hello friends new and old! welcome! i'm so glad you stopped by today because i'm sharing a really fun post that's all about

gender reveals!

 a new trend that has recently taken grasp of our modern day society and taken pinterest by storm! 

a few weeks ago, anchor holly menino, of channel 2 KUTV news, asked if i would do a segment for them showcasing three different ways to reveal the gender of a baby (which i shared live on their morning news...THIS MONRING! if you missed it, i'll share a link later on this week!)  clearly, i couldn't just leave it at that!  so, in honor of my inner party animal, i decided to team up with my favorite photographer katie dudley and also put together a mock gender reveal party that any of you could easily do at home.

currently loving anything that has a french vibe, i created this, "Oui, Oui! It's a Bebe!" gender reveal party.  and, though i'm all for the colors blue and pink, i strayed from making those my main color pallet for this event and instead stuck with a mostly black and white color scheme with pops of gold and other variating hues.  combining together to create a fancy yet fun party scene.

as for the decorations, i used a black and white parisian city scape tapestry from target as my table cloth, black and white eiffel tower posters from caravan shoppe's "paris party pack", and the most darling triangle pennant banners from the bees knees shoppe.  and did i mention they were custom made?!  this place is seriously one of my new favorite go-tos for party decor because the incredibly talented owner, amy, can make just about anything you can dream up!

then, there's the large tissue-paper honeycombs, gold glitter banner, and paper goods that i get from my designated one-stop party shop, zurchers.  i always feel like i have gone and died to party heaven when i go into this shop because they everything you ever think of dreaming up!  the options are truly endless; and if i wouldn't have had a specific vision in mind for the party, i would have bought way more than i did!  

and lets not forget the incredible floral arrangement from my amazingly talented friends over at foxglove!  i L O V E working with them for any party that i throw because they incorporate my vision with incredible flowers and greenery and transform it into something that is tres magnifique!

but aside from all of these companies providing amazing goods, my favorite part is that their prices are extremely reasonable.  making it easy to create an incredibly stunning party on any budget!

so, the next time you or someone you know is have their own sweet baby, why not add one more party to mix and throw your own gender reveal party?!  as hokey as it may sound, this type of party has quickly become one of my favorites to throw!

P.S.  i will be sharing details from this party A L L week!  so, come back on friday to see more fun images and snag all the details on how i did my three favorite gender reveals!  A N D like any week long theme that i do here on mumsy, we will end the festivities with an incredible giveaway that you don't wan to miss!  So, stay tuned!
