Long gone are the days where expecting parents wait anxiously in a doctor’s office to find out the sex of their child. Today, it’s all about having a party. From surprise cupcakes to balloons in a box, couples are opting to reveal the sex of their child in front of family and friends.

The pinata idea is a new one to me!  I've seen the balloons in a box and the pink or blue frosting, but never the pinata.  What other gender reveal ideas have you seen? Will you be doing something like this to reveal the sex of your baby to family and friends?

We had thought about it, but everything seems so played out. We don't want to do something everyone else has. So we may not. Still have a few weeks to decide luckily!!

I saw a silly string idea that looked fun.  Basically you have someone cover either blue or pink cans of silly string with neutral paper.  Everyone shoots the spray at the same time- and there ya have it- either blue or pink string comes out.  FUN!  I don't know that I'd do a whole party for this purpose, but it might be fun to do at some other family/friend gathering.

I saw that too! On Pinterest I think. Not sure if I want to get all the family together or not for it haha. we shall see. my next appointment is the 12th and I should find out when my anatomy ultrasound is then, so I should have plenty of time to plan something if we decide that's what we wanna do. Can't believe it's so close to being able to find out already!!!
