It's a party where everyone, at the same time, finds out the sex of a baby on the way. People wear pink or blue to indicate what they hope the baby will be. Of course, there are lots of pink and blue decorations, food and drink.
Not only had I never been to a gender reveal party, I'd never heard of them either. That all changed this week, when I attended a gender party for my niece, Tracy.
We had great food. Grand nephew Nathan is overseeing the cupcakes for us:
I made the Palmiers (savory puff pastry appetizers). They were easy to make, tasted great and will certainly make a return appearance when I'm asked to provide an appetizer.
Kudos to niece Mary, who was the hostess of the party and kept the sex of the baby secret for 24 hours. Good job!
We are all looking forward to welcoming "Timothena" into the family. Joke. :-)
