Ties or Tutus?

January 26, 2015

Pink or Blue? Mister or Miss? Ties or Tutus? Anticipating the sex of your newborn is one of the most exciting parts of a pregnancy.  You can finally pick out baby names and buy frilly tutus or little bow ties.  Bring your closest friends and family together to celebrate this milestone in your growing family. 

Guests walked into the gender-neutral room at Hilton Garden Inn Downtown and immediately the curiosity struck.  Yellow, gray and white lit up the room with a custom party.  Everything from the invitations and baby ballots to the straw flags and tassels were designed and created by Kandice at K Design+Evenets with attention to every detail.  The Event Company always has such a great time teaming up with her to come up with a memorable party customized to each and every celebration. The baby ballot station had yellow and white tassels and paper ties draping from the high-top table.  Add a splash of color to the table with a vase filled with fresh lemons.  

 We wanted to create a fun and exciting way for all of the guests to be included in the gender reveal.  As they sat on their crisp, white resin chairs from Ideal Wedding and Events, they pondered what to check on the baby ballot.  The party poppers sat at each spots waiting to reveal the pink or blue confetti hidden inside. To make sure the guests don’t peak, we added gray confetti to the top. 1…2…3…Pink shades of confetti sprinkled the table while giggles and happy tears filled the room.  We had 3 different messages on the party poppers: ?, Boy or Girl, and Tutus or Ties?

 The mommy-to-be had a huge craving for Rice Krispies Treats®.  We decided to take her cravings and make a twist to the very popular cake-cutting trend for gender reveals.  A multi-layered cake created from Rice Krispies Treats® and coated with a homemade marshmallow fluff frosting had the revealing color unseen within the creative ‘cake.’ Make your reveal your own! We added a custom cake topper with mini tassel garlands of ties and tutus. 

 Creating a memorable gender reveal with a twist on the ordinary.  Make it fun for the guests and let them get involved in this very unforgettable way! Dazzle your friends and family with a visually appealing layout, fun party favors, and a customized reveal as unique as your growing bundle of joy.
