I then realized I never made a post about it. (Something about having a baby, blah, blah, blah...)
Thanks to party decor I already had, some printables others created and the Dollar Store, our Gender Reveal Party was all ready! We also didn't know what gender our kiddo was until less than a day before we revealed (our ultrasound was the day before the party)- so we didn't have to keep the secret long. We basically told everyone at/during the time of the Reveal Party.
First thing to do for a gender reveal party- make everything pink & blue.

|Dressed up a feather wreath I had from Xmas.|
|Our big Light Up Sign was ready to roll.|
|The drink setup and where people cast their votes.|
After the big reveal- everyone had surprise cupcakes (also made the night before, shortly after finding out the gender ourselves). I used this tutorial from 2 Sisters 2 Cities when making the cupcakes. In theory, we could of just had this as the big reveal, but I really wasn't sure how they'd turn out, so I did the pinata as the main reveal.

I also made snacks for people to take home. I used treat bags and stamps from Stampin' Up!
I used various printables at the party from:
- DIY Swank- the framed printable that says "it's a boy"
- Richly Blessed- Old Wives' Tales & Boy/Girl as part of Wreath
Aside from the fact that our pinata reveal kinda fell on our heads, it was a fun easy party. We also asked everyone to write down their name & address, so we could send birthday cards to them on their birthdays (as well as already have their addresses for thank you cards & Christmas cards).
It was a fun time, and didn't take much time or money to make it fun.
I hope this gives you some ideas if you're in the midst of planning a Gender Reveal Party of your own.
Have a great day!
