Mini Jeep Gender Reveal & Pregnancy Announcement
A Little Turquoise, Gender Reveal
I’m so excited to finally be sharing this story with you today! When I first got pregnant I thought, no way, I’m not having a gender reveal, there is nothing creative left to do, no confetti balloons for me (no offense if that’s your jam). A few of my friends encouraged me to think about it and just do something little to celebrate the special milestone and nothing was clicking for me. Until one day I stumbled upon this adorable Mini Jeep on Amazon. Not 100% sure how that happened but I have bought parts for my Jeep and Sheep In A Jeep the kids book, so maybe Amazon’s algorithm deemed me fit to see an ad for that darling little ride on toy. As soon as I saw it I imagined myself driving that little Jeep across my parent’s lawn to share the news and I was sold. The perfect idea and just perfect for me. I also figured a photo of it next to my Jeep would make a great pregnancy announcement too (had to make it worth its price), and it did. However, the idea meant that I had to find out the gender alone, build the Jeep toy by myself, get it to the party, and keep it all a secret for weeks, which wasn’t easy at all but it was totally worth it. The event was short and sweet, just a fun quick celebration with my favorites to start our pregnancy journey. I filmed the reveal and there’s a fun little twist at the end, I hope you enjoy.
Sandwiches & Candy
I kept the party treats really simple; Subway sandwiches and a small candy bar filled with blue and pink candies. I already had all the jars and tablecloths, the only thing I bought was the oh baby sign and the steamer backdrop to kind of cover up the garage wall in my parents backyard.
Cast Your Vote
I made this little sign using my Cricut and had my friends and family all cast their vote by wearing either a pink or blue necklace. I wore both because I’m the only one who knew… well, me and the cookie lady!
Here’s My Reveal Video:
My sweet little Delilah. Our resident uber-talented florist Jacki lives next door to my parents and Delilah is her daughter. Once she saw the Jeep she headed right for it and I of course let her drive it because why on earth would I say no. I had no idea she didn’t know how to drive a toy car and she ended up gently crashing into the table… at least she was in a Jeep.
After I shared the fabulous news I handed out custom “It’s A Girl” Jeep cookies I had made by Sweetsicle Bake Shop. There was plenty of candy for everyone to snack on so these were just a sweet treat for the end of the party. They are just as delicious as they are pretty!
Just a few quick pictures in the park made for the perfect baby girl pregnancy announcement for us!
Special Gift For Big Sissy
My husband has a daughter from his previous relationship and she’s not only the cutest but also the sweetest. Very proud Step-Mom here, I like to call myself her “Extra Mom” because step sounds so terrible. The special pink mini Jeep became a gift to her from Baby Hadley and Big Sissy loves it! Jeep Girl in the making. Thanks to Jacki for the idea.
