Geelong Fireworks was one of the first companies to offer a range of products for Gender Reveals in Australia.
GENDER REVEAL PARTIES
A “Gender Reveal” party is where the couple forgoes finding out the gender during the ultrasound and instead has the technician place a card indicating the gender in a sealed envelope. The “reveal” takes place in the presence of friends and family. Guests “weigh in” with their predictions by wearing pink or blue, and no matter which “team” wins it’s always great fun all around.
Gender reveal parties are the kind of events that can be low-key or amped up depending on the crowd. Either way, finding out the gender of a new baby is a great reason to get together and celebrate! Decor is always straightforward–pink and blue everything, and you’re good to go!
There are a number of ways to announce the news at gender reveal parties.
If you order both colors, we put a small removable sticker on the bottom of the cannon.
Many couples who do not want to know if it’s a boy or a girl until the Gender Reveal themselves, get their Doctor to let a close friend know, who will be firing the cannons! Cannons are 30cm x 5cm.
Cannons are available with METALLIC (MYLAR) 50MM X 25MM STRIPS, TISSUE STRIPS, COLOUR POWDER – THIS IS NOT COLOUR SMOKE!!! For color smoke see below, ENVIROFETTI and METTALLIC/COLOUR POWDER MIX. Envirofetti —-This confetti is made from rice paper and food colouring. Upon contact with water, shrivels up and slowly melts away in a few days. Product is super thin giving the longest hang time, with a soft transparent appearance.
IF YOU WANT A SURPRISE REVEAL::
In the drop down menu under each product, there is a choice I WILL EMAIL YOU. Choose this option.
Then get your Doctor, family member or friend to email us with the color required. It is important to put the NAME and EMAIL address used to place the order in the email. We do not accept phone calls for this option.
A WORD ABOUT COLOUR POWDER CANNONS:
The color powder used in these cannons is ultra fine! Despite some claims on websites, a 100% leak free cannon is not yet available. The cannons are standard confetti cannons, holding colour powder. On shipping, the color powder can leak slightly at the join of the top/bottom part of the cannon. DO NOT be taken in by “we sell you the powder to fill the cannons yourself” to get around this. Unless you have experience in dealing with this powder you WILL make a mess!!
We wrap the cannons in gender neutral tissue paper. We suggest you get friend to unwrap them and wipe down the cannons just before use….yes, your friend will know the gender of course. We have had deliveries where no color at all is visible. We just want you to know what to expect. If you feel this may be an issue, order Shiny, Mylar (metallic), Tissue or Envirofetti.
GENDER REVEAL CANNONS …..
AVOID SHOOTING ANY METALLIC (MYLAR) CONFETTI ON OR AROUND ANY HIGH POWER ELECTRICAL CABLES. DO NOT POINT CANNONS AT ANYONE OR ANYTHING. CANNONS ARE SINGLE USE ONLY. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DISASSEMBLE, MODIFY OR REPAIR ANY PART OF THIS PRODUCT. KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN. THIS IS NOT A TOY! CANNONS CONTAIN COMPRESSED NON-FLAMMABLE GAS.. ROAD TRANSPORT ONLY. DO NOT TAKE ON AIRCRAFT!
ARE BIGGER CANNONS BETTER??
Unlike other suppliers who buy pre-filled cannons – with very little confetti inside, we fill ours here in Geelong – to your order requirements, using the maximum weight possible. We purchased a 100cm cannon from a well known seller and found it had 1/3 !!!! of the weight of confetti as ours. Plus ours fired further. We have maximum pressure in our cannons, from our supplier we have used for many years – ensuring consistent quality.
We suggest you buy more than one cannon – we have sold thousands over the years, with literally less than a handful of failures. We obviously cannot pretest cannons before use.
