Food Reveal:

The most common way to announce the “winner” is a cake cutting or cupcake biting, followed down the list by cookie breaking. Take a peak at these delicious ways to communicate:

Balloon Release:

Coming in at a close second is the balloon release. Whether the balloons float up, or fall down, it’s a moment of suspense for everyone.

Pop a Balloon:

Since Mom is about to pop, it’s fitting to use a balloon. You can pop a balloon filled with carefully colored confetti, or pop a balloon filled with paint using darts or even a bow and arrow!

A Silly String Fight:

If your party is out of doors then I say go for it! Most everyone has fun with silly string and I can envision this becoming an epic battle!

Confetti Poppers:

These poppers are a great party favor. Mom and Dad can pop them alone or give everyone a chance to play.

Piñata:

A party classic, the piñata is as versatile as the balloon! Using a pull string it can reveal colored confetti, candy, or mini balloons.

Harry Potter:

I kind of geeked out when I saw this one-of-a-kind reveal! Who can doubt the Sorting Hat with pink baby shoes underneath? The Sorting Hat is always right! This is a clever and unique way to announce what you’re having for Harry Potter fans.

So who said you couldn’t be revealing while pregnant! Now get out there, reveal baby’s gender {If you’re in to that sort of thing} and let us know how you did it. Was it a group effort? Or did the proud parents do the sharing? Were you surprised by the results? I have a love/hate relationship with surprises, but in this game, either way you win! Congrats!

    I never got into the gender reveal thing … in fact, I still wish we could have kept our gender secret, now that I’ve been through it twice. But, these are some really fun ideas!
