Gender Reveal Party

We had both of our families over for a little dessert party last week
to reveal whether our baby to be is a boy or a girl.

I had so much fun decorating and putting this together.
Most of the decor is from etsy, or DIY by yours truly.
Let me know if you're interested in the sellers, I would recommend them all!

The spread...Mocha wanted to be included :)


Everything was pink & blue.


The desserts!

The guests.
As you can see, pink was in the majority.

My sister in law took this little video of the actual reveal.
It's pretty loud, and a little chaotic, 
but it makes me smile each time I watch it.
The screaming "it's a girl!" is to my dad, on the phone because he couldn't be there.
My nephew makes a little cameo appearance
As does our name choice for the baby girl.



Since the big reveal, we've been shopping {just a little!}
Baby girl's closet is off to a good start...
and planning for the nursery. 
Lots more to come on that! 
Happy Monday!
