For Hailey's 2nd birthday celebration, we decided to do a joint party with my nephew Collin for his 5th birthday. We did a simple watermelon theme and I think it turned out pretty cute! Here are some photos from the party.
|I cannot take credit for this adorable banner. It was made by my super talented friend Rachel Reichley|
|This cute watermelon pillowcase dress came from Etsy|
|Cupcake toppers also made by Rachel|
|Watermelon Vodka Slush anyone?? With non-alcoholic versions available for kids and preggos :)|
|The birthday kids!|
|Time for presents!|
|After opening each gift she would say "oh my!"|
After the kids finished opening presents, we decided to surprise everyone and do something special to reveal the gender of baby #2. I came up with the idea to stuff a giant balloon with gender specific confetti and feathers and then pop it! I'm happy to report that it turned out great and I highly recommend this method to anyone doing a gender reveal party!
|It's a girl!!! Couldn't be happier :)|
|Time for dessert!|

|This works better :)|
|Yay I did it!|
|Doing her famous laugh :)|
