The grand surprise of a gender reveal party is typically represented by pink (for girls) or blue (for boys). Cutting into a colored slice of cake is one of the oldest trends, but newer and more exciting options--like gender reveal powder cannons--offer a more interactive way to get party guests involved.
How Do Gender Reveal Powder Cannons Work?
Gender reveal powder cannons are simple to operate. Just ensure the cannons are pointed away from the face and up toward the sky. With your left hand keep a firm grip on the cannon above the horizontal arrows. Using your right hand, below the horizontal arrows, twist the base to the left to deploy the powder up to 20 feet in the air. Be sure to have your cameras ready!
What’s in a Gender Reveal Powder and Confetti Cannon?
I Love Sparklers offers two different types of gender reveal powder cannons for your consideration:
- Gender Reveal Powder Poppers – Our powder cannons come pre-filled with pink or blue cornstarch powder. Similar to cornstarch, this product is eco-friendly, non-toxic, and 100% biodegradable. It blows away in the air without staining clothes or skin. The powder is deployed using compressed air, so there is no smoke or fire involved.
- Gender Reveal Powder and Confetti Cannons – Similarly, a gender reveal powder and confetti cannon use compressed air to blast pink or blue powder, along with pieces of biodegradable paper, into the sky. This product is also eco-friendly, non-toxic, and biodegradable. Some people just like the slow-raining effect of the paper as it swirls down, as opposed to the cloud of powder that settles quicker.
What Size Powder Cannons and How Many?
Either product comes in one size, 16 inches. Gender reveal parties can be immediate family or extended to friends and coworkers, so that you may want two cannons for the expectant couple. You may want 10 cannons to produce a dramatic effect, or you can give every guest a cannon, so it’s fun for everyone. They are discreetly marked, so guests will be unable to tell which color will come out.
Are Gender Reveal Powder Poppers the Only Option?
We offer a number of US-made baby gender reveal party supplies, including gender reveal confetti cannons containing paper and/or streamers, as well as sporting equipment and burnout kits.
