Is it a boy or a girl? The long-awaited moment to announce to those around you the sex of the little treasure growing inside you has finally come! Here are some ideas to do it in an original way!
Balloon filled with confetti
We fill a big black balloon with confetti (pink or blue). When it's the big moment, the balloon is popped with a needle, revealing the baby's sex to all family and friends. It's festive, simple and, if you know someone who does pretty well with a camera, it makes for wonderful photos! Moreover, this is the method chosen by Maman Bambi!

In a large box, hide pink or blue balloons, depending on the gender of your little baby. Of course, these must be inflated with helium: thus, they will fly away when you open the box, revealing at the same time the great news to your relatives and friends. Don't forget to take photos to send to those who cannot attend the event.

We often complain that we only receive invoices, by post. Why not change the game and send a little bit of happiness with a cute card to tell your parents and friends the gender of your baby? You will find lots of pretty cards at the pharmacy or in specialized shops. And if you've definitely moved into the modern era, opt for a virtual card.
Decorate the house
You want to be surrounded by all your loved ones to tell them the news: organize a big party, and of course decorate the house with a boy or girl theme, depending on your baby's gender.

A classic of classics, revealing cake isn't losing popularity. In fact, the doubly cool thing about this cake is that you can make it your way! Not familiar with the famous cake? It's very simple: it is by cutting it that the guests will discover the baby's gender. For example, you can simply add a little food coloring to your cake mix, so that it is blue or pink, or even color the icing.
Using the same trick, you can also make cookies, candies, cupcakes, “pop” cakes…

Why not make a scratchy: and the most beautifulin all this, it is that this one is always a winner! It's easy enough to do it yourself, with metallic colored acrylic paint and dish soap (1 part soap to 2 parts paint). You should also have clear plastic wrap (wide tape will do).
First make your map, then cover what should be hidden with the plastic wrap. Mix the paint and the soap and apply the solution to the film, using a brush. We let it dry, and you're done!

Of course, for loved ones who are a little further away, or to tell your virtual friends the big news, nothing like an original photo!
