A Gender Reveal is such a fun way to involve everyone in the excitement of your new arrival. And a Gender Reveal party is one of our favorite celebrations! What is more fun than gathering your closest friends and family together to find out at the same time whether your new baby will be a boy or a girl.
Do you serve food at a Gender Reveal?
Usually a Gender Reveal party lasts a couple of hours so it’s a great idea to serve some snacks or finger food. That way, while your guests are waiting for the reveal of the gender of the baby, they can enjoy a bite to eat.
Pink and blue-themed Gender Reveal party food is a fun way to bring your party theme into your food. And there are lots of pretty Gender Reveal party food ideas to choose from.
