Is it a boy or a girl?

One of the most exciting things about pregnancy is anticipating the gender of your new baby! And these days, the question is answered not by simply saying it but through gender parties and other creative gender reveal ideas.

What is a gender reveal party?

Gender reveal parties are one of the most popular trends among pregnant couples. In contrast to baby showers, which celebrates the expected birth of a new baby, a gender reveal party anticipates the baby’s gender.

It is also typically done near the end of the second trimester, around the seventh or eighth month, when the gender is already detectable in the sonogram. It is also during this time that the risk of miscarriage has significantly decreased.

While guests of gender reveal parties are typically not expected to bring gifts, it is still a thoughtful idea to get the couple some gender-neutral gifts for the baby.

There is no one specific way to celebrate the gender of your baby. But if you haven’t decided yet, here are nine creative ideas for your gender reveal that you can easily pull off.

9 Creative Gender Reveal Ideas

1.   Balloons

Balloons are a fun way to announce the gender of your baby. You can go for traditional blue or pink balloons, which will do the job. Or you may also go for neutral-colored balloons – even black – to create more suspense and a more classic look.

3.   Sweet and Charming

A sweet and charming baby gender reveal theme is easy to pull off with the help of a good color scheme. To complement the traditional pastel blues and pinks, you can add other classic colors like clean white and modern gray. Then again, you can forego blue and pink and go completely neutral!

4.   Confetti and Silly Strings

The pop of either colorful confetti or cans of silly strings makes a gender reveal party even more exhilarating. They heighten the level of excitement, especially if the couple is unaware of the gender, too. Plus, they look great in photos!

5.   Smoke

A good – and trash-free – alternative to using confetti and silly strings is using smoke. It gives the gender reveal announcement a whimsical and a more romantic atmosphere. Smoke also typically lasts longer than confetti and silly strings, staying in the air for a minute or so.

6.   Reveal Box

A reveal box is a trendy centerpiece to many gender reveal parties. Basically, it is a big box that contains elements that announce the baby’s gender. These elements can be balloons, words, and even baby essentials like clothing. The couple usually opens this box near the end of the party.

7.   Cake

Is there a tastier way to announce the gender of your child? A gender reveal cake is a cake that, when opened, reveals a dominant color: blue for boys and pink for girls. You can go for the classic blue vs. pink icing, or you may also go the unique route and opt for an all-white icing.
