It's a...

As promised, here are all of the details from our Gender Reveal Party this weekend. I didn't get any photos but thankfully our moms did. We had about 30 people at our house on Saturday and it was such a busy day that flew by way too fast. You can check out this post to see more details and photos too.
The Voting Table
This was the chalkboard about half way through the party. As you can see the majority voted for boy. The sign on the table says "We (a picture of a mustache) you a question: Boy or Girl? Choose a mustache or a bow" There were adhesive mustaches and pink bow pins in the glass jars in front. The frame to the right has our most recent sonogram photos in it.
The Invitation
designed by my husband and I

The Cake
Vanilla Cake with Colored Buttercream Filling & Whipped Icing

HERsHEy's Bars
Complete with carefully colored in pink "her" and blue "he"

Under the Vine
We set up all of the plates, napkins, cups, and food under the grape vine and had  other tables set up outside of the vine as well.
What was on the menu? Tortellini Skewers with Pesto dipping sauce, Italian Pasta Salad, Bruschetta, lots of cookies, and Faux Champagne Punch

Handing the Knife Off 
Making the Much Anticipated Cut

...and it's PINK! 
It's a GIRL!

For those of you wondering yes, we wore pink on purpose because we both felt it was a girl. I promise we didn't peek either- We took the envelope straight from the appointment to the bakery.

We are so excited, beyond excited actually. I can't wait to start shopping for all things pink and girly. This little girl is in for some serious accessorizing because her momma is as girly as it gets.

  2. I've been waiting for this post - yay! Thanks for sharing - so excited for your mini-Schnelle on the way!

    Old wives tales for the win - as soon as I saw your mini-bump I knew it was a girl LOL (apparently with girls you just get a bump but look the same, with a boy - there is swelling everywhere, including the face)

    1. That's so funny that you said that because that's what my husband is calling her too! You are so right about the old wives tales, almost all of them pointed to girl! It's so true! My mom looked the same as I do when she was pregnant with me but with my brothers she was a lot bigger.

  3. I'm so excited for you! I have TWO boys and all I wanted was a little girl...not that I would trade my boys for anything! We're going to try for one more and NOT find out until the day! I love this idea though...I wish we would of done it for my youngest. Can't wait to see the cute little bows and skirts!

    1. Thanks so much! Did you find out the gender with both boys? OMG the anticipation would kill me but then I guess it gives you an extra little something to look forward to when you're in labor too! There will be lots of bows, tutus, ruffles, polka dots at girlyness coming and I'll share it all on my blog- don't worry!
