Most couples reveal the gender of their to-be born baby with a simple call to their family, but other couples are using the excellent news as an excuse to throw a really awesome party! Once you find out you’re pregnant you must start to get a little curious about whether your little one is going to be a boy or a girl. Whether you’re looking to host a gender guessing game or a gender reveal party, we’ve rounded up ten of our favorite ideas including DIY confetti poppers, sweet treats and lots of balloons! So invite your family and friends over for a surprise party and get them to share in your exciting news!

And in case you didn’t know… we LOVE helping out with gender reveals so drop us an email to see how we can help! We can even work it all out with your OB and surprise you!

(3) Some couples prefer to do a fun photo shoot rather than throw an actual party. One of our favorite ideas is the drop of the ice cream! Pose with the correct flavor and frame it for your baby to see!

(7) Gather your friends and family for a fun-tastic gender reveal! Surprise yourselves and everyone around you by asking one person to fill the water guns with colored paint. Once the spraying is done, take a look at the color you’re covered in and voila!

(8) Here’s another exciting way to reveal the gender of your baby: colored powder. Offer everyone a small cup of the powder and throw it as high as you can for a very memorable photo op! Our tip? Do it in a place that can get dirty!

(9) Bake a delicious (ombre) cake and coat it with a neutral colored frosting. At the end of the party, cut a slice and discover whether you’re having a girl or a boy!
