Le Partie Sugar styled this colorful and trendy gender reveal party with the theme “Handsome Fella or Gorgeous Lil’ Lady.” A gender-neutral color palette of apple green, red and sky blue ensures the secret stays hidden until the very end. Guests can even cast their gender vote (mustache for a boy and lips for a girl) before a blue or pink balloon floats out of a box to the parents’ surprise.
