When Meagan Morris started selling wedding invitations and drink koozies from an Etsy shop in 2011, she said she had no idea her company, Sip Hip Hooray, would be where it is today. In 2020, she launched a wholesale line of shatterproof frosted cups with watercolor designs, which is now in 560 stores nationwide, she said.

And on June 3, she opened a storefront selling home, gift and party goods in Tomball, her hometown. The shop’s headquarters remains on FM 2920 in Tomball.

“I would have never imagined 10 years ago if somebody told me, ‘You’re going to have a store on Main Street in Tomball,’” she said.

Morris said she grew up in Tomball and graduated from Tomball High School in 2007. When she started her Etsy shop, it was a part-time gig to make some extra money. After seeing the success she had, she said she quit her job in 2014 to grow Sip Hip Hooray full time.

When Morris and her husband, Luke, who quit his full-time job in 2015 to work for the business, were coming up with a name for the company, she said the initial pitch was “Meagan Adair Designs.”


“I wanted to separate myself from the business,” Morris said. “I want the business to be bigger than me.”

Morris said the couple settled on Sip Hip Hooray, instead, since at the time they mostly sold drink koozies for weddings.

Morris said she sees Tomball becoming a wedding destination with the city already home to Buttercup Bakery—which also opened in June—and Bramble & Bee, a local florist. In opening a storefront, she said she wanted to keep with that wedding theme but still offer something unique.

“Our vision for the store was ‘elevate the everyday’ [with products like] surprising little gifts and gourmet food,” Morris said.

Sip Hip Hooray offers customers the ability to personalize products for special occasions, such as koozies, cups and invitations.

Morris said one of the best parts of opening up a storefront has been being able to meet people who may have purchased from her years ago.

“They’ve grown with us, and they know us, so that’s been really rewarding to see people face to face because we were online, and then we went national, and then we brought it home,” she said.
