Gender Reveal Party

The hubs and I had our gender reveal party this weekend and it was so much fun.

My mom's friend that makes cakes for fun decorated the cake and she was sure to use two layers of fondant so that my mother couldn't peek prior to the party. We specifically wrote on the envelope-- DO NOT TELL CYNTHIA.

Everyone was asked to wear pink or blue depending on what they thought that this baby was. Apparently many people were thinking that our baby was a boy. Perhaps because I've thought that our baby was a boy from the beginning? I'm not sure. My mother thought it was a boy because I'm gaining in my hips (nice, huh). My mother in law thought it was a boy because I'm all belly. Clearly no one was on the same page. They only thing that they agreed upon was team blue. Ha.

Team pink was made up of the hubs, my cousin, father, sister in law and niece. Team blue was comprised of my sister in law, brother in law, nephew, aunt, myself, grandfather, sister, father in law, cousin, mother and mother in law.

After awhile we decided to cut the cake (before dinner, we were all eager).. the next few pictures are funny because I love the facial expressions on my mother in law and mother. Ha.

and this is when they all realized what baby is....

It's a boy!

My mother's intuition was right from the very start. I knew it was a boy before I even knew that I was definitely pregnant. I'm not sure how I knew, but apparently I have ESP. When I was little, I guessed the sex of every baby correctly until I was at least 11 (and stopped trying because it wasn't cool). Maybe I should turn this into a career. Ha.

this is such a great idea! i love that people wore the color of the gender they thought it was~ it made for a great group shot

for my husband's groom dinner during our wedding weekend we themed it around auburn football. instead of everyone wearing auburn colors we asked for them to wear their own alma mater's shirt, the pics of all the different colors and schools turned out great!

YAY! So happy for you! Love that you did the gender reveal that way! I read about this before and thought it was the cutest idea but my hubby says no to that because he has to know right away! I'd love to find out this way though! It's such a cute and fun idea!

How exciting!!! And what a fun way to share it with everyone! :)

Ashley said...

How exciting! A mutual reader (Sonya) told me about your blog- we just found out we're having a boy, too! I'm due Nov. 27th. Can't wait to follow along with your pregnancy! :)
