These pink and blue metallic curtains with pink girl and blue boy foil balloons are great. First, because they’re an excellent party decoration at the entrance to your home, and second, because you can use it to get people’s opinion on what the baby will be.

We’re all about making memories on this blog, and so a pink and blue sign boy or girl guest book is perfect to leave by the party entrance.

Gender Reveal Pink Blue Table Confetti
The perfect gender reveal party table decoration has to be this gender reveal pink blue table confetti.

The confetti are all shaped like babies’ onesies too, so it’s even more relevant to the theme and looks adorable.
Blue Pink Tulle Table Skirt
For our last suggestion for the pink and blue gender reveal party decorations, we have a blue pink tulle table skirt. The soft frills of this table skirt is perfect for softening the decorations again and keeping things simple, and we always think a dressed table looks much better at a party, anyway. Trust us, your guests will appreciate the extra effort you’ve gone to with this beautiful table skirt.
Bee Decorations for this party theme
What will it bee? Get it? If you did, then this punny and adorable theme might just be the right one for your gender reveal party…
Bumble Bee What Will It Bee Banner
This bumble bee what will it bee banner is the perfect place to kick off our bee gender reveal party decorations. Not only does it start with something punny, so your guests will automatically know why you’ve chosen the bee theme, but it looks great with the two bumble bees and simple lettering. This is a great, fun way to introduce your guests to the theme.
This bee pinata is so cute that it stands as the perfect party decoration on its own, but what if we use it to reveal the baby’s gender too? You can leave it hanging there for most of the party as a decoration, and then when you’re ready to find out the gender, smash it open. Have a trusted person who can keep a secret fill it with blue or pink candy, chocolates, and confetti, and then reveal the gender in front of your guests!
He or She What Will It Bee? Party Backdrop
A What will baby bee? party backdrop is perfect for a few reasons. Obviously, the fact that it fits into the theme so well and looks amazing is a big plus. But for us, it’s the photo opportunities this decoration provides. You can have guests stand in front of the backdrop with a boy or girl sign and have them vote on the baby’s gender. Then, years from now, you can show your little one what everyone thought at the party!
What Will It BEE? Yard Sign
We LOVE this sign. The what will it bee? yard sign is perfect to welcome your guests at the party entrance. It actually reads ‘he or she, what will it bee? come in to see’ and not only are we big fans of excessive rhyming, but we’re also big fans of the adorable bees on the sign with their pink and blue wings! Honestly, there isn’t a more perfect way to welcome your guests to this special party.
What Will It Bee – Party Cupcake Wrappers
A party isn’t a party without cake, so make sure you pick up these what will it bee party cupcake wrappers to decorate the cupcakes for the event. After all, this might be one of the last times mum and dad get a moment to sit down to themselves. Soon enough the little one will be here, and your cakes won’t be your cakes anymore, because you’ll always be sharing. So make these cakes special with these adorable cupcake wrappers!
What Will It Bee Balloon
These what will it bee balloons are perfect for hanging around the party venue. ‘What will the little honey bee?’ is such a cute question on the front of these balloons and they’re perfect for this bee themed gender reveal party.
Elephant Themed Gender Reveal Party Decoration Ideas
Elephants are known for their family loyalty, and if you have the same sense of loyalty to your herd, then consider an elephant theme!
Elephant Gender Reveal Backdrop
You know what every good elephant themed gender reveal party needs? An elephant gender reveal backdrop, of course, and when it’s as adorable as this one – well, you REALLY need it! Asking the question ‘he or she, what will baby be?’ with these adorable baby elephants is so cute, and you can also take a big group photo. Those who think the baby will be a boy will stand on the he/blue side, and vice versa. What a lovely memory to make together, right?
These pink and blue gender reveal balloons are perfect for this theme too. There are the elephants themselves, and some additional pink and blue balloons to help bring a pop of traditional gender reveal colour to the party. These are fun, bright, and well-suited to the party theme. What’s not to love about them?
If we suggest using a bee pinata to reveal the baby’s gender above, then of course we’re going to suggest an elephant pinata for this theme! This pink pinata might be pink on the outside, but there’s no telling what the elephant is hiding on the inside. Is it a boy or is it a girl? Well, the only way to find out is to take a pinata stick in front of all your guests and crack it open! It’s both a fun activity and the perfect party decoration!
Elephant Pattern Candy Boxes
These elephant pattern candy boxes are perfect for giving to your guests at the end of the night stuffed with candy and chocolate, but in the meantime, why not make use of their adorable design and stack them on the party table in a pyramid? If you think you can trust your guests not to peek inside, you could have a trusted somebody fill them with all pink or all blue candy based on your baby’s gender, so they have something exciting to take home with them after the pinata too.

To wrap up the elephant theme, and indeed, all of our gender reveal party decoration ideas today, we had to finish on cake. So, let’s talk about elephant cake decorations before we leave you to plan one of the most exciting parties you’ll ever have!
