The Personal Touch of our DIY Gender Reveal

The Personal Touch of our DIY Gender Reveal

How do you feel about this story?


When I found out I was pregnant with my second child, I couldn’t wait to share the exciting news with my family and closest friends. Of course, one of the biggest questions on everyone’s minds was – are we having a boy or a girl? Instead of just finding out at the doctor’s office, my husband and I wanted to make revealing the baby’s gender a big celebration to get all our loved ones together.

That’s when the idea of throwing a DIY gender reveal party came up. I’ve always loved putting my own personal stamp on parties and events, so doing a DIY reveal felt like the perfect way to add special meaning and memories to this pregnancy milestone.

My Growing Family

My sister Michelle eagerly took charge in planning all the DIY details for the party. Since she was the only one who knew the baby’s gender ahead of time, she handled ordering all the supplies for the big reveal – like smoke bombs, poppers, and a cake with the gender hidden inside. I could tell she took such pride and care in bringing this meaningful vision to life for us.

When the day finally arrived, I was overflowing with anticipation and excitement. Walking into the party space and seeing all the custom DIY elements my family had worked so hard on like the decorations and props, it gave me such a warm feeling. Every handmade item was infused with love for our family and the new baby on the way.

Finally, the moment we had all been waiting for – the actual gender reveal! When that bright blue smoke went off and those poppers rained down blue confetti, revealing we’re having a baby boy, the room literally erupted with cheers, happy tears, and hugs all around. In that joyful moment, I felt so grateful to have all my favorite people surrounding me as we celebrated this new life together.

The DIY aspect made every part of the party feel extra meaningful and personal. From the custom cake to the unique games or activities, all the handcrafted details reflected our family’s bond and the tremendous love we all have for this baby. Simply put, taking a DIY approach filled the whole event with heartfelt intention.

Of course, hosting a DIY gender reveal party isn’t just about saving money, although that’s definitely a perk! For me, the most rewarding part was seeing my loved ones’ excitement over the DIY designs and being able to bond over this amazing pregnancy moment together.

It’s a Boy!

I’m so glad we went the DIY route for our gender reveal. All the personal touches made the party an unforgettable experience overflowing with joyful memories. If you’re expecting a new baby, I highly recommend taking the DIY approach for your gender reveal. It’s an incredibly meaningful way to celebrate with cherished family and friends!
