Gender Reveal Party Ideas
Gender Reveal Party Ideas
The gender of an unborn baby used to be one of life’s greatest mysteries. Mums and Dads didn’t know for certain whether or not their child was a boy or a girl until delivery. Thanks to advances in ultrasound technology, which enable folks to know their baby’s gender with near-total certainty, those days are over.
The ability to know a baby’s gender before birth has led to the growing popularity of gender reveal parties in recent years. Expectant parents gather a group of close friends and loved ones and the gender of the baby is revealed with the creative use of confetti or similarly color-coded celebrations. Blue means its a boy and pink signifies it’s a girl.
While there is nothing wrong with throwing a basic gender reveal party, expectant parents might want to consider trying more creative ways to reveal whether they’re having a boy or a girl. The following are some interesting general reveal ideas to consider before settling on the go-to options:
The Cake Gender Reveal
This one is perfect if you want everyone to stay in the dark about the gender until the very moment of the reveal. Why? Because the parents can take the ultrasound in a sealed envelope directly to a bakery and have the cake specially made (get the ultrasound tech to write the gender on the back of the scan and seal it up without saying anything). Not even a friend or family member has to know.
The trick of the cake is a blue or pink centre (edible, of course) that reveals its delicious secrets when the first slice is cut. You can also let all the guests in on the reveal by getting a batch of centre-filled cupcakes instead.
By the way — points all round for cakes, because your gender reveal also doubles as dessert.
This option is less violent than it sounds. A nondescript black balloon contains either blue or pink confetti. When the time is right, expectant parents pop the balloon exploding confetti and glitter into the air revealing the gender in the process.
Piñata Gender Reveal
The piñata has so much going for it. It has a long and rich history, used by different cultures for good luck and celebration. It builds suspense because you never know how long it will take to crack. Oh, and most of all… it’s fun!
As a gender-reveal idea the piñata is simple. Fill a papier-mâché or cloth container with candy or confetti (you can even buy them pre-made) and get either parents, siblings, or guests to take turns hitting it until it bursts open and spills its secret to the gasping crowd.
Gender Reveal Box
Gender reveal boxes have become one of the most popular gender reveal ideas. For this, you take a large box and fill it with either pink or blue balloons. When you open the box, the balloons will fly out to reveal the gender of your baby. Just have someone double-check that the balloons are the right colour!
A simple gender reveal idea involves using smoke bomb sticks. These fun little gadgets release blue or pink smoke for a little over a minute, allowing for everyone to easily see whether the expectant parents are having a boy or a girl.
