On Gender Reveal Dinners...

Hey hey hey! I'm back today! This past weekend went by soooo quickly as did Monday-Wednesday. I am off Friday-Tuesday and The Boyfriend and I are going up to Door County, WI to relax and spend some time together for a few of those days.

Finally my sis gave me the go ahead to post about the dinner party we had for her on Saturday. She is having a baby!!! I get to be an aunt x 2! Wooo!!!


So since she is extra extra impatient and she wanted to get the test results (to be sure the baby was healthy) as soon as she could she asked for gender as well. So that it would be a surprise her best friend got the results and called me so I could set up the dinner! Soooo, of course, I pinterest the hell out of that shit. and Bam! Here we go...
The prep...I had to fill some 36" balloons w/pink tissue paper! Did this instead of confetti so when they pop it would not just fall to the ground and big clump. 



My messy yet successful "?" gender cupcakes! 


That's pink...my camera is just annoying! 
Some of the food I made! 








The exciting part....the reveal! 

Of course they weren't looking...



Their reactions were hilarious! My sister was sooo excited and even though dad was too..he needed a moment to accept that he was going to be a dad to a little girl! 

Some more random pics from the night! 









We bought these fun stickers "Team Pink" and "Team Blue" from Amazon with a tally board and everyone who came in had to pick a sticker. Obviously I didn't pick one which drove them nuts until the reveal! In the end we had more "Team Blue" votes and well...they were wrong! 

It was a great evening, my sister was super happy and we are all soooo excited for the newest member to hurry up and join us!!
