We are having friends and family over to our house for Christmas Dinner and plan on announcing the sex of our baby that night. Does anyone have any creative ideas for a way to tell them?
I think the cake idea is the easiest, especially if they're not expecting you to be telling them.
We plan on having a Sex Party (haha) when we find out. We'll plan a party with our friends and family, and find out at the same time as them.
We aren't going to find out at the doctor's office, but we'll have them write it down on a piece of paper and seal it in an envelope. We'll go to TRU or something and have them get a stuffed animal in either pink or blue (based on what's in the envelope) and put it in a sealed gift bag.
When we are at the Sex Party, we'll open the bag and find out with our friends/family.
(This was my mom's idea, and since she's really overbearing and I don't care, I let her have this idea to take the credit for.)
We're finding out on Christmas Eve morning at a special sono trip my OB friend is doing for us. Almost everyone thinks we won't find out til our A/S on Dec. 30.... so it's basically a surprise for all our family.
We are making a diaper baby (like a baby shower diaper cake, but shaped and dressed as a baby) and dressing it in a neutral outfit. We'll spread out a pink or blue blanket in a box and put the diaper baby on top. Another friend makes adorable knitted baby hats, and she's making us one in pink and one in blue. Once we know, we'll just spread out the right blanket, add the right hat and wrap up the box on our way from her OB office to our family Christmas Eve party.
