What is a Gender Reveal Party? A gender reveal party is a party to announce a new arrival in the family! It is a fun new way to reveal the gender of your little peanut to-be and celebrates the newest soon-to-be born member of your family. Gender Reveal Parties are so much fun for parents to be and it’s a great way to include the extended family in this new stage of your life. Friends will also feel more involved, and they will appreciate being included in the excitement. So, invite all your loved ones to find out the gender of your new baby and celebrate this during this beautiful time of your life.
Decorating with pink and blue is an obvious tip for your party, but there are a lot of creative ways to do this. I have seen so many cute ways to not only decorate but to include your friends and family in the fun! Ask your guests to come dressed in the color of their gender guess. It will be so much fun to see who comes in pink and who comes in blue! I have also seen some fun old wives’ tale games, where the mom answers old wives’ tales to help guest’s guess whether this new baby is a little mister or misses. Some families take it even further, keeping themselves in the dark about their new baby’s gender. They have the doctor’s office write down the gender and seal it in an envelope. This take some serious restraint on those parents not to peek! Then a trusted family member or friend does the gender reveal for them.
One of the most exciting ways to do the final reveal is to shoot a gender reveal confetti cannon into the air near the end of the party. Our confetti cannons are made with compressed air, and they shoot bright pink or blue biodegradable paper confetti up to 15 feet high. You simply hold the gender reveal confetti cannon with one hand and twist the bottom with the other. Then POP a cloud of festive pink or blue tissue paper falls down around you. Our confetti cannons can be launched indoors or out.
You can involve all your friends and family in the party by asking them to help make pink and blue cookies to celebrate. Set up a cookies station with all pink and blue frosting and sprinkles! This is a fun way to have some sweets and an activity for the kiddos as well. Another fun party idea is to give guests a memento to take with them to remember your gender reveal party. Photo booths are a ton of fun plus it gives your guest a picture that one day they can show your little one. It is so fun to have these little keepsakes to show kids years later that you were there they day their mommy and daddy found out that you were their little prince or princess.
