Galentine's brunch, valentine's day with your girl friends, baby chick

Throwing Your Perfect Galentine’s Day Brunch! Valentine’s Day is known as the day of love. A day that you are supposed to spend quality time with the person that means most to you and shower them with your love and attention. We are all for that here at Baby Chick. It’s important to spend that one-on-one time together since we know it can be difficult with little ones at home. But why just spend the day with your partner? Why not spend part of the day with the ladies in your life that you are grateful for? That’s exactly what we did! There…

A Chic(k) Celebration: Mother’s Day Soiree / Our One Year Anniversary

Tuesday, May 10, 2016 By Nina Spears

I can’t believe that it was one year ago today that I (and my husband) started Baby Chick. I had a vision to create a place online that celebrated motherhood…and we did it! There are plenty of people and websites out there that talk about the not-so-glamorous side of motherhood, or that make fun of the crazy/annoying/exhausting things about motherhood (which is a good thing because it’s better to laugh about it than cry), but I wanted to create a place online that educates, inspires and uplifts women and mothers. A place that unifies us all and is a great resource for the modern mom….

A Chic(k) Celebration: Bachelorette Bash

Wednesday, April 6, 2016 By Sarah Ring

When you hear the words “bachelorette party” your mind is suddenly bombarded by images of hot pink, feather boas, plastic tiaras and phallic shaped drinking straws. Bachelorette celebrations are often fairly generic and somewhat gauche, but they certainly don’t have to be! Recently I had the great pleasure of hosting my sister’s last single soirée and being that all of her bridesmaids were already married, I was thrilled to plan a party sans penis cakes. In fact, aside from the bride, our guests ranged from married, pregnant, nursing an infant, all the way to a mother of two. Needless to…

Celebrating & Giving Back to Mothers | Our Mother’s Day Soiree

Wednesday, March 9, 2016 By Nina Spears

Can you believe that it’s already March?! I certainly can’t. I feel like it was just a couple months ago when Brian (my husband) and I were planning and preparing for Baby Chick’s launch and now here we are just two month’s away from our company’s 1st birthday. It’s crazy! When they say that the days are long but the years are short, they nailed it right on the head. You work so hard day in and day out, but all of a sudden your babies are grown, and my baby (Baby Chick) is now about to reach it’s first milestone — 1 year…

How to Throw a Sprinkle Themed Baby Shower

Monday, August 24, 2015 By Nina Spears

I know some pretty incredible women. A few of those women are the ladies that I get to work with at both of my companies, Baby Chick and Bassett Baby Planning (BBP). At BBP, one of the great doulas that I have on my team is Susan. When Susan told me that she was pregnant for the second time (with another baby girl), I knew that I had to do something special for her. Ever since I’ve met Susan, she has been extremely supportive of me and both of my companies and has helped me in any way that I needed. She truly is phenomenal…

How to Host the Most Elegant Baby Shower Tea Party

Friday, July 10, 2015 By Quinn Kelly

My older sister is having her first baby this month. So it was only natural that I wanted to throw her an extra special shower to celebrate her growing bundle of baby this Spring. But because I live in a different state than she does, I was not able to host a shower for her in my own home or city. So my amazing friends (who happen to be the most beautiful twins you’ve ever met) volunteered to host the shower at their house. And they suggested the idea of having a tea party instead of traditional shower so we…

6 Ways to Include Men in Baby Showers

Tuesday, June 23, 2015 By Quinn Kelly

6 Ways to Include Men in Baby Showers (And Make Them Want to Go to Every Shower From That Point On!) As women, we are wonderful at throwing baby showers or sprinkles for moms to celebrate their growing bellies and the life they are carrying inside of them. But often times we forget that many dads would like to celebrate too, but don’t feel it’s culturally acceptable (or manly) to get hyped up about their baby. So today, I wanted to share my favorite ideas for incorporating dads into baby celebrations. So that they can be a part of the…
