Two of my dear friends threw me a gender reveal party at my house. Because I love to decorate a party, I played a big role in the decorations (I just didn't know which color I would be rooting for at the end of the day ;)).
Mint, pink, and gold were super popular this season so we decided to incorporate navy and call that our color scheme. The host, ashley, ordered "twinkle twinkle little star, how we wonder what you are" invitations so we also added gold starts to the mix. We really just wanted the party to be intimate and fun with the ultimate purpose of finding out the gender of our baby!
When it comes to throwing a party, I love to find a theme and stick to it all the way. Because our colors were navy, gold, mint and pink with mint and pink being the main colors I used everything from fabric pins to make your guess down to the food to showcase the colors.
The wear your guess chalkboard was a chalkboard I just had around the house. I bought pink and mint green fabric at hobby lobby, cut then into strips and glued them onto safety pins to make pins for people to wear their guess. I cut the gold stars out of glitter paper I had around the house. I made the 3 bunting banners out of tissue paper and yarn. For "team boy" we had spinach artichoke dip, blue raspberry twizlers, green apple sour dummies, and green macaroons. "Team girl" food included strawberry cupcakes and pink macaroons. We had ham sandwiches and veggie cups also. I found the boy and girl profile silhouettes on google, printed them out, and traced them onto navy paper and cut those out to frame. Ashley brought the gold paper plates and chevron table runner. Ashley and Kate also brought the black balloon with the reveal confetti inside.
I loved how the bunting banners turned out! I was nervous because tissue paper is so fragile but they worked so well. The 3 different shapes and colors went together so well!
Have fun when planning any party with a theme! You can incorporate the theme and/or colors with decorations and even down to food! Get creative and make the most of it!
