Gender Party! (and the cutest thing I have ever made!)

My BFF is preggo with baby #2 and asked me to throw a gender party for their families. It was held on Saturday afternoon and was so much fun! We went with a cowboy/cowgirl theme, which really was just bandanas, burlap and mason jars. I made some fabric pinwheels and a simple bunting for decor. We started off with some super cute invitations from Sweet Bee Design. Alicia was great to work with and got us just what we wanted!
Also, Big Sister needed a new outfit. This is what I'm chalking up as the cutest thing ever! I hope that doesn't sound like I'm full of myself, but the combination of everything was super cute! I ordered the Malibu Mega Ruffle Dress pattern from Tenderfeet Stitches on Etsy. I really wasn't wanting to make it because of all the ruffles, but it wasn't bad at all (although I've since ordered a ruffler for time's sake). Here is the big sister!

The fabric is all from the Wanna be a Cowboy 2 line by Riley Blake I bought last year. Some of the prints are a little hard to find. I bought them at Cabbage Rose, but they're out of a few of them now. The tags were left on the boots just in case she didn't like them, which was a good thing. They are going back next week :) I'll let you all see pictures of the rest of the party, but heres the news you've all been waiting for..... it's a GIRL!
