Birthdays parties are the perfect excuse to break from the mold of everyday life and embrace the excitement of party favors, ‘tchotchkes’, and nonsensical decorations. They’re joyous occasions and what’s more joyous than colorful confetti? Here are some great confetti ideas to use for an upcoming birthday party:
Congratulate with 3-in-1 confetti and swisher sticks
Is the birthday girl about to finish her first pony ride? Is the birthday boy rappelling down the rock wall after making it to the top? Congratulate them with a blast of multi-colored confetti using 9″ Happy Birthday Confetti and Swisher Sticks. Then continue using the built-in noisemaker and metallic pom-poms to cheer them on again and again. It’s 3-in-1 fun that will make definitely this birthday a day to remember!
Create a memorable party favor to take home
At many older kids’ birthday parties, guests leave the event with goodie bags in hand. Most are filled with candy that barely makes it back to the house. Well here’s a new idea that will surely last a long time: customized 9” Hand-Flick Confetti Launchers! You can send in an image (6 1/2″ wide by 9 1/2″ long) with your order and it will be wrapped around the tube. Use a picture of the birthday girl or boy, a name and the date of the event to create a memorable keepsake that will remind everyone of all the fun times!
Surprise with hand-flick confetti sticks
Surprise birthdays are so much fun, especially when you bring confetti and streamers into the mix. Rather than stand behind couches waiting to simply jump up and scream, line up guests with confetti sticks in hand and make it rain on the unsuspecting birthday person! The best hand-flick confetti stick options are 6” Flutter Flickers (perfect for low ceilings, small spaces and apartments), 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks (great for higher ceilings, larger spaces and houses), and 18” Airless Launchers with Metallic Streamers (easy cleanup for large indoor or outdoor surprises). Plus, you can customize confetti to be in the birthday person’s favorite colors. The commotion and wide-eyed expression that result from this surprise make confetti one of the best ideas for surprise birthday parties.
