Gender Reveal Brunch

 
My aunt and uncle are expecting their 1st baby in September!
I wanted to do something special and memorable for the gender reveal, something so much more personal than just calling family and friends to tell them what it is.
They loved the idea and couldn't be more thrilled.
 
I went to the Dr's appointment with them and told the sonographer what was going on. She made sure to turn the monitor away from them, put the gender sonogram picture in a sealed envelope, and handed it to me.
 
I based the party on the colors pink, blue, and green with a rustic vibe.
I first made the invited using a background I found online.
 
 
 
Then I made a background using wood and painted it to match the invites... it turned out so perfect!
 
 


 
 
The brunch menu consisted of a waffle bar, yogurt parfaits, quiche, chicken on a biscuit bites, cheesy potatoes, coconut cake, chocolate milk, milk, punch, and coffee.
 
















 
The centerpieces were green, blue, and pink hydrangeas in a mason jar.
The favors were baby food jars topped with a tiny baby and filled with pink, blue, and green candy.
 

 
Everything turned out so perfect!
We are so blessed to soon welcome a new baby into the family. I am so happy that I was able to create something so special for them, they are an amazing and deserving couple.
 
By the way.... IT'S A BOY!!!

Playroom Inspiration Board

 
 
I am working on creating a playroom for my daughter. The inspiration came after I found a tutorial on Pinterest for tissue paper flowers. I made them for our Easter lunch and I loved them so much I wanted to use them some where in the house. What better place for something so whimsical than in a girls playroom:) The room will be mostly DIY. I plan to make the bookcase, table and chairs, curtains, and storage crates. I am so excited to get started on this project and can't wait to share the finished room with you.
