For many parents-to-be, one of the most exciting things about pregnancy is knowing the gender of your new baby! That is why gender reveal parties have gained so much popularity in recent years. This revealing party is also typically done around the seventh or eighth month when the gender is already detectable in the sonogram. Of course, there is no one specific way to celebrate the gender of your baby. But if you haven’t decided yet, here are 5 creative ideas for your gender reveal party.
1. Popping balloons
Balloons are a fun way to announce the gender of your baby. You can go for traditional blue or pink balloons, or choose neutral-colored balloons or even black to create more suspense and a more classic look. Balloons are also a great item to use at an indoor venue because they are easy to clean or pick up afterward. Any gender reveal celebration works well with balloons, as they always get to make everyone feel warm and happy.
2. Using shirts
This idea might sound confusing but is actually very cute and easy to coordinate. Just make sure to have friends and family of the parents wear the shirts, which can be white, and at the back can have a text that says “it’s a girl” or boy. Once the expecting parents enter the room or venue, those who are wearing the revealing shirt can turn around on the count of 3! Shirts are also a fantastic way to keep a gender reveal celebration’s memories alive.
3. Use a piñata
This is one of the funniest gender reveal ideas, as guests love hitting the piñata to find out what is inside of it. The piñata can be anything, and it can be as colorful or as minimalist as you want it to be. To make the announcement more exciting, make sure to fill the piñata with blue or pink colored candies, confetti, and silly strings.
4. Reveal box
A reveal box has become a trendy centerpiece at many gender reveal parties. Basically, it is a big box that contains elements that reveal the baby’s gender. These elements can be balloons, puppies with pink or blue ribbons, and even baby essentials like clothing. Depending on the size of the box you can put anything in.
5. A gender reveal cake
Is there a tastier way to announce the gender of your child? Pastry lover parents cannot resist having an over-the-top cake with elements inside that reveal the gender of the baby. This is perfect for a very elegant and chic reveal party. The answer to “he or she?” lies within, and the baker must fill the inside with pink or blue tinted buttercream, candies, or any other creative idea.
