The latest thing in baby showers/pregnancy parties have been parents having a gender reveal party! It is such a wonderful way to share in the surprise of the gender of your baby with your closest friends and family! Check out when you will find out the gender of your baby on our pregnancy to do list! If you are looking to do a gender reveal party, but want to find out the gender during the party, you can contact someone like Oooh Baby Baby or talk to your doctor about writing the gender on a piece of paper and sealing it! At that point you can take it to a bakery and they can make a cake with pink or blue icing! Whatever way you decide it will be a memory you will never forget!
Here is some pictures from a favorite gender reveal party:
First up, they had a box that was decorated with bows and mustaches, inside the box was balloons filled with helium in the color of the gender of the baby (blue for boys, pink for girls).
They also had all of the guests pick what they thought the gender of the baby was.
Next up they had a list of all the “Old Wives Tales” on what the gender of the baby was. You can find out more about the Old Wives Tales, here.
Other cute ides with gender reveal parties are –
Have your doctor write down the gender and seal the envelope. Take it to a baker and have them fill the cake with either blue or pink icing depending what gender is in the envelope. This way everyone finds out at the same time, when you cut the cake!
Have a shower, like a normal shower, but ask guest come dressed in either pink or blue, depending on what gender they think the baby is, have someone who is close to the family (but able to keep a secret) fill a dark-colored balloon with either pink or blue confetti, for the reveal pop the balloon! Our friends at Teacups and Trucks have a balloon bar and can custom make your reveal balloon!
You can also have your family pet come out wearing a particular color bandanna to surprise family and friends. Or do a video to tell family and friends who live far away!
