Gender Reveal Party

This past Sunday we hosted a Gender Reveal Party for my family and close friends. These parties are a fun new trend and I knew I wanted to have one this go round. It was a quick plan but luckily it all came together great!
I started with this fun little invitation I made.
Even though I asked people to come wearing pink or blue, I still wanted a "visual" at the party to see what everyone thought. So as people arrived they were asked to cast their vote by choosing either a "baseball" or a "bow"! I wanted to incorporate part of the invite!
Then hang it on the clothsline! This was a cute idea from a friend, and I love how it looked hanging up! Everyone wrote their names on the papers, so this is something I can keep!

This was the dessert table! Everything was pink and blue! I had cupcakes, cookies, hershey kisses, cotton candy, and gumballs! I also hung the paci's from the light fixture!

            We got alot of pics from the appointment, so I put two of them out, one on blue paper and one on pink!
Here was TEAM BLUE!!
And then it was time for the reveal. I was holding a pink balloon and Paul a blue one. We filled both with blue confetti, and told eveyone whatever color came out is what we're having! (Unfortunately I don't have a pic of us holding them, but you get the idea)

This was right after the pop, to which Lane came running out of this room!!
We had a great afternoon. I'm so thankful for everyone who was able to make it! What fun memories to look back on!!
