Pink or blue? A gender reveals party has become one of the most important ceremonies in the 21st century. New ideas on how to have a unique party are emerging every day. A gender reveals party is a ceremony where friends and family gather, and the couple announces the sex of the unborn child.
Guests are not expected to bring any gifts. They are only there to eat either a pink or blue slice of cake. If your wife is expecting a baby, here are several ideas that you can use to give her the best gender reveal party experience.
Spoiler alert: Number 5 is the most thoughtful and fancy way to do it.
1. Gender Reveal Cake
If you are on a budget, a reveal cake can be very economical. This is because it plays both the reveal and food role for your guests. You can either buy one or bake it yourself. Use a neutral color like yellow or white for the outside front of the cake, and add pink or blue coloring to the cake batter. At the reveal party, serve your guests with a slice of cake to reveal the gender of the baby.
2. Gender Reveal Box
This is one of the popular ways to show the baby’s gender. You simply put balloons in a box, and once you open it, they fly high, revealing the baby’s gender. Ensure you have someone double-check the color of the balloons before the reveal.
3. Gender Reveal Pictures
If you are away from your friends and relatives, this method will work perfectly for you.
You can take a family photo, either wearing pink or blue and send your friends and family through a postcard. You can also have a photo holding tiny pink or blue shoes.
Other ideas for a family photo reveal photo include:
- Painting your baby bump blue or pink
- Blowing a pink or blue bubble gum.
- Throw pink or blue confetti
4. Gender Reveal Cupcakes or Pops
Pops and cupcakes are another unique way of revealing a baby’s gender when serving dessert.
The inside of the pops and cakes can be filled with either a blue or pink cake.
Unlike the party cake, where the slice already reveals the gender, this can be more fun.
The guests can all bite the pop or cupcake at the same time to reveal the gender of the baby.
5. Diamond Gender Reveal Ring
As I promised earlier, this idea is fancy and very unique. If your wife is into trends, then getting rings for Diamond Gender Reveals is a unique option. These rings are in the colored rainbow colors that are available so you can choose pink or blue. During the ceremony, you can come up with some special, emotional speech for your wife thanking her for carrying your child, and put the diamond ring on her. She can then flaunt it for the guests to see. This is special because she will always have a ring as a reminder of the party.
6. Gender Reveal Paint
This is another budget-friendly way of revealing the baby’s gender. You can buy a can of paint and open it during the ceremony. If you want to go the extra mile, you can buy water guns and let the guests shoot at you and your wife. To ensure the color of the photos stands out, wear white clothes.
7. Gender Reveal Bonfire
If your wife is into adventure and camping, this could be another excellent idea. You can plan a little getaway for family and friends to reveal the gender. During the little camping session, light a bonfire and toss chemicals to change the flame to the desired color. Be careful, and do your research to avoid any accidents.
8. Gender Reveal Fireworks
If fireworks are legal in your area, then this is a perfect idea.
You can set off fireworks in either blue or pink to reveal the gender to the guests.
9. Gender Reveal Scratch Cards
This is another creative way to reveal the gender of your baby. While you can provide the guests with the scratch cards in the reveal party, this method is best for revealing the baby gender to relatives who are far.
10. Gender Reveal Dust
Give your guests small sachets with mysterious dust in them. Provide them with water bottles and ask them to pour the blue/pink dust in the water.
A gender reveal party has become a widespread tradition in this century. I hope that you can draw a great idea from the 10 I discussed above. Remember to comment below and tell us which one your favorite is, and add more ideas for new moms to see.
