Awhile back I shared some creative announcements for announcing pregnancy and it got my wheels turning on what happens next … the exciting GENDER REVEAL!

With my first pregnancy, my husband and I opted to wait and find out our baby’s gender at birth. I totally recommend this and absolutely loved the surprise. Plus, it helped us purchase the big baby items – stroller, crib, deluxe diaper bag – in gender neutral colors and styles … a definite money saver when our second arrived. For a number of reasons, with our second, we found out the gender at our 20 week ultrasound and hosted a gender reveal party to share the news with our family and friends. Our photos weren’t as glamorous as these, but the excitement was just as real.

Take a peek at these fun gender reveals and please share links to your own creative announcements!

Balloons in a box are a darling idea that the whole family can be involved in! Or, just a big sibling 🙂 Or, what about a Balloon sequence shot … so simple and yet such a great announcement! I love this sequence ice cream shoot too!


Food is another fun way to announce your little one’s gender. Simply color in the “HE’ or “SHE” of Hershey’s bars as a party favors or have a local bakery whip up a fancy inside to your party’s dessert. Jones Soda holds a special place in my heart (ever since my daughter was pictured on the Zilch Black Cherry flavor) and I think these bottles would be such a tasty announcement!

Our gender reveal party invitations weren’t even close to being this cute … I adore the “little man” and “little lady” theme.

How perfect would these enhanced photos be to pop in the mail if your family and friends aren’t close by?

For baby #3 (when and if they join or family), I’m pretty sure I’m going to go the scratch off route … I love them!

So, spill the beans! How did you announce your baby’s gender?
