Over 4 million babies are born in the United States annually. For most first-time parents, finding a way to make memories during a pregnancy is important. One of the most exciting parts of having a child for the first-time is finding out the baby’s gender. Finding a unique and fun way to share this news with friends and family members is important.
One of the latest trends in the world of parenting is a gender reveal party. During these parties, the attendees are given a surprise when the gender of a new baby is revealed in an exciting way. If you are attempting to plan a gender reveal party, be sure to consider these helpful tips.
Choosing the Right Reveal Method
If you perform an Internet search of gender reveals, you are sure to find a ton of unique ideas. The last thing you want the attendees of your party to think is that the gender reveal method you chose was boring. This is why you need to do your homework before deciding how to inform the world about the gender of your bundle of joy.
Ideally, you want to choose a gender reveal method that is indicative of you and your partner’s personalities. For instance, if you and your soulmate are avid outdoors-men or gun enthusiasts, using exploding colored targets is a good idea. Not only will using this method be easy, it will also add a ton of excitement to the party.
Picking a Location for the Party
Once you have a gender reveal method in mind, you need to figure out where to hold the event. If you don’t want the hassle of catering and cleaning up after one of these parties, then renting a venue is a good idea. Luckily, there are tons of event halls out there that can provide the all-inclusive party hosting experience you want.
Before you select a venue, be sure to schedule a tour. By walking through a particular venue, you can get a feel for how large it is. You also need to ask about the amenities provided by a venue. Selecting a venue that can provide everything from the tables to the meal being served is beneficial. The money you pay for this all-inclusive experience will be worth it considering how much stress it can take off of your plate.
If you are going to use exploding targets, choose a place where you can easily caravan to the spot you have arranged to shoot the colorful exploding target. Or you can even host the event right on the spot, just make sure you have permission to stay there for a while and that if it is private land, bring some cleanup equipment, such as a shovel and rake, so the landowner will invite you back again!
Make the Party Fun and Entertaining
One of the main reasons why having a gender reveal party is beneficial is to create awesome memories with friends and loved ones. You will feel the support from them and know your baby is coming into a great new world. Planning is essential to having it go off without a hitch. Plan on having fun games and activities for the people who attend your gender reveal party. As part of the fun day, you can create a time capsule for your new baby so they can look back years from now to see just how excited everyone was about their arrival.
