Our Gender Reveal Party - Ideas, Supplies & Decor


 Shane and I are so excited to share that we will be welcoming a baby BOY in December 2020. We were completely shocked and surprised by this as both of us thought it was a girl up until Sunday! Regardless, we are overjoyed with excitement and can't wait to welcome little man to the family. As you can see, Shane is so excited he actually looks like he just won the Masters, ha! I have to say, this was hands down one of the most special days of both of our lives and we are so happy we chose to keep it a true surprise & host a reveal with our closest friends and family. Shane described this day as pure "euphoria", and for me - there are no words to describe the feeling I felt in this moment other than pure joy. Our doctor called us 10 days prior to this moment with the results of our blood test and I quickly handed the phone to a girlfriend of mine who kept this secret lock and key! 






You don't think he was team boy, do you? Haha! I had lots of questions about party decor, vendors we used and who coordinated everything so I thought I'd give the links to everything a permanent place to live here in case you're considering a similar event of your own.

As for coordination:  I did it myself. Parties are so fun, but let me tell you - they are a TON of work. Meryl and John, and my friend Andrea, extended a helping hand to set up and run a few errands which I felt really grateful for but outside of that I planned and coordinated everything on my own. I would recommend getting started with the planning process about a month in advance as certain items take awhile to ship and that way you aren't stressing out last minute about items that didn't make it in time.

 Cotton Candy - Party City

Vendors

Cake & Donuts - Suarez Bakery 
Balloon installation - Confetti Castle

We are beyond thankful for all the well wishes, sweet comments, and love this baby boy has already been showered with. December can't come soon enough! Thank you for letting me share these special moments with you, our hearts are so full. 

You can view our reveal video here (Shanes reaction in real time is worth the view, ha!).

*Something worth noting - due to the current state of our country, we opted to purchase an infrared thermometer and scanned each persons temperature prior to letting them out back at the advice of our doctor. The entire event was held outdoors, and hand sanitizer was given to everyone throughout the party.

  14. Being a working parents is really tough for the children. They do not get enough attention of yours. You should get the Childcare Great Western. They are offering very good services and early education within a warm environment.
