After days of brainstorming, my heart was sold on confetti poppers for our reveal. I just love the childish happiness that every person feels when standing under confetti falling from the sky. There are plenty of great sources online to purchase pre-made confetti poppers, but I decided to take the DIY approach. I just wasn’t confident in purchasing the product online and not knowing if they would actually “pop” for the big moment. There are several DIY how-to guides on blogs, and I think Lauren Conrad’s Guide is the most accurate to follow. An important note – none of the DIY guides online actually show the activation [launching] of the confetti popper. This can be very misleading for expectations.
We recently got to share the exciting news of our upcoming baby’s gender with our loved ones at a Gender Reveal Brunch. Any type of event is fun for me to plan, and I will admit that I can get swept up creating over the top details in a heartbeat. However, Brince and I didn’t want to go overboard for this event. Our priority was to have an intimate, easy reveal with our families that didn’t inconvenience anyone’s schedule. Thus, we decided to host a Saturday brunch at our home with all the details taken care of so that everyone could just show up and enjoy!
We were overwhelmed with the response to the recent photo that we shared on social media announcing that we are pregnant with a baby boy. I can’t express how warm my heart is from all the love and encouragement that you have shared with us. I hope you enjoy these photos [and outtakes] from our fun confetti photography session!
