Under The Sea Baby Shower

We hope that everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July Holiday! Today we are delighted to share this Whimsical Under the Sea Baby Shower from Jen of Woolston & Grace Weddings. This gender-neutral event is full of so many wonderful details including custom invitations, fresh picked Hydrangea centerpieces, colorful linens + placesettings and coordinating decor {see below for the adorable onesie banner and framed whale print}. Guests enjoyed a catered luncheon meal with homemade punch and a custom whale cake for dessert. There were fun games and activities for the guests to enjoy and everyone left with a mini whale soap given as favors. 

The glass bottles used for drinks were Starbucks Frappuccino bottles that were emptied and cleaned with new “Sweet baby Woolston” stickers were added.

A Gender Neutral Beach Baby Shower

We are beyond excited to share this Sea Breeze Gender Neutral Baby Shower with you today thanks to our friends at Anders Ruff Designs. They have put together a truly AMAZING event full of inspirational ideas and DIY touches. It all started with a color palette of mint, aqua, lime + yellow and a menu that included simple, yet beautiful desserts and finger foods. The decor is beyond gorgeous and I just love all of the little details that were incorporated - especially the use of yarn to make the Pom Bunting and Flowers as well as an added decoration to the wrapped gifts. The menu consisted of  homemade fancy desserts mixed with store bought basics that were easily embellished. Guest favors included homemade baby pickles in glass baby food jars and M&M candies displayed in antique spice rack with old glass spice jars. All of the coordinating printables were designed by Anders Ruff and are available for purchase {here}. Images by Becca Bond Photography.

He or She - What will it be?

Today's lovely Gender Reveal celebration comes to us from Christina Clark Events. Christina shares the details of the event...{I planned and styled a gender revealing party to celebrate this adorable couple welcoming their first baby girl to their family. The couple wanted to make the revealing of their baby’s gender an exciting celebration for all their loved ones. The  shower was filled with special handcrafted creations, including an adorable gender revealing cake and mini cupcakes. From the custom designed paper goods to the baby booties cake topper, the details of the décor were absolutely perfect. The theme was tied together with oversized balloon-shaped baby bottles, gorgeous linens, and pretty Tiffany inspired boxes filled with soft pink dahlias arrangements.  Guests enjoyed delectables off of the delicious menu from The Herb Box along with a champagne bar and yummy dessert table filled with sweet treats.}

Gender Reveal Celebration: Ties or Tutu's?

Today we have a lovely Gender Reveal Celebration to share thanks to Laura's Little Party. Since this was going to be the fourth {and last} child for Laura and her family, she thought it would be fun to style a Ties or Tutu's themed event for family and friends to reveal the gender of their baby to be. She started with a color palette of yellow + gray and with the help of some super talented vendors, created a lovely event full of fantastic food, delicious desserts and delightful decor. I really love how creatively the food was displayed using mason jars for the mixed greens, ice cream cones for the chicken salad and coordinating paper boxes for the veggies. The dessert table was made from a refurbished dresser and the backdrop was filled with yellow, white and gray paper fans to match the color scheme. Guests had an amazing selection of cupcakes, cookies, cake pops, chocolate covered pretzels, marshmallow pops and a GORGEOUS cake that revealed the baby's gender... A BOY! Many thanks to Laura for sharing this special event with our readers today and best wishes to her family!

A Gender Reveal Photo Shoot | Saratography

Today's sweet Gender Reveal Photo Shoot comes to us from Saratography, one of my local {and favorite} photographers. I love the idea of a gender reveal session as its a great way to share the news with family and friends while having an everlasting keepsake of that special time. Sara has since been in touch to say that this lovely couple welcomed their little one just a few weeks ago and everyone is doing very well. Thanks also go out to Compliments for the balloons for this session.

"It's Time" Gender Reveal Party

Today's "It's Time" Gender Reveal Event was designed and styled by Adam and Lyndsey Taylor of LuLu's for their very own BIG announcement. They were looking to design a unique and modern event that would also involve their other three children. Lyndsey states "As I researched ideas, I began to envision a modern clock theme and thought it would be amazing for a cuckoo clock to chime and our kids to rush to see the cuckoo bird deliver them a slip of paper that would tell them if it was a boy or a girl. I was beyond thrilled when I discovered a DIY tutorial on a website for a mock cuckoo clock. We had a close friend that was the only one to know the surprise clip the paper to the clock. A very loud cuckoo clock recording did indeed interrupt our soiree and our oldest son rushed to pull the slip of paper off the clock and scream the results to our guests". What a great way to share this news! I LOVE the color palette of {turquoise + gold} and all of the lovely details that were incorporated into this event - not to mention all of those delicious desserts!
