Gender Reveal Party Part III

April 21, 2010

Amy and Travis really wanted the party to be celebration with family and close friends.  They didn’t want people to bring presents or have to worry about prizes and games.  So Amy asked me for a way to keep the guests occupied while they mingled and waited for the cake to be cut. 

I thought it would be really fun to have a photobooth set up with some props and boy or girl was it a hit! 

We even had fun setting it up.

This is team “Genital Reveal”.  Haha. Oh, nursing students… what can you do?

Evalie made up signs for the photobooth for “team boy” and “team girl”.  Which really played up the competition for who was right about the gender.

The photobooth was a hit.  We got some pretty amazing photos out of it too.  Here are just a few of my favorites from the day. 

This one is most definitely my favorite from the entire day:

Happy Wednesday!

I’ll be taking off for the rest of the week in preparation of finals.  So, I’ll do my best to blog next week as well.

Happy EARLY weekend, too!

Gender Reveal Party Part II

April 20, 2010

Okay, I know you’re all dying to find out what the baby is and how Amy and Travis decided to show everyone, so here we go!

Evalie, Amy’s best friend, came with them to the ultrasound and found out the baby’s gender.  Evalie then made this amazing cake (let me tell you right now, this fondant was AMAZING– and I hate fondant.  I’ll post the recipe soon).   

Evalie was told to make the color of the actual cake the either pink or blue based on the gender that was given to her by the technician.  Then Amy and Travis would cut into the cake, lift up a piece and find out in front of all their family and close friends, what they were having. We were all very anxious to find out!

Evalie even made some blue and pink cupcakes for all of us to enjoy.

After some good food and photo booth fun (more on that tomorrow), we all headed to see the cake cutting. 

Here’s a little photo session of how it happened:

It’s a GIRL!!!!
