-pity scoop, poop there it is) What can you think of to write on a diaper?

You can find Owen’s mixers locally via their online store locator. We found ours at our local Von’s store but, I’ve also seen them at Alberton’s, BevMo. They come in 4 packs or bigger bottles like this.
Mixers To Try
How cute are those napkins? Make raising glasses as fun as raising kids! Ha, ha! What I love about the mixers besides the taste is they are vegan, gluten-free, non-alcoholic and made with less sugar and real ingredients. Sip, sip hurray! You can use Owen’s Mixers for any celebration or party! The bottled mixers were perfect to bring to the party for mixing up mocktails.
The 750mL bottle is good for up to seven days after opening if closed properly, just in case you have leftover mixers. Owen’s Craft Mixers are carbonated, so do not shake before opening. Lightly tap before drinking, as natural sediment may settle.
