Party Details!

Hope everybody had a great weekend.  I received our gender reveal pictures in the mail on Saturday from Jax, and I could not wait to share the details with you.  Get ready for “Cute as a Button” picture overload!  If you missed the big reveal, you read more about it here.

Katie-3eI ordered the mason jars from Amazon. All bakers twine, buttons, and paper straws are from Etsy.


Katie-9eWater bottle labels from Daphne, who also helped with the invitations
 

Katie-11eThis is the Old Wives’ Tales Predictions I was telling you about.  As you can see, any of the predictions that guessed girl, was backed by pink paper and accessorized with pink buttons.  The same went for the boy guesses.  I got the frame, jute, and mini clothes pins from Hobby Lobby!


Katie-55eI made an ultrasound button garland to go on our mantle.


Katie-29eI included some pregnancy pictures on my Burlap and Barnyard Trio picture frames.  I love how easy it is to change pictures!!


Katie-30eDerek spray painted all the mason jars, which we obviously used for flower vases, with metallic gold spray paint.  He did such a great job if I must say so!


Katie-31eFront door sign


Ribbet collageeWe had buttons (ordered from Etsy) to indicate everybody’s guesses.
 

Katie-104eHere is Brittany marking her guess as a girl…she was correct :)


Katie-41eOur food spread…pulled pork, chicken salad, broccoli and cauliflower salad, macaroni salad, and fruit.  Have to mention Allison again for that adorable burlap banner! 


Katie-59eWe tried out the Pinterest idea of tying balloons to golf tees and then sticking them in the grass.  Success! 


Katie-106eAll the people who thought it was a boy!


Katie-107eAnd all the people who thought it was a girl….Derek and I managed to sneak in this photo


cupcakeseditThe delicious cupcakes from Sweetly Wild!  We had cookies & cream icing and cream cheese icing with a traditional vanilla cupcake.  If it was a girl, the middle was filled with a strawberry puree/cool whip combination and if it was a boy, the middle was a blueberry puree/cool whip combo.


Katie-127eIt’s a girl!!


A big thank you to everybody who came.  It was such an exciting day!! Thanks again Jax for the wonderful pictures!!

Your party details were perfection! Love the chalkboard idea and cupcake looks delish, great job mama to be! :-)

Anne said...

Cannot wait to hear more about this! The photos turned out so great - love the ones of you two holding the banner with ultrasound pics. They'll be so sweet to include in the baby's photo album. And the theme/decorations are so fun. I love that everything looks so cute but still pretty low key and fun - what a great time to spend with family & friends. Delicious looking cupcakes are always a major plus :)
