This was a casual outdoor occasion, with a little over 30 guests. The color scheme was basic baby pink and blue.
Here is an easy DIY decoration--hang some pink and blue vintage baby clothes (the blue outfit was grandpa's, making this even better!)
|tiny clothespins are always a fun touch!|
Fabric rag swag
|tiki torches and table candles were citronella, keeping away mosquitoes|
|1. Loop fabric strip, as shown, and lay it under a length of twine|
|2. Bring the two ends of the looped fabric around twine & through fabric loop|
|3. Pull the ends as tight as you like|
|Here is my result--yours may be tighter, or looser, or differently spaced.|
Back to the gender reveal--it was a windy day, and even though you can't see these in the photos, I absolutely LOVE these DIY tablecloth weights! So handy, inexpensive, and easy to make:
Regular spring clip clothespins, with large sized glass dragon tears glued to the ends--simply clip these to the corners, and sometimes center edges, depending on how windy it is, of the tablecloths to keep things from blowing about.
|the tables also had a sprinkling of star confetti|
Just in case there was any doubt, the blue-for-boy was repeated in the delicious cake, made by daughter-in-law #1:
Baby Boy is due in early January--how much baby stuff do you think I can get made by then????
