The moment you learn of your baby’s gender is such a precious time. Many couples keep this moment to themselves and their family, but others choose to throw a party! Gender Reveal parties have become very popular; as a way to build anticipation about the gender of their baby and announce the gender in a fun and exciting way. If you are looking to plan a gender reveal party, take a look at some of these creative ideas below!

7 Gender Reveal Party Ideas

1) Balloon Release 

Blow up several pink or blue balloons and place them in a box. Draw on the front of the box or create a sign that says Boy or Girl with a question mark. Gather your guest around as you open up the box and let the pink or blue balloons float into the sky!

2) Center your Gender Reveal Party around a Theme

Go simple with either blue or pink decor, or create a party around specific holiday themes; such as a St. Patrick’s Day Reveal Party with blue and pink shamrocks. There are several websites that have free printables for theme parties – check out two of our favorites: Anders Ruff Custom Designs and The TomKat Studio.
