2. Balloon Burst
Create an exciting and memorable POP with a gender reveal balloon. A giant opaque balloon filled with confetti will burst with pink or blue as it’s popped in front of your guests! Check out Knot & Bow for this fun DIY surprise!
3. Confetti Cannon
Similar to the gender reveal balloon concept, a confetti popper is another fun way to announce the gender of a new arrival! Involve your guests by giving everyone a push pop filled with the secret confetti. On the count of three have everyone push the pop to reveal pink or blue! Find these on Thimble Press
4. Guests Guess
Set up a station at the event so friends and family can vote team pink or team blue upon arrival. A simple pin is an inexpensive option for your guests to wear their guess! We love the station from Alan & Steph where they had guests don pink or blue sunglasses to show their vote!
5. Pinata Pop
Have your guests take a crack at breaking the secret open with a pinata! With the right strike, the paper will collapse and the loot will shower down in candies or confetti of one color or the other. Another fun and interactive way to get your guests involved in the big reveal!
