Our Gender Reveal Party! {Old Time Western BabyQ}

When planning our Gender Reveal party I knew I wanted for it to be three things: 1.) Adorable,  2.) Laid back and 3.) Outside. My Aunt just so happens to have a farm and a few years ago she built a Western Town on her property. Yes, you read that right and yes it's amazing. I knew it would be the perfect place to have a party so I ran with the old time western theme and loved it.
The oh so talented Erin designed our invitations and they definitely set the tone for our party.
 We had our guests pick a pink or blue bandana to show what they thought Baby Renner would be and I came up with a little rhyme that my sister in law added to an oversized chalkboard.
Then we got pictures with those who voted Baby Renner was a girl...
and those who voted Baby Renner was a boy...
Then it was time for the big reveal. I used a round paper lantern and turned it into what you see below using tissue paper, some double sided tape and my crafty sister in law. Don't even ask me how long it took to make, although it was totally worth every second.

 It's a...BOY!
Now my favorite part, the reactions from our friends and family.
Then out came the ultrasound pictures.
The rest of the night we ate delicious food (burgers, hot dogs, fruit and pasta salad were all on the menu) played games and then had smores over the bonfire. 
It truly was the best day and it was so fun to celebrate our little one.
