Gender Reveal Party Ideas
One of the most exciting parts of being pregnant is finding out whether you’re expecting a little boy or girl, and a gender reveal party is a cool way to get friends and family involved. If you’re planning to find out and share the gender of your baby before he or she is born, here’s how to plan a gender reveal party, as well as some creative party ideas to make your reveal even more memorable and fun. And, once the cat’s out of the bag, you can have some fun deciding on a name for your little one.
Send Your Gender Reveal Invitations
Send your gender reveal party invitations about a month or two in advance. You can find printable invitations online, and some are even free. Many paper shops also stock invites, or you could design your own invitations to perfectly match your theme. You can also save time by sending an email, message, or simply creating an event on social media instead.
Besides the essentials like date, time, location, and RSVP details, specify if you’d like guests to wear an outfit to match your theme or to bring a plate of food to share.
Ideas for Gender Reveal Party Decorations
The most obvious option is having lots of blue and pink decorations. You can buy gender reveal party supplies and make food to match with the help of blue and pink food dye. For unique gender reveal party decorations, here are some ideas:
No matter what theme you choose, you can hang a banner over the front door asking the question that’s on everyone’s mind: “He or she? Come in to see!” or simply, “Boy or girl?”
One of your decorations could double as a game. For example, if your theme is señor or señorita, use a gender reveal piñata as a centerpiece.
For the “What will it bee?” theme, you can provide little honeybee-themed sweets made from icing or cupcakes for your dessert table, or try using strips of black and yellow crepe paper as a decorative tablecloth.
For the mustaches or lipsticks theme, place bowls of fake mustaches and bright pink lipstick on a table so that your guests can pop one on and be part of the decorations, too. This also works well for the bows or bowties theme.
