Default Gender reveal parties?

Ever done one? Ever been to one? I guess this is a fairly new thing? I never heard of them until a couple years ago. It seems silly to me, but whatever. My stepson is having one of these right now at my house. Luckily......I mean unfortunately I had to work today. My wife is super excited about it. She's decorated a table outside and they are shooting Tannerite with either pink or blue powder in it. My wife is the only one who knows the gender. The doctor told her, so the parents won't even know until the Tannerite blows up. Don't get me wrong, shooting Tannerite is always cool, but asking people to come over just to see if you're having a boy or a girl seems silly to me. I know, I'm old school. Darn kids today

I'm not a fan of learning the sex before birth. It drives me crazy that everyone wants to know what they're having ahead of time. I love surprises and there was no better feeling than when both our babies were born and healring the doc say "congratulations it's a girl". I will admit it drove our parents crazy, especially since we didn't give them any hints as to what names we chose either until the girls were here.

I really thought this was a really strange thread . . .
Happily surprised.

Well, I couldn’t have cared less about my baby’s genders.
Just their health.
Woman thing. Put me down as GOF
On couple showers, baby showers or gender announcement showers.

I used to see them on Facebook all of the time. Iím shocked at the stuff women are able to get men to do and then post it all over social media for the world to see. I know most of these guys would of never went for this stuff 20 years ago and now they seem to have no trouble gaying it up.

We did with our first. Gave an envelope to one of our friends and she hung a balloon filled with powder. Then my wife and I shot it, talk about “buck-fever”

Default Gender reveal parties?



My daughter did it earlier this year. They didnít know the gender of the baby until the reveal also. My grandson loves baseball, so they let him reveal what his sibling would be with a paper baseball loaded with chalk on a tee. It was so neat. (Videos wonít post on here, otherwise Iíd post the video)

I called and asked the wife what everyone was doing. She said the boys are all outside shooting your guns. Maybe there's more to these parties than I realized. I should have hidden all the ammo before I left the house

I'm a grumpy A-hole, so take it for what its worth. I have never been to one and don't plan on going. Fortunately I've always had to work when these things come up. There may have been one or two that I just refused to attend, can't remember. Not a fan here, but different strokes for different folks.

Our granddaughter had her party last month and have a great grandson on the way. Luckily had a bull go walk-about and spent the day chasing him down, and didn’t have to go. After hearing all the games my daughter n law had planned for the party, if the bull hadn’t jumped the fence I would have opened the gate.

Some of you guys need to lighten up a little. I haven’t been a part of one of these yet but generally family and friends come over and you shoot guns, drink beer and bbq. I don’t care what you call the party, I just enjoy the good times that come with it. Maybe I’m a minority around here I guess.

AC, kiss all of your ammo bye bye lol.

Edit: After reading some of the other responses I’ll clarify. If myself or one of my friends is putting it on I’ll go. If the womenfolk are planning it I’ll be busy that day.

Some of you are knocking something without even thinking about it. When people used to find out the gender of their child it was only the mom and whoever was at the ultrasound. I don’t have kids yet, but finding that out sure seems like a special moment. People are now sharing that special moment with friends and family. Maybe I’m not old and grumpy enough yet to see how any of that is a bad thing.

Yep, I don't know about everyone's gender party, but I've changed my mind. They are shooting guns, having BBQ, and a good time. I stand corrected. I may be completely out of ammo when they are done though

Thatís an interesting thing to eat away at you! As though child birth would be anticlimactic if you went in already knowing what you are having.

Itís amazing how many people lose sleep from what others are doing in their own home, on their own time, with their own dollar.

I'm not losing any sleep, just not a fan. Maybe it has something to do with knowing a couple people that ended up having a sex opposite of what the doc told them. They went from having the baby room all decked out in pink or blue to almost a state of mourning. Don't get me wrong once everything settled down they were overjoyed to have a healthy baby.

I've been to a few and had one with ours. Good time. Good excuse to get together and celebrate with friends. All that ive been around were lots of good food and drinks with a surprise of some sort as simple as cutting a cake with a pink or blue inside to shooting tannerite, 1 was a huge smokebomb, sparklers etc.
If you take away the gender reveal part ours are basically you're everyday bbq or crawfish party

I assumed a gender reveal was on the same level with a baby shower. More of a girl thing than something for guys to enjoy. Like I said after seeing all the fun they had today, I wish I could have been there.

Ive made every birth, birthday, and school event for my kids, grandkids, and will for my great grandson. Reread my post it was planned by my daughter in law and the games and activities she had planned, NOBODY wanted to come. It was more her party than my granddaughters. By the way granddaughter offered to come help after the party if we hadn’t got him back home, so the impression I’ve made on my kids and grandkids is good

We did it for our first, but probably won't throw as big of a shindig the second time around. It really amounted to getting together with friends and family, frying fish, drinking beer, and hanging out until the time came for the reveal. My uncle filled a black balloon with the appropriate paint color and taped it to about a 20" square piece of stretched canvas. I shot it with my bow at 20 yards, and the splattered piece of canvas hangs in my daughter's nursery. My uncle smeared some blue paint on the edge of the balloon mouth and on his hands, and I saw it whenever I was about to shoot. It was that much better when it was actually full of pink. A great memory and glad we got to share it with those who came.

It was a lot of fun!
