Our Gender Reveal Party

Our secret to be reveal in this cake!

Our biggest investment was the cake professionally made by Hillcrest Bakery in Bothell. I would highly recommend using them. I had a set idea that I wanted in that the gender color candy was to be in the middle of the cake and they worked with me beautiful. I loved how it turned out.

I then did all the other decorations by myself. Most of it was DIY. My mom helped making the pom poms when she was visiting a couple weeks earlier. But the whole house was decorated. I had games for our guests to play and plenty of food. It was an exciting day.

When you entered the house you had to chose if you thought I was having a boy or girl. I listed our the old wives tales and which way I leaned above the stickers.

All had to choose! Girl was chosen the most. Probably because that was what I wanted.

Girl was the most voted for and I think that was due to the fact that is what I told all our guests that I wanted. So they went with mother’s intuition. My husband was a little sad because he was voting for a boy.

Choose the Birth Date Game and name suggestions

I had two other games for the guests to participate in. The first was picking what day you thought the baby would be born on. There was a small amount of coins to put in an envelope for the winner. And the other game was to give name suggestions for both a boy or girl. We got some great ones but no one chose the name we landed on.

The table where we would learn what we would have!

We had a set time of 2:45pm to find out the gender because we had family skyping in to see. Our skype family included my mom, my brother and his wife, my in-laws, one of Rob’s aunt and cousins, and Rob’s good friend and his wife. And then we had a whole room of friends that joined us to celebrate. We felt honored for all who showed up to support us.

It was a wonderful celebration. And we were now looking forward to meeting our son in 20 weeks. A blessing from our Lord.
