Now that universities, colleges, and high schools are back in session, the first major event of the year is on all the students’ and faculties’ minds: homecoming. The tradition of welcoming alumni back to their alma mater for a weekend of pigskin, parades, and parties runs deep in this nation.
Want to take your school’s joyous homecoming atmosphere to the next level? Incorporate tons of confetti and streamers – customized with your school colors – into your homecoming traditions and celebrations! Here are a few ideas from your experts at Flutter FETTI:
Step Up Your Pep Rallies
With all the cheering, fife and drums, pep rally gatherings have plenty of ear-splitting noise. However, they’re often lacking on exciting visual cues. This is your chance to give the eyes as much pleasure as the ears. When the cheerleaders finish their twirls and tumbles, blast off a huge burst of custom school-colored confetti from MEGA Blaster Launchers or Master Blaster Launchers. These portable, handheld devices are perfect for delivering precision shots of confetti into the most raucous sections of the student crowd!
Perfect Your Parades
With the grand marshal leading the way, your school homecoming parade is ready to go. Impressive class floats, boisterous marching bands, and the essential Homecoming Court weave through the crowds of students and alumni. If you’re on a float, you’ll want to do more than simply wave your hands about. Load it with tons of 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks and give the audience a splash of school color and pride. Everyone will go absolutely wild when your float drives by!
Crown The Homecoming King & Queen
Whether it’s at the pep rally, the school dance, or the football game, most schools take the time to crown a homecoming king and queen. It’s a beautiful moment only made more beautiful by a swirl of school-colored confetti. During the announcement, unleash a cloud of confetti from a Surprise Box Confetti Launcher. The relatively small box packs a big punch and will have everyone giddy with excitement!
Ramp Up Your Tailgates
The tailgate is more than just a place to socialize and have a cookout. It’s a place to get people pumped up for the gridiron game only a couple hours away. As the tents fill up and the crowd thickens, hand out custom-colored 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks. These hand flick tubes are easy to use and require NO Co2 to operate them. Simply flick them off during your school chants and songs or flick the tube of confetti into a line of game attendees. Watch smiles widen and eyes light up as school colors float, flutter, and fly through the air!
Go Crazy For Touchdowns
It’s a football game and your team is bound to score (hopefully lots of times). When it happens, you could idly sit back and clap or you could spread the joy of each victorious touchdown with a splash of Flutter FETTI. Fill your pockets with custom-colored 6” Flutter Flickers and flick them off after every big scoring moment. You’ll rile up the crowd, enhance the stadium atmosphere, and get everyone on their feet to cheer on the home team!
Better yet, when your team wins the game with a final dramatic touchdown, shoot off tons of tissue FETTI from 6” Continuous Flow Confetti Gerb Launchers. Watch it shoot up to 100 feet in the air and blanket the entire stadium and team. It’s a magical way to end the most amazing weekend of festivities!
Good luck and enjoy your university, college, or high school homecoming!
