Creating a gender reveal party post has been on the top of our “to do” list for ages. Since we still have not gotten around to creating our own, we thought we would at least share some ideas from one of our “go to” party suppliers, Windy City Novelties. And as usual, we could not help ourselves and ended up editing their copy and even throwing in a few (ok, more than a few) ideas of our own.
What are Gender Reveal Parties?
Gender reveal parties have become quite popular over the past few years. Oftentimes, gender reveal parties are held in the place of a baby shower, and both men and women are invited to the event. However, there are couples that will hold both a gender reveal party and a baby shower. At the gender reveal party, the guests, and sometimes the parents themselves, will find out the sex of their unborn child. The purpose of the party is to share the news and celebrate with close friends and family.
The inspiration for this party came from Pam who contacted us searching for gender neutral woodland animals party plates, napkins & cups. She originally visited our post on Fox Theme Party Planning, Ideas, Decor & Supplies and although there are lots and lots of cute ideas, it does not feature exactly what she is looking for. So our team here at PIP cranked into high gear and began searching specifically for party supplies & ideas that could work at a gender neutral woodland animals theme baby shower.
Some of the products we came up with will need to be modified, slightly. For example, we found cute paper goods that work except the napkins say “Happy Birthday”. No big deal >> simply substitute a coordinating solid color. Similarly, we found some adorable plates and napkins but no corresponding cups. This too is an easy enough fix –remember everything does not have to match exactly and if you really want the same pattern on everything, you can always add a matching sticker. Continue Reading →
We fell in love with this puppy kisses invitation and challenged ourselves to find party supplies that would compliment it. We decided to stick with green as the accent color which can work for both baby boy and baby girl showers.
