Gender Party: The Details

Pinterest is all the rage these days and it’s a great place to find ideas or get really motivated to throw a cute party. So after lots of pinteresting (is that a word?) I decided to throw a gender party for our new little one!

Baby invite FINAL

I started with the invites and then all of the inspiration came from there! I thought it would be fun to base everything off of bows & mustaches!


Blurred for safety purposes!


The great thing about this party is that it didn’t cost much! I did all of the designs myself so all I needed to do was print! Throw in some balloons, scrapbook paper, ribbon and tissue paper and you have yourself a party!


We had each guest sign their name for team pink or blue. This is a great keepsake to have for the baby book!


I filled jars with candy to create a little party favor!


Thankfully my mom owns a cupcake shop so it was really easy to decide that I wanted to do cupcakes filled with pink or blue! I cut wrappers out of scrapbook paper to add some color to the cupcakes.


The baker also made us these cute Pinterest inspired cookies!


I also filled mason jars with shredded paper and put up little signs around with information or directions.


I kept the food simple with sandwiches, fruit, pasta salad, chips and veggies. I wanted it to be all about the cupcakes!



I thought it would be fun to let everyone guess their names. So I put out pink & blue paper and the guests could write down their guesses and put them in the cones!


I wanted to incorporate a little something for Hudson too. I want to be sure he is included in all of this new baby business and feels important and special. I know it will be a BIG adjustment for him. So for the party it was as simple as putting out some bubbles for he & his friends! Besides trains his next favorite thing is bubbles so it’s a simple way for him to feel included!
