One of the most exciting parts of any pregnancy is finding out the gender of your baby, and most of the time you find out from the doctor while sitting in a hospital room. However, recently couples have been doing something much more exciting, and that’s having a gender reveal party. A gender reveal party, for those who don’t know, is when you invite all of your friends and family over to your house for a party to find out the gender of your baby at the same time that you do. It can be a fun way to bring your friends and family into the excitement of your new addition, and that’s why it has been growing in popularity so quickly. However, there is one part that is tricky to figure out, and that’s how to reveal the gender to the crowd.
When you’re at the doctor’s office, he can simply walk in with the results and tell you your baby’s gender. Right after you have your ultrasound and they have the results printed out, they can see the gender printed on the piece of paper as clear as day. But at a gender reveal party, you need to make it more of an event than that, and it can be tough to come up with something fun. Here are a few fun ways to reveal the gender of your baby at your party.
One delicious way to reveal the gender of your baby is to buy donuts filled with either blueberry jelly (blue for boy) or raspberry jelly (red/pink for girl). This is a popular option because nobody will know what the baby is going to be until they bite into their donut to reveal the hidden jelly inside. Just make sur you store the donuts somewhere out of the reach of your guests until it’s time for the big reveal so somebody doesn’t grab one and accidentally figure it our prematurely.
Sparklers are another popular way to reveal the gender of a baby, and it works in a similar way to the jelly donuts. Regardless of which color your sparkler burn, they look identical when they are not lit. That means you can have a jar filled with either red or blue sparklers and there would be no way to know which color they are until you lit one up. There are even companies that sell sparklers for gender reveal parties so you can be surprised along with your party guests. Just have your hospital send them the results of the ultrasound and they will send the appropriate color so you don’t know the gender until the sparklers are lit.
There are plenty of fun ways to reveal the gender of your baby at your party, and hopefully these two ideas will get you thinking of how you want to do it. The universal color for boys is blue and pink for girls, but you can choose any colors you want or something other than colors if you so desire. Planning a gender reveal party is a lot of fun, and if you do it right it will be something that you remember for the rest of your lives.
