Congratulations! Now that you've got a baby on the way, you and your partner may be looking for a fun and memorable way to reveal the gender of your child to friends and family.

A gender reveal party is one of the best ways to do this – you can even ask a loved one to keep the secret from you so that you'll be surprised at the party as well. These suggestions can help you plan an enjoyable gender reveal celebration that will be a beautiful memory for you and your family.

Choose Your Theme

Remember that you only want to reveal the gender at a specific time in the party, so be sure your party theme is gender neutral in terms of color. Or, you can decorate with both blue and pink so that you won't give the gender way during the celebration.

A black and white party is chic and elegant, or you can choose a theme like a safari or carnival. You can also choose a celebration theme that expresses your interests, such as music or sports, since these interests are often passed on to your child.

Create Interesting Invitations

When you send your invitations and save the date cards, ask your guests to guess whether your child will be a girl or a boy before the event. You can even create scratch-off invitations so loved ones can cast their votes, bring the invite with them to verify their guess, and win a prize if they are correct.

Celebration-Specific Accents

Of course, you'll also want to reveal the gender of the baby in a unique way. If you're having the party outdoors, you can purchase confetti cannons that shoot blue or pink confetti to level everyone know your baby's gender. You can also select a giant black balloon that you pop to reveal pink and silver or blue and silver confetti during the party for the big surprise. Gender reveal smoke is another interactive way to let your loved ones know whether you're having a girl or a boy. Smoke cannons are designed to be used outside and deliver a beautifully intense puff of blue or pink smoke that is sure to be the highlight of the party.

If you're a sports fan, you can also purchase baseballs or soccer balls designed for gender reveal parties. When you kick the ball, hit it with a bat or throw it against the wall, blue or pink smoke comes out.

If you'd prefer to keep the celebration indoors, sparklers can make the gender reveal party complete. The sparklers can serve as candles for the cake and display pink or blue sparkles when you light them.

These celebration elements, as well as decorations, speeches or slide shows that you may want to include in the event help to make the gender reveal party one that you, your partner and those close to you will remember fondly for years to come. Ensuring that the party is one of a kind will also make you more excited to share photos and video footage of the party with your little one when he or she is older.
