Discovering the gender of your expecting baby is always a thrilling and exciting experience for soon-to-be parents. Why not throw an epic gender reveal party to share this joy, and celebrate with your loved ones?
Figuring out the gender of your new baby is one of the most important aspects of pregnancy. These days, parents very much prefer discovering it along with their loved ones rather than finding it out during the ultrasound.
This has become one of the most popular and common trends among pregnant couples, nowadays.
Unlike baby showers, which celebrate the upcoming birth of a new baby, a gender reveal party includes the element of mystery of anticipating the baby’s gender, making the event all the more exciting and meaningful.
It can either be a large gathering or an intimate one with your closest friends and family. This event has no formal rules. The idea of this event is for the parents to share their good news with the ones they care about, and celebrate it in a unique and memorable way.
Here are some tips from The Los Angeles Videographers to host a party for your friends and loved ones to celebrate the gender reveal of your baby together.
1. Pick a venue
The location of the party is entirely up to you. Your home, a quiet beach house, or an event venue will all suffice, depending on how many people you want to invite and the atmosphere you want to create!
To host an epic gender reveal party, find a unique venue to share the good news with your family and friends. If you want to go beyond the traditional parties, host your event at a ranch or a vineyard to make your gender reveal even more epic.
Once the location is set, you can focus on sending out your invitations to everyone that you want to include in your epic gender reveal.
2. Be creative with food & cakes
Food and catering are the core elements of any party. Whether you go for a ‘ties and tutus’ or a ‘stashes and lashes’ theme or even if you just decide on a simple blue and pink theme, the possibilities of a creative snack table are endless. Common favorites include cake pops and cupcakes with the central layer dyed in blue or pink, gender-themed candies, colored deviled eggs, and such.
3. Including Games
Gender reveal parties are typically a mix of socializing and playing a few games. Choose games that will pique everyone’s interest in learning whether you’re expecting a boy or a girl.
For instance, hold a guess-the-gender raffle, or have a game where everyone has to guess their favorite boy and girl names from a list. To amp up the entertainment, frame an ultrasound photo and have guests guess the gender.
You can be creative with the prizes to make such games even more entertaining!
4. THE BIG REVEAL of your epic gender reveal party
Is it a boy or a girl? That is the ultimate question.
The big reveal should definitely be something big in a way that you and your guests can enjoy and treasure for a lifetime.
By far, the most common way to reveal the baby’s sex is through food. This frequently entails a cake with neutral decorations on the frosting outside and a colored layer; pink for a girl and blue for a boy on the inside. When the big reveal arrives, the expectant parents will cut into the cake to reveal the baby’s gender to the guests and celebrate. You could also hand out cupcakes with the respective-colored frosting inside and have guests bite into their cupcakes at the same time for the big reveal.
If you don’t want to do the traditional cake reveal, here are some recommended alternatives:
- Fire off pink or blue confetti cannons.
- Create scratch-off cards that reveal the baby’s gender.
- Pop open a pink or blue stuffed piñata
- Pop open an opaque balloon filled with pink or blue confetti.
5. Documenting your epic gender reveal party
As you’ll be busy mingling with your guests, hiring a professional photographer or videographer to document the event for your little one, is extremely useful. The surprised and excited expressions of you and your guests are definitely worth capturing for the rest of your lives.
Make sure you create a great post-event video or photo album with all the great captures.
You can also consider taking Polaroid photos of you and your guests and asking them to write special wishes for the new baby on them. You may also ask each of your guests to record a special message for your little one’s arrival!
