Creative Gender Reveal Party Ideas
There are few events more exciting in people’s lives than having babies. We know many people who would probably put having a newborn near the top of their list of happy life milestones.
And because having a baby is already such a joyous occasion, it’s no wonder so many parents-to-be want to have a little (a lot of) fun with it! New babies tend to bring families together, especially those members who haven’t seen one another in some time.
So, what better way to assemble family and friends around the upcoming birth than by having a fun gender-reveal party? People announce whether their baby will be a boy or a girl in all kinds of interesting ways. It’s all in the surprise and how you pull it off.
At Life Size Custom Cutouts, we’re going to present you with a few creative ideas to make your gender-reveal party one to remember.
The trick with any gender-reveal party is that you want your guests to show up but not immediately know the gender of the baby. You want them to stew awhile and guess. In that case, a color-themed piñata is one fun way to go. It’ll be hanging there throughout the party until you’re ready for the big unveiling. Then, one of you can hit the piñata to send pink or blue confetti streaming everywhere, leading to wild cheers from all in attendance.
Maybe you want to be able to have gender-themed decorations already placed at your party for guests to see. If you’re having just the one baby, then you can keep the secret hidden by displaying decorations for boys and girls. Our It’s a Boy teddy bear cardboard cutout will be great for this, and don’t forget the It’s a Girl teddy bear to go along with it.
These cute figures hold a blue and pink heart, respectively, and will make great centerpieces for your tables or simply decorations for around the party area. Of course, if you want to go a bit more general with your party decor, you can opt for these gender-neutral baby shower cutouts.
Blue or Pink Baked Goods
This one’s an old favorite. You can bake a cake or little cupcakes that have been food-dyed to be blue or pink inside. Serve them to your guests at the right moment, and when they bite into them, they will discover the gender of your new baby!
Colored Smoke or Paint
Some couples get a bit advanced with their gender-reveal ideas by going for things a little more...explosive.
You can have someone fire harmless blue or pink paintballs at you to reveal the gender or use a tire burnout pack to have your car send blue or pink smoke up into the air. Colored smoke bombs are a similar way to go here, as the couple can stand in front of everyone and let blue or pink smoke envelop them.
Any of these stunts is sure to make a great photo op, so be sure you have a photographer planted amongst the guests.
These ideas only scratch the surface of all you can do to reveal your new baby’s gender in an exciting way. No matter what you decide, always be sure to keep it safe but memorable. You don’t get a shot at this every day!
