gender reveal party

a week before we found out what we were having i met this cute girl that was pregnant with her 4th boy.
she asked if we were planning a fun way to reveal the gender, and i still wasn't sure. she told me i should go for it! especially now while i am young, and have the time and energy.
so i said, why not? we had a fun idea anyways!

pinterest was no luck with ideas, and then my sister in law mentioned using cotton candy somehow. 
my cousin just so happened to have a cotton candy machine, so it was fate!

 we had both families meet at our home, and i roped off the route for them to go using a little pom pom garland i made!

the garland led them to this cotton candy display.
 i didn't have a chalkboard big enough, so i just painted a piece of cardboard with chalkboard paint.
it says: 
pink or blue, it's up to you
take your pick, and grab a cotton candy stick!

 cotton candy garland made via THIS tutorial.

so we had each family member grab a pink or blue cotton candy stick as their final guess and head around the house to the backyard where j and i were waiting.
i was holding a blue cotton candy stick, and j was holding a "it's a boy sign"!
we had decorated our backyard with bistro lights and tissue tassels that were blue!
 we ended the night with a smores party, laying on the hammock, and brewing up names for baby boy!

such a fun night, and we are so happy to be having a boy!
we always knew it was going to be a boy, so it was a fun conformation! 

my cute little sister made this sweet video of the night!
so glad she did. it's hard being the photographer at your own event, which is why i only have few images. so this video made me happy!
thanks sis!
