It's a Party

It's a boy with blue confetti

Lidia’s sister is having a baby. She wants to have a party to announce the new baby’s sex. Lidia is the only one who knows the big secret.

She ordered confetti cannons with the appropriate color confetti. The free shipping was great. The cannons arrive fully loaded and ready to go. There are no markings on the outside showing what color confetti was inside.

The party was in full swing. Lidia passed out the cannons. The music was pumping and her sister was jumping up and down with excitement. Everyone started counting.

Then with a twist of the hand, the confetti burst into the air. It shot straight up and then began to slowly spread out and fall down on everyone. The suspense is over and everyone knows it's a boy.

Are You Gender Reveal Planning?

These parties have become very popular. There are many ways to announce the sex of your new baby to all your family and friends.

A beautiful shower of pink or blue confetti is a fun way to surprise all your family and friends. But, before you can plan your gender party surprise moment, someone has to find out the sex your new baby.

How do you find out the sex of your new baby while keeping it a surprise?

A lot of parents have the results sealed. When they go to the appointment for the scheduled ultrasound at about 20 weeks they talk with the sonographer beforehand. They tell them they do not want to know the sex of the baby. They ask for the results to be written down on a piece of paper and placed into an envelope.

Once you have your results in the envelope give it to a friend or relative. Tell them you are placing an order for confetti cannons for your baby’s reveal. Let them know we will be calling them to ask if it is a boy or girl.

You can place your order online and select the option to “keep it secret”. Then enter the person’s contact information into the box labeled “secret contact info”. We will contact them to find out the sex and load the cannons with the correct color of confetti. Don’t worry, there are no markings on the outside of the cannons to indicate the color.

Holding & twisting confetti cannon to fire

Hold & Twist to Fire

The cannons are ready to go right out of the box. Make sure the cannons are pointed up. The handle with the stripes should be on the bottom.

Hold the top part securely and simply twist the bottom. The confetti will burst into the air to announce the gender of your baby.

How Far Do They Shoot?

  • Small 12-inch shoots 15 feet
  • Large 24-inch shoots 25 feet

Is the Confetti Biodegradable?

Our tissue paper confetti is biodegradable and disappears over time. It is extremely thin and breaks down easily when exposed to the elements outside. The time for it to disappear will depend on the wind, sun, and rain. It could be a couple of days or a week or more but it will breakdown completely.

Do the Cannons Show the Color?

The cannons are completely generic on the outside. The outside is black with many different colors all over. If you order cannons in both colors they will be bagged. There will be a small pink or blue sticker on the outside of the bag.

When you know what the sex is you remove the cannons from the bag matching the color for the sex.

Use confetti cannons but don’t tell anyone about them. Bring them out during the party and just fire them into the air without warning to share the news.

Build the suspense even more by first shooting off a confetti cannon filled with multi-colored confetti. After that, you can shoot off the real cannons with pink or blue.

Fun Ideas

Our confetti cannon kit with 4 small cannons is a fun way to announce the sex. Each one is 12-inches long. Approximately 1200 pieces of confetti are packed into each one.

Choose light blue confetti cannons for a boy or pink confetti cannons for a girl.

You hold the barrel with your left hand and hold the bottom part with your right hand. Aim the barrel upward at a 45-degree angle.

When you are ready to pop the secret just twist the bottom handle to the left. The confetti instantly bursts out into the air. The confetti will fly 15-20 feet into the air spreading out wide as it floats and falls.


These confetti cannons are custom filled for each order. They are non-returnable.

Clean Up

Confetti is not that hard to clean up. A whisk or straw broom is the best to sweep the confetti into piles and pick it up. If you shoot it outside you can use a rake to make piles or use a shop vac.

The tissue paper is biodegradable and will break down over time.
