Why have one party when you can have two? The traditional baby shower is a fun event for expecting parents to gather with friends and family prior to the baby's arrival. More recently another baby bash is making a name for itself: gender reveal parties. These parties usually occur more so in the beginning of the pregnancy and are a great way for parents to announce the gender of their baby! Much like baby showers they may include games, gifts, and of course tons of yummy food! Finding out the gender of your baby is a gift in itself and as happy as you were to find out, your family is sure to be just as excited! Here are some ideas to make your gender reveal party the sweetest celebration of the year!
#1 Pick Teams
Here’s what’s hot! Themes, games, favors, and posting on Pinterest are all the rage. Have your guests pick Team Pink or Team Blue and come dressed with those colors to the party. Use fake mustaches for the boys’ team and paper lips for the girls’ team to hold up. Don’t forget to take hilarious photos to post!
#2 Bite Into A Cupcake
Even surprise yourself! Have someone seal the gender in an envelope and have your favorite bakery fill with the appropriate filling inside a cake or cupcakes. “It was a blast when we bit into the cupcake and had no idea what was inside!”
#3 Break Open A Piñata
Fill it with blue or pink M&M’s, Gummy bears and all kinds of color matched candy and confetti. You, your husband or even another child can break open the piñata!
#4 Balloons In A Box
Decorate a big box and fill it with helium balloons. “When we broke it open… They rose out everyone screamed with excitement!”
