Baby C's Gender Reveal Party!

I was so honored when Sami Jo asked me to be her 'event planner' for Baby C's Gender Reveal Party! SJ and I were busy planning for a couple months. The invitations, food, decor, and cake turned out perfect. Most of the decor, actually 97% was handmade :) Enjoy the following pics from the party!

Here's a pic of the super cute invites created by a local stationary shop in town. When SJ and I went to order them, it was really special because the same family who owns this shop did ALL of SJ's wedding invites, bridal shower invites, etc and NOW they were able to share in another chapter of SamiJo's life! We are already thinking about 1st Birthday invites!
This bottle door sign was one of the few special things I made for SJ! It's made out of burlap and is stuffed to give it some 'oomph'..however this isn't the best pic of it, so much cuter in person! The top was scrunched and not ready for pics ;)
The following banner i've seen on Etsy and pinterest and decided I'd try my hand at making my own with the cricut...and that's just what I did!
Here's some more of the decor and also some of the food! Notice the fruit watermelon holder?? Its a BABY CARRIAGE! Another one of those Pinterest ideas I decided to try!
The menu was low key and had mini foods like mini cheeseballs, chik-fil-a chicken nuggets, spinach dip in a bread bowl, and veggies!

These are my FAVORITE!! Personalized water bottle labels from TheDIGIButterflyPRTY on ETSY!

The guests were asked to wear the pink or blue based on their thoughts of what they hoped Baby C would be! When they arrived, they also had to wear lips (for a girl) or a mustache (for a boy)! Inbetween chatting and eatting guests were asked to fill out ADVICE cards for the parents to be and a WISHES card for Baby C. These were like fill-in-the blank/mad-lib type cards. Totally didn't take a pic of that! :(

It's a BOY!!!
Here's the FIRST PICS of when Baby C's grandparents found out their FIRST grandchild is a baby BOY!

Family Pics!

I AM SO THRILLED for this sweet family and the arrival of Baby Rob! I can't wait to be his 'Aunt' Lindsay and spoil him like crazy!!!
The guests left with a 'sweet' treat for sharing this "sweet" moment the this precious family! The baby carriage is actually a family heirloom! Makes things super special!

Have a blessed and fabulous week!
