Gender reveal parties have become more elaborate in recent years and many have ended in devastating ways, including wildfires and explosions. Here are a few products believed to be safe that you can use for your own party.

It seems that some gender reveal parties have been causing more harm than good.

In April 2017, a gender reveal party went horribly wrong when a couple invited their closest friends to watch them shoot a rifle that would reveal a blue cloud of smoke, cluing to loved ones that the couple would be having a baby boy. But instead, the target exploded and caused a fire that spanned over 45,000 acres of land and causes nearly $8 million in damages.

In New Hampshire, an explosion at a gender reveal party in April raised alarm for the party goers. Then, earlier this year in Michigan, a 26-year-old man was killed at a baby shower when he was struck with an explosive during the celebration. 

We’ve compiled a list of gender party supply ideas so that you can celebrate your newborn by going back to the basics. Here are some festive ideas:
