What is a gender reveal party?
Gender reveals are one of the hottest new party concepts to hit the baby shower market. It gives soon-to-be parents an opportunity to announce the biological sex of their baby in fun, elaborate fashion. While gender reveals are a relatively new trend, it is steadily growing. In fact, Pinterest searches for “creative gender reveal ideas” have increased nearly 400% since 2017.
Here’s how it works: The expectant couple hosts friends and family for the event, which can be held in conjunction with the baby shower or separately. The party should be filled with an equal mix of pink and blue decorations, lots of snacks, and baby themed party games. After much anticipation, the party culminates in the big reveal. There are lots of different ways to share the news (some more explosive than others). We staged a gender reveal party that sparkles and keeps your guests bursting with excitement!
Shoot for the stars
To complete the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star theme, you’ll need plenty of star decorations. We tied our silver and gold star garlands to balloons as tails, as well as strung shorter pieces of the star garland on top of the dessert table for a dash of flair. Gold star birthday candles work wonderfully as cupcake decorations, and for the main cake, stick our Twinkle Twinkle Little Star cake topper into it for instant charm. Our Twinkle Twinkle Little Star paper plates, cups, and napkins are darling for setting the table. Include other light blue and light pink tableware, such as cutlery, to keep the boy-girl balance. For the balloon backdrop, we opted for our 20-inch foil star balloons in silver, blue, and pink.
01 – Guess the Baby Food Flavor
One easy baby shower game to get the fun started is the Baby Food Guessing Game. To play, fill a few of our clear plastic condiment cups with different kinds of sweet or savory baby food purees. Put out our mini plastic tasting spoons so guests can sample the mystery baby foods and jot down their guesses. Once everyone has made their estimations, announce what the baby food flavors actually are, and the person who made the most correct guesses is the winner.
02 – Ready to POP!
That’s right! The classic gender reveal balloon is tried, true, and our absolute favorite way to make such a happy announcement. Simply fill our Big Latex Gender Reveal Balloon with the appropriately-colored confetti using the included funnel and inflate with helium or air. You can hang up the balloon with twine or fishing line, or let it float high above the parents-to-be and get the camera ready. Then, have them pop the balloon with a pin to release a shower of pink or blue confetti for a picture-perfect reveal.
Help the future mom and dad celebrate every milestone as they prepare for their little star’s arrival. Our adorable Twinkle Twinkle Little Star themed party supplies can be used for any boy or girl baby shower, or as we demonstrated here, to throw a charming gender reveal party. And our gender reveal accessories, such as the confetti balloon, are ideal for expectant parents who want to stage a photo shoot or reveal video for social media. You can find everything in the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star collection online or at your local party retailer.
