We had one of the most memorable weekends…finding out if we are having a boy or girl in September! This is all new to us since we didn’t find out with Luke and loved that. This time, we thought we’d do something a little different and have a gender reveal party! We had our big ultrasound a week before the party and the ultrasound tech printed a picture with “it’s a boy or girl” on it and we put it in a sealed envelope to give to our baker. She made a cake for us with either pink or blue icing and we cut into the cake on Saturday with friends and family (near and far…lots of webcam/facetime was also involved for the fam back in London and across the USA!). It was a fantastic day and a magical moment for us to share with everyone! We were absolutely SHOCKED, thrilled and surprised to find out what we were having! Enjoy the pictures, videos and all the links to some great Etsy shops who donated some amazing things for the party!
For anything party related I turn to Etsy – you can get everything you need there! There were two invites I LOVED for the party:
This invite was done by Kiyomi Designs and she was fabulous to work with! She will personalize anything for you and it printed so adorable!
Check out her Etsy shop HERE. You will find the most adorable, unique, custom designed invitations, cards, business logos, and other fun items for birthday parties, baby showers, holidays, and special events that can be personalized to help make your special occasion memorable.
What I loved about this was that it came with an entire printable collection for a Honeybee Gender Reveal Party! All of the other printables I had came from this collection and they came out looking fantastic! Keep scrolling to see all the other adorable things included in this collection!

I had such a fantastic Mother’s Day yesterday with my boys and I had planned to take my mom out for tea (more on this later!) so after we celebrated the big news over some tea and a wonderful lunch we went shopping for the baby girl! It was the first time shopping on the GIRLS side of the store and let me tell you we were thrilled to buy some PINK! I’m so glad we found out early to give us all time to adjust to the idea of a little girl!
