Gender Reveal Parties: It's The New Rage!

Posted: Updated:

I was recently invited to a family party. It was a party for my cousin and his wife to celebrate their most recent news. After many years of trying, they were finally going to extend their family. We had heard that they were going to have twins and we were very excited to learn their gender in today's "Gender Reveal Party".

I realized I had never really heard of this type of party until then. It wasn't a baby shower but a party, to unveil the twins' sex. Another cousin, who moonlights as a professional planner, planned a perfect event. The decorations were top notch and it almost felt like a wedding party. The catered lunch, the drinks and the deserts were fantastic! The best part of course was the "cutting of the cake". That's how we're going to discover the sex of the babies.

In our case, as we gathered around the cake, anxiously awaiting to see the inside for a sign of a baby boy doll or girl doll. But we were thrown a curve ball!!! At first, a scream of "Yes, it's Blue! They're boys!"...but then..."wait a minute, there's also a strip of pink!" Hmmm, that's when we heard the happy parents-to-be announce they were indeed going to have identical twin boys! AN a fraternal twin sister as well!!!!

It was so exciting! I have a feeling these parties will be popping up more and more so don't be surprised to see a "Gender Reveal Invitation" in your (e)mail for one of your friends or family members soon. And no, you don't have to bring a present if you don't want to because the Baby Shower (for 3 babies in our case) is up next!!!!!
