Sharing the gender of our Sketchy Mini with our friends and family was super important to us. We wanted to do something unique, engaging, and something that felt like us. Continue reading to hear more about our amazing event!


We initially thought that we wouldn’t do a “Gender Reveal Party”, because traditional gender reveals didn’t feel like “us”. I stumbled upon @picnicnsip_nj on Instagram and saw their “Movie Night backyard set up and the wheels started turning! At first, I thought it would be fun to have a regular movie night, without involving a reveal, & then like a lightbulb, the idea came to me: A Movie Night Gender Reveal!

The Reveal

So, how do you reveal a gender at a Movie Night? We decided to pick two movies we loved with genders in the title: “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” and “Mean Girls”. Whichever movie played on the inflatable screen would reveal the gender to our friends and family!

The Food

For a Movie Night theme, we HAD to go with a Popcorn Bar! We grabbed 4 buckets of gourmet popcorn from our favorite, Doc’s Popcorn in Tinton Falls NJ. We offered Better Butter, Classic Kettle, and the crowd favorite – Hopping Jalapeño. We grabbed the popcorn containers off Amazon, and created stickers in Canva to print on each to personalize it a bit more. I also snagged these arch acrylic signs from Amazon that I painted with the flavors. Linking my Amazon finds below!

The Decor

Having Picnic N Sip was beyond what I could have imagined, especially with the decor. They came early, set everything up, and came after the party to break everything down. It was seriously effortless and beyond beautiful. However, I found some great Amazon options if you want to create your own backyard movie night! This inflatable couch was the hit of the night, and it’s in my cart because it’s that good!

The Movie

Again, Picnic N Sip came in clutch here because all I had to do was have the DVDs! They set up a full projector screen and projector that was plug and play! I found similar options on Amazon, linked here!

The Photos

What’s a party without photo proof it happened?? Elle Austen Photo captured all of the photos in this post. They are beyond our wildest dreams and images we will treasure forever. If you are in the NJ area, book her – NOW!

The Reveal

You know I couldn’t have a Gender Reveal party post without actually telling YOU, the best Internet Aunties in the world, the gender!

We are SO beyond excited that Sketchy Mini is a GIRL! I said since Day 1 I knew she would be a girl, mama instincts I guess.

Of course, we are always just hoping for a happy and healthy baby most importantly, but we are THRILLED to be adding a little girl to our Sketchy Fam.
