Everything is made by myself, all the decorations and food items. It really did not take much to put it together!
I made these cute little felt pins, for people to show off their guess.
We really wanted to try something new, something that has not been all over Pinterest just yet. Of course since then, we have found quite a few more silly string gender reveals. And here I thought I was being all unique and original, when I was just re-inventing the wheel.
And it’s a…….
This was the letter from the doctor. It was soooooo hard to keep it a secret. No, actually it wasn’t. I enjoyed the little torture HAHA
