As I get closer and close to that 20 week mark in the pregnancy it all starts to become more real. I still can't believe that in two and a half weeks we will know if this little peanut it a boy or a girl. It's been a struggle to walk through any store Target and not purchase every adorable baby item they have. But until I know whether I should be buying firefighter outfits or princess dresses, I'll stick to just window shopping. But let's be honest, no matter if this little one is a boy or a girl, they are definitely going to get some fire themed items. #firewifefirelife
We decided that we wanted to find out what we were having with our closest friends and family. Even though our ultrasound is Friday April 10th, we will be waiting to find out with everyone until Sunday the 12th, thanks a lot fireman who has to work on Saturday! I can hold out one more day . . . I just need to keep telling myself that.
So to keep myself from buying endless amounts of adorable baby clothes, I'm just buying stuff for our gender reveal instead. At least I held back in one area! I'm hoping to use some of the same decorations that I used last year for our friend's gender reveal we hosted, but add a few new touches as well.
We decided on this invite from SunshineParties because we felt like it fit our love for mason jars and overall style perfectly! I'm going for a sort of rustic, blue and pink and springy feel for the party. I don't want to buy a ton of items that can't be used again and since it's a lunch time get together, we are going for a BBQ casual atmosphere. Here's my inspiration board for the party, most of it can be found on Pinterest, but pictures are so much more fun . . .
Cowboy & Cowgirl Cookie Gifts - I love the idea of having a party favor to give everyone and this idea just seemed so cute to me. I love mason jars and incorporated them into the invite, so this may just be the favor we use at the party.
Doughnut Holes - I mean what pregnant gal doesn't love a reason to have a doughnut!
Rustic Blue and Pink party decor will hopefully add to the celebration but still fit in with the rest of the house and not feel TOO much like a baby shower.
The Best Punch Recipe Ever - I have been dying to try this ever since I pinned it, so I'm hoping it's a hit with our guests.
Flower Mason Jar Lids - These we used at Molly Mesnick's 2nd birthday party for her daughter and I just loved the look so I bought these on Amazon to add to the mason jar theme.
Watermelon - I've always loved melon and have been known to eat and entire one in a sitting, and being pregnant has only added to my fruit addiction so having a fun fruit display not only pleases my tummy but hopefully our guests as well!
I made both the chalkboard prints myself on PicMonkey and had them printed on a poster board through Walgreens. I'm hoping it will be a fun addition to let people guess whether they think Baby Boyes is a boy or girl.
So while I'm going broke over here trying to plan the perfect party . . . I figured it was as good a time as any to offer you a hefty amount of cash. Makes sense right?
hefty to the tune of $170 in PayPal cash. you bet.
