Expecting a little one is such an exciting time that is made all the more thrilling with the announcement of the baby's gender. Will you keep it a secret and be surprised along with everyone else? Or find out and surprise your friends and family? This Wheels or Heels gender reveal party theme is perfect for race fans, monster truck lovers, motocross junkies, and plain and simple “gear heads”! This isn't just a theme for daddy, there are lots of female car and truck fans too! I love when a gender reveal theme can express an interest of mom or dad.

For your Guests
Diaper raffles are a great idea. Each guest bringing a pack of diapers receives a raffle ticket for a special prize! Girl or boy, they ALL need diapers! Wheels or Heels diaper raffle tickets also by Magical Invitations on Etsy.
You can have guests “wear their guess” by donning pink or blue, or hand out buttons upon arrival to sport their vote. These monster truck and heels buttons by Distinct Designs Unltd on Etsy are the perfect pick!
The Big Announcement
With so many ways to make the big announcement, how will you do the big reveal?
Cutting into a specially made cake is a fun surprise for parents. Will the inside be pink or blue? Using this cut glitter cake topper from Sunshine Glitter Store on Etsy makes the perfect statement.
Scratch cards are another fun way to get your whole guest list involved in the reveal. Scratch it off all at once to show what baby will be! 4-wheeler Wheels or Heels scratch cards from Ms Memories 101 on Etsy. Also available in Monster Truck, Race car, and Motorcycle styles.
More of a cupcake person? These cute “Team Heels” and “Team Wheels” cupcake toppers from Creative Crate by A on Etsy can take store bought cupcake from drab to fab! Cupcakes can also be specially made to reveal a custom colored center!

These Monster truck cookies by Baked on Briar are fabulous! Want to try your hand at baking your own specialty cookies? You can find great fondant cutters for a Monster truck, race car and high heel at Three D Geek on Etsy. Or a 3D implression Classic sports race car cutter at Bakerology.
Wheels or Heels Decor
This wheels or heels gender reveal party banner, by Ichabods Imagination on Etsy, is the PERFECT backdrop to the cake table!
How about spray painting a toy monster truck and a second hand pair of heels to create a fabulous centerpiece like this one from Decor by Heidy?
And while you're spraying you might as well get your glass bottles to dress up your beverage table like this one by Glitter Box.
A tire track table runner or backdrop is another great idea. Tire track gift wrap and backdrop fabric available in our Spoonflower shop HalfpintPartyDesign. Image from my son's Monster Truck birthday party.
What about this darling cart set up by Angie's Dream Decorations? Love that the large cart wheels are such a focus for a sophisticated wheels or heels gender reveal party display. Cart available from MiVintage. AND they used my favorite banner!
How about this alternative color scheme of green and magenta & purple by Ihsaan Entertainment? This is a perfect scheme for all you tractor lovers out there! How do you feel about breaking the blue and pink tradition?
Party Fashion for Mom
Don't forget about yourself! Mom-to-be needs something fun to wear to the gender reveal. How about this maternity week by week countdown shirt by Hashtag Twin Clothing!?
And you can't have a wheels or heels gender reveal party without a great pair of heels! But be careful as your tummy grows, heels can throw you off balance and hurt your back and hips. These high heeled wedges from Amazon are still sexy but much safer! They're easy on the eyes and the pocket book!
