This patriotic party set the stage for all future 4th of July bashes! The gender reveal was made complete with a DIY balloon backdrop, personalized koozies, 4th of July themed cookies, baseballs, and anything and everything that my cricut could bust out, including personalized masks!
The table was decorated with placemats that were printed at Office Depot, these Meri Meri Paper Plates, as well as star paper plates that are unfortunately discontinued. I used these wooden planter boxes and my uncles MASSIVE collection of baseballs to make this table scape come to life.
For added detail and buffet convenience, I made these cute utensil pockets to make carrying food items easier.
Out of this ENTIRE party, I am probably the most proud of this board. I had to make this thing ALL by myself because my Such Pretty Faces better half was MIA. HOW RUDE. This realistically should have taken 30 minutes. When you’re calligraphed challenge, it takes closer to six. ha!
Because… 2020 humor was the best. These cookies stole the show. Everyone loved them!
Another fun 4th of July themed cookie.
The process to making this backdrop is A LOT, but very simple. Realistically, you need a good week to get this bad girl finished. Otherwise, your back, fingers, and whoever had to run over last minute to help you will no longer be your friend. This backdrop consist of bird netting and cut strips of plastic table cloths. It’s much easier to cut the strips when using plastic table cloth rolls, the individual table cloths are hard to cut and you will have to buy out three Hobby Lobby’s to make this beauty happy.
But great news! These hang beautifully in your closet and can be reused and reused and reused.
For the cake and cupcakes, simple was best. They were made complete by cricut creations I made the previous week.
Is any gender reveal complete without a voting station? I would say, ABSOLUTELY NOT. Not only were these cute, but they were also keepsakes for the parents-to-be.
These desserts scream ‘AMERICA’ and packaging was genius. All of our guest were sent home with homemade pre-packaged blackberry cobbler, and they loved it!
For a serving free buffet set up, we pre-packaged all of the condiments and toppings and added personalized labels. Hot Dog Bar toppings included the following:
- Sour Cream
- French Onions
- Chopped Fresh Onion
- Green Onions
- AND Chili
Yeah, yeah- I know. But you have to admit, regardless of political party affiliation, it’s pretty funny… and cute.
This 4th of July themed evening ended with a large, PINK, firework display. It doesn’t get any sweeter than this! Sadie, you are so loved!
