IT’S A GIRL!!!
I am over the moon with the amount of love I have been receiving from everyone throughout my pregnancy and it feels so good to finally know what I’m having.
I’ll be honest, when I first found out I was pregnant I thought I was having a boy because that’s all I could picture in my head. As weeks went by I started having a ton of dreams with having a little girl and from there I had a gut feeling it would be, and I was right!!
I am currently 26 weeks pregnant and as you all know, I announced my pregnancy on social media on the first of 2019 so I wanted to wait a little before I started planning all of the fun stuff.
When it comes to style, I envisioned my gender reveal to be very intimate, minimal and chic. I was looking on pinterest for months to get inspired and I decided to go with a garden theme to incorporate plants and flowers, and to start getting in the mood for spring.
I got tons of help from close friends and family to help bring my vision to life and I love that mostly everything consisted of DIY projects that were so easy to put together.
So let’s start off with the decorations, I was lucky enough that my boyfriend’s family had the perfect wooden design to create the flower wall I wanted. As you can see in the picture below, it was easy to buy flowers and just pin them all over and voila! The flowers that you see on the sides going straight down are from the Dollar Tree!!! Yassssss, they were each just $1! The white flowers you see hanging on the next row going in towards the middle are from Hobby Lobby and those were $2 each. The crown in the middle was another DIY that my boyfriend’s family had which was spray painted with gold and the plants and smaller flowers were added onto the crown for the final touch. So beautiful and creative, all ideas from Pinterest. The two bigger flowers next to the crown were handmade by my cousin and look even better in person! I bought the plants to put on top from Michael’s which were on sale for about $3 each and the final touch to my flower wall was the baby sign I found at Target for $5!! I was so happy with the outcome because I’ve always been one to preach about what’s affordable so this was right up my alley!
I wanted everything at my gender reveal to be simple including the food so I decided to go with sandwich platters from Costco along with fruit platters aka all finger foods which turned out to be so convenient.
All of the desserts were soooo yummy! My best friend got me donuts, I had another friend bake me cupcakes which were AMAZING and I also got pastries from Porto’s bakery, if you’re in the LA area then you know how good everything is there!
My boyfriend ended up making this board all by himself from scratch which I thought was super cool and it was something he really wanted to do as I was getting everything else ready. As you can see there are 16 balloons so we had to pop each one until it was either pink or blue. He was going for boy and of course I was team girl but it was so fun to experience with our friends and family watching!
Floral Center Pieces
The center pieces were so beautiful and delicate, everything truly turned out the way I wanted it to and I can’t wait for my baby shower to come and continue sharing this whole process with all of you!
Baby girl is moving like crazy and my bump is growing more each week, it’s such a beautiful experience and I truly feel love and blessed!
