Gender Reveal Party

My good friend Jenny is pregnant with her first child and this weekend we threw a gender reveal party. I just love this concept!!! After their 20 week ultrasound she had the ultrasound tech give me a call with the gender information. I then made a cake which concealed the gender inside!! (blue filling for boy/pink filling for girl) They invited all their closest friends to celebrate her pregnancy and share this special moment. At 8:30 we cut the cake and revealed the baby's gender!!


















































































































































The cake!! Inside held the secret of the baby's gender. Inside is either pink or blue icing...when the cake is cut the secret is out!!! :)






















Guests were instructed to wear pink or blue to the party, whatever color they thought the gender was. Upon arrival guests were given pink or blue beads to match their guess.






















.

Such a cute little baby bump...inside was the man (or) little lady of the hour...





























We had so much fun (maybe too much) with these chocolate mustache and lip props. Love them!!!






























The Proud Parents

































Jenny "named" all the foods to fit the gender theme...her food labels were hilarious!
























Good food........GREAT drinks!!!! How fun are these?!??

























Time to cut the cake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Drum roll pleeeeeeease............



PINK OR BLUE????????
