Gender Reveal Party

I love the baby shower hot trend theme of gender reveal parties! I really wish this theme was "in" when I was pregnant. Many gender reveal parties color palettes are blue and pink. However, I love this party uses a baby gender neutral color of orange. Even the parents didn't know what the sex of the baby was. They took the ultrasound results straight to the baker without looking at it! So the cake would either be blue or pink. (I don't have that much self control- I would have peeked at results or licked off all the icing to see what color the cake was!)
Budget friendly use of scrapbook paper for place mats. I'm loving that that the mom to be mixed up the papers just kept them all in the same color palette. The tissue pom pom napkin rings really makes the table pop plus keeps everything looking cohesive.

Details are the difference between a good party and a great one. I love the orange sugared champagne flutes for the milk.

Love, love, love the photo garland made from the progression of ultrasound photos.

Must have a voting station at a gender reveal party! What a great surprise for all when mom and dad cut open the cake to see what gender their baby will be! In this case it was a girl-the parents to be had already selected a name for a girl and boy so they also revealed the name of the child to guests. How perfect!

If you follow Maddycakes Muse on Facebook, then you are aware that Maddycakes had a full weekend. Between having events and me and Maddy not feeling well, I have gotten behind so will have to keep you in suspense a little longer for the Easter/Spring Contest details!!
