BOW OR BOY: A GENDER REVEAL PARTY!!!

florida family gender reveal

we have a bit of a confession.  ale and i knew known the sex of our baby for about 3 weeks prior to revealing it to our family and friends. it was very difficult for us to keep a secret, but we both wanted to announce the news in a creative way like sam and Jorge did, but we weren’t exactly sure how to let everyone in on the surprise.

we used Tiny Prints in the past to find inspiration for our minimalist bedroom décor and knew that we would be inspired by their custom invites, canvases and party décor to put together an awesome gender reveal party!

after looking through a variety of fun and eye catching options, we were thrilled to find the cutest Bow or Boy gender reveal party invitation. the design was whimsical and so much fun.  it was easy to plan the entire party around the cute bows and mustache theme!

gender reveal ideas^^we also asked our guests to post their votes on a tally chart.  at first it looked like a close match but as the guests started to arrive, it was obvious that everyone was rooting for a little boy^^

gender reveal ideas^^how cool are these napkins???? we wanted to keep our guest guessing and were able to personalize baby “boy” and baby “girl” magenta and teal napkins (find them here).  we kept a few of them around but they’re so cute we’re considering framing them rather than using them :0) ^^

THE REVEAL:

gender reveal idea^^while looking through different canvas options, we came across this DIY metal print and customized it to showcase the “mustache” and one of our favorite bible verses. it worked out perfectly!  we now have a keepsake for our babe’s room that will always remind us of this special day^^

thank you to our family for all of their support, prayers and kindness towards us.  we are so blessed that we are part of your “village”  and that we’re all in this together!

love,

ale and tere
