Birds & Bees Themed Gender Reveal Party

To fill friends and family in on the gender of their little one on the way, Michelle of Perfect Parties by Michelle created a fun and festive "Birds and Bees" themed gender reveal party in a palette of yellow, gray, and white. When guests arrived, they donned either a bird (girl) or bee (boy) pin to show their prediction. They had plenty to munch on with a fully stocked table of sandwiches wrapped in patterned paper, cupcakes, chocolate-dipped marshmallows, yogurt covered almond "eggs" in tiny nests, oreo cookie and vanilla pudding desserts layered to look like bumble bees, honey dipped doughnuts, and panna cotta with honey topping using a recipe from Amy Atlas. The backdrop featured tissue paper flowers adorned with bees made from poms and pipe cleaners along with little birds from Michaels. Pink confetti released from a DIY pinata revealed to guests that it was a bird on the way! Such a fun idea! You can see all of the images submitted in the full gallery.
