What is gender reveal party and how to plan it

Gender reveal show

The birth of a child is an unusually important and exciting event in the life of a couple. Who will be born: a boy or a girl? You can get the answer the old fashioned way — within the walls of the hospital room, or you can … Arrange for this a real holiday — Gender reveal party! This is a solemn event where the gender of the child is communicated to both guests and future parents. Yes, yes, even for a couple everything remains a secret.

Where to start planning?

The first thing you should do is determine the date and time of your event. As a rule, Baby Shower arrange at the 7th month of pregnancy. And it is no coincidence! Firstly, this is the period when the expectant mother is already the owner of a noticeably rounded tummy, which, of course, is very important for beautiful and memorable photos, and, secondly, she feels great and comfortable to take part in the party. Also, after the holiday, future parents will have enough time to receive a lot of useful children’s things as a gift from the guests and buy the remaining necessary things for the unborn baby.

Where to have a gender reveal party?
There are many options, it all depends on your budget, number of guests and season. For the summer Baby Shower, parks, gardens and other outdoor locations are ideal. For colder and cloudier months, consider photo studios, private dining rooms and loft spaces. If you are planning a small holiday for 5-7 people, then you can arrange a nice and cozy holiday without leaving your home.
At the same stage, think about the special decor and theme of your event. You can stylize the room for your favorite cartoon, order pastel colors, decorate the space with fresh flowers. The chosen topic in the future will help you determine the menu, the styling of invitations, the program of the event and the format of souvenirs for guests.

Having determined the date, decide on the budget of your event. It is better that the future dad takes up financial calculations: there is a risk that under the influence of hormones the expectant mother may overestimate the possibilities of the family budget.

Who to invite?

Initially, Baby Shower was considered a bachelorette party and the expectant mother invited close friends, sisters and female family members. Recently, the trend has changed a bit — dads also want to take an active part in such events. Particularly desperate couples even arrange two Baby Shower: female and male. Thus, both parents spend time with loved ones, are charged with energy, receive a bunch of useful tips and twice as many gifts. In our opinion, a great option! 🙂

How to inform the guests about the holiday?

In about 6 weeks, send an invitation to your guests. In this case, they will have enough time to reserve a place for the event on their calendar and find a suitable gift. If you want to add a little creativity, you can prepare thematic printed invitation cards. Although in the age of online and media technology, you can create an original version of the invitation through social networks.

What is the program of the event?

Baby Shower usually lasts 2-3 hours and consists mainly of pleasant conversations over a glass of non-alcoholic champagne and gluten-free cupcakes. Take time to open gifts and thank each guest separately. Sometimes in the Baby Shower program include additional activities:
— A book with tips and suggestions. Prepare an album or notebook in advance, where your guests can leave wishes, compliments and share tips. To make the album bright and original, buy felt-tip pens, colored pencils, sparkles and other elements to decorate the book for decoration. Inspire your guests with creativity.
— Circle skillful pens. Buy white sheets, body, t-shirts and nontoxic paints for design. Let each guest feel like a fashion designer and take part in creating an element of the wardrobe for the baby.
— Raffle prizes. Conduct a survey among guests on the topic “when will the baby be born?” After the baby is born, send a gift to the guest whose option was closest to the significant date.

Thanks to the guests

Now that the gender of the child is known, you can give all guests cute bonbonnieres with gifts in the form of booties, strollers, baby bottles. In addition to small presents in bonbonnieres, you can immediately put invitations to a party on the occasion of the birth of a child.

Why do you need to arrange this?

  •  This is a very important moment in your life and you must remember it.
  •  It’s much cooler than notifying your friends and relatives via SMS: «we will have a girl.» You invite the people closest to you and they inspire you with their emotions.
  •  It’s an important and exciting family holiday that you can look back to when the kids grow up, so be sure to film it all on video.

Technically, this happens as follows: on one of the ultrasounds, when it is already possible to determine the sex of the child, usually in the second trimester of pregnancy, the doctor writes «he» or «she» on a piece of paper, seals it in an envelope and passes it to future parents. And then the most interesting thing begins: checking your own willpower, quieting your curiosity, and running at speed to a trusted person who is more patient than You and is more likely to «die than reveal the secret», for example, the organizer of your holiday.

