“Under The Big Top” Gender Reveal

 People often forget about rental businesses when they are planning events that aren’t weddings. While we love our brides and helping with their weddings, we also really enjoy getting to be a part of other kinds of parties, too! You might find yourself in need of a single cake stand for an upcoming birthday party or cake smash. Or, you might want to do what owner of Pursuing Eden, Kristal Childs, did when she planned her gender reveal a little over two years ago! She found creative use for so many of our rental pieces to pull together an adorable, carnival themed bash. All of the thoughtful and eye catching elements she spent time organizing made for a very fun, hands on celebration that led all of her guests to feel involved and entertained.

When planning this party, Kristal wanted to go beyond just setting out cold beverages in a cooler and chips and dip on a flat surface. She wanted to be sure to tie in the theme with the food and drinks by setting up bright, colorful stations for them! Knowing little ones were going to be coming, she also organized carnival style games to have out for them to enjoy. Did you know we rent a handful of charming games you can use at your parties?

Doug and Kristal decided to have their “reveal” happen through red or blue icing filled cupcakes made by Calavera Cakery! Everyone grabbed a cupcake, but the parents-to-be got a 2 second head start on digging in so they could be first to know if they were having a boy or girl!

Everyone was thrilled to know there was a baby girl on the way! Several weeks later, little Miss Arden Rose arrived and we have all been smitten since.

A big thank you to these incredible vendors who helped make it happen:
