Over the past few years, gender reveal parties have taken over social media. Only on YouTube, there are over 500 thousand videos of happy couples getting more and more creative gender reveal party ideas whether they are expecting a baby boy or a baby girl. And even though many of us might have rolled their eyes at how extra some of it might seem… we just can’t get over how cute they are? So if you’re like us and are a firm believer that there is no such thing as too much cuteness, here’s seven gender reveal party ideas that are too cute not to share.
1. Pillow Fight Till You Drop!
Finding out whether you’re expecting a baby girl or a baby boy is always an exciting moment. But if you add pillow fighting you can make it epic! Fill pillow covers and cases with pink or blue feathers and dare your guests to fight till the feathers come out flying. The pillow fight gender reveal is definitely one of the most fun ideas, particularly if there’s kids attending!
2. Mother Knows Best
We all have heard our mums telling Wives’ Old Tales about pregnancy: if you’re carrying low, it’s a boy, or if you are craving sweet things, you’re expecting a girl. Whether if they’re accurate or not, this is the kind of wisdom that’s passed on to every expecting couple, so why not make it one of your gender reveal party ideas?
3. Ay Piñata!
Go full on fiesta with your gender reveal party with a piñata! Fun, cute, and the happy couple gets to smash something after waiting months to know the sex of their baby. An added bonus? Gender reveal fiestas mean guacamole, burritos and, wait for it, baby sombreros!
4. Team Up!
You ask your friends and family to take a guess: is the baby going to be a boy or a girl? The guests can show their commitment by wearing the colour that matches their answer, or by picking between cardboard moustaches or bows on sticks that you can make yourself. Just imagine an army of grandpas, uncles and boyfriends arriving to the gender reveal all dressed up in pink, only to find all the women cladded in blue!
5. Good Ol’ Confetti
Listen to me: confetti never disappoints. It’s fun, makes pictures look super cute, and is a classic, so there is no way you can go wrong with confetti. You want to pop a massive balloon that will cover your guests in pink or blue heart-shaped confetti? You can do that here. Or maybe you’re more the confetti push pop type? That’s also doable, and regardless of which one you choose, the outcome is always a big “Aawwww”.
6. The Outfit Reveal
This one is one of our favourites. Not only because it stays far from your usual smoke bombs or confetti-filled gender reveals, but also because who doesn’t go mad at the sight of teeny tiny baby clothes? The parents to be unwrap one baby outfit in front of their guests in order to reveal the gender. Extra cuteness if the parents don’t know themselves and have someone else pick the outfit for them.
7. I Ordered One, They Gave Me Two
Why have we fallen in love with this gender reveal cake with double coloured frosting? Because we can’t help but imagining a bunch of friends and relatives gathered around a table, watching intently as the parents to be slice the cake to reveal the colour inside. Is it a girl? Is it a boy? Neither: it’s twins!!!
