This is one of the best ideas ever, and I can't wait to do it when I get pregnant one day:) My good friend
So the basic idea is this: have your ultrasound, put the pictures of the ultrasound (which have the gender on them) in a sealed envelope. Take the envelope to a bakery, and have them bake you a cake - a cake with blue icing inside if it's a boy, and pink if it's a girl. Throw a party. Cut the cake, and find out along with your friends and family what the gender of the baby is!
How fun is that? I'm definitely doing that one day:) I was more than happy to stop by the party and snap some photos....I mean lets be honest, I wanted to find out the gender when everyone else did!
April was such a little party planner, so get ready for a bunch of details. First up, the guessing station - every guest held up a sign that either said boy or girl, based on what your guess was, then snapped a polaroid of yourself:
That's my photo in the top right:) I think I counted 15 "boy" guesses, and 1 "girl" guess:
She even set up this super cute lemonade station:
Guests brought both boy and girl gifts, depending on the reveal.....and how gorgeous is that cake? They made sure you couldn't see the inside icing until the cake was cut:)
Definitely the funniest gift of the day - those are sperm and egg stuffed animals:)
Time to cut the cake!!
IT'S A GIRL!!! Almost everyone in the room (including April and Kevin) thought it was a boy, so it was a big shock when we saw the pink icing inside! I totally teared up, stuff like this gets me every time:)
April's mom was so excited:)
Let the baby girl gifts begin:
Now they could FINALLY look at the ultrasound pictures!
Then we ran down the street for a few quick maternity shots:
Is this the perfect dress on her or what?
Congrats guys!! I was so happy to be there to document everything for ya:) Can't wait to meet the baby girl!
