Boy Or Girl? 3 Tips For Throwing The Perfect Gender-Reveal Party

by Angel Foster

If you're pregnant, the one question on everyone's mind is "boy or girl?" If you want to make sure everyone finds out at the same time, you can increase the excitement and the festivities by throwing a gender-reveal party. Gender-reveal parties have become a popular way of revealing the gender of your baby-to-be. If you've decided to throw a gender-reveal party, here are three fun ideas to make sure you and your guests get the most out of the exciting moment.

Pick a Theme

When you're planning your gender-reveal party, pick a theme for the festivities. If your party is going to be planned near a major holiday, try incorporating the theme of the party with the holiday. For instance, if you'll be having your party near Thanksgiving, have your guests wear pink or blue turkeys. For an Easter party, you might want to write the gender on a piece of paper and place it in a plastic egg. Send your guests on a hunt to find the egg.

Say It with Balloons

Balloons are another fun way to reveal the identity of your little one. You can even begin the party with an array of pink and blue balloons. Make one balloon bouquet that will be used for the big reveal. Fill all but one of the balloons with white confetti. Fill the last balloon with gender-specific confetti. Let your guests take turns popping balloons until the gender is revealed. Be sure to choose a dark shade of pink or blue to make sure the colored confetti stays hidden. If you prefer to avoid the confetti, you can write the gender on a small piece of paper and place it inside one of the balloons before blowing it up. Once the balloon is popped, your guests can read the piece of paper to discover the gender. 

Do a Blind Reveal

If you want to be surprised, you can get involved in the gender-reveal too. Have the ultrasound technician write the gender down on a piece of paper and place it in an envelope. Take the envelope to your local bakery and ask them to open the envelope. Once they've seen the gender, ask them to bake a cake using either blue or pink batter. You'll find out the gender of your baby when you cut the cake with your guests.

Everyone wants to know whether you're having a boy or a girl. A gender-reveal party will get everyone involved. If you're planning a gender-reveal party, use the ideas provided above to make the big announcement.
