Want it to be a surprise for you too? Before the shower, visit your local florist and select two monochromatic bouquets -- one in pinks and one in blues. Hand the florist your ultrasound information, and ask him or her to gift-wrap either the pink or the blue bouquet, corresponding to your baby's sex. (No peeking!)
At the party, open up the gift-wrapped box for the reveal of your flowers! Each guest can take a bloom from the bouquet as a floral party favor.
