Boy or Girl? Let's Find Out Together
Celebrate the news of your baby's sex with a gender-reveal party

Josh and Brittany Germany are having a boy
When this Midtown couple found out the sex of their second child at the doctor’s office, they wanted a unique way to announce the news to family and friends. So Brittany Germany used Photoshop to make invitations, a banner, and a voting tally sheet featuring a pink vs. blue elephant theme. She converted a plain white paper lantern into a colorful piñata with turquoise and pink crepe paper.
Brittany used a circle of freezer paper as a plug for the round hole in the bottom and attached a string. At the party, 2-year-old son, J.J., pulled the string, and out poured a shower of blue confetti.
“The girl who had the tutorial on making a piñata from a paper lantern must have been a DIY goddess, but we came up with a pretty good attempt in the end,” says Brittany. • Pinata @ ohhappyday.com/2012/01/diy-surprise-lantern.
