In case you missed this post, we’re so excited to welcome our second baby in December! We went back and forth with the idea of having a gender reveal party for the second baby, but we knew our second was our last. We didn’t want to look back on all the pictures we did for Ava and have nothing for #2. You can see our first gender reveal party here.
After looking at a few themes and with the help of our daughter who loves a certain song, we went with the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star theme. Ellie and Piper has some ADORABLE items we picked out and used around the house.
Sean and I are the worst at keeping a secret or having a secret held from us. We will literally ask a million questions until we figure it out. Needless to say, we both knew the gender and wanted to surprise our family.
We’re in the process of selling our house, so we didn’t go too crazy with the decorations. If you’ve been through this process, then you totally get it! We had people asking Ava throughout the whole party to see if she’d spill the beans. Luckily, this girl can keep a secret better than her parents!
We decided to do Confetti and Smoke Cannons from Poof There It Is. Their Etsy shop has gender reveal ideas for so many different occasions.
SO MANY of our family members thought we were having a boy, so we knew we had to throw them off somehow.
But ultimately, they found out we were having a little BOY!! (so they were right!)
Of coarse Ava got scared (didn’t really think that one out) so if you have a toddler, know they might get scared by the pop sound!
Thank you to our family who came out to celebrate! We love y’all so much!
