How Do Gender Reveal Confetti Cannons Work?

Gender reveal confetti cannons use compressed air that goes off with a twist, skyrocketing bits of pink or blue colored confetti up to 20 feet in the air. Consider this special effect for a thrilling “pop” of color that makes for big smiles, great photos, and cherished memories.

You may be wondering why gender reveal confetti cannons are so beloved, how people order the right color without knowing the gender of their baby, what options you have to choose from, and whether they’re truly easy to deploy.

Why Have a Gender Reveal Party?

The gender of your baby is one of life’s good surprises. You’ll be able to finalize your name shortlist, decorate the nursery, buy clothes, and imagine the days ahead with a little more clarity. Unlike baby showers for moms and diaper parties for dads, gender reveal parties join both sides together and invite family and friends to hear the delightful news.

Why Are Confetti Cannons Popular Gender Reveal Supplies?

While some parents-to-be cut a colored slice of cake or place colored balloons in a box, confetti cannons can be more discreet—and ultimately surprising—to deploy.

By comparison, confetti cannons:

  •  Go off with a surprising “POP!” that makes everyone smile and laugh
  • Mask the color well, so no one knows the grand finale before it’s time
  • Create fun action photos with vibrant colors
  • Offer easy clean-up with a quick sweep of the broom
