I was so excited when my friend wanted me to host a baby gender reveal party for her! She gave me the sealed ultrasound envelope and I got busy planning! I think the best part of it all was that I knew something that no one else did, at least for a short time. 🙂 It was a ladies-only party, but her entire family was invited over later for the big reveal. I decided on a yellow and white theme with the less-traditional balloon pop to unveil the surprise.
On the invitation I asked everyone to wear pink or blue, depending on what they thought it was. The majority voted girl!
The excitement and anticipation level were so high. Everyone seemed to rush through dinner, and we had to end up calling her family over early for the big reveal! They couldn’t wait the extra half hour. LOL.
I borrowed the chalkboard, cake platters, and drink holder from a friend. As the guests entered in their colors, I kept tally on the board of who was on “Team Boy” and “Team Girl”.
I made the simple table runner with yellow and white polka dot fabric from Hobby Lobby. I also put together the easy white pendant banner with my Silhouette cutter.
I cut colored paper into tons of tiny pieces and stuffed it into the black balloon, in hopes that no one would be able to see through. Maybe I was just being paranoid, but when I tested it under certain lighting, I could see the colored confetti, so I took the balloon outside and gave it a coat of black spray paint. Problem solved!
I served chips with dip, chicken salad sandwiches on rolls, grapes, poppyseed bread, my special rice krispies, and lemon water. The descriptive food labels continued the fun chalkboard theme.
Their expressions say it all. It was so thrilling to find out together what their last baby would be.
