Hello, Blog World! Amber again. Last week, I wrote about creating Gender Reveal Party invitations. This week, let’s explore decorations. Honestly, the same decorations you would use for any Baby Shower would be great for a gender reveal party – and the nice thing is that you can use the pink AND blue decorations. However, it was very important to me that all the decorations I used for Alisha’s party had a dual purpose – either as a gift or part of an activity (which we will talk about next week). I also wanted the theme of the party to be based on the invitations, which featured a clothesline of cute onesies. So, I started there.
A huge trend right now among crafters seems to be appliqued onesies. I decided to make some for my future neice/nephew. I bought plain white onesies, pink and blue fabric, and some heat’n bond and went to town. This process was actually not too tough, but if you are on a schedule, make sure you give yourself enough time to do the blanket stitching. I would estimate that it took me about one movie for every three onesies. This was not without the help of a friend of mine whose visit from out of town unknowingly volunteered her for sewing duty. (Thanks, Jodi!) The onesies turned out GREAT and were hung in a prominent position to serve as a background for pink/blue group photos and present opening.
