gender reveal

We knew we wanted to do something different to announce the gender of our newest addition and thought it would be fun to do a gender reveal party since we really haven't had many people over since buying our house 2 years ago.

I had seen so many cute ideas for gender reveal parties and was so excited to do this, even if I was hosting it for myself.

Without further adieu I will let yall know the results...followed by the details.

Baby L #2 is...

A BOY!!!!!

We did not know going in to the party what we were having, though I will say I was shocked up until a week before I really did not have a feeling one way or another.  The last week though I really started to think it was a girl so when I pulled out that blue pin I was so shocked but so happy! I am so excited to have two brothers close in age.  A true boy mom!!

I used burlap and ribbon with lots of flowers for the decorations.  I love fluffy fresh flowers, hydrangeas, carnations, and baby's breath were what I went with.  I didn't get a picture of the food but I made Pioneer Woman Lasagna, garden salad, veggie tray, Special Fruit Salad, and some little snacks like pretzels and vanilla cookies in addition to the cake and some petit fours.

I made this wreath and thought it turned out so well!!

loved the cake! those grey ribbons had the colored safety pin charms on them so when we pulled out the ribbon we would see what the gender was!



Clearly most everyone thought it was going to be a girl!!

We had such a great time and enjoyed the food and celebrating with friends.  We feel so blessed to be welcoming another sweet boy into our family come November!!
