throwing a baby gender reveal party

Or 'sex party', whichever sounds more fun to you.

A few weeks ago, my husband and I went in for our 'big' ultrasound, where the technician did, indeed, determine the baby's gender "without a doubt." We like announcing the news to everyone at one time, so this time we threw a little movie & popcorn reveal to celebrate.

Not only were the refreshments & decor kept really simple, but totally budget-friendly as well. I think I spent less than $25 total, and we had a houseful! (Of course, it helped to do this after dinner.)

PINK & BLUE everything!

That heart banner is made with about 50 cents worth of felt.

We displayed our name contenders, and guests added to the list throughout the night. It got pretty funny. (Yes, we are obviously going with a 4th 'C'!)

I tied pink and blue ribbons onto clothespins, so everybody could wear their predictions before the big announcement.

We had already told the two big kids the news, but not our youngest, Camden. I used my mom's cool idea of drawing a pink or blue heart in a sealed envelope and letting her open it. So, in front of the whole family, she got to peek and announce:

BLUE!!!!

Oh BOY! And here he is:

Do you have any creative or fun ideas for announcing the sex of your baby?
