I've been anxiously waiting to share these fabulous detailed pictures of our gender reveal party with you. A huge thanks goes out to my dear friend, Taylor Lord for not only attending our special event but for documenting all of the little details that I worked so hard on. Baby Girl will love looking at these one day, thanks Tay!
Side note: If you plan on pinning or sharing any of these photos on your blog please give credit to my blog and Taylor Lord Photography.
Station #1: The sign-in table.
I used an old window Peter ran wire through a while back to display our baby pictures (had been used for Christmas cards).
I spray painted the glass from a picture frame with chalkboard paint for a wedding a few months ago and used my chalk pen to write "sign-in ---->"
I put together a flower arrangement in an old jar that was on top of some old books.
Station #2: The gender voting area.
Item breakdown:I made two two-tiered diaper cakes, one for boy votes and one for girl votes. The bottom tier had 18 diapers (7 in the inner circle with a toilet paper roll in the center) and the top tier had 13 diapers (4 in the inner circle).
I used old-school clothespins for the gender votes. I colored the sides blue or green and stamped a "B" for the boy set and colored the sides purple or yellow and stamped "G" for the girl set. Guests used Sharpies to write their name on the side and then slid it on the ribbon of the gender appropriate diaper cake.
I printed and framed the voting instructions.
I put "boy" and "girl" flags I made in cupcakes displayed on the tiers I showed you how to make here.
Step #3: The food area.
I clipped the food labels onto the back of bowls and plates to add color and uniformity..as well as make it easy for guests to graze.
My mom and Taylor (the photographer mentioned earlier) wanted to see what we were planning on registering for at Buy Buy Baby before the party. While we were there I pointed out these precious robes from Just Born and my mom being the mom that she is bought them both so that whatever gender Baby Ellwood would be he/she would have a cutie patootie bath robe.
After the reveal I pulled these out of the drawer for a few pics. The framed card is what the doctor wrote "GIRL" on and the blocks were how we showed our family and friends Baby Ellwood's gender.
