Throwing a gender reveal party is such a fun way to include friends & family in the excitement of the pregnancy. There are several fun ways to break the news, & we have come up with five different options for you that your guests are sure to love. Make sure to start with the right gender reveal baby shower invitations to start the party off on the right foot.
When throwing the baby shower, if you do not know the baby’s gender, have the parents write the sex of the baby on a piece of paper. Then take an empty box to the party store & hand them the paper with the baby’s gender on it. Have them fill the box with either pink or blue balloons. Make sure they seal the box. Then at the party, you can have the soon to be mother open the box to reveal a floating mass of either pink of blue balloons.
If you are looking for a little less expensive option instead of filling a big box full of balloons you can do the same thing but with confetti. Still, hand the party store employee a paper with the gender of the baby & then have them fill one black balloon or very dark colored balloon with either pink or blue confetti. Then at the party have the mother to be pop the balloon to reveal the gender.
Doing a gender reveal with paint will take a little bit of planning to pull off. You will need to paint your partner’s hands in either blue or pink paint. Then take two pictures. The first is with your partner’s hands on the stomach of the mommy to be. The second picture will be with the hands removed revealing the hand prints in either pink or blue paint. Then at the baby shower have the 1st photo displayed next to the second photo covered.
Using silly string to reveal your baby’s gender can be a ton of fun. Cover each can with kraft paper & remove the lids. Then give everyone a countdown. Then when the fun begins, there will be a flurry of pink or blue string flying through the air. Speaking from experience try & do this outside that much silly string indoors can cause a nightmare for cleanup.
Who doesn’t love cupcakes? You won’t find a better way to let the secret out of what you are having than to take cupcakes & then fill the centers with either the pink or blue frosting. This way your guests not only get to see what the gender of the baby is but they get to enjoy a delicious cupcake at the same time.
