I was thinking about buying either dark colored or mylar balloons and filling each with some pink or blue confetti before filling it with helium and then having all of our family line up and hand each a balloon and a needle, counting down and letting them all pop at the same time.

Anyone else have any plans on how they want to break the news to family?

Wow, great idea!!

My BF will be away for the week, so I really don't know if I'll tell him over the phone or if I'll be able to keep it a secret till he comes back 5 days later.

This was SUPER cute, though!! Gender Reveal...Aunts, Uncles and Cousins - YouTube

I can tell you what we did today, but it's not really for large gatherings. We went to dinner - me, dh, 2 dds, and ss. I had placed all of the u/s photos in a large envelope, including the one that revealed the gender (I had not looked at the gender one, so none of us knew what it was). We passed the envelope around and had each of the kids pull out one photo until they got to the one that revealed the gender (which turned out to be near the end - good for anticipation). It was lots of fun and they loved it!

I think that is a great idea, who cares if someone else has already done it.
