Baby showers have been a popular party for parents-to-be in the UK for years, with Victoria Beckham being the latest celeb to celebrate her baby daughter’s impending arrival. But will America’s latest trend – Gender Reveal Parties – get picked up by parents-to-be here?
A typical Gender Reveal Party happens like this:
1. The couple ask the sonographer to determine the baby’s sex at the 20 week scan and write it in an envelope to keep it secret.
2. The parents-to-be then take the envelope to a bakery, where a gender reveal cake is made. Iced in a neutral colour, the sponge inside is either blue for a boy or pink for a girl.
3. Guests at the party are invited to guess the baby’s sex and wear the colour that represents whether they think it’s a boy or girl.
4. The climax of the party is when the parents-to-be cut the cake to discover whether they are expecting a son or daughter!
