Connecting moms in Polk County, Fla.
I love to be social and have gatherings. I'll use almost any excuse to do so. Saying this, it should be no surprise that I absolutely LOVE this idea!
Click into this link for some extra tips and how-twos on throwing a Gender Reveal Party.
But of course, let's chat it here, too. Traditionally, a gender reveal party can be done in two ways.
You and your partner know the sex of your baby-to-be but you don't reveal your little secret until you throw a party for your family and friends finally cluing them in.
Or, a new trend picking up is this; the parents don't know the baby's sex until the party either.
This is how they surprise themselves.
The expectant mother has a procedure that detects the sex of her baby (like an ultrasound or amnio), let the professional issuing the news give the answer in a sealed envelope. Then no peeking for mom and dad!
The expecting couple can then give the answer to a friend to plan the party or even to a baker that bakes a cake or cupcakes that holds pink or blue icing inside. This way the new parents discover the sex alongside the celebrating group.
I would SO do this if I was planning another bundle of joy. How about you? Do you think this sounds like a plan you would like to put in place? Have you ever had or attended a gender reveal gathering?
Love this :)
I remembered this topic when I saw this blog post with the cutest cakes! I still love this idea. I would DEFINITELY do this if I had it to do again. I mean, who doesn't love surprises? Too, I love a reason to get together to have fun. :)
My husband and I are trying to get pregnant now, and we already have a four year old. I don't want to know the gender of our baby once I become pregnant. Everyone says it would be so much easier to plan everything if you know the gender... but just the idea of not knowing and being completely surprised at delivery is exciting to me. However I LOVE the idea of a gender reveal party, where the parents don't know the gender. Love it!
