Fun Ways to Reveal Your Baby’s Gender

You’ve waited so long to find out…is it a boy or a girl? Many parents decide to wait until the baby is born to find out, but for those who like to know in advance, how did you reveal your baby’s gender with friends and family? How did you let your older child know if they’d be having a baby brother or a baby sister? Here are a few fun ways to reveal your baby’s gender.

A friend of mine recently sent this sequence of pictures to friends and family to share the news of her second child’s gender. Her daughter got to discover the surprise as well. Boy, oh boy!

Another Project Nursery reader shared her gender reveal story. They brought two loveys to the ultrasound room, a pink one and a blue one, along with a big envelope. They asked the technician to put whichever color symbolized the baby’s gender in the envelope so they could have their older daughter open it up on Christmas morning. Under the Christmas tree, their two-year-old daughter discovered a pink lovey, which meant she’d be having a baby sister. What a great gift!

Gender Reveal Parties are very popular right now. As we’ve seen in our own Project Gallery, couples are coming up with all sorts of cute ways to tell the world if it’s a boy or a girl. Take, for instance, this Vintage-Inspired Gender Reveal Party, where guests were asked upon entry to either place a yellow bow in their hair if they suspected a girl or put a fake mustache on if they felt boy vibes. The invitation used a clever play on words with “Bow or Beaux,” tying the theme together perfectly.

In celebrity gossip, US Weekly recently reported that Guiliana and Bill Rancic hosted their own Gender Reveal Party, and on Father’s Day, they decided to share their secret with the rest of us. When guests entered, they were asked to pick a necklace that had a boy or girl pin on it. Later in the party, a huge box with their initials on it was opened, and a bunch of blue balloons came flying out. We are so happy for Guiliana and Bill!

My husband and I like to find out at the appointment then for baby 1, I filled cupcakes with blue frosting and we had our families over to bite into them at the same time. For baby2, We filled a pinata with pink candy and our guests had to try to knock it open.

It's no fun to just blurt it out, Tasha. We had a gender reveal party for my youngest, only that in my case, I also did not know whether I was having a boy or a girl. It was only my best friend who knew and she was the one who made the party happen. She baked a cake and placed a test tube like container inside it, and we had to eat the cake before we could know. I tell you it was the fastest way to have everyone eat cake :)

Whatever happened to just standing in the center and saying it?

I think that the Wear-Your-Guess idea is nice. Was this also the same party where they raffled off prizes to those who guessed correctly?
