Meg's Gender Reveal Party

This weekend I hosted a gender reveal party for my younger sister Megan.
It was so much fun to throw!
Some background info for you guys with questions:
Meg went to her ultrasound at 18 weeks and had the Dr. write down the baby's gender in an envelope with a photo without telling Meg and Shaun what the baby was. (She actually had her write it in two envelopes!) Then she dropped them off at my house.
My mom took 1 of the envelopes to the baker who then opened it and used it to color the filling in the cake (pink for girl/blue for boy). I kept the other envelope for the party.
My parents were doing a lot of traveling and with football schedules and such we had to wait for the reveal party.  Poor Meg and Shaun had to wait for a month longer - such troopers!

The party was yesterday afternoon. I invited family and close friends to find out with Meg and Shaun what the baby would be!

I played  an "Old Wives Tale" game.

The game predicted "boy".

Both of the baby's Grandmas.
They each predicted a different gender!

What will it be?!?!

Pink filling! It's a GIRL!
(At this point I ran into the den to check the other envelope.... couldn't 100 percent trust the baker! But she was right!)

Time to pop the bubbly!

And enjoy some cake!

Here is the gift I got the baby.

Congrats Meg and Shaun.
I'm beyond happy to have a new, baby niece to spoil rotten!!
