Gender reveal parties can make that moment even more special by getting friends and family in on the surprise in a festive setting.
There are no rules when it comes to gender reveals, so you can feel free to play around with different ways to announce the news, as well as different party games and themes. If you’re a sports fan, you can dunk, kick, or throw a ball filled with pink or blue powder to declare your baby’s sex. If you’re a Potterhead, let the infamous Sorting Hat make the big reveal. Or, if you’re not into the whole pink and blue color motif, consider a black and yellow “What Will It Bee?” theme. Even if you’re not up for throwing a party, you can still share the big news with friends and family in a fun, creative way by planning a gender reveal photoshoot.
Make your gender reveal party a little sweeter with a delicious, candy-filled cake! When you cut into the cake, blue or pink M&Ms will spill out to artfully reveal whether you’re having a boy or a girl.
If you’re looking for a moment in your pregnancy when you can replicate that Christmas-morning anticipation of opening up a box and being super-excited about what’s inside, these gender reveal ideas might be just the thing. But how to announce the sex of your baby to the world?
If there’s one huge trend in the gender–reveal world, it’s Holi powder, or vibrantly colored powder that was once mostly used in Hindu celebrations (but you can now find at your local Color Run). You can shoot it out of a cannon, pack it in a baseball and hit a grand slam, or even stick it under your tires and watch the plume when your car spins out. If colored powder isn’t your thing, there are also sweet treats, balloon crafts, and silly string fights among these unique gender–reveal ideas.

In the video that she posted on her website, the former model is shown with her 4-year old son Brooks Alan and 19-month old daughter opening up a box filled with balloons that are either pink or blue.
