The Baby Gender Revealing Party was a success! I had so much fun decorating, planning and preparing for it too!
My color theme (because I can't throw a party without a color theme!) was Green, Yellow and Orange. Keeping everything neutral, so that no one would be able to guess BOY or GIRL when they walked in the door. I found these tissue paper POMS online, and they are so awesome! I think they might even be pretty easy to make too if you tried. I found yellow and orange tulips at Walmart, and yellow and white checkered napkins from my mom to decorate the island where the food was going to be. I frame a face picture of the sonogram we got from the doctor and used the little kids alphabet blocks to spell out BOY and GIRL for decoration.
I made the important cupcakes with yellow cake mix, orange frosting and then I made the yellow, orange and green pinwheels for the top. Oh and the most important part, I filled them with a filling, the color, either BOY or PINK!
Next I decorated the table for dinner. Using the orange Crush pop bottles as decoration, and then also offering "Yellow" lemonade (and water and tea of course, those just didn't stick with the theme!). The only thing I would have done different with the table decorations, is I would have put their names on the pinwheels, to assign their seats at the table.
Overall, I was very pleased with the decor! I thought the yellow, orange and green colors really made it fun and left a lot of suspense for the cupcake....dessert!
The family arrived and "Team Boy" and "Team Girl" were both represented. As you can see, Team Boy was definitely favored to win!
Dinner was finally over....and now on to DESSERT!!!
IT'S A BOY!!!!
The proud parents
We are SOOOO excited about our little man!
