My cousin is having a gender reveal party next week (yes, I know it’s the sex, not the gender, I took that class in college, but people look at you weird when you say sex reveal) and I’m the only one that knows the sex of the baby. Mwahahah, I am drunk on the power.
Anywho, so I’m making the little cake and cupcakes for the party (small, just parents and siblings/spouses so like 12ish people.) I was wondering if anyone had seen anything cute and not so blah. Pinterest has the same few things pinned over and over again.
ALSO, Mom-to-be would like to make everyone GUESS the sex before its revealed. Does anyone have any cute ideas on this? I see the cute little buttons on Etsy, but this is kinda last minute, so no time to order. I’d like to have them wear their guesses so something visible.

@Paiger8: You could have people wear the color they think it is? Good luck! I’d love to be the only one that knows!! 😉 How’d they pull that off so they didnt find out?
ETA: nvm you already said my idea lol. You could do clothespins painted blue or pink that they could pin on themselves or a clothes line (with their name on it to identify?)

I’ve always liked the idea of the cake’s inside colour colour revealing the sex. I also like an idea I heard where the parents open a large box and the colour corresponding to the baby’s sex fly out!!

You could make little ribbon bows and bowties for people to pin to themselves! That would be inexpensive and easy. It sounds like fun, good luck!

Have you see the beau or bow themes?? You would put up two pictures of the ultrasound and one has a pink bow on the head and the other has a blue bowtie on the neck. You could attach it to a poster and then people put their names on a bow/bowtie and put it under the ultrasound picture they think. To actually reveal I really think dying the inside of the cake is adorable because the parents get to see first and have a second to be excited together before everyone else can see! Just make sure you get a picture of their faces while they are cutting because those are the best!

My friend had stick on mustaches or hair bows you could choose at the door. Everyone was wearing their guess when they announced what it was! I know mustaches are pretty overdone right now, but I thought it was pretty cute.

@Paiger8: I did a gender guessing game at my sister’s shower and I had bowls with blue or pink Peeps and then people placed them in a big bowl so we could see if one gender had more guesses than the other. Being that it’s Spring and close to Easter Peeps could be cute for the guessing.
As far as the reveal I’ve seen on Pinterest pictures of a huge cardboard box with the color of balloons inside for the couple to see when they open it up and I love that reveal-plus great photo op for their reaction.
