This clever TIES OR TUTUS? GENDER REVEAL PARTY was submitted by Laura Aguirre of LAURA’S little PARTY.
I love the idea of assigning each gender either a tutu or a tie! So cute! Some of my favorite elements & party ideas in this gender reveal celebration are:
The green salad served in mason jars
The tutu and tie (onesie) banner
The chicken salad served in ice cream cones
The beautiful 3-tiered yellow and gray fondant cake
This is what Laura said about planning the party- “I was lucky to have some wonderful party girls/friends help me plan my ‘ties or tutus’ gender reveal party! Since this will be our last kiddo, I thought it would be fun to do something that I’ve never done with our other 3 children. I knew right away that I wanted to style this party using the colors yellow & gray! Our 20+ guests indulged in yummy desserts, tasty appetizers, and 3 different fruit spritzers. Drinks were served in milk bottles, and yummy mixed greens were eaten out of Mason jars. Our beautiful cake announced the gender of our 4th baby! We were so excited to finally tell our family & close friends that we are expecting another boy! Cupcakes, cookies, marshmallow pops, chocolate covered pretzels, and cake pops were among the several delicious desserts offered! I created a simple backdrop of yellow, white, and gray paper fans, and refurbished an old dresser I purchased from goodwill, and made it our dessert table! I collected empty wine bottles from my girlfriends, and turned them into simple centerpieces. I had so much fun styling & shooting my party! I worked with a great team of party/dessert vendors – I can’t thank them enough for all their beautiful talent, and delicious creations!”

This YELLOW & BURLAP VINTAGE BRIDAL SHOWER submitted by Jenny Marrs of Marrs Memories is just lovely! I hope you love it as much as I do. There is definitely a lot of darling shower ideas!
“This was a bridal shower that I hosted for my sister. We incorporated the wedding colors of yellow and grey into the theme. We wanted the shower to be lighthearted and fun and used details like chalkboards and personalized signs for the food and drink tables. We used old crates and vintage boxes to display the desserts on the dessert bar. The dessert bar included cake pops, cupcakes and mini cheesecakes and they were all a hit! Each guest took home a jar of homemade citrus salt body scrub in a mini mason jar.”

Today’s party feature goes to this lovely VINTAGE GREY AND YELLOW BRIDAL SHOWER submitted by Linsey Herrera ofLux Events & Design. What a gorgeous celebration. I love everything about it. Look at the typewriter, vintage frames, hanging mason jars, rosette flowers, doilies, milk glass & more! Swoon.Here is what Linsey said about the party- “The color scheme was yellow and grey with a heart theme! I collected lots of different mason jars, old frames, old fruit crates and milk glass to use for decor. I assembled the dessert bar with different cake domes and riser boxes. The cupcakes were displayed on top of a vintage seed box. The guests sipped on mimosas and dined on fresh baked quiche, strawberry salad and fresh fruit. The dessert bar was a hit! There was not one sweet left! To keep with the theme, Heros Baking Co. cut lemon bars into hearts and baked fresh giant sugar cookies in the shape of a heart. The sweet and Saucy shop did grey fondant heart cutouts for the top of the cupcakes. Each guest took home a small jar of homemade lemon curd.”
