She took one of her best friends along with her to an ultrasound and had the technician print out the photo and label it if it was a boy or girl on the back. The technician placed the photo into a sealed envelope which her friend kept with her. In other words, my daughter had no idea if she was having a boy or a girl until the party!
The Balloon Gender Reveal Box
1 large cardboard box
Pink, Black and Blue Markers
Pink or Blue Helium Balloons
Pink or Blue Ribbon
Seal up the box...you can either just fold-over the flaps on the top or use a little bit of clear shipping tape but you definitely want to make sure that the balloons are securely inside the box. We also recommend that you fill up the balloons no more than 10 hours before the party as you don't want them deflated.
The box is now ready for the party and it is best to take the box outside and let the new parents open it up in front of their party guests to learn if they are having a baby boy or a baby girl! (or in some cases, one of each!).
Very inexpensive and fun! The parents loved this idea and all of the guests enjoyed it too! Most importantly, have fun at your gender reveal parties and don't stress yourself out by having elaborate & fancy parties where people can't have fun and enjoy themselves.
