Reveal the Gender from a Smoky Cauldron
If you’re looking for a unique way to reveal your baby’s gender around Halloween, I highly recommend that you go with the smoky cauldron! If I have another baby, this will certainly be my way of announcing because it’s just too perfect.
This spooky theme is sure to thrill guests and create anticipation leading up to the big reveal.
Not only is this a festive way to add a touch of magic to your gender reveal, but it’s also perfect for Halloween, adding an eerie element that will have your guests cackling with delight.
Along the same lines as the smoky cauldron, you can use a colored smoke bomb coming out of a pumpkin or jack o’lantern for a spooky gender reveal.
The couple above used orange smoke to indicate a girl instead of pink. This goes well with the whole pumpkin theme in this case.
One fish, Two fish, Pink fish, Blue fish
This is a cute idea if you have kids. Have their Halloween costumes as Thing 1 and Thing 2, and your belly be Thing 3.
Draw fish out of the Cat’s Hat to reveal a pink fish or blue fish!
Halloween Gender Reveal Decor Ideas
If you’re planning a full blow gender reveal party this Halloween, you may want to impress your guests with ghoulish decorations combined with baby decor. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Boo-y or Ghoul Theme
How cute is the Boo-y or Ghoul theme for a Halloween gender reveal? It fits perfectly with the spooky theme this season!
Now of course you don’t need a huge balloon arch and themed treat table to have a memorable gender reveal, but if you do decide to be a little extra, these are adorable themes!
Incorporate Halloween colors of orange, black, purple, or green to fit your personality or style of your choosing. Whatever color scheme you pick you can’t go wrong!
Pumpkin is Brewing
This is a beautiful theme that could be used as a fall baby shower or gender reveal theme. If you’re not as into the spooky side of Halloween but want to incorporate fall and Halloween elements, this theme is for you!
Pastel and Halloween Theme
I love all the little pumpkins and including pink and blue in with fall colors to make this Halloween gender reveal theme a hit.
A Baby is Brewing
Another cute theme to go along with the Halloween gender reveal is “A baby is brewing.” You can incorporate cauldrons and pumpkins to make this how spooky or chic as you’d want it.
Pink and Blue Pumpkins
Paint 2 pumpkins blue and pink. For an extra adorable factor, cut out a hole and stick a pacifier in their mouth!

Other Halloween Gender Reveal Ideas
Although the cauldron is my absolute favorite for this season, here are a few other ideas to incorporate guests, siblings, or family into the reveal as well:
Jack-o’-Lantern Decorating Contest: Ask family and friends to decorate a pumpkin with either blue or pink decorations. The pumpkin with the most creative decorations will reveal the gender of your baby!
Balloon Gender Reveal: Fill a large balloon with either pink or blue confetti, then have someone pop it at your gender reveal party!
Witchy Gender Reveal: Have a witch come to your party and cast a spell that reveals the gender of your baby! This could be done with smoke bombs, sparklers, or even dry ice for added effect.
Monster Mash Dance-Off: Ask family and friends to dress up as monsters for your Halloween-themed gender reveal party, then have them dance off against each other until someone reveals what you are having by dancing around in either pink or blue attire!
