|Beau or Bow?!|
This has been such an exciting time for me and my husband. And while the health of our baby has always been our first priority, when we were informed of the gender by our doctor I was elated to share the news with my family and close friends in a very special way. I planned an intimate brunch with a fun surprise to end the gathering and spill the beans.
We brunched on a simple menu of mini croissants, quiche, mini strawberry parfaits, mini cinnamon rolls, and lemonade and I decided to go with a black and white theme with fun details sprinkled throughout.
I've been practicing my calligraphy every chance I get (see here) so this party was the perfect opportunity to create some quick and easy tent cards, which added a fun and personal touch to the party.
When it came time to reveal the gender, each guest received a confetti popper I made from cake pop holders and confetti. We held a countdown and all at once, the group popped their poppers, PINK confetti fluttering throughout the room! I will share the DIY on this later! :)
All our guests left with itty-bitty succulent party favors my mom planted in mini terra-cotta pots. The succulents were all taken from the larger plants in her garden and we carried out the black and white theme with a simple washi tape flag.
Coming up with all the plans and working on all the little details for our gender reveal party was so much fun, but definitely a lot of work, even for as simple a brunch as this! (I planned this party on a whim, did everything in about a week and felt completely exhausted afterwards!!) With that said, it was totally worth it to share our news in such a fun and special way. xo
