How to use confetti as part of your event decorations
The tradition of throwing confetti at weddings as the happy couple leave the church or venue is longstanding, but incorporating confetti elsewhere in wedding parties and into other styles of events is becoming more and more popular as variety and choice increases. The options really are endless when it comes to confetti – you can mix and match different colours or choose two staple colours to complement your theme. Read on for a few creative ways to introduce confetti at your special event.
Sprinkled down the aisle
Petal confetti is available in a variety of styles and colours and makes a lovely addition to your grand entrance when sprinkled along the aisle either before your guests congregate or by your bridesmaids and flower girls as they enter the venue. Be sure to check ahead with your venue to confirm they’re happy for you to do this though.
There is so much capacity to be creative with the table decorations at your wedding reception or party venue. Confetti makes a great addition to any celebration and can be as subtle or as obvious as you’d like. Variations that contain glitter elements will look fantastic for an evening party with candles or disco lighting to celebrate a milestone birthday. More muted pastels could be better suited to an afternoon wedding breakfast where there is lots of natural lighting, a christening or even a baby shower. Our confetti can be purchased loose here.
Clear balloons filled with helium and confetti look amazing. Co-ordinate your event colour scheme with various bunches of balloons containing different varieties of coloured or shiny confetti to create a fun element which adds to the appearance of your venue. Younger guests will also have lots of fun playing with them as the party continues! This is a great idea for birthday parties, engagement parties, christenings and baby showers.
Throwing a baby shower and baby gender reveal party has become more and more popular in the last decade – they’re a perfect fit for using confetti in all shades of pink and blue. Gender reveals tend to be based around the cutting of a cake but why not surprise your guests with closed boxes of confetti containing the reveal colour of the impending new arrival? Everyone can open it at the same time to put your own individual stamp on the party.
