Whether it’s your first child or your fourth, that moment you finally learn whether you’re having a boy or a girl is exciting.

Some parents come up with a fun theme for their reveal party, such as pregnancy cravings (think pickles, ice cream, and potato chips) or ducks (hang up a “waddle it be” banner).
You can also let holidays guide the theme.
Create a Theme. Go simple with pink and blue cocktails, candles, plates, cups, napkins — you name it. (I even put pink and blue guest towels in the bathroom!) In lieu of the Super Bowl, have a Baby Gender Reveal Bowl. If you’re having a dual baby shower/gender reveal party, consider a “What will it bee?” theme with bumblebees as part of your party decor (think wall hangings, centerpiece, napkins, and favors).
Set the date and invite guests. Send your invitations out at least six weeks ahead of time, so you can get your gender-determining ultrasound and plan your big reveal. If you’d like to nail down those details first, send your invites out at least two weeks ahead. For beautiful invitations that you can order or print out at home. Some guests may not have heard of a gender reveal party, so be sure to include a brief explanation.
