Cake or no cake?

We want to share our pregnancy news with our friends this weekend (already told family). We will be celebrating my graduation, DH's birthday and our pregnancy! We're throwing a big BBQ and my DH wants to have a pink and blue cake to celebrate our baby but I told him that's usually for gender reveals or baby showers and not a simple announcement. But since this is our first, he's really excited and is dead set on having a blue and pink cake! LOL what should I do?

  • Get a cake!  If you're really opposed to a pink and blue cake you can always get a more celebratory- or baby-themed cake.

  • I voted get the cake!  Let him have his fun!  And give anyone who's negative about it a big old eye roll :wink:

  • Sounds awesome, do it! There's no reason you can't have a blue/pink cake for just announcing. Also kind of dumb that it could even be a thing, but be mentally prepared to explain that you're not having boy and girl twins :)

  • @colleenkevin he said that's what he wants as his birthday cake so it shouldn't matter! Hahaha
  • @canavara good point. Maybe I'll make sure it says comin soon or due in Jan '17. 
  • Girl, if that's what you guys want, go for it! I see nothing wrong. People announce/celebrate all kinds of ways.
