Simply Sweet Gender Reveal Party by Simply Bloom Photography

With a little one on the way for Vania Morris of Simply Bloom Photography and her husband Brian, they decided to host a gender reveal party to let friends and family whether they have a little girl or boy on the way. It happened to be Vania's birthday, too, and this was a wonderful way to celebrate! The decor was kept simple and absolutely lovely in a pretty, gender-neutral palette of shades of sage green. Rosemary and homegrown lavender from her mother's backyard made for beautiful adornment on the table and was one of Vania's favorite details. As another extra surprise, they decided to reveal the baby's name as well, hiding it inside the giant green balloon. After cutting the cake, they popped the balloon to announce it to guests. So fun! Vania shared some sweet videos with us of both reveals -- take a look below at the bottom of this post, and find out the name and gender of that little bundle on the way! You can also see all of the photos in the full gallery.
