Pink and Blue Gender Reveal Treats

Pink and Blue Chocolate Waffles Recipe

New babies are SO much fun to celebrate! Back in the day, a new Mum and Dad would announce the news to family and friends, host a baby shower to celebrate, then eagerly wait until the big day when their little bundle arrived. These days, there’s typically another celebration thrown into the mix: gender reveal parties!

Gender reveal parties can be just as exciting as the initial pregnancy announcement! Somehow it makes the newest addition to the family seem that much more real, that much closer to arriving. And it’s so much fun to let yourself go overboard with all of the pastel pinks and baby blues afterward!

So what do you serve for food and drinks at a gender reveal party? Since they are a relatively new concept, proper etiquette hasn’t been established quite yet – which you can use to your advantage! It’s really up to you whether you serve a full meal, appetizers, or just snacks. But don’t forget the one thing you need for any party: dessert!
