Surprise! It’s a….Gender Reveal Party You’ll Love!

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.gr5GR3DM-GenderReveal_025gr7DM-GenderReveal_041gr8DM-GenderReveal_051DM-GenderReveal_058gr6DM-GenderReveal_055As 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

Oh boy!! … Or Girl!!

Gender Reveal Parties are a sweet and special way to celebrate the arrival of your new little one to your friends and family.  Are you looking for some cute ideas?  How about a Gender Reveal extravaganza?!  Are you planning your own celebration?  Here’s what’s hot:

How about a “Waddle it Be” Party?  You can have duck shaped cookies, banners, ask your guests to vote and more!Balloons:

Balloons-in-a-box is another fun way to find out the sex of your baby!  You can have your doctor write down the gender and bring it to your local grocery store or Party shop and ask them to put either pink or blue balloons in a box.  Then, you can open the box in front of your friends and family to find out together!Teams:

On your invitations ask everyone to wear pink or blue, or provide gender specific accessories like these team pink or team blue pins.  This is a fun way to get everyone as into it as you are!Food

Food is a great way for you to make your gender reveal party extra festive.  Try these blue and pink chocolate covered strawberries.  Have your doctor write down the gender and bring the envelope to your local bakery; have them seal up a box of these and then you can open them up in front of your guests!Since you’re not sure if you’re having a baby boy or girl, why not wear a dress that represents both?  You can try this strapless high-low hem maternity dress that is both blue and pink or this spaghetti strap cross back maternity dress, which comes in both blue AND pink.dressesWhatever you decide to do and wear, gender reveal parties are such a fun way to celebrate your little guy or girl coming into the world!
