Gender Reveal Ice Cream Social

We had a little gender reveal ice cream social to celebrate our little babe!  And oh baby it had some adorable little details.  And a little secret-they were all SUPER inexpensive too! So anyone could throw an ice cream social really.

I got a foam poster board from Dollar Tree and made this little "What's the scoop?" sign to tally guesses from the guests.

I found a simple ice cream clipart and traced scoops on a variety of pink and blue papers.

I found these cute little ice cream pens in the dollar bins at Michael's.  I also found the dot garlands, dot wrapping paper and little pom-poms there too-talk about a score!

I loved watching everyone make their guesses, especially these two cuties!  Can you even handle little Adam and his little shorts and Batman shoes!?!

We had lots of toppings so everyone could create their own special mix.  The toppings included:  mini marshmallows, coconut, mini Reese's, Snicker bites, Butterfinger bits, Twix pieces, baby gummy bears (these were a HIT!), banana slices, rainbow sprinkles, milk chocolate sprinkles, whipped cream, chopped walnuts and cherries.  We also had an assortment of cookies and cones.  We had classic flavors of ice cream and different sauces.

The sauce flavors we had:  hot fudge, caramel, strawberry, marshmallow and butterscotch. I'm totally in love with the sauce container, thanks to About a Mom, I'll link it and all the items I can find online below.  I loved the ceramic colored cones I found at Michael's for a steal and the smaller tan ceramic cones I found in the dollar bins at Target.

I love the look of overlapping garlands!  I added a couple cute felt ones to an ice cream cone garland I whipped together real quick!

I think it's safe to say everyone enjoyed the variety of toppings!

I loved having all of my family there and Dallin's parents, we are so grateful for their support!  And these cute little faces made the party even better!

Can you believe there were only 4 people that thought little babe would be a girl?  I was so convinced it would be a boy!

Then for the big reveal!

We found these poppers at Zurchers that were so fun to surprise all of my siblings and our parents with.  They were just hard to twist!

Watch my moms reaction!  Isn't she the cutest!  She also thought it would be a boy and was totally surprised when we found out it was a...


Little babe is a little MISS!! We couldn't be happier!

Well everyone except Adam that is.  He really wanted a boy cousin.  After he started bawling he immediately wanted to start cleaning up all the pink confetti!

As if we didn't have enough ice cream we had an ice cream cake to finish off the night!

Dallin and I live super close to my grandma so we dropped by to tell her the big news!  She also voted boy, but switched to girl right before we told her!

Emma had to get a picture alone with grandma too! haha

As a favor we packed these ice cream cones with our favorite Sweet's taffy!

Adam was pretty excited once he was able to have his own BLUE ice cream cone!

We had so much fun with Dallin's parents and my family.  We are so excited to have our little baby GIRL join us in December.  And throw all the fun parties for her! :)

I just had to mention these baby gummy bears!  They were SO delicious and such a fun find on Amazon!
