Gender Reveal Signs
Sometimes it seems as though America has gone “gender reveal” crazy! It wasn’t long ago that some poor family wound up burning through large swaths of California after their party pyrotechnics went haywire. But if you might have thought that a situation like that caused people to take a step back and reconsider their grand reveal parties, you would be wrong. While perhaps there is a movement to get back to safer, more reasonable ways of surprising guests with the gender of the baby, these parties are still tremendously popular. If you’re ready to plan one of your own, you can use our charming Gender Reveal Signs to make the most of the day.
Plan With a Friend
A lot of people mistakenly believe that the main event of a gender reveal party is when the cake is cut (or the fireworks explode) and all the guests get to find out if the couple is having a boy or a girl. No, no: The main event is getting to see the couple find out. That’s where everyone’s eyes go once the gender is revealed. People are there because they want to see that intense moment of joy and surprise on the couple’s face when they learn the truth. So if you’re pregnant and planning a party, make sure you enlist a co-planner who can arrange for the reveal without letting you in on the big secret ahead of time. Our Gender Reveal Signs, of course, can be used to hype up the mystery!
Find a Great Venue
A great venue is in the eye of the beholder. Many couples like to throw their reveal parties at home, where they can have full control over the food, the space, and the comfort of being right where they belong. Others like to rent out vast halls or have their parties on picturesque hills where entire communities can be a part of the festivities. Wherever you’d like to throw your party, these Gender Reveal Signs can help you ensure that everyone has an absolute blast. They can be used to direct guests to the event, enliven the theme of the party, and spread fun and cheer throughout the day. Everyone’s waiting for that one magic moment, but there’s no reason why you can’t have some fun along the way.
One of our favorite ideas actually came from a customer. Kay H. of Chicago said that she designated one of our Gender Reveal Signs as a kind of special guestbook. She hung a black Sharpie by the sign and asked each of her guests to put their signature on the sign along with whatever well-wishes they cared to send. At the end of the day, she was not only basking in her newfound knowledge of the baby’s gender (she had a girl) but in the love and support of her friends and family. We can’t think of a better way to use our signs!
