The gender reveal party trend has exploded in the last years and people are looking for reasons to celebrate. Here are some unique ways to reveal baby’s gender for baby shower ideas.
Balloons-in-a-box is one of the hottest trends going. Have a party and open a giant package while all your guests look on. Inside will be pink helium balloons if it’s a girl. Blue balloons if it’s a boy. Or, pop a balloon with pink or blue confetti inside.
Make It a Game
Have guests guess baby’s gender. At the end of the party, announce what it is. Everyone who guessed correctly gets a trinket to take home with them.
Gender Reveal Desserts
Getting creative with food can be an easy way to make your party extra festive – just don’t forget the food dye!
Big Brother or Big Sister Announcing
If you have an older child, let him (or her!) announce baby’s gender by wearing a shirt that says, “I’m getting a baby brother!” or “I’m getting a baby sister!”
Love Photo shopping your favorite photos? Do it to baby’s ultrasound pic! Add a pink bow or a blue tie to baby’s sonogram, frame it and send it to his or her future grandparents.
Baby Shower Themes
Today’s expecting parents are using fun themes for their reveals, such as pregnancy cravings (think pickles, ice cream, and potato chips) or ducks (hang up a “waddle it be” banner).You can also let holidays guide the theme. “Our friend had her gender reveal in October, and everyone wore either a pink or blue pumpkin pin” says one BabyCenter expecting mom. Or simply pink for baby girl shower ideas and blue for baby boy shower ideas.
Have gifts delivered to the grandparents-to-be. On the tag, write, “Baby is a…” Inside, layer pink and blue tissue, nested boxes, confetti — and whatever else you can find to keep them guessing! At the bottom, a boy’s outfit, or a girl’s outfit will be waiting for them to find.
One popular way for expecting parents to reveal their baby’s sex is to unwrap a baby outfit in front of party guests.
Have a picture taken of your feet, your partner’s and an empty pair of baby girl or baby boy shoes.
Make those guests commit! Ask everyone to wear either pink or blue, or provide gender-specific accessories, such as pink and blue bead necklaces, pins, leis, or temporary tattoos. One inspired couple gave out cardboard mustaches and lips on sticks.
