This weekend our close family and friends got together to celebrate with us for our official gender reveal of baby number two. With Cadence, I was insistent on knowing the sex of our baby as soon as I could! I couldn’t wait. This time around, I was more focused on having a healthy baby.
While doing my research, I saw so many fun gender reveal celebration ideas online. It was a bit overwhelming trying to determine how exactly to do it. Eventually we decided to do it with icing layers of a cake.
Our cake was designed and baked by Candi’s Sweet Memories in Bowie, Maryland. This is one of my family’s favorite cake vendors so we always go with her.
I don’t know if it’s because my dress was blue or what, but there was on overwhelming number of votes for Team Boy. We held the celebration outdoors and called it a “BabyCue” (found that online too!) serving BBQ food and finger foods.
The icing inside the cake was blue! I am so excited to welcome our baby boy to the world in a few short months. Cadence is really stoked to be a big sister and I can’t wait to see how she interacts with her baby brother.
I’ll do a follow-up post and share details about my outfit and a few other great places online to buy maternity dresses for cocktail and formal occasions.
