Gender Reveal Baby Shower Invitations & Ideas

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Boy or girl, which will it be?  Join us at the shower for the reveal and you will see!

Personally I think this is one of the coolest baby shower and pregnancy ideas out there – the gender revealing baby shower!  This means both the mom and dad-to-be keep the gender of their baby a secret until their baby shower.  When they go to the ultrasound to determine the sex of their baby, the parents-to-be ask the doctor not to reveal the sex of the baby, but instead to put it inside a sealed envelope, that they in-turn give to their baby shower host.

The sex of the baby is kept a secret until the baby shower, when it is revealed to all guests, including the parents-to-be.  The most popular way of revealing the baby’s gender is by using cake icing, like this adorable cupcake which features a white question mark made in frosting and has blue filling on the inside, signifying that the parents-to-be are going to be having a baby boy.  I have also seen this done with frosting layers inside the cake – just make sure that there’s no inside filling peeking out on the cake platter!  Another idea is to keep it a secret until the shower, and when the guests walk in, they will be greeted by traditional pink or blue decorations, indicating whether or not the baby is a boy or a girl.

Want to see how it’s been done before, (grab a tissue, ladies)?  Check out this amazing video from Pinterest and Youtube, which shows two delighted parents-to-be finding out the gender of their twins:  Twins Gender Reveal Shower
