How To Organise A Gender Reveal Party

Knowing the gender of your baby is the second most exciting thing to finding out you are pregnant and what better way to share your joy and excitement with friends and families than a gender reveal party. Planning a gender reveal party should not stress you out so we have gathered some tips and creative ideas to make your reveal more memorable and fun. 

Because that's what this party is all about. Schedule an ultrasound at around 20 weeks into your pregnancy to know the gender of your baby. During this time Sonographers might be able to determine if your baby is a girl or boy depending on it's position. If you're not 100% sure that you'll be able to know your baby's gender yet around 20 weeks then you might want to schedule the ultrasound appointment later.

If both you and your partner want to surprise everyone including yourselves on the gender reveal party, you can always ask the Sonographer to place the result in a sealed envelope. You can take the enclosed envelope to either a bakery or balloon shop where the employees open it and either fill a box full of pink/blue balloons or if you do a cake then they will either do blue or pink on the inside.

Once this step is done, you can now start planning on the fun stuff.

Get creative and choose a theme that will get your guests excited the moment they step in to party. Here are some ideas for inspiration:
