Cheat Sheet: How To Personalize Your Baby Gender Reveal A La Vanessa Matsunaga

We’ve seen our favorite ‘it’ girls of runways past still looking fierce these days as they glory in, yes, motherhood. This fabulosity, still palpable in the way they throw events—in a mom’s case, baby showers and gender reveal parties. Just take it from model Vanessa Matsunaga-Sunga, who knows that the best way to make any event memorable is by personalizing it. Photographer Jun Sunga's wife and Isabella's mom made sure of it especially at her gender reveal party held at the Rockwell West Tower Function Room last August 18.

First, the food. Vanessa—who is a Filipinized Japanese-Brazilian—put the best delights her family’s mixed cultures could afford together in one menu. Lechon, cake and other pastries, sorbetes and taho easily filled the table. All these were through a potluck among friends and family. Ditching any catering services. Vanessa stressed, “Dapat made with love.”

Even the games had a very personalized (and cheeky) feel to it, Vanessa made sure. The guests all gathered and competed in games that had them guess the expecting mom’s baby bump size, eat melted chocolate on diapers, and play a mini version of Minute To Win It!
