Colten followed. Daddy played a trick on him and raised the pinata up so he missed the first time ;).
Then, Carson whacked that question mark apart to reveal...
Pink! It's a girl!
All five of us are thrilled! Three boys and one girl. I've never felt more "complete" in my life. I cannot wait for Adlyn Grace join us :). Even though we had triple digit heat, family joined us in one of our local parks to celebrate :).
I went with a yellow and green color palette and a "Bow Ties or Bouquets?" theme. I pulled the decorations from my home, using several vintage pieces that I received from women in my family. I was sure to put this doily at the center because it belonged to Adlyn's namesake, my husband's grandmother (Grace).
I also used a cake stand, vase and tin box from my mother and a napkin holder from my grandmother. For the treats, I made brownies - Oreo and Samoa. I topped each one with a felt rose, bow tie, or heart.
I also made Strawberry Shortcake and Banana Cream Pie in jars. I topped each jar with a circle of patterned paper. I used various yellow designs from DCWV, Crate Paper and Echo Park.
As guests arrived we asked them to choose a bow tie to wear if they thought it was a boy, and a flower to wear if they thought it was a girl. Three people thought boy :). Everyone else voted girl!
Tomorrow I will share how I made the pinata. It was a little time-consuming, but it wasn't hard and I thought it was worth it.
Oh! And I have a winner to reveal! If you left a gender guess on this blog post, I put your name in a hat and pulled: WENDY! Congrats! Please email me at precociouspaper (at) yahoo (dot) com with your contact information and I'll ship some goodies out to you right away :).
Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day! Tessa
