What are some ways to reveal the sex of your baby to friends and family?
Cupid’s Advice:¬†Having a baby is an exciting moment for you and your¬†partner, as well as for your other loved ones. Revealing the baby‚Äôs sex can be just as thrilling as revealing that you‚Äôre having a baby in the first place. Here are some tips to share that surprise with your friends and family:
1. Send the sonogram:¬†There’s no better way to share the joy of revealing your child’s gender than by¬†letting everyone see for themselves. Send out a copy of the sonogram with a message saying “It’s a boy!” or “It’s a girl!” and your loved ones can have a¬†memento¬†of this incredibly special time.
2. Throw an “unrelated” color party:¬†Throw a dinner party that seems to be themeless, but cater it to the sex of your baby through your outfits, decorations and refreshments. You and your¬†significant other¬†can be decked out in pink or blue while everyone else wears white. At the end of the night, tell everyone what the real theme is!
3. Make it a competition:¬†Invite your friends and family over for a little competition. Have them cast votes as to the gender, then present a cake frosted in neutral colors. When you and your¬†honey¬†cut into it, the pink or blue cake inside will tell everyone what you’re having!
