While a baby shower is a special occasion on its own, a gender reveal baby shower can be extra memorable. There are many ways to reveal a baby’s gender to the guests, whether you choose to do so right when guests arrive with the party itself, or if you opt for something like a balloon box or a cake cutting.

Colored balloons and streamers in blues and pinks with gold or silver would be your basic decoration for this fun theme! Depending on how you are revealing the baby’s gender, you may want to check out this large balloon labeled ‘How I Wonder What You Are?”!
Some other decorations you can use to reveal are filling a box with pink or blue balloons to open and let float out for guests to see, or you can even fill balloons with pink or blue glitter stars to pop for a reveal. You can also incorporate a piñata as an activity and fill it with gender specific colored/labeled candies!
A large backdrop with congratulations to the parents-to-be along with color blocks dedicated to the message that says “Is it a Boy or a Girl!” is a fun way to keep the suspense. Incorporating sweet, dim lighting with glowing stars in white and in gender specific colors is also a cute idea, as the whole core of the theme is “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”.
