Ice Cream Sundae Gender Reveal Party

Ice Cream Gender Reveal
To reveal Baby #2's gender we had our families over for an Ice Cream Sundae party.
Here's a look at a few party details...
I used a piece of black butcher paper as a table runner and wrote on it using chalkboard markers and then had all the ice cream toppings out on the table. For the hot toppings, I used this Pinterest trick to melt the chocolate and caramel and keep them warm in my crock pot. It worked wonderfully!
We had all our family members make their Sundaes and top them with the color sprinkles that matched the gender they thought Baby #2 was going to be. Let's just say everyone at the party (minus my brother) topped their Sundaes with PINK sprinkles!
After everyone had gotten their ice cream, Drew, Aiden and I got ours and then it was time for the reveal. We got out a sprinkle container that I had already put the correct color of sprinkles in. Everyone watched as we dumped out BLUE sprinkles on top of our Sundaes. Surprise! Aiden is getting a BROTHER in January.
It was such a sweet day (in every sense of the word) and we can't wait for Aiden to be a brother!

Such a fun idea! With how much ice cream I ate while pregnant (okay, and when not pregnant) this would be a perfect party for me - and actually Hendrik has been asking for an ice cream birthday party, so I am saving some of your great ideas... like the way to keep it cold! Love the way you displayed the toppings - and yay, baby brother!
