Gender Reveal Party

Heather and Matt got married at the Dayton Art Institute in November 2010 and are expecting their first bundle of joy. They decided to find out the sex of the baby at a “Gender Reveal Party” that included all of their closest friends and family members. The Gender Reveal is a new trend that just recently started making headlines across the country as couples started coming up with unique ways to find out the sex of their baby at a celebration with family and friends. Heather scheduled their Gender Reveal Party for the day after her 20-week ultrasound…she and Matt shielded their eyes at the appointment and had the ultrasound technician put the determining photo into a sealed envelope, which was then delivered to the bakery that was responsible for creating the shower cake. The bakery was instructed to use pink filling for a girl and blue for a boy, and to carefully frost the cake to conceal its contents so it wouldn’t ruin the surprise before the big moment. Heather cut into the cake at the shower to reveal……blueberries! They’re expecting a little boy in early 2013, and couldn’t be more thrilled. Congrats to the parents-to-be!
