Today is a big day for Justin and I!
Last month we went into our doctor’s office for our 20 week ultrasound to discover the sex of Baby Pippin
. Unfortunately, Baby Pippin was a bit shy (or stubborn like its Momma) and sat perfectly on its little feet obscuring its nether-region.
|26 Weeks Preggo and still growing!
So, this morning at 11 am we head in again to hopefully find out if Baby Pip is a Princess or a Pirate Captain, just in time for our baby shower next week!
In honor of our big day, I’m collecting and sharing some of my three favorite DIY Gender Reveal ideas available on this wonderful internet we have!
1.) Host a Gender Reveal Party
Gender Reveal parties are so in right now. (Just check out this amazing Countdown Reveal
!) So why not combine a reveal with a baby shower?
These sweet invites are available on Etsy by Petite Party Studio
. I love the pretty pink lips and dapper mustaches!
The Pretty Blog designed this great set of FREE Party Printables fit for a Gender Reveal! You can download everything from invitations to party games here!
Use them at your next party!
2.) Reveal the News in a Photograph
I spend entirely too much time on Pinterest
, so I have stumbled upon some absolutely gorgeous Gender Reveal photographs that would be perfect to share with your family and friends!
Have a trusted third party fill a decorated box with Pink or Blue helium balloons and capture your response after opening the box like this gorgeous photograph by Radiant Photography.
Having maternity shots done? Tie a pink or blue scarf around your bump for a subtle yet timeless reveal photo like this one from Hilton Pittman Photography
Opt for something a little fun with the whole family. Recreate this sweet pink and blue balloon photo by 7x7xMommy
to share with loved ones near and far.
Or try a simpler approach: pose with pink or blue paint samples soon to adorn Baby’s nursery like the couple featured in this Pin
3.) Tell it with a Token
Send your family and friends this gender reveal card. Your loved ones blow up the balloons to reveal a “Yep!” or “Nope!” on each color! You can view the how to on this craft at The Mombot
You can give your friends a sweet treat to share the news, like this Hershey’s bar wrapped to reveal “He” or “She” as featured on Garden Grandmaw
Gender Reveal cakes have been around for a while, but these unique question mark cupcakes featured on Half Baked
are just too cute!
Finally, probably my favorite Gender Reveal token. If you read my blog often, you know I’m a HUGE lover of OPI Nail Lacquer. So, when I saw this adorable favor online I just about died.
Attach these sweet tags from MitzsCreations on Etsy
to a pink or blue bottle of Nail Polish to share with all the women in your life. This beautiful pink color by OPI is appropriately called “It’s a Girl” 🙂
So there you have it, three easy DIY Gender Reveal ideas to share with all the people you love! Have your own Gender Reveal ideas to share? Tell me in the comments! I’d love to hear all about it!
What did Justin and I decide to do do when we find out what Baby Pippin is? We’re skyping and calling almost everyone we know. Nothing works quite like that 🙂
Thanks for looking!
