Since we’re back from our trip from North Carolina we are finally getting a chance to share with family and friends what our little baby is going to be tomorrow at our gender reveal party. I’ve had 3 days to finalize everything after being gone 2 1/2 weeks so I’m sorry for the lack in post today.
This is kind of a new thing so I’m not sure what all to expect. I’m doing appetizers and cocktails which I’m sure like always I’ll go overboard with, but I would rather have more then enough than not enough food. It’s more of a come and go kind of thing. Once we have enough people there we’ll reveal what the baby is going to be and then I’m sure do tours of the baby’s room with what we have done already. I’ll have a post with all the pictures from the party and a new recipe I’m trying on Monday, November 26th. Sorry for the delay, but you’ll have to wait to find out what we’re having! If you gotta know sooner, be sure to follow me on Twitter and I’ll announce it tomorrow!
I will share our party favors with you. I went to Sam’s Club and bought a couple boxes of Hershey bars and colored in the HE and SHE. This took a little longer then I thought it would, but I wanted to share a couple tips I learned. Don’t use a highlighter, the color is nice, but it wipes right off no matter how long you let it sit. For the right color I went with the regular red Sharpie and the pastel blue Sharpie. The regular blue came out really dark. I’ll share the final product with my party post, but I colored each candy bar with the blue He and the red she colored in on each on. Didn’t wanna give it away by just coloring one before we announced.
Hope you have a great weekend!