In order for the party to be bright and fun you need to pay attention to the following points:
Decor. The design of the party is dominated by blue and pink shades. Create invitations for your guests in these colors and ask them to have an element of pink or blue in their bow — this way they will Express their guesses about who their future parents are expecting.
Entertainments. You can arrange a vote among the guests. For example, put a Board at the entrance and divide it into two parts: «boy» and «girl» — if the voice is for a girl, then glue a pink bow on the appropriate side, for a boy — a blue butterfly.
Disclosure. This moment is the most long-awaited, magical and exciting at this party. Here are some interesting ways you can find out «he» or » she»:

1. Balloons for gender reveal

A large black ballon filled with blue or pink color. Usually, candy or powder is used as a filler.

Using balloons in a box is a fun way to reveal the news. Pack the box with pink or blue balloons if you already know the baby’s gender, or have someone else do it if you and your partner want to be surprised along with your guests.

Decorate a large box and fill it with pink or blue balloons. Also in the box you can hide the already finished balls in the shape of a boy or girl. You can hide anyone or anything, whether it be a set of clothes for a newborn or a relative (or a pet), on which there will be identification signs of the floor, such as a pink scarf and a hat …. the main thing is to give free rein to you or to those who will to organize this event.

cake gender reveal

A popular way is to enclose a child’s gender response in a birthday cake. Ask the uzist not to tell you the gender of the baby, but to write it on a piece of paper and put it in an envelope. Now this envelope will be a kind of technical task for the baker. Pass the envelope to the baker and ask him to make a cake filling, depending on who is indicated on the sheet. In order not to accidentally find out the gender of the child, you can ask someone from your loved ones to order a holiday cake. The whole holiday you will be in anticipation of cutting the cake and together with the guests will find out the gender of your child. You can not only soak the filling with the desired dye, but also ask the pastry chef to pour blue or pink in the center of the M & Ms cake.

 

5.Confetti Cannon

If you’re hosting a gender reveal party, gather up a stash of these gender reveal poppers—either pink or blue—and have your guests give them a good tug! (Or, get two for you and your partner and set off the cannons yourselves.) It’s sure to step up the festive vibe and create the perfect photo (you’ll look like you’re in a parade!).

Here We simply prepare cannon with confetti of the right color and use them at the right time. It looks very impressive when a large number of guests together with future parents blow up at the same time these cannon. If you’re interested, here is a link to this type of product.

6. Sports equipment

If you’re hosting a sports-themed gender reveal party, batter up! Have your gender reveal party guests don pink or blue to cast their votes, then see which team won by hitting one of these colored powder-filled baseballs out of the park. (You can also choose a football or soccer ball.)

You can choose from a wide range of sports, with the help of which you can reveal the secret of the future sex of the child. I met these: a baseball, a soccer ball, football, basketball, a puck, golf balls, shooting a target or darts …. Most importantly, in each ball or target there is powder of the desired color.

7. Using cars or motorcycles

If you don’t feel like messing with balls and sweets, and the idea of holding a party doesn’t leave you? then you can use the means at hand. You can use a car, motorbikes or a neighbor’s truck for this.

Here, mainly colored powder is used which is placed under the wheels of cars or motorcycles, drivers start to slip on the spot, erasing the shell, thus reaching the powder, forming a colored cloud symbolizing the sex of the child. Also, there are variations of the use of balloons filled with powder, they are put on the exhaust systems of a car or a motorcycle, the balloons inflate and then burst.

This is a very fun option for gender reveal party.  Its essence is that the person for whom it will be decided to wear an inflatable suit, was the most fun and groovy.

Another interesting way would be a pinata filled with pink or blue confetti. Of course, it’s not worthwhile to force mom to break a pinata, let the future father try. Confetti color will tell who the expectant mother is expecting. Piñata can be filled not only with confetti, but also with various presents for the baby, because now its gender is known, and you can safely fill the piñata with booties, nipples, rattles and other accessories for the baby.

Pinata is usually filled with Confetti or with balloons of the desired color and in a solemn atmosphere it is opened or disassembled. If you’re interested, here is a link to this type of product.
