16 months later! I post details on the baby reveal party! yicks! talk about procrastinating.
The reveal was held May 10, 2013! at my old apartment.
So this started with a lot of googling a I love the Scavenger Hunt themed idea.
This reveal was for my "Top 10" group of friends. Yup that's what we called ourselves the "Top 10".
I was able to find some really good riddles and rhymes to incorporate into the scavenger hunt. Since this little baby was the first of the Top 10 babies I really wanted it to be special. I incorporated everyone's name in each riddle.
Here is the list of riddles.
It started with :
When I am born will I wear pink or blue?
To find out the answer you must follow the clues!
Oh little baby what will you be?
Will you sit like a lady or
stand up to pee?
Will I be like Auntie Judy, who loves to bake?
Or like Uncle Peter who enjoys store bought cake?
( clue under the cake )
Will I wear overalls, or will I wear a dress?
Find the parrot and he will point you to the rest!
(we have a cage with the cursing parrot)
Will I be like Auntie Jackie, who is sweet as pie?
or like Uncle Anthony, who won't eat his eggs even when he's high.
( the fridge with the eggs )
Will I be like Daddy, who loves to read?
Or like Mommy, who loves her ice cream treats?
(the fridge with the eggs)
Will I be like Auntie Carrie, who pees all day?
or like Uncle Danny, that can't keep his sweet tooth at bay?
Will I be like Uncle Miko, who can shop for hours with ease?
Or like Uncle Ren, who can't get enough of the Yankees?
( Duster )
Boy or Girl, I will get lots of lovin',
but to find the answer, look and see what's
baking in the oven!
( In the oven, there is a box in the oven you can't open it until you find the key )
The last clue is kinda tough,
but it's no fun if we don't play rough.
The final clue is in a book.
Find the book and be the first to look!
A classic about the roaring twenties,
Leo brought the story to life,
The infamous title was not Scott's idea,
but inspired by his wife.
( on the book shelf, the riddle answer is "the Great Gatsby" and
inside this book this is a paper key that gives you permission to open the box )
The "oh baby", the bows, the mustache and the baby girl and baby boy profile was cut with my Silhouette Cameo and
The clues were printed on diaper shaped cards with number envelopes. ( note to self take pictures of those items )
And Waa La! it's a BOY!
