Hey bees! We just had our anatomy scan yesterday and we are finding out the gender via a cake-cutting this Sunday with a bunch of close family and friends. Our party is kind of a “Team Blue or Team Pink” Theme and the cake is a football field with the “end zones” saying Team Blue and Team Pink and the middle of the field will say, Which One Are You?
Anyways, it is a mid-afternoon party, so we aren’t going to serve actual lunch or dinner, just some snacky things. Does anyone have any good ideas for snacks? I am not feeling the least bit creative this week and can’t seem to think of anything that would be really yummy and that people would want to eat. Maybe I should stick to “football” season snack foods? (Little smokies, chips and hamburger/cheese dip, etc.) or does anyone have any ideas of cute boy/girl snacks? I also want to do a pink drink and a blue drink with the option of adding a flavored vodka to it, but don’t know what to do for the drinks yet.
Also, have you had your own gender reveal party and/or been to one that had some really cool activities before the reveal? I plan on making 2 poster boards with Team Pink and Team Blue and people can grab a pink or a blue star and write their name on it for which one they think it will be before the reveal. Also, I will probably post the “Old Wives Tales” symptoms I’ve been having. Any other cute ideas?

@cowgirlace: I know it’s not Super Bowl season but since you’re doing a football themed cake serve Super Bowl or football party snacks.

Love the idea! I think doing football type snacks would be great. Cocktail weiners, wings, buffalo chicken dip, potato skins, and things like that. I know there are sites with different football snacks!

Love the football themed snack ideas! Also, what about Blue and Pink gatorade (mini bottles) for drinks? Fits with the football them and could be tastey with vodka, and very tasty without. An easy idea if you don’t want to work/think hard to come up with your own drinks.

@edgebee: I second the pinterest search. I just did it by typing “football gender reveal” and so many cute ideas for decorating popped up.
@MadTownGirl: I like the idea about the gatorades.
You can also do two pink and blue punch bowls and use clear cups. (Or just use colored cups) People can walk around drinking the drink they think corresponds to the gender they think it is.
Here’s a blog that had gender party games http://www.throughcloudedglass.com/2012/09/more-gender-reveal-party-games.html
They had a football game or you can use any of the Team Blue/Team Pink game ideas.
If I think of anything else I’ll come back to post.

awww that was my plan too but Darling Husband vetoed.
We were going to have the phrase – Pink or Blue, Which Team are YOU? – all over and hten have an area where they could bet on the due date, weight in pounds, weight in ounces, inches, and hours of labor.

Great suggestions, thanks ladies! I ordered some “football” decor off of Amazon last night with the Pinterest inspiration to really turn our party into a full-blown football theme I guess! 🙂 Haha…it’s not even football season but oh well, I am in Nebraska and if you don’t love football here, you are pretty weird, so I’m sure people won’t even think twice about the theme.
Really wish I would have put on the invite to wear pink or blue to “support” whichever team you are on, but oh well. I ordered pink and blue mardi gras beads so people can wear whatever color they are “supporting.”
Gosh, is it Sunday yet? I am incredibly excited. This will be way more fun than cutting into our wedding cake was 😀 😀 😀

I just saw a yummy recipie on pinterest the other day and pinned it to my baby shower ideas… it is the BLUE hawian punch mixed with lemonade. Its suppose to taste like a jolly jancher!
Then you could also serve PINK lemonade!
LOVE the Poster with people picking the sides!!
We plan do do the gender reveal via a box of blue or pink BALLOONS. and we are going to have our THREE kiddos revel the gender to our family and friends 🙂 Trying to find way to keep them excited about their new Brother or Sister throghout the pregnancy! : )
