A glitzy, highly publicized grand opening is vital for businesses that want to advertise a new building or location. A successful and exciting event can get the word out, bring in new customers, drive up revenue, and boost employee morale, especially in the crucial first year.
Confetti and streamers are the perfect way to create the excitement level that you need at a grand opening. We’ve got 3 ideas that utilize Flutter FETTI’s top products to make your opening day one for the record books!
1. Create a more colorful ribbon-cutting ceremony
The ribbon-cutting ceremony is a time-honored tradition that signals the opening of a new building or business. It’s common to see guest celebrities, local politicians and the owner’s family crowded around a red ribbon separating the general public from the brand new entity. Despite the build-up, the actual cutting is often anticlimactic as the ribbon falls to the ground with a measly clap and a few snapshots.
It’s time to change all that and make the ribbon-cutting ceremony more colorful, more spectacular, and full of spine-tingling awe! When the ribbon is cut, shoot off an endless array of confetti and streamers and mark the day with the pomp and circumstance it deserves.
For a small building or local business, use 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks to make the magic happen. Give everyone a hand-flick stick and simultaneously toss confetti in the air the moment the ribbon is cut. For a large building or business, shoot giant streamers from multiple X-6 Double Barrel Wireless Confetti Launchers for the most dramatic effect.
For an outdoor event, put portable handheld Master Blaster launchers in the hands of capable volunteers who can shoot confetti products and position them to fly in the right direction with the wind! Just remember to invite the media to capture all the amazing photos and broadcast your ‘grand’ grand opening to the world.
2. Give your first customers a moment to remember
Sometimes a grand opening is just as exciting for customers as it is for owners. While opening the door signals the start of business, it doesn’t leave a lasting impression on your first and most fervid customers.
Here’s a better idea. The moment the door opens, shower your first customers in multi-colored confetti and streamers! From the outside, use a Mega Blaster Launcher to shoot sleeves of tissue and metallic FETTI all over the front entrance. From the inside, have employees use 14” Corkscrews Confetti Sticks and create a welcoming and wild cloud of confetti.
What makes Flutter FETTI confetti and streamers extra special is that they’re easy to clean up. So you can quickly sweep away all the colorful tissue paper and head back to operating business as usual.
3. A little local flair with a confetti finale
One of the best ways to encourage a successful grand opening is to bring a local favorite on board to promote the event. A local rock band or high school marching band is a great way to attract and entertain the crowd, while showing your commitment to the community.
The only thing that could make the concert better is a merger with a visually stunning prop like confetti. As the band nears the end of their show and the announcement to inauguration is apparent, celebrate with a huge blast of confetti and streamers. Given the greatness of the musical guest, only tissue FETTi shot out from a 6” Continuous Flow Confetti Gerb Launcher would do the day justice. The massive wall of FETTI that falls upon the band and the audience will make your grand opening the most spectacular one yet!
