Blue or Pink Themed Gender Reveal

Family+ friends+ fun+ food+ finding out the gender...

It sounds like a recipe for a great day, right?  It was!  Melina's DIY gender reveal party was fabulous and full of awesome ideas!  Let's start with the entry wreath.

I used a large embroidery hoop and two tutus as the fluffy base for this statement piece.  Tutorial coming soon!

The Cravings Table

Melina hand-dipped several sweets in blue and pink to create a fabulous focal point.

We divided the table in half with a blue and a pink side.

I made a quick banner for above the cravings table:

I can't wait to share the tutorial for this banner; it's a no-glue project!

The cravings table was a party fave.  Melina's chocolate dipping skills are on point and the treats were a hit!  Parallel to the cravings table, we set-up the cake table.

The Cake Table

Melina's mom painted a frame in each color and asked guests to sign the mat on the frame whose color coordinated with their guess.  The cake was front, center and super cute!  I made the cake topper using two straws, card stock, stickers and mini paper clips.

The cake was equally as cute and delish as it appears!

Wall Decor

In addition to poms and a voting board, I was very pleased with the engineering print of one of the images from our mini shoot (engineering print = a large print that cost less than $3 at Staples).

I was also most impressed by the family tree feature wall!

The above photo shows how much wall space it covered, it was huge!

Melina made a family tree for each of the parents-to-be and connected the two with a framed print of the sonogram photos.  Can you believe the set of three large trees was less than $30?!

The Tables

Candelabras, color-coordinated candles and table scatter made for the perfect centerpieces!  The decor set the tone for a fabulous event and the parents were so appreciative!  So, what do you think? Is she having a boy or girl?
