Very cute idea! Coloring the cupcakes is such a neat way to find out!

Congratulations, Erika! Love the idea of surprise reveal with cupcakes. But the Erika's cravings table is the BEST, especially all the bacon! Great party.


Can you share the wording of your invite?

Even after knowing the gender of your baby through the ultra sound i still feel excited as maybe there was something wrong with the machine.

Sure! Here it is:

Long gone are the days when parents and friends find out the gender in the hospital waiting room. Although the wait won't be as long, let's gather around and be surprised together!

Come be the first to know if our little sweetie is a BOY or a GIRL! And...We are going to find out when you do!

Join us in the evening for coffee and sweets, surprises and treats.
Don't be late - we'll cut the cake around 8!

(A little cheesy, we know, but what can we say...it is our first baby! Wear pink or blue to cast your vote for a baby girl or a baby boy!)


Where did you get your shirt??!! I love it!!!

Where did you get your polka dot table cloth? It looks just like my invites and can't fins it anywhere. Thanks! Cute ideas too!

Thank you! The polka dot tablecloth is just wrapping paper from Hobby Lobby. I stretched it out, cut to size, and taped the underside of the paper to the table cloth to hold it in place.

Hi, helping a friend for thier gender reveal party... love your pics and ideas :)
Would you mind sharing how you created your "vote" board and your boy - girl garland? Thank you :)

Artsy Fartsy

Sure! For the poster, I bought chipboard letters and covered them in scrapbooking paper. I glued the letters and the duck (premade and sold at Hobby Lobby) onto a black poster board, used chalk to make the boxes, and found some pink and blue stickers for people to use to vote.

As for the banners, I used more scrapbook paper, slid the tops of the paper into binding tape, and ran a zig-zag stitch across the top. If you don't/can't sew, you can use this tutorial to make a no-sew banner which is just as cute. http://artsyfartsyshopaholic.blogspot.com/2011/04/tutorial-how-to-make-no-sew-paper-flag.html. Good luck and congrats!
