Whitney and Kevin Allen decided to discover the gender of their baby at the same time as their family and friends. After considering different options, the Allen’s decided to set off colored fireworks to reveal their baby’s gender. “We bought a blue and pink set of fireworks and invited our friends and family over to celebrate,” Whitney says.
Guests wore blue or pink to reveal their gender vote and cooked out while waiting for sundown and the fireworks display.
After dark, a friend opened the envelope with the gender and prepared for the big reveal. Guests gathered, and on the Allen’s countdown, the appropriate fireworks were lit.
“We all watched as the night sky lit up BLUE for our new baby boy,” Whitney remembers. “We loved the choice for our gender reveal!” William Gerald Allen was born last November.
