Mustaches & Bows

I know, I took a little hiatus from blogging last week but I have a good reason- I've been working hard all week and when I wasn't working I was shopping and making things for the party that we are hosting this weekend. The mustache and bow party, that is. That's right, we're having a gender reveal! I have an appointment on Wednesday and that's when we will be finding out the gender of our little bambino/bambina! 

But... we are going to go through torture for a couple of days because we are having the doctor put the gender in an envelope and bringing it straight to the baker after the appointment so they can make us either a pink or a blue cake. I know, we're crazy but I think being able to share that moment with our nearest and dearest will be all the more special. 

I'm hoping that I'll have time to take photos of everything before everyone arrives (which of course I'll share with you) but until then, here are some of the details:
Bow pins and adhesive mustaches for our guest to wear.
Yes, I made these. The bows were much easier than the mustaches!

I found the most adorable plates and napkins at the most unexpected place... Walmart.
...and matching cups.
I had to have these tissue paper pom poms too.
The last time I made these was for the wedding and I totally forgot how much time they take.

In other news, I'll be posting a 20 week update next week. I plan on posting "BUMPdates" every 2 weeks from here on out since things are changing and my belly is growing- fast!
