Reveal the gender by smashing a piñata! Buy and fill the piñata with pink or blue candies to reveal the gender to you and your guests. Best part? Everyone gets to feel like a kid again (and get candy in the end!).

Give each guest a (covered) can of silly string with the gender color inside. On the count of three, everyone sprays their can to reveal the gender of the baby on the way! The cleanup can be a mess, but it’s worth the smiles from your guests.

Have a close family member bake a cake with pink or blue food dye. Make sure it’s covered in a neutral frosting! You and your significant other can cut the cake to reveal the gender. Take it up a notch and display the cake on our Vintage Baby Scale. Whether it’s how you want to reveal the gender or not, cake should always be on your gender reveal planning checklist.

Have guests drink their cocktail out of a colored goblet signifying the gender they think you are having! And serve desserts that are pink or blue! Create a mixed display of blush and blue glassware and cake stands to tie it all together.
