So when it comes to babies, many of the first questions a mom will face is "do you know if the baby is a boy or a girl?" or "do you plan to find out or let it be a surprise?"
Along that line, the newest trend which I'm loving... A gender Reveal Party. i was only enlightened that such a thing exists when I stumbled upon my amazing wedding planner and coordinator extraordinairre's (she planned and executed this amazing celebration, yes our wedding!) Paola (Just Chic Events) own video clip of her gender reveal party. (with her permission of course)
This is such a neat idea. Basically, the gender of a baby is written on a piece of paper in an envelope. The envelope is then given to the baker of the cake. The baker will then bake the cake itself in pink or blue - and then the icing will hide the cake color. When the couple cuts the first slice, the color of the cake reveals the gender.
I know that others have done this as well and making it more fun, The Week shares some ideas where some people have their guests where the colors of their predictions, others take a vote at the party prior to the reveal. And while not all people want to share this special moment with friends or family, i can see how wanting to share the excitement would be natural.
What a fun way to find out...Have any of you been to a gender reveal party or are thinking about doing it yourself? I think its such a cute idea, but would have to consider the bi-coastal families into that equation! any suggestions on how to handle families that live a distance away when trying to do a party like this?
