Gender Reveal Party!

I threw my first gender reveal party last Saturday for my sister in law & brother in law!  Check out my photos to see the decor and of course the gender!  Most decorations were handmade by me; to order e-mail lovelylittlebride@gmail.com or visit me on Etsy - Confetti & Sparkles.

I used a large chalkboard from Hobby Lobby to do the Old Wives Tales & let the parents-to-be circle if it was "boy" or "girl"
The bows and mustaches were free cut by hand from $0.79 hot pink felt and navy blue felt from Michaels.
Cake pops courtesy of That's Sweet.
The Tassel Garland is hot pink, navy blue, gold, white and silver tissue paper on twine.  I used this Pinterest tutorial.
The Baby B, Boy or Girl Banner is made with doilies from Michaels, kraft tags, hand lettering in white map pencil, twine and mini clothes pins. 
I used a medium chalkboard so guests could vote boy or girl!  After voting they grabbed a bow or mustache pin to show their vote!

For drinks we served Blue Moon and Blueberry Mint Water for the "boys" and Pink Champagne and Pink Lemonade for the "girls".  At each drink station we had a mix of grey, navy and pink straws in mason jars plus a few grey ones with bows or mustaches.
For food we had berry skewers to play on blue and pink.  Since Serena is having zero cravings we stocked up on favorites like a veggie tray, guacamole, chip and dip plus a cheese tray.  Then after the reveal we grilled burgers and hot dogs!  If your mommy to be is having cravings set up a snack station with all the fun things she is craving (think pickles & ice cream!)

For the reveal we used confetti poppers. I worked with an amazing Etsy vendor, Gender Reveal, to get these.  You can also make these using push pops from the supermarket, glue, printed paper, confetti and tissue paper.  A tutorial is here.
So do I have a niece or nephew on the way?  Watch the video to see!
