Get some friends or family members on board and have everyone participate in a series of games to boost the spirit and guess the gender before the big reveal! It will be fun to see everyone’s guesses and what they think it will be. One of our favorite games is the Old Wives Tale to help determine the baby-to-be’s gender!
Have each guest bring a baby picture of themselves and put them up on the wall. Have everyone guess who is who. You'll be surprised at how entertaining this game can become.
Another fun way to see what everyone thinks the baby will be is placing a chalkboard at the entrance of your party and have them write in their name under Boy or Girl to see what they think it will be. One of our favorite games is putting on your invite, wear pink or blue to get everyone in with the color scheme of your party, along with seeing what they think!
