Stache or Sash Gender Reveal Party

Last weekend we hosted a 'Stache or Sash' gender reveal party at our house. We had a great time with friends and family, which means I was too busy to take many pictures. I had these grande ideas of great pictures so I am sad that didn't happen. Oh well! So I am going to share a little of what we did and how we did the reveal.

These were the invitations I made up...and you can get them in my Etsy shop!

When the guests first arrived, they would grab a sticker for what their guess was. Most people thought I was having a girl! It was fun to see what people's guesses were.

Here is a shot of the food table...

I made these mustache and sash pops using candy molds I purchased on Amazon. They were a HUGE hit with the kids. I was worried no one would eat them, but the kids gobbled them up within about 2 minutes of the party starting.

So, for the actual reveal, I didn't want to do the same ol' thing I had seen on Pinterest over and over again. So that crossed off cutting into a cake, people getting tinted cupcakes, or using balloons. Instead, I made scratch off lotto tickets! How cute is that?! :) People would scratch off to see if they had three of a kind (three mustaches or three sashes). I made a couple different versions and there was only one winner. My mom got the winning ticket and was SHOCKED that I was having another boy. (if you are keeping count, this is our THIRD son!)

Here is Brad explaining the tickets to everyone...

Tomorrow I will share how I made the tickets, which was really easy, and will share the different card versions in case you want to make some on your own!

Please be a fan of lil Mop Top on facebook!! I link up to these parties!


  1. What a fun idea! I too am pregnant with my third boy. If we go for a fourth (ha!) maybe I'll have a gender reveal party too. Looks like you had a great time. :)

  2. This is adorable!! What a great idea! Found you through a linky party! :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! They make my day when I read them!...unless you are being mean, then they don't make my day. :)
