Gender Reveal Party Invitations

By michellehorton |

baby shower ideas Remember how we told you about gender reveal parties? When parents-to-be hold parties around the 20-week mark to announce the gender of their child?

Typically a gender reveal party is held in addition to a baby shower — just to get some friends together and celebrate the baby’s gender — yet some people have attacked the idea, calling it a little too self-congratulatory. Any reason to celebrate, they said. Looking for more gifts, they accused.

So why not have a Gender Reveal Baby Shower, using the same party ideas as we showed you before? Of course you’ll have to wait a little longer (usually in the third trimester) and you’ll most likely acquire gender-neutral gifts, but it’s a fun party theme.

Whether you decide to do a separate Gender Reveal party or incorporate it into your baby shower, here are some perfect party invitations:

    We actually used the last one (with the Bee!) for our gender reveal party! My wife’s birthday was just after our 20 week scan, so we incorporated the reveal with her birthday party. Our theme was “L’s Bee-day / What will Baby Bee?” and everything was black and yellow. So much fun!

    This generation is out of control. Every event is turned into a reality TV show moment. Special moments and life’s milestones get diluted down with these constant excuses to have a party, get presents, attention, etc. Next it will be a “first poopy diaper” party. It gets tiring; your family and friends will get burned out before you know it. Really, does everyone want to come over to your house to hear about your pregnancy food cravings, play silly games, twitter about your intestinal gas and eat bad cake full of food coloring?

    Back in the day, people had parties like ice cream socials, tea parties, grange parties, meet ur neighbor …..these were a status show……so I think, if people want to share the moment they learn what the sex of their baby is with the love of family and friends around them, then so be it. It’s a great way to share in the moment.

    Its obvious that Annie May does not have a fun family to celebrate these special events or out of the ordinary occasions with. My family has a pickle eating contest in August that is different and it is really fun, and guess what I’m having a gender party too. We are surprising our family with the exciting news of our baby boy arrival. Its all about bringing the family together and that makes a strong one. So what if a family is having a “a first poopie diaper party”. Atleast they know not to invite Annie May because she can’t have fun.
