As you may have seen a few weeks ago we posted a story on a product we loved....a confetti canon, to read more click here.
Trying to make your confetti moment special is often difficult but we have a couple of suggestions you may love.
The key to all of these ideas is that you can make them or put them together yourself.
One of the most beautiful choices at the moment is to use natura; flower petals. All you need to do is to try and colour masses of flowers - keep all petals that are not browning you can then hand the flowers upside down in a dry sunny place., alternatively lay between newspaper and place in heavy books to press the petals completely dry of all its moisture. This choice is also a loved option by venues as if you have your pictures of the confetti throw outside this type will decompose naturally - it's biodegradable.
If you are having a funky colourful wedding why not make your own.. Incredibly simply all you need to do if take some bright or metallic thin tissue or crape paper and cut into tiny suqears as shown above. You can then choose how you want to store them for your guests - you can choose anything from paper cones to chemistry based test tubes!
If you have more time you could actually cuts shapped confetti. The easiest way to do this is to buy some punch stamps from a craft supplier - trust me you will save yourself so much time if you invest in these. Try deciding what works for you and your story. try and think of something that speaks to you and can tell your theme or story easily. Take the swallow confetti above. Swallows carry out one of the longest migration routes of all animals and if you are globe trotters and love exploring new countries why not use maps as your paper - it can represent your journy together. Below a simple heart stamp has been used and the paper source is comprised of sheet music and dictionary extracts - the sources use classic love songs and definitons.
The final option is to give your guests some control on the day. Have you considered setting up a confetti bar? it's really fun and interactive. This time just buy lots of confetti and sequins and store in glass vases. Again choose your own receptical and there you have it, guaranteed fun and glam instantly!
So when it comes to confetti throw caution to wind and get making!
