We didn’t want to do a big gender reveal party (we didn’t do a big one with EM either) but we did want to do something a little creative. So we invited just our parents and grandmothers over and had a pull-string piñata. We pulled names out of a hat and took turns pulling a string to see which one would be the one to open the piñata and spill the contents. I was worried that not everyone would get a chance (we didn’t know which string would release the goods) but everyone got at least one chance and my mom was the one that pulled the string that let it all go. Inside was pink confetti, “it’s a girl” mints, and ping pong balls we had made with our little one’s name on them (yes, we had them made with both our boy and girl names in advance since the reveal was only hours after we found out ourselves and no, we aren’t sharing our boy name). I also found “name” confetti at the party store with her name which I picked up last minute and added to the piñata.
This was the picture we posted on Facebook and sent in text messages to reveal the gender and the name.
