Finding Out the Sex of the Baby in a Fun Way!
Throw a Gender Reveal Party!
The day comes when you take that pregnancy test, and wait impatiently to see the results. Finally, it says "pregnant"! You're jumping around and screaming you're so happy! Then it hits you, is it a boy or girl?? You're dying to know already, but know it's not until about 20 weeks that you find out(if the baby cooperates.)
We all have those certain family members who pester us about waiting til the baby is born to find out the sex, but in our minds that is crazy! We want to know as soon as possible, right? Well here is where the fun starts, throwing a gender reveal party. Here's what it is. Instead of going into the doctor's office and finding out the sex right then, you don't. You nicely ask them if they can refrain from telling you the sex, but rather write down the gender and put it in an envelope for you. Now, you can take this envelope, which you haven't looked at, to a baker. Ask him to make you a blue or pink cake, depending on what it says in the envelope. Now time to send out the invitations. There are all kinds of different templates to choose from when doing invitations. Of course, for decorations you do half and half. Half pink, half blue, no biggie. You can tell your guests that you want gifts, or you don't, it's completely up to you. You can also do voting. Have your guests put their vote in of which sex they think the baby is, and you can give little prizes if you wish.
This is just a fun way to find out the sex, and what better way than to do it with your friends and family, right? They will appreciate this gesture, they were included and that is a big deal to those you love. Enjoy!
