Gold and White Gender Reveal Party

gold-and-white-gender-reveal-party

 This gold and white gender reveal party was styled by Sofia Ulloa. The party was bursting with elegant gold and had a rustic touch.

The dessert table featured an extra special cake that indicated the gender of the baby when it was cut. The cake was elegantly frosted white and when cut revealed bright blue cake on the inside. The top of the cake featured an adorable sign made from fabric pieces and twine reading “boy or girl.” A large container in the shape of a bottle also held delicious looking cookies. The guests also got to take home a sweet treat of a full size Hershey’s bar. There were also specially wrapped prizes filled with treats. 

A sign reading “oh baby” with a simple gold hoop decorated with flowers was the perfect decoration to add to the rustic decor.

THE PARTY THEME: White and Gold with a Touch of Rustic

We wanted a gender neutral color palette because as it was gender reveal, we didn’t want to give anything away! We figured that white and gold was the best way to go.

THE GUEST ATTIRE:

We had the guests wear pink if their guess was that the baby is a girl and blue if it was a boy. The pinks and blue we believed would go perfectly with the neutral decor colour palette.

HOW WE STYLED THE DINNER PARTY:

What’s amazing here is that since almost everything was DIY except for the rented props (even the cake was homemade), we spent so little on the decor so we were able to splurge on the food and giveaways.

We decided to style a photo backdrop and a simple tablescape/dessert table with the cake as the focal point. Everything was set up in less than 30 minutes and it turned out better than we imagined.

TIPS:

1- DIAPER RAFFLE

This is something people have been doing for so long but a diaper raffle is really an awesome idea. Not only do the guests have something to look forward to (other than the baby’s gender) but you get to stock up on diapers as early as possible.

Our version of the diaper raffle was that if the guest brings a pack of diapers, they get a pink or blue raffle entry depending on their guess. If they think it’s a girl + they have a pack of diapers, they get to write their name on a pink slip of paper and vice versa.

2 – GENDER REVEAL CAKE

The star of the dinner party was a white piña colada cheesecake. At the end of the dinner, we would slice the cake to find out the baby’s gender. 

This ties together with the diaper raffle because if the cake turned out to be blue, then we will choose from the blue slips and the name we pick is the raffle winner.

3 – PRIZES

We thought of mixing together a bunch of the mama’s preggo cravings and giving those out as prizes. 

4 – GAMES

 We had three games: Pop the Baby, Guess the Belly Size, and Guess the Number of Cookies in the Baby Bottle

DIYS:
• the floral hula hoop “Oh Baby” decor
• Hershey’s Bar giveaways (the HE/SHE in the packaging colored in gold)
• “I think it’s a boy”, “I think it’s a girl” photo props
