“You are My Sunshine” Gender Reveal Party

By  | Last Updated:  

A baby boy shower doesn’t always have to be decorated in baby blue. Because this baby shower theme was for a gender reveal party, Jennifer, of Bella Grey Designs, wasn’t going to give away the surprise (although this was for a boy baby)! She used lemon yellow, white and grey decorations to carry the “You Are My Sunshine” ideas. The invitations, dessert table and carry-out favor boxes offer you some lovely ideas for a gender reveal theme. The fantastic printables found throughout the party are available in the Bella Grey Designs Etsy shop.

In all aspects of this shower, Jennifer used lots of texture; there is paper, metal, glass and fabric. Those contrasts, coupled with the repetition of colors, make a party more visually satisfying. I really like the idea of using baby clothes as a banner. The tiny clothes look adorable and Mama-to-be receives an extra perk to take home, too!

Gender Reveal Decorations

The backdrop of paper medallions and the tub of cuddly, stuffed animals all partner for a cheery welcome. The chevron “guess” pennants are a fun way to front the dessert table for this theme. Jennifer used a fabric cloth that has a sheen to it for the foundation, and that subtle shine also goes well with the silver pedestal and sparkly glass serving pieces, too.

A grey zinc bucket holds tree branches embellished with yellow and grey tissue flowers; a simple enrichment with a lovely result. A favorite quote displayed on the dessert table is nice touch; it’s one more thing to pique interest.

A selection of yellow and white candies and desserts fits well with the sunshine idea. Of course, lemon would be a first choice for yellow desserts. I like the lemons stacked in the vase behind the carafe holding lemonade. Wrapping the beverage bottles with a grey sleeve and tying a yellow ribbon is another way to pull the colors together. Striped straws are a great choice.

Gender Reveal Ideas

Instead of serving a cake with a pink or blue interior, Jennifer opted for mini tins, which she filled with colored candy to match the baby’s gender.
