Come Find out if Little Pumpkin is a BOY or a GIRL today on the blog with all the details of how we revealed the gender to our family and friends.
So any last minute guesses whether our Little Pumpkin is a BOY or a GIRL? *About a month ago, I announced that Mark and I are pregnant. I also shared details of how we found out and how my first trimester went. Be sure to check out those posts HERE as well if you haven’t already.
Before the appointment, I really didn’t have any kind of intuition or guess what Pumpkin is. I was just so grateful and thankful that I am pregnant. Mark didn’t have a preference either. On the way to the ultrasound appointment, we were both just so nervous with anticipation and excitement. We couldn’t believe the big day was finally here. As we sat there waiting for the ultrasound, it felt as if our hearts were going to literally pound of our chests. I really don’t think I have ever seen Mark quite that nervous. I kept asking him if he was okay and to calm down because usually he is the one that is calming me down. I think all the anticipation was just bubbling over that we couldn’t contain it anymore.
I wasn’t sure that I was going to have a big party for the reveal at first but then the more we talked and planned, I got more excited. Mark kept telling me I would regret it if I didn’t so I’m so glad we did it. I definitely would have regretted it. We were able to have the party outside on our porch and in the yard with a fire pit and patio heaters to keep everyone warm. I used pastel pink and aqua blue with pops of fall colors and pumpkins throughout since it was around Fall. Plus we kept calling Baby “Pumpkin” so it only seemed right.
When guests arrived, I had the small table you see above with 2 bowls with pink and blue pumpkins for them to pin to their shirt for their guess. In case you are wondering about the pig, my in-laws gave us that pig when we had several outdoor BBQs. We had BBQ for the party so of course I had to bring out the pig. I think it’s just too cute.
Now as far as the actual reveal, we thought long and hard and searched on Pinterest for any unique ideas. Mark found an idea playing a dart game to get all the guests involved. The idea he found was so fun to see everyone’s excitement too. We just took a piece of plywood and nailed black balloons to it. Then guests would take turns trying to pop the balloons thinking that only one balloon had either pink or blue confetti in it for the big reveal. Little did they know, all the balloons were empty.
We had went to Party City earlier that day and had them blow up a ginormous balloon that we found at Walmart in a kit. The kit came with pink and blue confetti as well. I had no clue the balloon was going to be as big as it was. Everyone in the store was staring at the front because the helium was so loud. Then everyone wanted to know if we knew what the gender is.
Thank goodness we drove our SUV that day because we didn’t think it would fit inside the back. Thank goodness it did. I just kept saying how I hope it didn’t pop all of a sudden.
Getting it in the house was also interesting but it fit just perfectly.
Now once all the balloons had been popped, we walked inside and brought all this HUGE balloon to reveal the gender. So after all that rambling from me, we are having a…
Mark and I are thrilled and overjoyed. I am so excited to hold my little baby boy in my arms and to see Mark holding his son. What a blessing it will be!
We have already been buying lots of goodies and enjoyed those incredible sales and deals during the Black Friday season. His little bedroom is starting to come together as well which is so much fun.
