Gender Reveal Party

On Tuesday, October 22, we had a Gender Reveal party. We had close friends and family in attendance, both in person and with the help of social media (Skype, Google Hangout and FaceTime). Yes, I used a laptop, my iPad and my phone at the same time, so everyone could participate. ;)

It was an absolute blast. We hung out, ate snacks, spent time talking, our friends got to know our other friends, and then the BIG reveal happened! At 7:00pm we found out, at the same time as our guests, what the gender of our second child will be. It was so exciting!

Below are pictures from our gender reveal party. It was so much fun to put together, and I enjoyed every second of it! The Etsy shops listed were a joy to work with. They helped me create this party in a bright, ombre color scheme, that offers a new approach to gender reveal parties, besides pink and blue. The colors made me so happy and went together very well. Several of these Etsy shops took the time to create custom items to match the theme of this party, and I'm so grateful they wanted to take part in this event! Check out the link to each storefront to see other unique items they offer. SO many fun party essentials available through these wonderful shops!
