We had so much fun hosting a gender reveal party for baby #2! It was the weekend before Valentine's Day, so I snuck some hearts into our yellow, pink and blue decor and treats. The result was a bright and happy little party, which was perfect since we are so thrilled to be welcoming this little girl into our family!Jake's milk & cookies birthday party. A pink and blue banner asking "girl or boy?" in the same font and style as our invitations hung over the dessert table. And, of course, there was the simple white gender reveal cake with a blue and pink heart topper and the mystery-colored icing inside.
A chalkboard tally greeted our guests in the entryway, along with felt hearts and safety pins so they could wear their guess throughout the party. To assist their decision making, mini-chalkboards with old wives tales supporting each gender were places on the table next to baby pictures of me and Matt. At the end of the party, we set pink heart-shaped "It's a girl!" cookie favors on the entry table so our guests could take one more treat on the road.
The party itself consisted of informal house tours (since we'd just finished unpacking and semi-finished decorating), lots of chatting and laughing, and a couple boy vs. girl games. The boys somehow pulled out a win in Battle of the Sexes -- a card game quizzing girls on boy knowledge and vice versa, but the girls came out victorious in our very intense pink vs. blue jenga game. The tie breaker came down to the cutting of the cake, and as we all know, the girls won :) Hooray for pink!
