Whether you’re hosting a Gender Reveal Party or you just want a cute way to tell family and friends that you are having a baby boy or girl, we’ve got our top 10 gender revealing ideas to help you make the big announcement.
1. Coloured Cakes
Who doesn’t like cake? By adding pink or blue food coloring to a white cake mix and covering the cake completely with frosting, you have a fun way to reveal your baby’s gender. Make sure you ice the cake completely so that no colour peeks through and spoils the surprise.
2. Gender Reveal Balloons In A Box
In the world of gender reveal parties, helium balloons in a box may be gaining on cake and cupcakes as the hottest gender announcement trend around! All you need is large packing box and the assistance of your local party supplier to fill the box with blue or pink coloured helium balloons then you open the box and let the reveal happen.
3. The Envelope, Please…
If you can handle the anticipation, have your ultrasound technician or OB write your baby’s gender on a piece of paper and seal it in an envelope. Open the envelope in front of your guests, or let an honored guest (mother in law perhaps???) open it and announce what you’re expecting.
4. Confetti Push Pops
When it’s time for the big reveal, gather your guests and hand out these poppers available from Gender Reveal on Etsy. Leave the caps on, and don’t hold back—a big push works best—then watch the blue or pink confetti mix fly!
5. Gender Reveal Party Piñata
Don’t let the kids have all the fun! Announce the gender of your baby with a gender reveal piñata. Most pinatas can be purchased empty from Spotlight or party supply stores, just pack yours with pink or blue confetti, lollies, glitter or whatever takes your fancy then have your guests take turns trying to crack it open.
6. Pop goes the News!
Buy a balloon for every person at the gender reveal. Before you blow them up, put some pink or blue confetti inside each balloon. Hand everybody a balloon and a pin. Count to three and have everyone pop their balloon. The confetti will scatter and everyone will know if it’s a boy or a girl.
