Kourtney Kardashian reveals how over-the-top gender reveal party came together in less than 48 hours
Kourtney Kardashian gave more insight into her lavish gender reveal party on June 24 — and how it all came together in under two days.
The reality star, who announced last month that she and husband Travis Barker are expecting a baby boy, opted for what the Poosh team called a “‘Tour stop’ vibe” instead of a traditional pink and blue gender reveal.
Kardashian, 44, and Barker, 47, called up event planner Corrie Mendes the Thursday before the event to piece together their extravagant reveal.
Their gender reveal moment featured “biodegradable” paper streamers to celebrate the “iconic moment.”
“While they were both excited for whatever God’s plan was for their baby, the blue pop bursting from the streamer cannons was electric,” a Poosh newsletter read on behalf of Kardashian.
“You couldn’t really see them until they were floating in the air, making the anticipation of the big secret that much more emotional and exciting.”
As Page Six previously reported, the inside of the chic rocker party was as gorgeous as ever, combining the style of both the “Kardashians” star and the Blink-182 drummer.
The entrance to the celebration featured a “will-call” stand offering pink or blue wristbands so that attendees could make their guesses for the gender.
Additionally, artwork designed by Edgar Regalado showcased all-access passes and artwork featuring Barker’s drum set with the words “World Tour with special guest Kravis” written on the outside.
“Everyone was so obsessed with it, they wanted merch with the design, although it was a one-time special piece,” the newsletter read.
In the entryway was a beautiful arrangement of baby’s breath flowers surrounding Barker’s drum set, champagne glasses, candles and a mini microphone.
Black heart-shaped balloons also filled the room, tying everything together.
The expecting couple — who married in May 2022 — tapped Blink-182’s production designer, John McGuire, to build a “literal stage” where the big reveal took place.
“Authentic wooden stadium seats set up around roadie cases acted as coffee tables where guests awaited the action,” the announcement described.
The posh party offered gender-themed drinks backed by Kendall Jenner’s 818 Tequila, as well as disposable cameras for guests to make tangible memories for Barker and Kardashian to “use later in their baby scrapbook.”
As for food, the Lemme owner let loose a little and made sure that there were no dietary restrictions in place for the party’s food options.
“She wanted to just have the yummiest food possible and lean into her pregnancy cravings,” it read.
“There were nachos, popcorn, chicken nuggets, corn dogs, hot dogs, sliders, pizza, and more, as well as vegan options of everything for Travis.”
Kardashian shares three kids, Mason, 13, Penelope, 10, and Reign, 8, with ex Scott Disick.
As for Barker, he has two children with ex-wife Shanna Moakler, son Landon, 19, and daughter Alabama, 17, in addition to stepdaughter Atiana, 24.
