I am so thrilled to be sharing this post with the world! My best friend is having a baby and it’s a….GIRL! I don’t think it’s possible to share how excited I am for my friend of many years and her husband!
There are going to be so many precious moments and joyous experiences happening for them! Although I haven’t personally experienced motherhood, I know without a doubt that she will be one of the greatest moms ever! I remember the exact moment when she sent me the photo of her ultrasound! I burst into tears right at my desk at work! I was upset and happy all at the same time! How? I was so annoyed that she hadn’t told me sooner, but I was extremely happy that she was pregnant and having my next niece or nephew (I didn’t know the gender at the time).
You know the next thing the best friend is supposed to do after finding out news like this, right? Right! I instantly started surfing the web for cute baby outfits! I immediately became obsessed! We talked all day long and fed off of each other’s excitement. Now, with finding out the gender of baby Talbert, this has taken it to an entirely different level of excitement!
I pray for nothing but great health, great times, great memories, and great amounts of love to surround this growing family of THREE!
Here are a few shots from her Tee Time or Tea Party themed gathering!
Planning a gender reveal can be stressful for some and for others it’s a breeze! I created a small list of four (4) helpful tips that can make planning a little bit easier!
4 Helpful Tips When Planning A Gender Reveal Party
- Make sure you consult with the honoree – find out his and her likes; the vision of the parents is what’s most important.
- Appoint a trust worthy friend also known as the “secret keeper” to know the gender and plan the party! (I was not that person because I would have ruined the surprise!)
- Try not to do one color more than the other – – have a balanced amount of pink and blue. (And, yes, it’s okay to use a different color scheme for the gathering.)
- Be sure to have a reliable person to have the camera ready and rolling to capture the big moment of the reveal and all the other details that make the day so special.
