Frankly speaking, from my experience there is no any kind of gender reveal tradition or gender reveal party in Europe. All this fun staff has come from Northern America and I think it is kind of fun – you can create absolutely unforgettable memories and have some fun! I think 10 years ago bride’s and groom’s parties have just come to Europe and recently baby showers. In my parents youth there was no such kind of parties. Anyway, there were some other family and friends traditions. I think you can create whatever you want and make your own tradition. It is great to emphasize especially when such important events happen in your life.
In Finland and Russia people usually just announce the baby’s gender to parents and family by telling them. When I moved to Finland I was surprised that some parents don’t want to know gender showing that it doesn’t matter who will come to their life. The most important – baby itself. I could not resist and I could not even imagine doing that for myself. Although I respect everyone’s opinion of making his own decision.
So, I decided to search in Google for gender reveal ideas. I really liked the idea of opening the box full of balloons of pink or blue color, it goes great when you throw a party. Then I really liked some special idea when dad-to-be is drifting the car in front of the guests with blue or pink fume. Another great idea is to make photo set of parents-to-be with different attributes for the baby’s gender, if girl – pink balloons, ribbons, dresses, if boy – blue balloons, play balls, toy-cars etc. I found really cute and fun idea of revealing the gender when father-to-be reveals what color of prints he leaves on mom-to-be’s stomach. It also seemed pretty easy for us to make at home. We bought simple paint that kids use for painting and covered Mikko’s palms with it. All photo set was made by Mikko with his camera and tripod. The whole process of making this photo set was super fun and I enjoyed every second. I am really happy with the result as these pictures reflect our emotions so well.
I would really like to know whether you have gender reveal traditions in your country or in your circle. Would be great to know some other gender reveal ideas. Thank you<3<3<3
