Pregnancy is no joke! Some highs and lows come with it, but it always ends beautifully when you are holding your newborn baby in your arms after. It is important to have some fun though during the pregnancy! One of the most exciting parts of pregnancy is finding out what the gender of your baby is going to be! Some may want to be surprised at birth, but others may want to make the reveal a fun party for all their friends and family, a gender reveal party.
A fun and unique gender reveal party theme idea would be a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star gender reveal party. Below are some of our favorite ideas for your Twinkle Twinkle Little Star gender reveal party. We have ideas for invitations, decor, food, activities to do with your guests, party favors to send your guests home with, and even ideas for the big reveal!
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Gender Reveal Decorations
1. Stars, Moons, and Planets Cut-Outs
If you are on a budget for your gender reveal party, you can make some of your decorations. Go to your local craft store or convenience store and pick up some pink, blue, and gold sparkly paper. If you have a Cricut you can use this to cut out precise shapes. If not, simply trace out the shape you are wanting and cut it out! You can use these shapes as wall decorations, glue string to the backs and hang them from the ceiling if you’re indoors, or you can glue popsicle sticks to the back and use them as cake or cupcake toppers! If you have balloons, you can also tape them to those as well! These star, moon, and cloud cutouts are perfect options as well!
Is it even a party without balloons? You can find some pink, blue, white, and gold balloons and tape them together to be a fun archway. Or if you want to give the illusion that you are under a sky, find some darker colored balloons like navy or black and tape them to the ceiling. Use the stars, moons, and planets cut out from earlier and tape them to the balloons.
There are fun kits you can purchase on Amazon to help you make a balloon garland archway! These are so cute and are super trendy! You can also purchase some balloons that come in the shape of stars and half-moons. These are so fun and will give you a variety of balloons at your party!
3. Streamers and Confetti
Party streamers are another must-have for any party! For this one though you can make it fun and use it to enhance your star-themed party. Find some streamers with stars on them and hang them from the ceiling, walls, tables, and chairs. You can also just utilize shimmery streamers in gold and silver colors and make them look like shooting stars or stardust. To add to your stardust, find some space-themed confetti and sprinkle it on the tables for a little extra detail.
4. String or Fairy Lights
String lights are so trendy and have so much versatility to them. Even after your gender reveal party, you can use them for easy decoration anywhere! You can use the string lights to help simply light up the room. Drape them across the tables to add a little something for extra detail.
If you want to give the look that you are under a beautiful sky, take some cotton, and lots of it, glue or tape it to balloons, and tape the balloons to the ceiling. Once that is done, buy battery-powered string lights then weave and secure them within the balloons and cotton. When they are turned on they will look like a beautiful lit-up sky! This perfect touch for your Twinkle Twinkle Little Star gender reveals party will have everyone talking afterward!
5. Party Decoration Sets
There are all sorts of different Twinkle Twinkle Little Star gender reveal party sets out there! The majority of them will come with a balloon variety, plates, and napkins, flatware, cake toppers, cupcake toppers, a banner or two, confetti, or garland. These are very useful and can save you from doing a whole lot of work when trying to decorate for your party. They come with all the necessities you may need and you can put them together however you see fit! You could always buy more than one party decoration set and mix and match them together.
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Gender Reveal Party Favors
You can get crafty just like the candles and make your own soaps and cute wrappers to put around them! Soaps are something that everyone can benefit from. If you would rather just purchase some cute little soaps with fun wrappers, it is sure to always be a big hit with your guests!
7. Star Shaped Candies and Dessert Bags
You can purchase some clear plastic bags, or even star-patterned ones, and fill them with star-shaped candies such as chocolate, and chocolate-covered strawberries, pretzels, and cake pops. It’s nothing too extravagant, but it is cute and who doesn’t love a sweet treat!
Some party favors can be very corny and not something that everyone may want. Candles are a perfect happy medium for a party favor. You can always make your own if you want to be crafty beforehand! Put them in a mason jar or some other cute jar that you may find at any craft store or even dollar store. You can make your labels stick to them and can name your scent something related to stars!
But if you are wanting something simple, these candles on Amazon are already made for you and are complete with a cute label on the lid for you!
9. Hand Sanitizer
Give your guests something practical like hand sanitizer to thank them for coming to celebrate your baby’s gender reveal with you!
10. Candy Jars

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Gender Reveal Food Ideas
Aside from having a cake or cupcakes, every party needs some sweets to go with it! Add some cute cookies to the mix! These from Etsy would be the perfect addition to your party!
12. Star and Moon Shaped Finger Foods
If you take the time, you can make almost any food a shape of your choosing! You can serve food at your party that is ideal for finger foods, where people can walk around and still socialize with everyone while keeping their food with them. Foods like fruit/veggie platters, small sandwiches of your choosing, and cheese plates, are all perfect ideas for finger foods! But to make them even more perfect, almost all of these options can be cut into star and moon shapes. Yes, you can even carry your theme out to your food! You can cut out foods into whatever shapes you want either by hand or you can find some cookie cutters and use them to help get the perfect shape every time.
The cake is so important we have to give it its section! First, you need to decide if you would rather use cupcakes or a whole cake. Then you can decide on the flavor of it, plus if you want to use the cake as the reveal, you may want to add either pink or blue food coloring!
If you choose to use cupcakes then you can decorate them with different colored icing or give them an ombre effect and mix pink and blue icing for the tops. You can add some space theme sprinkles as well as pink and blue sprinkles for a cute little touch. Then, if you are feeling extra fancy, cut out some star and moon shapes, glue them to popsicle sticks and use them as cupcake toppers. Or you can just purchase some super cute ones already done!
If you choose to go the route of a normal cake the options are endless! You can combine pink, blue, and white icing and give the cake an ombre effect. You can ice the cake with navy blue or black icing, then flick on white, pink, blue, and gold edible paint to the cake for a star effect. Add some sprinkles and a cake topper of your choosing and you will have the perfect cake for a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star gender reveal.
