GENDER REVEAL INVITATIONS THAT BRING AS MUCH EXCITEMENT AS THE PARTY ITSELF
If you’re not familiar with the concept, a gender reveal party is held primarily to discover the gender of the baby for the expectant parents and all guests in attendance. The gender reveal concept is a twist on the more traditional baby shower and adds a fun layer of anticipation to the day of the event. There are plenty of creative ways to unveil the gender of the baby, such as cutting open a cake to see if the inside is blue or pink, popping a balloon full of confetti to see what color it is, or hitting a baseball that explodes into a pink or blue powder. Whatever grand reveal you are planning, make sure you have a big and supportive audience by sending out gender reveal party invitations from Minted’s beautiful collection. Choose from handmade designs in popular themes to match the look and feel of your party, even if it’s a virtual one.
POPULAR GENDER REVEAL PARTY THEMES
The gender reveal party invitations you send out are the first reflection of the party you’ll be throwing, so it can be fun to have them hint at the theme of your event. If you’re looking for ideas on themes that are festive and potentially gender-neutral, give these a whirl:
- Animal Theme: Use the animal theme to go on a safari to discover the gender of the newborn. Use animal-themed decorations to make this a fun adventure for guests. You could also work around a duck theme, with yellow decor and water accents that ultimately end in a game of “Waddle it be?” Whatever animals you wish to play up, Minted has invites to match.
- Balloon Burst: Minted offers some designs that feature pink and blue balloons on the card front. If you’re throwing a virtual shower, send each guest a pink and blue deflated balloon and ask them to inflate one for team pink or one for team blue, depending on what gender they think the baby is. Then when it’s time, the host can reveal the actual gender!
- What Will It Bee? Gender reveal baby shower invitations in this theme will certainly cause a buzz. When guests arrive at the baby shower they may enjoy black and yellow desserts, antenna headbands to wear, and potentially a bee-hive piñata that will need to be cracked open to reveal the gender of the baby.
- Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star: Opt for a magical gender reveal party theme by focusing on the celestial world! Use big clusters of moon and star balloons, infuse metallics or twinkly lights, and ultimately cut the cake for the boy or girl revealing. Use Minted’s star-struck gender reveal party invitations to allude to a theme inspired by the beautiful night sky.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Still working out the final logistics of your gender reveal party? We have organized some of the most commonly asked questions and answers to set you up for success.
What Pregnancy Week Do You Have the Party?
If you’re planning to have a gender reveal party and a baby shower separately, you want to space them out appropriately. Throwing a gender reveal party usually occurs during the second trimester (sometime after 20 weeks is the best), that way you can plan a more formal baby shower in the third trimester if you desire.
What Details Do You Include on the Invite?
You should include the name of the mother or couple you’re honoring, the date and time of the reveal, a party address or virtual login info, registry information, and how to RSVP.
Who Do you Invite?
Great question! Gender reveals are typically pretty intimate affairs so it’s fine if your guest list is short (but by all means, go all out if you’d like it to be a big party!). The couple’s parents, grandparents, and siblings should be at the top of the list, along with their closest friends. Extended family members can be invited too.
Are You Supposed to Bring a Gift?
It depends on whether there will be a more formal baby shower later down the line. Inspect the gender reveal baby shower invitation that is sent to see if there is any mention of a gift registry. If you do decide on bringing a gift, make sure it is gender-neutral!
