Happy New Years friends,
Can’t believe its 2022! This New Years Eve we had a fun Sips, Sweets, and Sequins Gender Reveal party with our close family and found out what Baby Darnell #2 is! Scroll down to see what we are having plus details of our New Years Eve Sips, Sweets & Sequins Gender Reveal.
We had our gender reveal at my friend’s beautiful studio Sweenshots Studio in Houston. It was the perfect space for our party and had everything we needed, from the backdrop, to the kitchen, to the natural lighting. It was a great space for our small gathering.
For our gender reveal, we decided to do a sequin theme New Years Eve party. I am not a fan of the tradition pink and blue gender reveal parties. To be honest I am not even a fan of pink! So we went for more greens, golds, and peaches for our balloons. I found these balloon garlands (pink and green) on Amazon and combined them to create this look. We did our own balloon garland using this handy balloon pump and hired Alpha Lit Houston for the OH BABY letters. How pretty did these turn out! We also bought the 2022 Happy New Year balloons for $12 and bought a helium tank to blow them up ourselves. It saved us money doing it this way.
Since this was a smaller event for just close family we decided just to do sips and sweets for the food and beverages. We had our Gender reveal cake, cupcakes, and cake cones done by a local bakery The Butter Baby Bakery. It was so good! We got these gold and white cake stands for under $15 at Target! For party favors we gave away little mini champagne bottles and put these adorable thank you tags on them. The acrylic brother or sister sign is another Amazon find for $8! You can find our NYE themed paper plates and champagne glasses here.

How adorable is this baby stackable balloon boxes? We will definitely use these again for our baby shower! Also I can’t get over Jayden’s little suit. We got him a size seven since he will be seven in a couple of weeks. It was a bit bigger but came with adjustable pants so it worked out for our gender reveal. At least I know he will get plenty of wear since he can grow into it.
Still can’t believe I bought this sequin gown for $60 online! I wasn’t sure how the fit or the quality would be, but when it came in I was pleasantly surprised. The quality is amazing and the dress has plenty of stretch. It fit like a glove. However if I wasn’t pregnant I think I would have gotten an XS instead of a small for size reference.
IT’S A GIRL!!!! Josh already guessed it! Jayden thought it was a boy. Everyone else thought it was a boy but my mom and my cousin Allyson. I knew it was girl because it was very different from my pregnancy with Jayden. I craved sweets this time instead of red meat, and my first trimester was definitely worse with morning sickness than with Jayden. Check out the cutest Gender Reveal video we made of the event!
