We waited sooo long to find out the gender of our second baby that I had to do something to keep my mind off the wait. I decided to throw a small confetti gender reveal party for some of my close friends and family.
I really wanted a gender neutral theme so that I could start the planning well in advance and to keep this a secret from the guests until the BIG REVEAL. So I decided on a confetti or polkadot theme.
I cut confetti vinyl for the wall behind the candy table and used some ‘YAY’ letter balloons as backdrop. On the candy table the cake was the focal point and also the center of the reveal. I found out the gender on the Monday afternoon and baked the cake that evening, colouring it ‘PINK’. I then iced it and added some sprinkles to disguise the inside.
A friend assisted me with the watercolour confetti on the poster. The original poster was bought on-line from colourmoon on Etsy.com.
A great confetti gender reveal party idea – my neighbour and I cut streamers up to use as confetti in see-through balloons. It was a fun process, but somewhat complicated to get the confetti back into the balloons again. We ended up using a funnel which simplified the process quite a bit.
