Congratulation on your pregnancy. As with every pregnancy, it is indeed joyful and exciting to find out the gender of your child. Whether you are aware of your baby’s gender and would like to surprise your friends and family, or you are not aware of your baby’s gender and would like to find out together with your friends and family, a gender reveal party is the way to celebrate this special moment, and there are many ways to do so.
In this article, we will guide you step-by-step on organising a gender reveal party, whether for yourself or for your parents-to-be friends or family member.
Step 1: Save the date and set out invitations
It is always recommended to plan in advance so that you are able to ascertain the guest list. Also, do consider in your party plans the date you or the parents-to-be baby’s gender ultrasound. A gender reveal ultrasound usually happens as early as 14 weeks into the pregnancy. Therefore, the gender reveal party should happen soon after.
Your invitation should help to build up excitement and suspense for the reveal. Hence, including a poll structure, such as getting guests to come to the party in either pink or blue based on their guesses if the baby is going to be a girl or boy, respectively, is the way to amp up the party vibe.
Step 2: Add the decorations
Decorations are an essential element of parties. You will want to continue building up the excitement and suspense for the reveal with themed decorations. One good way is to mix pink and blue balloon garlands, arches, and props to keep your guests guessing. If coloured themes are not what you are looking for, how about going for party themes, such as princes vs princesses or mermaids vs pirates?
Step 3: Plan some games
The whole point of a gender reveal party is for the couple’s friends and family to know the gender of the baby, as well as the parents-to-be, if they so decide not to know the baby’s gender early. Capitalising on the excitement for the reveal can be additional guessing games and activities, such as hanging up pictures of the ultrasounds and getting guests to vote on the baby’s gender, or baby shower bingo, where attendees cross off newborn-related words.
Step 4: The reveal
This is the moment everybody is waiting for, and the main reason why the party was organised. The first step is to decide if you prefer to know the baby’s gender together with everyone. If so, get your sonographer to write the baby’s gender on a piece of paper during the ultrasound and pass it to the one who is planning the party. The gender reveal can be done in several ways, from popping a helium balloon filled with either pink or blue or maybe both if you are having different gender twins to cutting a cake with pink or blue on the inside.
