Are you looking for some inspiration on what food to have at your gender reveal party? If so, you've come to the right place! In this blog post, we'll share some easy ideas and suggestions for what to serve. Whether you're looking for something sweet or savoury, we've got you covered! So let's get started...
Pinwheels - a classic party food that can be easily made to fit a gender reveal theme
Pinwheels have been a classic party food for many years but they are suitable for a wide array of events due to their versatility. The bonus is that they can be customized to fit any colour scheme, which makes them an ideal choice for gender reveal parties.
Pinwheels offer guests a delicious grab-n-go snack option, and with just a few items you will create a stunning tabletop display. The basic ingredients require tortillas, cream cheese, and salsa - all of which are easily customised with your favourite flavours and colours.
With the tortilla unrolled and spread with your desired toppings, roll it up tightly before cutting the roll into slices about an inch thick. Once finished you will have beautiful pinwheel “bites” that can be arranged onto platters however you desire – there are no limits to how creative you get!
Cupcakes - another easy option that can be decorated in blue or pink depending on the baby's gender
Cupcakes are a timeless option for celebrating the arrival of a new baby. They can be personalized in many ways, such as decorating them to represent the gender of the little one.
Blue and pink are the traditional colours for boy and girl babies respectively, but designing cupcakes to suit any colour palette is easy with frosting, sprinkles, and other creative toppings.
Cupcakes also make putting together treat bags for guests quick and painless – so if you're planning a baby shower or just want to celebrate your own little bundle of joy, keep cupcakes in mind!
Pink or blue candy - fill up bowls with either colour of candy and let guests take their pick
Adding a fun twist to any party, bowlfuls of pink and blue candy are sure to be crowd-pleasers. Let your guests mix and match sugary treats by filling up bowls with both colours.
Not only are the colour options aesthetically pleasing, but they also provide a tasty treat while creating a playful atmosphere. Whether they just enjoy eating something sweet or if they have a favourite colour combination, it's something everyone can get excited about!
A cake - have a baker make a cake with either blue or pink filling inside, depending on the big reveal
Having a gender reveal cake with a surprise inside adds an exciting element to any special event. When it comes to this fun twist, incorporating blue or pink filling can be especially meaningful.
The baker simply melts the colour of your choice into the batter and once the cake is cut, guests will be amazed at the reveal! Make sure to leave room aside for cakes from family and friends but why not give your guests something extra special? Incorporating a coloured filling when having a baker make your cake is an excellent way to cap off the celebration.
Finger foods - think about serving light snacks like chips and dip, veggies and dip, fruit, etc.
Finger foods are a great choice for any get-together because they can easily be tailored to taste and dietary preferences. Whether you're hosting an adult social event or a kid's birthday party, there are lots of options to choose from when it comes to finger foods!
From crunchy chips and creamy dips to colourful arrays of cut vegetables, the array of choices ensures that everyone has something tasty on hand. Of course, fruit is always a hit as well, so don't forget to include some easy-to-pick-up fruits like strawberries, grapes, and melon cubes.
Finger food platters can also be used as meal alternatives or as light bites in between regular meals. With these tips in mind, you'll be sure to find the perfect combination of snacks for your next gathering.
Drinks - don't forget to have non-alcoholic options like soda and water available for guests
Gender Reveal parties are becoming increasingly popular and more memorable experiences, so don't forget to provide beverages for your guests. While alcoholic drinks may be a staple, you should also include an assortment of non-alcoholic beverages such as sodas and water – or any other options you deem appropriate.
Not everyone wants to or can consume alcohol, so it's important to have plenty of other options for them to cheers with! Providing non-alcoholic drinks is the perfect way to ensure that everyone in attendance can join in the fun without worry.
As you can see, there are lots of options for throwing a fun, and tasty, gender reveal party.
