This past weekend I invited my parents over for a little gender reveal party! It was a simple little get together but it was so much fun to share with them the fact that they’d have a new granddaughter on the way.
I had a long roll of sonogram pictures from my 18-week appointment that included several great profile pictures as well as closeups of the hands, feet, and heart. I admit I’ve done a little bit of shopping already for baby girl and couldn’t resist these super cute pink crochet bear booties — they’ll hopefully be put to good use since baby will be arriving in the middle of winter! For the rest of our party preparations, I picked up a couple items from HMK the last time I was there as I knew they’d have a great selection of unique and beautiful pieces. I fell in love with this charming glass cake stand with the bird topper and it was absolutely perfect for a batch of sweet potato dessert bars that I baked up. And what would a party be without a little champagne right? These champagne flutes from HMK have the perfect mix of modern design and whimsical flair with its cheerful messaging down the side of each glass.
We had a huge spread of food and it was a such a great time to share such joyous news with my family.
And while we did end up swapping out the champagne for some orange juice during the actual meal, Dylan had himself a feast and loved sipping the juice from our fancy glasses. I still can’t believe our little home is growing to a family of 4 in a few months!
