No baby shower or gender reveal party is complete without baby games. We like the idea of filling blue and pink take out boxes with the gender reveal. For example, if it’s going to be a girl, fill the pink box with a note that says “It’s a Girl!” and fill the blue box with “Try Again!”. When guests arrive, have them pick their box choice based on their gender guess. When it’s time to reveal, direct guests to open the boxes. Your party will resemble Christmas morning in no time!

While you don’t have to go all out for decorations, just know that paying attention to details will be noticed by guests. For an easy decorative accessory, we love these frosted glass votives. They’re decorative on their own but with the personalized labels, your guests are sure to appreciate your careful attention to details.
