Whilst some parents don’t mind waiting until the baby is born, others want to find out as soon as possible. A fun way to reveal this to friends, family, and your older children (if you have any) is by hosting a gender reveal party. You can plan the party however you want to and make it a personal experience for your nearest and dearest. We’ve highlighted some of our favourite ideas below.
Create a theme
You don’t want to give the gender of the baby away so aim for decorations in neutral tones or both blue and pink. Go all out with balloons, streamers, party plates and cups, and napkins. Consider pink and blue frosting on cupcakes or pink and blue cocktails to really vamp up the gender reveal theme.
The cake reveal
Popular on the reveal list is cutting into a cake to find out the gender of the baby. It’s up to you how creative you’d like to be. You could have a neutral frosting on the outside of the cake with the frosting inside of the cake revealing the gender of the baby or you could hollow out the cake and fill the middle with pink or blue sweets that fall out when you cut into the cake.
The balloon reveal
Buy pink or blue helium-filled balloons that rise from a large, gift-wrapped box to reveal the gender of the baby. Or you could pop an opaque balloon filled with blue or pink confetti for the reveal. To make things interesting, do a best two out of three and have your friends and family guess what they think the gender of the baby will be.
The t-shirt reveal
Dress your older child with a themed t-shirt that either says ‘I’m getting a baby sister’ or ‘I’m getting a baby brother’ to get them involved with the gender reveal. You can also take pictures of them to post online or send to friends and family to let them know the gender.
The Pinata reveal
Go for a neutral outside with the inside filled with pink or blue treats for everyone to enjoy. Take turns to hit the pinata and once the treats fall out the gender of the baby will be revealed. This is a great way to get children and adults involved with the reveal.
There are plenty of ways to create a personalised experience for you. Don’t forget, if you want to be surprised on the day, make sure to get the gender written down prior and ask a friend or family to head the party planning.
