Guide to Baby Shower & Gender Reveal Parties: Drink, Food, & Party Favor Ideas

Drink, Food, and Favor Ideas

Baby showers and gender reveal parties are becoming more and more popular. With all of the creative ideas and pinterest boards to look at, it can become overwhelming to stand out without breaking your bank. At My Cup of Tea, our teas, teapots, and sets are the perfect way to be different while supporting a local business that is doing good for our community. 


Drink Ideas

My Cup of Tea specializes in making a variety of delicious teas. At baby shower and gender reveal parties, it is normal for hosts to provide refreshments of some sort to the guests to attend. One creative way to do so is incorporate the drinks into the festivity happening. 

Blue & Pink Tea

Having colored tea for a gender reveal or baby shower is the perfect way to make a drink more exciting at a party. This can be done in several ways and will be enjoyed by many. Our “Very Berry Cherry” tea flavor is new and perfect for a pink drink. With its fruity flavor and fragrances, your guests are sure to be wowed. For a blue drink, our white teas can easily be colored for your party. White teas give you the ability to create a drink that is unique for your special day. Although you only have two shades of tea for gender reveal and baby showers, there are several creative ways to display drinks including:

  • Mason jars
  • Personalized cups
  • Glass containers

Color-changing cups

One unique way to incorporate your little one’s gender is to purchase color changing cups for the party. When guests fill their cup with a cold beverage, the cup will begin changing to the color of the baby’s gender. 

Colorful straws

Straws are an easy way to make an adventure out of drinking from a boring cup. With all of the creative designs and functions, you can easily find a multitude of crazy or cute straws for your party! Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Pink & blue paper straws
  • Colorful bendy straws
  • Crazy loop straws


Food Ideas

Whether you serving a full meal or finger foods, we are here to give you some creative and unique ideas for your next event. From food displays to delicious recipes, we’ve got your back!

Teapots & Mugs

Although we do not sell food at My Cup of Tea, we do sell teapots and other accessories that  could serve as creative food displays. Our teapots and mugs are the perfect way to make your food arrangement look beautiful. Teapots and mugs are a unique way to display tall food items such as the following:

  • Cake pops
  • Fruit kabobs
  • Smores on a stick
  • Chocolate covered bananas

Dipped Foods

An easy way to turn an ordinary food into a colorful treat is to dip it into food-colored icing or chocolate. For baby showers and/or gender reveals, dip you favorite sweet treat into pink and blue icing to make your plates look more festive. Here are a few of our favorite treats to dip:

  • Pretzel sticks
  • Rice Krispies
  • Oreos
  • Nutter Butters
  • Strawberries

Colored Cake

Although it’s nothing new, you just can’t go wrong with a classic colored cake. This is one of the simplest ways to announce or celebrate the gender of your little one. Though traditional, many people have put a unique spin on the simple food colored cake.

  • Cream filled cupcake
  • Color changing candles
  • Blue/pink dyed cake pops


Party Favors

Sending your guests home with a small happy is an easy way to give back to the people who have invested in your life and worked to make your festivity special. However, party favors do not have to be extravagant or expensive to be special. Simple and genuine goodies go a long way. My Cup of Tea sells multiple gift sets that range in price that could be perfect for your party!
