Hosting the Ultimate Gender Reveal Party
Gender reveal parties: the time and place where a bunch of ladies (and reluctant spouses) come together to speculate over the genitals of either their own or their best friend’s unborn kiddo, while nibbling on dainty finger foods and slicing into pink or blue cake. Sounds like a total drag, right? After all, you already know where babies come from; do you really need to discuss it for three hours on a Sunday afternoon?
If you think a gender reveal party has to be the epitome of tedium and boredom, think again. Gender reveal parties aren’t just for soccer moms anymore. In fact, if you’ve been thinking about hosting a gender reveal for the little dude or dudette hidden away in your womb, but you’re worried about boring your guests to tears, then you haven’t considered hosting the ultimate gender reveal party. Yep, there’s a difference and yep, we’re gonna tell you all about it.
Ditch the Frou Frou
When you think of good eats, what comes to mind? Whole grain muffins with – shudder – raisins? Plates of crudités, like carrots and hummus? Nah, people don’t get out of bed for tofu. Make your gender reveal party spread stand out by skipping the bland hor d'oeuvres and lay out the good stuff. Set out a dish of queso for nachos, prepare some BBQ sliders, and when in doubt, add bacon to something. For dessert, you can’t go wrong with cheesecake or brownies. Now that’s what we’re talking about!
Shake Up the Theme
Gosh, everyone’s doing the cutsey stuff at their gender reveal parties these days. From soft pastels to knitted cozies and been-there-done-that party games, a gender reveal party has gotten to the point that it’s almost parody of itself. They’re so overdone, they’re practically a tired cliché. Instead, come up with some unique and fun themes for your party. For instance, include a whiskey tasting (for the non-pregnant guests, of course). Or put on some Garth Brooks and do some impromptu line dancing. Have fun, for crying out loud.
