Baby-Q BBQ Gender Reveal Party Ideas

How to Plan a Baby-Q BBQ Gender Reveal Baby Shower Party // Curated by Bellenza.

Send your baby Q invitations (1) out as early as spring, if you will be hosting this event in June. Since this event will be a backyard affair, resort to using easy-to-find materials for décor. The table centerpieces can be simple mason jars filled with sunflowers (2) or carnations, while the venue can be decorated with whimsical white balloons. Hang a baby Q party banner (3) by the gender reveal game table.

Assemble a BBQ hotdog and burger buffet table (4) complete with garnishes, side dishes like coleslaw, macaroni salad, and sweet potato fries. Offer a selection summer salads and bowls of fruits. Offer up crunchy chips and dips. Make the party drinks fun as well by serving them in blue and pink colors. A gender reveal dessert table is another fun option to carry the theme. Include a gender reveal cake (5) that you can make at home. Match it up with a cute display of gender reveal cotton candy cupcakes (6)!

Keep guests entertained at the party with a gender reveal game table (8) where guests bet on the gender of the baby. Prepare a table with vases so guests can drop their bets. Once this is complete, tally the bets and decide who gets to take home the prize money by guessing the correct gender of the baby! Lastly, offer guests personalized BBQ baby shower bottles (9) of sauce as a favor to take home.

BabyQGender Reveal Cakes

“It’s a _______” cakes are a sweet and simple way to go, as seen in either loaf shape (1 – via Wilton). Pink and blue icing dots on the outside, and pink or blue tinted icing inside.

For the all-important color clue, you could also opt to hide pink (or blue) colored candies inside the cake (3 – from Bowl of Delicious) or tint the batter itself for colored cake layers (6 – from The Baking Explorer).

Get with the trend by making a gender reveal piñata drip cake that is sure to gather big surprises (4 – via The Baking Fairy)!

And for fun and fancy decorations, what about a marquee-style cake topper (2 – from Wilton, via Joann) or candy and cookies coated in edible gold (5 – from Lindsay Ann Bakes). Hint: This last cake is no-bake, since it’s layers are actually rice krispie treats!
