So, get ready for the newest trend in uncomfortable events you may not want to RSVP to – the ‘”ball-voyage” party!
Wives across the country want to acknowledge their husbands who are “taking one for the team” by getting vasectomies.
Parents are announcing that there will be no more baby showers, diaper parties, gender reveals or any other new baby celebrations in the future.
And they are making that announcement in very entertaining ways.
Here are six pun-tastic takes on the outpatient procedure, including cakes, cards and, yes, even party games.
Retiring the ‘swim team’
Leah Randall went all out planning her husband’s vasectomy party. She had a custom-made cake, ball-themed menu and even printed T-shirts for the whole family – the kids’ read “Swim Team Survivor” with their birth dates.
Is it just us, or does dad look kind of uncomfortable? Hubby may be trying to smile, but look at that stance! Cake and T-shirts may be fun, but does all this social-media publicity really help with the healing?
No more knock-ups
Some wives didn’t have time for a whole party but still wanted to celebrate their husbands’ sacrifice. Amber Cole, who already has three children, opted to celebrate her retirement from C-sections by baking her husband an egg-shaped cake with mini sperm cupcakes flanking it, bearing the very blunt message: “I’m glad you can’t knock me up!”
Cole told Redbook that she was surprised by the response her homemade dessert received when she posted it to Pinterest, saying, “Normally, I’m the only person who thinks I’m funny.” Well, we’re chuckling at your sperm-cakes over here, Amber.
Putting on the squeeze
Some bakeries are eating up the new party trend, too. Signature Desserts in Nashville, Tennessee baked up this on-point confection that went viral in March 2019. On Instagram, the bakery captioned its masterpiece this way: “We make cakes to celebrate any occasion!” Judging by their work, it’s clear they mean business.
If you’re going to have a party, you better have cheesy games. One anonymous couple posted their party to Imgur and its irreverent games look admittedly fun.
From their “pin the scalpel on the vas deferens” take on pin the tail on the donkey, to a spin on The Price Is Right, where guests had to guess the prices of items the couple could afford being child-free, the post has plenty of inspiration for other couples looking to celebrate vasectomies.
Sometimes a card is all you need to express your appreciation for your man’s sacrifice. You can write a letter yourself, or find seedy Etsy companies, like SackaSnack, that create cards for every occasion. If he’s not up for a whole party and sweets aren’t his thing, just express your gratitude through words.
