Creative & fun gender reveal party ideas!

Finding out the gender of your baby is one of the most exciting moments for new parents and their families. We are excited to share some sweet gender reveal ideas for your special day!

1. Colored cakes or cupcakes in pink or blue

I’m a big fan of using dessert to reveal the news. Our first idea is a really fun way to announce the gender of your baby using cupcakes or cake! By adding pink or blue food coloring to a white cake mix, you have a fun way to reveal your baby’s gender!

2. Cute onesie or outfit

One popular way for expecting parents to reveal their baby's gender is to unwrap a baby outfit in front of the party guests. We suggest have your doctor or ultrasound technician write the gender on a slip of paper and then enclose in an envelope. From there, you and your significant other can go to a clothing store to pick out a boy and girl onesie or outfit. You can give the envelope to a cashier or store attendee who can box the correct outfit for you. Then on the big day you will unwrap the gift to see a blue or pink onesie announcing your baby’s gender!

3. Piñata

If you’re having a party with kids, this next idea is quite fun. We suggest nominating a friend to fill a piñata beforehand with pink or blue candy. When the piñata is broken open, your baby’s gender will be revealed. Another piñata idea is to fill the piñata with all your favorite candy and also a blue or pink pacifier. Whoever grabs the pacifier gets to announce the gender.

4. Older sibling reveal

Older sibling reveals are also a popular way for parents with little ones to reveal their next baby’s gender. You can purchase a tee-shirt for your child to wear that says, “Big Brother” or “I’m Having a Baby Brother” (or sister). Your child can wear a hoodie or jacket over top so when its time to reveal he or she can unzip and announce the exciting news! This is a nice way for your little one to be involved and feel special on this day.

5. Balloon launch

Balloons-in-a-box is also a really hot trend. You can put pink or blue balloons in a box and when you open the box the balloons will come flying out, revealing whether you’re having a boy or girl! We suggest having your doctor or ultrasound technician write down the baby's gender, and then having a friend take the closed envelope to a grocery store to have a clerk fill a large box with either pink or blue balloons.

If you’re looking for a smaller-scale idea using balloons we suggest having a party supply store fill a black balloon with either pink or blue confetti. At the party you can use a pin to pop the ballon and surprise you and your guests with your baby’s gender!

We love all of these ideas, but of course there are many ways to reveal. Have fun creating your own way of revealing your baby gender to yourself, family and friends. Kristine King Events wishes you a wonderful gender reveal party!
