1. Burst with Joy: Confetti Balloons Galore! 

The OG - You can't go wrong with a confetti Balloon. Fill the air with excitement as you pop open confetti-filled balloons to unveil the gender. Fill a giant black balloon with pink or blue confetti, and gather your loved ones for an explosive reveal.

As balloon professions, we use only the best premium quality black latex balloons, stuffed with hand mixed confetti to ensure your DIY kit looks are professional as if we have delivered it ourselves! Unlike amazon or aliexpress we can guarantee your balloon will be round, not see-through, be packed with confetti and come on a beautiful (not crushed) streamer tail. More info can be found HERE

2. Pet-tastic Reveal:

It's no secret that we are obsessed with our fur babies so why not include them and get them in on the action by dressing them up in a cute pink or blue bandana. Let your pets steal the show as they reveal the gender by running into the room, stealing hearts along the way. 

Is your dog too shy to handle the big reveal responsibility. You can still involve them with a custom bandana. Here is our baby Queenie at our reveal, her bandanna read Big Sister Duties Start May 2021!

3. Let's keep the Pet theme going! Dog cake reveal anyone? 
Include your pup and surprise your guests at your gender reveal pawty! Get a friend or baker to bake a sweat treat thats filled with either pink or blue. Time for pup to lick away the outside layer to reveal if you are having a boy or girl! Note: If you have a fussy dog, choose another method to avoid an anticlimax! 

Here is a recipe we have tried! Simply make the cake as per the recipe then put some pink or blue dye before you pour into the baking tin. Alternatively, you can keep the cake as per the recipe but then add coloured dog frosting in the middle of the cake. 

4. Okay.. Now the human version: 

Who doesn't love cake? Order a custom gender reveal cake with a hidden pink or blue interior. As you slice into the cake, the colour will reveal the gender, and the sweet surprise will have your guests on the edge of their seats. Plus, you get to eat cake afterwards so it's a win win!

5. Confetti Cannons of Surprise!

Add some flair and drama to your reveal with our confetti cannons. Hand out cannons to your closest friends and family, and count down to the big moment. As you fire them up, an explosion of pink or blue confetti and smoke will fill the air, creating an unforgettable experience for everyone. We sell our cannons in packs of 3, 6 or 9 so if you want that super extra reveal we have your back! Purchase your cannons here.

One of our fave cannon reveal moments is from this wedding. Having found our prior to the big day, they surprised their guests after their I do's walking back down the isle with pink confetti raining down!  

6. Have your guests wear pink or blue:

Ready to add some playful excitement to your gender reveal party? Get your guests involved in the guessing game! Have them wear either pink or blue attire based on what they think the baby's gender will be. It's a blast to see everyone's predictions and get those friendly rivalries going! Plus, it adds an extra layer of fun and anticipation to the big reveal moment and makes for great photos.

11. The Bentley of Gender Reveal Balloons: 

I actually created this beige gender reveal balloon for my gender reveal back in 2020 and have been playing wack-a-mole with other businesses who try to claim it as their own ever since (hence the watermark). She is definitely a beauty and works very well with the boho beige gender reveal aesthetic. Check in with your local balloon professional and see if they can create something similar for you. Living locally? You can purchase an inflated one here. Or DIY version here.
