Pre-Party ChecklistYou want to make sure everything is taken care of before the party so you can be fully present with your family and friends. Below I have listed some important points that you want to take into consideration while planning your gender reveal party.
Party ThemesSometimes parents like to add a theme to their gender reveal party as an extra element of style and fun. Let’s take a look at some different theme ideas 1. Blue vs. Pink Have all of your guests wear the color they think it’s going to be. You can split these colors into two teams and play games – a great time for a competitive family. 2. “What Will It Bee?” Deck out your party with bee-themed decorations. Not only is it super cute, but it’s gender neutral as well. 3. Ultrasound Party Instead of bringing your family and friends into the exam room with you, why not bring the exam room to you? Some couples have admitted to hosting live gender reveals at home. It is a more expensive service, but if you’re looking for something unique yet very personal then this a viable option for sure. 4. A Gender Reveal Surprise Party Invite everyone over without telling them what you’re doing. When they find out that it’s a gender reveal party, seeing their excitement will be something that you’ll cherish forever! 5. Sports-themed Will the baby be a quarterback or a cheerleader? If you’re a couple who loves sports, this theme can be a fun way to incorporate this passion. 6. Fiesta Having a serious hankering for tacos? If you’ve got a case of some pregnancy cravings, try throwing a fiesta! Not only will you be able to serve up some amazing food, but you can have fun with the decorations and music as well. 7. Starry Night “Twinkle twinkle little star, how we wonder what you are!” Deck out your party space with stars. It’s a very easy theme to execute, not to mention it looks incredible. 8. Holiday-themed If your baby is due near a holiday or you are planning your party close to a holiday time, consider using the holiday as your theme. At Easter, for instance, consider giving each guest a plastic egg with a pink or blue candy inside. For Christmas, you could try wrapping small packages with tiny gender revealing objects inside.
Gender Reveal Ideas1. Fireworks Buy a bunch of either blue or pink fireworks depending on the gender of your baby, and light them at the end of the night. This is an excellent idea for those who are having their party near Independence Day or Memorial Day. It’s festive, and who doesn’t like a good fireworks show? 2. Pinata if you don’t like to take things too seriously, have a pinata and blindfold the hitters. This idea would work well with a fiesta-themed reveal party. Just fill the pinata will either blue or pink candy and you’re good to go! 3. Not Your Average Balloon Pop Pop a balloon to reveal the gender of your baby, but not the traditional way. Instead, tape a bunch of paint-filled black balloons to a large canvas. You and your spouse throw darts, until they all pop. The color of the paint inside will reveal the gender!
Get varying shades of either pink or blue paint to create a unique art piece you can keep forever.4. Treasure Hunt Create your own gender reveal treasure hunt! Fill a small chest or decorated box with something pink or blue – candies, a onesie,, or anything fun. Draw up a map and have your family and guests find the treasure chest. If you’re feeling adventurous you can even bury it. 5. Bonfire Toss a flame-color-changing chemical to share gender of the baby, and maybe cook some s’mores while you’re at it. 6. Bow and Arrow If you and your spouse are thrill-seekers, give the bow and arrow a shot. Put a balloon on a target with pink or blue paint inside. Using a bow and arrow, hit the target to reveal the gender. 7. Silly String Have all family and friends spray silly string on the lucky couple. The color of the silly string will reveal the baby’s gender. This is a great one for couples who will not know the gender of their baby prior to the party. 8. Fortune Cookies If you’re a foodie at heart, you will love this one. Put the gender of baby in the fortune cookie! It may be tedious, but it certainly unique. 9. Baby’s First Outfit Put either a girl or boy onesie in a wrapped box. Upon opening it, family and friends will be able to see the gender. 10. Spill the Beans Spill the beans – literally. Fill a bag full of either pink or blue beans. When it comes time for the reveal, pour out the beans to show whether it will be a boy or girl. 11. Pet Announcement If you have a cat or dog, you can organize for them to come out to the guests at announcement time wearing something around their neck to announce the gender. It might be a pink or blue ribbon, or anything else you can think of. 12. Arm Wrestle That’s right, arm wrestle. Have you and your spouse compete – whoever “wins” is what the gender of the baby will be! Clever and entertaining.
