Gender Reveal Party- Decor

The Challenge: To throw an awesome Gender Reveal Party to reveal the gender of our second child.

My Inspiration: Pinterest people who throw amazing parties to incite shock and awe amongst their families.

The Concept: Distinct Sides- Pink and Blue, our guests make their prediction.

What I Need: A LOT OF STUFF! Here’s a brief list of all I needed:

  • Tablecloths (Pink & Blue, White)
  • Napkins (Pink & Blue)
  • Forks, Knives, Spoons (Pink & Blue)
  • Signage in frames
  • Painted pumpkins (x3)
  • Puppy Chow (Pink & Blue candies added)
  • Cheerios Treats (Pink & Blue dipped candy coating)
  • Foam block for holding Cheerios treats
  • Streamers (Pink & Blue)
  • Balloons (Pink & Blue)
  • Tissue paper flowers (x6) (Pink & Blue)
  • Tissue paper flowers banner (x2) (Pink & Blue)
  • Ultrasound pictures in frame
  • Glass bowls, plastic bowls, wine glasses, serving trays for holding stuff
  • Cravings corner – all my favorite candies (7 types)
  • Favor cups for people to fill with candy from Cravings Corner
  • Flowers (Pink, Blue, White)
  • 10 pink necklaces
  • 10 blue necklaces
  • 12 Pens
  • Old Wives Tales Quiz
  • Pregnancy Facts Quiz
  • Extra table, Extra chairs
  • And much more I am probably forgetting…

Who is Helping Me: MHH (My handy Hubby- Adam) for some set-up help

Who is NOT Helping Me: Time, I felt like I didn’t have enough of it!

How I Did It: Instead of a length explanation, I’ll have my pictures tell the story…

The Set-Up

For a favor, I set up a “Cravings Corner” where my guests could take home some of my most favorite and most desired candies during this pregnancyimg_8281

They could also nosh on some yummy treats. This is white chocolate puppy chow.chexboysgirlschex

Before this happened…..

IMG_8291.jpgYeah, so I guess the Cheerios Treats were a little heavy and they embarrassingly collapsed about 20 minutes into the party. It didn’t stop anyone from eating them, thankfully!

I also created two quiz games to play with our family to distract them while we got the reveal ready and while we waited for the food.

How I Revealed: 

I bought gender reveal specific smoke bombs on Amazon. Since it was a few days before Halloween, I hollowed out a large pumpkin and painted it half pink and half blue and placed the appropriate colored smoke bomb inside.  The pumpkin served as a centerpiece until it was time for the reveal. We took the pumpkin and our family outside and lit off the bomb!

      I just reposted the link! It was broken for some reason..

      I loved these smoke bombs because they came with two bombs each so just in case one of the bombs was a dud, we’d have a back-up!
