Gender Reveal Party

Back on March 9th we had our Gender Reveal Party to announce the gender of our sweet baby girl.

The greatest friends I could ask for.  Alison, on the left, we met a couple years ago and have been pretty close ever since.  She has a sweet little boy who is going to be just a year older then Chloe will be.  Can you say Future boyfriend/girlfriends? ;)

Taylor, on the right, we met through blogging about a year ago when she moved down here.  She is such a sweet girl.  She helped me plan this entire party. I couldn't have done it without her help.

My sweet sister in law and I.  The best sister I could seriously ask for.  We have became much closer over the past few months and I love it!  She came over the other night and helped her brother, my husband, paint the nursery :)

Taylor and I.  You might recognize her from The Presuttis Blog.  Taylor made the cake for our party and did such an amazing job! 

My Sweet daddy.  He was sporting the pink and blue for the day.  Team Pink & Team Blue! 

We set up a black dry erase board for everyone write down there guesses of girl or boy.  We chose the names Roman for a boy and Chloe for a girl.  Each person was the write there name underneath their guess of the gender.  Im so glad we did this.  I loved seeing who guessed what!

Mom and I made these mustaches and bows for everyone to wear at the party to show their guess of the Team Pink or Team Blue! 

All of the yummy food.

Pink & Blue Lemonade, Wine and Sweet tea.  Pink & Blue paper straws.

I absolutely loved our cake.  Super yummy.

We also had publix make cup cakes for the party for all of the guests.  We did the cake so that we could have something to cut into for the reveal.  The cupcakes also had a pink butter cream filling.

Our set up outside for everyone to sit, eat, and drink.  

Cutting the cake for the Reveal!

The Gender Reveal was so much fun and we couldn't have asked for a better turn out.  All of our important friends and family were invited and we all had a wonderful time.  We cannot wait for Chloe Dean to make her arrival in July. <3
