We recently threw a Gender Reveal party for three of our preggonistas here at Destination Maternity. We went with traditional pink and blue, but also added a pop of yellow in honor of Alicia, who is choosing to keep the gender of her baby a surprise. I love the addition of the black balloons and chocolate cupcakes, since they add a more modern look.
As it turns out, Jill is expecting a boy and Kristen is expecting a girl! Our fourth featured mama, Rebecca, already knew prior to the party that she is having a baby girl! As you can see, the ladies popped a balloon to reveal the gender, while the party guests noshed on creamy cupcakes and other sweet treats. Keep following their journeys and style diaries on the We’re Expecting Too page! For now, here are a couple things our first time mamas in the making had to say about pregnancy and starting a family.
This whole process thus far has been amazing, yet overwhelming at the same time. So many things are changing … but it is all to prepare for our little one. I’m most excited to continue family traditions that my husband and I have been raised with. Coming from big families, these mean so much to us. Also, I’m looking forward to establishing our own traditions as a new little family of three. Plus an added bonus… the clothes are so cute, so I can’t wait to dress him each day! – Jill
In addition to looking forward to the overall joy children can bring to your life, I’m really excited to find out if I’m having a boy or girl! – Alicia
Alicia, so are we! Congratulations to all our mamas-to-be. –Olivia

Sick of the same old gender reveal party ideas? You’re in luck! Miss Party Mom has some clever and crafty ways to spruce up the big reveal.
Share the fun!
Provide a fun game for guests to partake in. Let your friends and family come up with name suggestions for a boy or a girl and place their votes into a jar. This can also serve as a great keepsake item to display in the baby’s nursery.
Cast Your Vote!
Allow guests to vote on the baby’s gender, and then tally it up! Pick a fun prize to award the winning team.
The Big Reveal!
We absolutely love this idea: Have your party store put confetti into a matte, dark colored balloon. When it comes time to reveal, simply pop!
