These days, finding out the gender of your baby is more than just the ultrasound technician sharing the news at an appointment. It’s an opportunity to gather with friends and family and make the big reveal a celebration of your baby! True gender reveal party themes can be hard to come by, so we’re thrilled to offer these Team Pink Or Blue? Baby Shower Decorations. These party supplies feature a retro sporty look in bright pink and blue. The ensemble includes dessert plates, dinner plates, reversible pink and blue beverage napkins, luncheon napkins, and lots of pink and blue solids to match.
Are you preparing to throw a Team Pink or Team Blue baby shower? Read on for our decor, food, and activity ideas!
Decor: Decorating for a Team Pink or Team Blue Baby Shower is easy! We love the idea of decorating half of the tables with pink decor and half of the tables blue, and as guests arrive, ask them to sit at a pink or blue table based on their prediction of the baby’s gender. Decorate the pink tables with Candy Pink tablecovers, bright pink gerbera daisy floral centerpieces, and tableware from the Team Pink or Blue Baby Shower Decorations. Decorate the blue tables with Turquoise tablecovers, blue-tinted gerbera daisy floral arrangements, and tableware from the Team Pink or Blue Baby Shower Decorations. A cute idea is to arrange the gerbera daisies in baby bottles that you can clean and give to the expecting mom after the party. Hang a bright pink pennant banner across one wall and a bright blue pennant banner across the facing wall. Also include crisp white accents with streamers, tissue paper poms, and hanging lanterns.
Food: We recommend throwing a mid-afternoon party so a coffee and dessert menu will suffice. To eat, desserts like cupcakes, cake pops, and cookies can be iced pink and blue to fit the theme. To drink, serve coffee and spa water. Make a pink spa water with watermelon and mint and a blue spa water with blueberries and lemon.
Activities: The main activity of the party is guessing what the gender will be, so give your guests the information they need to choose their side! Look up old wives tales for predicting gender and consult with the expecting mom about her experience with each. For example, the baby’s heart rate, how the mom is carrying, and the mom’s skin are all old wives tales to predict gender. There’s also the Chinese calendar, the pencil test, and the ring test. Present each of these old wives tales at the party and have guests make their predictions and choose Team Pink or Team Blue. Have pink and blue clothespins for guests to wear to show off their guesses.
When it’s time for the big reveal, there are many ways to stage it. Most of these ideas require someone to know the gender of the baby before the parents to arrange the surprise. You can ask your doctor to slip the gender of the baby in an envelope to hand off to the person who is staging the reveal. Here are some ideas:
- Cut into an iced cake to reveal a pink or blue filling.
- Put a baby boy or girl’s outfit into a closed garment bag for the parents to unzip.
- Fill a large box with helium-filled pink or blue balloons for the parents to open.
- Get cans of pink or blue silly string and have guests circle the parents and spray them for a fun surprise.
- Pop an opaque balloon filled with pink or blue confetti.
