Gender reveal parties in Kent have become more and more popular in the last five years or so. The emergence of the gender reveal phenomenon is closely tied to the popularity of social media. It’s all about sharing the special moments of your life with your loved ones. There is nothing as special as finding out that you are having a baby!
Expectant Mums and Dads started sharing their exciting news online and this evolved into sharing ultra sound scan pictures and the sex of the unborn child. Some simple analysis of Google trends shows that prior to 2010, gender reveal parties had a search interest of zero but has been climbing steadily ever since. Here’s how you throw your own gender reveal parties in Kent!
Throwing your own gender reveal parties in Kent
The only limit is your imagination. They are usually held fairly early on in the pregnancy but after the gender has been established at the 20 week scan.
It could be an intimate gathering for close relatives only or it could be a large party for all your friends. You can hold it in your home or hire a hall or other venue which you can decorate to match your theme.
Some lovely ideas for your gender reveal party
Why not give your guests a chance to buy an early gift for your little one? A pop-up shop at your gender reveal party gives your guests a chance to choose a gift from a range of super cute gift ideas. It could be some useful baby items, blankets or toys for girls, boys or gender-neutral!
Themes work very well at gender reveal parties. You could go for the obvious pink and blue theme with decorations, banners and plates in both colours. Another popular variation is the señor or señorita theme and you can use a gender reveal piñata as your centre piece.
The “What will it bee?” theme is gaining popularity. With this theme you provide bee-themed sweets and you can even make a black and yellow table cloth using crepe paper.
For the glamorous Mums and Dads-to-be, there is the moustaches and lipsticks theme! You can have a load of fun with this one! Put some fake moustaches and bright pink lipstick in bowls and your guests can guess the gender by picking one. You can do the same with bows or bowties.
The gender reveal moment!
The highlight of the party! Here’s how you can do it:
- An opaque black balloon filled with either pink or blue confetti. When you pop it, the confetti reveals the gender.
- A handful of blue or pink helium balloons packed into a giant box. When you open the lid, out pop the balloons.
- A piñata filled with blue or pink ribbons and glitter. This one gets the guests involved as they take turns to break it. You can buy one or make one yourself.
- Pass the parcel with a blue or pink baby outfit at the centre.
- A gender reveal cake with a blue or pink centre. A variation of this is cupcakes which reveal the gender with the first bite!
