We are hitting “baby season” around these parts. Lots of mommas are getting ready to have their sweet babies which means one thing: lots and lots of baby showers! I’m always one to love a good party, so I thought it would be the perfect time to put together my own version of a sweet soiree to celebrate the momma to be and with gender reveal parties being all the rage right now, why not mix the two together? I’ve got the perfect little gender reveal baby shower to share with you!
I always start off my party planning with a color scheme, and this party was no exception. Because the gender of the baby isn’t known just yet, I started with lots of white as a base and added pops of pale yellow throughout. The yellow makes for a great neutral and the white is so incredibly fresh.
I wanted to create a backdrop that would make a statement for guests that also didn’t cost an arm and a leg. I mean, it’s only going to be used during the party, right? It was super simple and you can easily re-create it on your own.

1. Hang the wrapping paper as the base of the backdrop.
2. Cut the banner panels from the white and pale yellow card stock. Use the adhesive to stick all of the pieces together. Set aside.
3. Using the Balloon Time helium tank, blow up enough balloons to run the length of your wrapping paper base. Tie them off with the white curling ribbon.
(Leave one balloon aside for the gender reveal.)
4. Tie the lace trims to the bottom of the balloons.
5. Using the adhesive, stick the banner panels to four of the balloons.
Cute back drop, right? When paired with lots of white and clear glass serving pieces and coordinating finger foods and desserts, you’ve got an amazing display for the perfect gender reveal baby shower.
We’ve got one last part of the party to discuss: the gender reveal!
Balloons are a simple and effective way to share what gender your new little bundle of baby will be. For this particular reveal idea, use a circle punch to cut either pink or blue circles from tissue paper, depending on what gender your baby will be.
Load them into a balloon before you blow it up.
Blow up and tie off your balloon up as you typically would. Pop it when its time to reveal the big news!
