Gender reveal parties are a special way that mom- and dad-to-be can reveal the gender of the baby to friends and family. There are lots of creative ways to reveal the gender and sometimes the future parents are even kept in the dark on if it's going to be a boy or a girl.
You can make the party even more fun by having some gender reveal party games that will keep guests talking and laughing the whole party long. All these games are meant to tease guests and ask for their predictions about whether the baby will be a boy or a girl.
There are a lot of old wives tales about how your pregnancy symptoms can predict the gender of the child you're carrying. This game is all about seeing if they're right.
Have mom-to-be fill out this Wives Tales prediction sheet from The Postpartum Party and post it where all the guests can see. Ask the guests to see if they agree with the wives tales prediction or if they have another prediction.
Since gender reveal parties are a pretty new concept, most guests will be stumped on what to bring as a gift. You can help your guests out by sending out these Diaper Raffle tickets with your invitation. Guests who would like to bring a gift can bring a package of diapers along with their tickets to have the chance to win a small prize.
