Prince or Princess??

Gender Reveal parties are all the rage. 
I blame the Duggars. I had never heard of a gender party before they did one for their granddaughter.

Still, they are so much fun to do, and I love the idea of exchanging a massive group text for a celebration!
When my dear friend asked to to help with a Gender Reveal for a precious couple at our church. I jumped at the chance! 

We chose the theme "Prince or Princess?" and it turned out absolutely adorable!

I started with an entrance table that stated, "Wear Your Guess." I made little pink and blue crown pins for everyone to wear to declare which side they were on! I also included a list of Old Wives Tales and how they all measured up...

Guests wrote wishes and notes for the new baby, and offered name suggestions. That was a huge hit! We quickly ran out of these pink and blue cards, people were getting paper towels or of the bathroom to write names on!!

We kept table decorations simple, pink and blue table cloths with white pom poms and a few cut out shapes:

Most of the food was pink and blue also! Pink and blue pretzel hugs, rice krispie treats, m&m's, and these adorable little cupcakes! I made a few cupcake picks to tie in the theme.

I hate that no one got a picture of the actual reveal. They did a balloon drop with tons of pink and blue balloons, and one of them had a note in it. Everyone had to stomp the balloons to find it...
