there are so many great ideas out there: balloons out of a box, popping a big balloon with confetti coming out, silly string, and of course, the classic cutting into a cake.
i am a sucker for cake balls, so i decided to go that route (and jeff voted for the least-clean-up option!)
i used this sugar cookie truffle recipe, and made the inside a light blue color (not too dark so the coating could still hide it!) after the white chocolate coating, i divided the recipe in half, and covered half with pink sprinkles and half with blue, and set them in two separate displays. each color had corresponding balloons as well.
there was also a little poem i wrote, so guests would know to wait and eat together:
HE OR SHE...
WHAT WILL IT BE?
it's time to guess, what do you think?
will it be blue? will it be pink?
all together, let's take a bite,
and then we'll see who got it right!
it was a mid-afternoon party, so we also had some light savory snacks, including fruit, a cheese plate, veggies + hummus, and popcorn. i stocked up on simple blue and pink plates, napkins, and cups from party city.
