Last month my eldest daughter, Ashley, planned a gender reveal party to celebrate her first pregnancy! I was so excited when she told my husband and I the news. I thought the party was a fun way to celebrate this wonderful news with family and friends. It’s a very exciting time for our family. I wanted to share my daughter’s creation of “Watch Me Grow” party favors.
- Mini succulent plants (Succulent Source)
- Mini white pails (Succulent Source)
- Blue and pink ribbons
- Hole puncher
- tags (LOVEmeetDESIGN)
STEP 1: Pails
The plants from the Succulent Source arrived in great shape. They did an awesome job shipping them. Fill the mini pails with succulents. Just add a little water to the plants. They don’t require much water. These little green cuties are my favorite. I was excited that Ashley chose this look for the favors.
STEP 2: Ribbon
Cut 8 inch strands of pink and blue ribbon. There were 20 favors, so that means 40 strands of ribbons of each color. String the ribbon through the hole and tie it around the pail handle.
Step 4: Tags
Punch a hole into the tags. String the ribbon through the hole and tie a bow. The bow should appear bigger than the tag.
Both Ashley and Greg knew the gender of the baby before the rest of us. I am sure you are all wondering what color the inside of the cake revealed. The consensus was a boy and my daughter was hoping for a girl, but…
It’s a boy! We all couldn’t be more thrilled!
Hope you enjoyed this cute favor idea! Mama Weppner did an amazing job planning everything! The cake was designed by a local baker, the flowers were a combination of blue and pink flowers with lots of baby’s breath. The food was so good and catered from our favorite local Italian restaurant. Everyone had a happy time!
