We show you how to throw the perfect owl-themed gender reveal party if you just can't face another baby shower. By Noeleen Foster
Gender reveal parties are loads of fun for both parents and guests and are a wonderful way to celebrate when it isn’t your first child and you can’t face another baby shower. We show you how to throw a gorgeous owl-themed gender reveal party.
Clever ideas for an owl-themed gender reveal party
- Breakfast and brunch celebrations are often overlooked, but are a wonderful option.
- Breakfast foods are often easier on the budget, and serving small food items along with sparkling wine and orange juice is more appealing to many than sitting down to a meal − it’s more child friendly too.
- An earlier gathering will help you beat the heat of summer and will free up the rest of your day, so you’re not entertaining or cleaning up late into the evening.
- Stick to simple recipes such as muesli, yoghurt and fresh fruit parfait, a refreshing Cajun chicken and pasta salad, ready-made waffles with ice-cream and chocolate sauce.
- Fresh melon is always a hit, so serve it cold for a refreshing finger food.
- Chip sticks will create a great little owl’s nest.
