1. Make a Confetti Pinata

These are so fun and if we had a good tree to hang a pinata from I might have made something just like this! I love how this one just sparkles and screams girl!

2. Make a Balloon Drop

This is a fun idea that I know siblings would LOVE! Also, really easy to DIY. Just decorate a box, gather strings, confetti, and balloons and hang it up.

3. Use Silly String

This is a great idea if you want to get all your family and friends involved! If everyone is wearing blue or pink, have them divide by their gender guesses and then give everyone a can of silly string. At the count of 3 everyone can start spraying each other to find out the gender. Such a fun idea!!

Just remember to wrap the cans before your guests come.

Grab pink silly string here and blue here.

4. Gender Reveal with a Cake

Who doesn’t love yummy desserts? For baby #1 we had gender reveal cookies and what everyone thought was a gender reveal cake. Unbeknownst to our guests, the cake just had white frosting inside. See how decided to actually reveal the gender here!

These desserts are too cute though!!

5. Reveal with Cupcakes

6. Use Balloons

There are so many different ways you can use balloons for a fun gender reveal. Fill black balloons with confetti. Fill black balloons with paint. Fill a box with blue or pink balloons.

These 36″ black balloons would be perfect. Take note that if you buy these large balloons and take them to a party store to have them blown up, it will cost you an arm and a leg. These large latex balloons take A LOT of helium to fill them up. However, if you take them to Rite Aid or a local grocery store that has a helium tank, they’ll usually fill them up for around $2.

This boho-inspired gender reveal party with black balloons filled with confetti is too cute!! I love all the little details of this party.

7. Balloons & Darts

Or you can give a dart to all your guests and throw them at balloons filled with paint. We loved finding out this way with baby #2! Find all the details on how to do your own balloons and dart reveal here.


8. Have a Paint Fight

I’m all about making memories and we had SO much fun having a paint fight to find out the gender of our first baby. You can see all the details on our gender reveal paint fight here.

9. Use Holi Powder

Using holi powder though is also a super cute way of doing it and maybe not quite as messy as paint! Grab pink and blue holi powder here.
