Gender Reveal Party

About 2.5 months ago, we announced that we are expecting our THIRD child! (See post HERE) Well, we hit 18.5 weeks and found out the gender of the baby! I knew that I wanted to do something fun with this one. Recently, I have seen a lot of people not find out at the ultrasound, but have a friend plan a party to surprise them or have the doctor's office call into a bakery. One of my best friend's asked if she could do the party & surprise us all. I jumped on it and said OK! Then a week later, I changed my mind. I thought of how fun & exciting the ultrasound is, watching them show you everything, and then finding out the gender. I didn't want to miss out on the whole experience. (Sorry, Jen! lol!)
My husband and I decided to find out, then have a party for our girls. We invited family & friends. Had a couple treats. Nothing too fancy. But it was oh so fun for us!

I've seen a post on Pinterest about how they open a box and all blue or pink balloons come out to reveal the gender, but I wanted to do something different. So we put 6 blue balloons in the box, but also included 5 pink. One of the blue ones we duct taped to the inside and pushed it all the way to the bottom. We then put all the other balloons on top & put a lid on it. It was a blast! My 3 year old was more worried about where the other balloons were going instead of the one that stayed. It was hilarious! Another good thing about having both colors in there is the reaction of everyone. We had multiple people say to us, "Our first thought was TWINS!!" or "Well played!!". It was so fun!!

Anyways. Here are just a couple pictures from our fun evening!


White cupcakes, frosting, with pink & blue sprinkles! 

Little cups with pacifier candy
 Blue & Pink punch
 The quick set up, under the white/pink tablecloth was a teal one.
 The cake I made. Inside is a fun checkerboard pattern.
 See! First time doing this. So fun!

Anyways. The party was fun! Now I get to search Pinterest for a ton of baby boy ideas!! This whole boy thing will be totally new for me. New & exciting!
