If you decide you want to use lanterns for your gender reveal, then later in the evening would be the best time for your party. The lanterns will be easier to see and will be a more mesmerizing sight after the sun has gone down. Hopefully it'll be around spring or summer time so that your lantern gender reveal will be during warm weather. If it happens to be during colder weather, a bonfire is always a great addition to a party or get together.

Even though the baby's gender is a surprise to everyone, at least one person will have to know the gender ahead of time and keep it a secret. Maybe it'll be you or a close friend or family member. This way whatever gender reveal idea you decide to go with, everything can be set up with the right color.

Now that you and everyone else in your life knows what you're having, it won't be long before your planning the baby shower. Hopefully nobody was too disappointed by the baby's gender since there are people who have a preference. What matters the most is that the parents are excited and ready.
