If only I knew about gender reveal parties before I had children, I would have pestered one of my sisters to throw me one, more than throwing me the usual baby shower. The idea of finding out if my baby was a boy or a girl, with my closest family and friends present at the reveal is absolutely genius. Plus, it probably would have made for one of the most memorable events in my journey as a mother.
I am particularly in love with this Milk & Cookies gender reveal party featured in Kara’s Party Ideas. The mommy-to-be, Paige Meyer, who is also a professional photographer, shared the photos of the beautiful party, and I for one am green with envy (okay, maybe just a little bit).
Paige and her husband were thrown a charming vintage farm style party. The highlight was a wooden trailer bed that was transformed into a rustic dessert table filled with all kinds of cookies and milk—chocolate milk, skim milk and 2%. I love the use of the bales of hay, galvanized tins and trays, mason jars and the rosettes made out of burlap—so rustic chic! Deviating from the usual pink and blue, they chose brown and pink as the color scheme. Guests casted their votes whether Baby Meyer would be a boy by wearing brown felt moustaches and pink ribbons if they wished for a girl. And for the big reveal, the Meyers wanted something more creative than the usual “cutting of the cake” or “balloon release”. They poured milk out of a sealed white milk bottle: chocolate milk for a boy and strawberry milk for a girl!
Look at the photos and find out for yourself if Baby Meyer is a he or a she.
