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!

Is it a Boy or a Girl?

Gender Reveal

Gender reveal parties are quickly becoming an adored tradition during pregnancy. From cakes and balloons to confetti and piñatas, these festive occasions are uniquely personalized to each couple and are a creative and fun way to announce your baby’s gender. And although treats and confections have become the norm in revealing if it’s a boy or a girl, we have a few apparel options that we think are just as great!
