Are you planning a gender reveal party for a couple of friends and you don’t know where to start? Here are some tips and tricks to make the party planning easy and enjoyable.
1. Choose a theme
choosing a theme will make it easier when you plan the party because you will be able to lessen the scope of your choices. When you have a theme, your choices are limited and it does not get very confusing. Themes can be as simple as the color pink or blue, or perhaps your theme can have something to do with the season or something as unique as the couple’s favorite children’s book. There are many Gender Reveal Party Themes to choose from, you just need to be creative and bear in mind what the couple will like.
2. Get people to help you
while there is nothing wrong with having control over the decisions regarding aspects of the party, it would still be smart to get people to help you. Once you make the guest list, see if there is anyone who you can tap to help you with decorating, or perhaps baking the cake for the gender reveal, or even just to design the invitation. You do not need to do everything yourself. There are always friends and family who are willing to lend a helping hand if you just ask them.
3. Choose activities that everyone can enjoy
aside from the big gender reveal, why not arrange for games and activities to be done so that everyone gets to enjoy the party? Something as simple as pin the tail on the donkey, or a pinata can be something that all party guests can enjoy.
4. Find a unique way to reveal the baby’s gender
the highlight of a gender reveal party is, of course, the gender reveal itself. There are so many ways to do this, and you can be as creative as you can. Of course, you can choose to do the simple route. Many would often do their gender reveal by cutting a cake, which would then reveal blue or pink to indicate whether it’s going to be a boy or girl. Others would do the reveal through balloons. There are others that are completely different and quirky, such as arranging a shooting game for the parents to be until it shows the correct color. Make it something that everyone at the party will remember for a long time.
5. Choose suppliers that you trust
the key to having a smooth event is having party suppliers that are reliable and efficient, especially if the party will have a lot of guests. You don’t want to be stressed on the day to find out that the cake is not ready or that the food is not enough. Whether you are getting professionals that you hired or getting friends to help, make sure that they are reliable and will deliver their task on time.
6. Capture the moments of the party
don’t forget to make sure that there will be documentation of the said event. You don’t have to hire a professional photographer, but maybe get one of the guests to take photos so that there will be mementos of the important party.
