Three celebrations at once? Yes, please!! A good friend of mine, Jillian, is going to be a first time mother this year!! I am super excited for her and her husband Matt. My husband and I met them at our friend Michael's Celebration of Life in November. She has quickly become one of my fave gal pals and I was honored to be asked to photograph this special day. On Sunday, March 12th, Jillian got family and friends together for a St. Patrick's Day themed gender reveal/30th birthday party. It was SO HOT out, but it was great to be around good people and good food celebrating.
Food was catered by In-N-Out (yummmm) and friends and family baked delicious treats. Jillian made lucky charms puppy chow. It was delish and straight out of a Pinterest recipe.
Since this was a gender reveal party, guests were encouraged to place their bet by adding $2 to the pot of gold. If the baby is a girl, she will be named Ripley. If the baby is a boy, he will be named Bronson. After lunch, it was time to reveal by popping a giant balloon. Guests were given poppers to pop when Jillian popped the giant black balloon so everyone could be part of the reveal.
