Humorous Gender Reveal Party Ideas

Humorous Gender Reveal Party Ideas | Halfpint Design - Ten ideas gender reveal party themes that range from pretty classy to pretty cheeky. But they all have a sense of humor!Humorous Gender Reveal Party Ideas

Last week we explored 7 Classy Gender Reveal Party Themes. Today I want to talk about gender reveal party ideas that have a sense of humor. These are sillier themes that usually communicate an interest of mom and dad. This is also the more controversial side of the gender reveal which have drawn criticisms against the stereotypical assignments for boys and girls. I can see the point and kind of agree, but brings meaningful personalization for the couple, their interests, or their past. If mom is a dancer and dad played football, I totally understand the “Touchdowns and Tutu” theme. Plus it’s cute and décor options boundless, but we probably should remember that not all boys will be quarterbacks and not all girls will be ballerinas. Here’s a list of humorous themes that people seem to love for their gender reveal parties:

Nuts or No nuts?

This one is definitely on the “less-than-classy” list of theme for gender reveal party ideas! But it’s plenty silly and so it makes our humorous list as well. You can use anything that has the option for nuts. For example: Almond Joys, and Mounds. Just make sure you don’t invite anyone with a nut allergy!

Bun in the oven, Cupcake or Studmuffin? 

This party was actually really cute, so why am I cringing at the theme? I suppose I take issue with the term “stud muffin,” but she did it well.

Bows or Arrows?

This bows or arrows gender reveal party idea is the most mild of all the humorous themes and could have made the classy list. Taking cues from the very popular Boho Tribal birthday party and baby shower theme, this Native American inspired gender reveal is better at avoiding stereotyped symbols and color palettes.

We are now entering the country living category. This city girl was raised in the country and I can relate to ALL of them. Some of you “city-slickers” {wink} might not, but I bet your father could!

Lures or Lace?

Fishing is a big time hobby for lots of people with access to water. This isn’t necessarily a country thing. Lures and lace gender reveal party idea.

Buck or Doe?

Hunting is another HUGE pastime outside city limits. I grew up in a hunting family. Often seen as just a sport, it also provides food for families through the winter. So if you are an Bambi lover, try not to judge. {wink} But if you love camo, this buck or does gender reveal party theme is the one for you!

Boots or Bows?

I have a cowboy farmer for a brother. I know, it’s weird that we have the same parents. But we do. And I LOVE him and the way he’s chosen to spend his days tilling the earth, working HARDER than anyone I’ve ever met. Farmers are good people. Salt of the earth. So I’m kinda partial to the boots or bows gender reveal party idea…

Guns or Glitter? and Pistols or Pearls?

These are also pretty similar so we’ll take a look at our last two theme ideas together. This would be a great gender reveal party theme for a police officer, military family, or anyone that’s REALLY in to target practice!

Summary

As a woman that loves glitter, pearls, and high heels that also fishes, shoots, and enjoys monster trucks, I assume that some of these gender reveal party ideas must fall under the “twin girl” baby shower category! Right? Stereotypes and mild sexism aside, I do have a sense of humor and can see how these themes in the “not so classy” section would be a great fit for certain couples, personalities, and hobbies. With SO many gender reveal party theme options out there, how will you show your personality? Will you keep it classy or go for humor? I’d love to see what you come up with. Please share your gender reveal party ideas with us at Halfpint Design.
