We had the most amazingly perfect Gender Reveal Party to find out the Gender of our little one. Our hearts are so full of joy and love right now I can hardly contain myself!
Right after we found out we were pregnant we knew we wanted to have a Reveal Party but not sure if we wanted to find out before or with everyone else. Eventually we decided we wanted the surprise and thus begun the journey to find the most exciting way I could think of to find out. I found a cute video of another couple finding out with confetti and I immediately started bawling and knew that is how I wanted to find out too. So Joe and I did a little brain storming on how we could make it work and decided we would just make Pink AND Blue poppers, put them in sperate bags, then on the day of we would hand over the sealed envelope to a friend or family member and they would open the card and bring out the correct bag. It’s not the most economical way but finding someone who sold pink or blue confetti poppers was impossible and I’m a bit of a control freak so just making them myself was perfect.
We actually went to have the Gender Checked twice, the first time the sonographer gave us a 95% on the gender and no pictures to prove it, so we decide we wanted to go get the 3D/4D ultrasound done (so cool by the way) and see if they could give us a 100% and pictures as evidence. And they did, that’s why at the end you will see two % on the card, but thankfully both answers were the same… phew….
Everything was handmade, including the confetti poppers. They are actually from Party City! All I did was dump out the confetti and take off the labels, then I made my own labels and put in my own confetti. Super simple! I made all the mustaches and lips using my handy-dandy Silhouette Cameo (my early Xmas present from Joe), I love it and will definitely be using it a lot for future parties.
And on to the best part, the video and pics are priceless! So thankful the Lord has given us this little blessing.
