For our gender reveal party, it was really important to us to have our guests be the actual “revealers” of the big news. Instead of my husband and I cutting a cake or opening up a box of balloons, which are both fantastic gender reveal ideas, I made these cute confetti filled push pops for each guest at our party. Here’s a tutorial so that you can make these for your reveal and let every loved one be included in the “pink or blue” surprise.
First, I ordered these plastic push pops from Amazon. You can get them for under $1 each. They were exactly what I needed.
Next, I designed a 3×6 cover for the push pop that went with my theme. At my gender reveal party, I had a lot of question marks around my house including one on the front door and one on a pink and blue wreath. I decided to incorporate that into the design of the push pop cover along with the overall Twinkle Twinkle Little Star theme.
I printed the covers on card stock, cut them out, and I used glue dots to adhere them to the push pops. I filled the pops with PINK confetti since I already knew that we were having a a little girl. *big smile*
Last of all, I created an “on the count of 3, we shall see” sign to explain what the push pops were and I tied a ribbon over the basket to keep eager hands from grabbing them prematurely.
How’d the push pops go over? The were a HUGE hit! I had the grandparents stand front and center while my husband and I videoed the special moment. Click here to see the video of my guests using their confetti filled push pops at my gender reveal party.
