Pre-Party Checklist for Your Gender Reveal Party
Before you start getting all your gender reveal ideas ready, here are a few things you need to do:

Send out invitations.
Create the menu.
- Decide on the décor.
Getting Closer to the Party: Gender Reveal Ideas
As the party gets closer, there are more things to do. One of the most exciting parts of this party is deciding how you’ll do the reveal.
Order any catering, including the cake. One of the most beloved gender reveal ideas is having a cake with either pink or blue inside.
Plan out any games or activities you’ll do at the gender reveal party. You may want to ask that guests guess what you’ll be having by wearing pink or blue to the party.
Plan out the big moment! Choose the product that you want to use, such as a powder cannon, or a confetti-filled balloon, that will reveal the baby’s gender. Consider whether you want something loud and exciting, or something sweeter and more intimate, such as opening a handmade quilt in the right colors. Decide who will be revealing the news, and who will be the one getting surprised.
- Double check that the venue has your date reserved and check in with the caterers the week of the party to ensure they will be there.
Get Ready for the Party!
Now you just have to have a great party!
Arrive early so you can put out any “fires” before the party starts and to get the decorations up.
Consider having a person designated as the “timekeeper” who keeps the party moving so that everything can happen before your time is up.
