5 Fairytale Wedding Must-Haves

Fairytale Wedding ConfettiFrom the moment you first heard the word “princess”, you’ve been dreaming of that fairytale wedding.  Now it’s finally here and you’re wondering if it’s possible to put your dreams into reality.  Well as long as you’ve got your prince, a fairytale wedding is certainly possible!

At Flutter FETTI, we help countless brides complete their fairytale weddings.  While everyone’s imagination is slightly different, we’ve got a quick list of five must-haves to be included:

The Castle

Castles are a must.  For those who take it literally, there are plenty of castles to host your fairytale wedding, from a majestic castle in Ireland to Cinderella’s Castle at Disney World.  But don’t feel like you have to take it so literally either.  As the saying goes, “my home is my castle”, so your fairytale wedding can happen at any location that inspires you whether it’s your favorite rustic barn, an urban sanctuary, or the backyard of your family home.

The Dress

Oh yes, the dress.  It’s the thing that makes you feel like a princess more than anything in the world.  You only get one chance to wear it and you want to make sure you dazzle, sparkle and shine!  The ball gown may be the epitome of a traditional princess dress, but the modern princess has much more flexibility.  So whether you want mermaid or sheath, halter or strapless, designer or bedazzled, find the dress that fits you and own it.  Because at the end of the day, it’s how YOU feel in the dress that makes you a princess, not what anyone else thinks.

The Transportation

Ok, so the castle and the dress can be a bit flexible, but the transportation deserves a traditional touch.  Nothing says princess like a horse-drawn carriage.  A limo just won’t cut it.  The horse-drawn carriage doesn’t have to be extravagant, but it should capture that timelessness, beauty and intrigue that resonates with all fairytale weddings.

The Magic

When it comes to decorations, ceremony program and reception style, that’s completely up to you as long as it upholds the magic of a fairytale wedding.  Magic comes in so many different forms, from the sparkle of crystal ware to the way you walk down the aisle towards your prince.  But some of the best magic comes in the form of wedding day surprises.  One of our favorites is using Tabletop Confetti Launchers to shoot a stunning array of confetti from elegant flower displays and watching it flutter, float and fly upon unsuspecting guests.  It’s powerful, beautiful and magical all at once – a perfect moment fit for a fairytale wedding!

The Memories

Last, but certainly not least, the best fairytale weddings capture memories that last a lifetime.  Not only do you need a good photographer and/or videographer, you need moments that stand out in everyone’s mind (especially yours).  One of the most popular wedding memory makers today is the use of confetti and streamers to celebrate the first dance, last dance or newlywed farewell.  Have the waiters hand out 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks, 6” Wedding Confetti Hand Flickers, or 18” Airless Launchers with Metallic Streamers to all your guests and let them participate in the celebration of you!  Watch the videos below to see this in action:

And there you have it: five must-haves and one perfect fairytale wedding!

 

Special Effects for Warm-Weather Holiday Lighting Ceremonies

The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting in New York City is the quintessential holiday lighting.  You get the big, beautiful pine tree dotted with countless twinkling lights, a chilly winter evening accompanied by a light snowfall, and a sea of people bundled in festive winter gear.

That scene is possible in New York City, but what about in warm-weather cities like Los Angeles, Atlanta, Dallas, and Tampa Bay?  You’ll have to use a lot more imagination – or employ a wave of awesome special effects.  With a little bit of planning, the latter is easily achievable and way more fun!

Take a look at what Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive did for their 2014 Holiday Lighting Ceremony:

Pretty amazing, right?  Your warm-weather city can have an equally exciting ceremony!  All you need is the following setup:

  • 6” Continuous Flow Gerb Confetti Launchers
  • White Tissue Corkscrews Confetti

This is the ultimate combination because it creates an effect that looks and feels like snow!  By hooking up multiple 6” Continuous Flow Gerb Confetti Launchers (the largest of the Gerbs) and feeding it all-white Corkscrews confetti, a blizzard of ‘snow confetti’ will fly up to 100’ in the air so everyone can enjoy a bit of ‘winter wonderland’, even on the warmest evening.  That’s how Beverly Hills does it and that’s how you can do it too!

Of course, you don’t have to be limited to just a ‘blizzard effect’.  There are plenty of other great special effect ideas for holiday lighting ceremonies, including:

  • 9-Barrel POD Confetti Launcher
  • Multi-colored Tissue Flutter FETTI Confetti

Maybe you want something more colorful?  Or timed beautifully with your ceremony program?  After all, the holidays down South are often far more unique than the traditional ones in the snowy North.  Rather than pretend you have snow, think about shooting off multi-colored tissue confetti to make your tree lighting ceremony more colorful than ever before!  And use the 9-Barrel POD Confetti Launcher to make precision-aimed shots pre-programmed to go off with your music or show!

Here’s another great special effects combination:

  • X-6 Double Barrel Launcher
  • Metallic Streamers

Confetti is just one type of spectacular special effect; streamers are another!  Just as the tree lights up, launch stadium-sized 2” x 40’ Metallic Streamers from the twin barrels of X-6 Double Barrel Launchers and give every person in attendance a thrilling chill down their spine.  The excitement, the beauty and the spectacle of streamers soaring over the newly lit tree create the perfect climax for such a big event!

So never fear warm-weather dwellers:  it’s possible to have a spectacular holiday lighting ceremony with the help of even more spectacular special effects!  To get started, shop our online store or talk to one of our famous confettiologists at (877) 321-1999.

 

5 Advantages to Renting Confetti Cannons and Blowers

Rent Confetti Cannons and BlowersYou love the way falling confetti jazzes up a concert event and how streamers soar through a sports stadium when your team is victorious! You love that effect, but are you willing to make the investment and buy confetti cannons and blowers?

Fortunately, there’s more than one option. At Flutter FETTI we rent confetti cannons and blowers so you can maximize your fun anytime, anywhere! Here are 5 advantages to renting:

1. Try before you buy

Every confetti cannon and confetti blower creates a slightly different special effect. The 3” Continuous Flow Gerb is a medium-sized confetti blower that shoots confetti up to 75’ high just like a volcano, while the X-6 Double Barrel Wireless Confetti Launcher shoots large streamers up to 100’ in the air like a precision-aimed cannon. Some are designed for large venues, while others are designed for small group gatherings. By renting, you can try before you buy and identify the exact confetti blowers and cannons you need for future events.

2. Great for one-off events

Are you hosting your company’s 50th anniversary celebration or throwing a huge wedding reception? For one-off events such as these, you may not necessarily want to invest in confetti cannons or blowers. Renting is significantly less expensive than buying, so you can go all out and rent the most spectacular confetti machines like the 9 Barrel “POD” Remote Control Confetti Launcher or a dozen Tabletop Confetti Launchers for your floral centerpieces. Now that one-off event is a very memorable event indeed!

3. Flexibility for annual events

Even annual events, like a concert series or city parade, can take advantage of renting as a way to change up the event. You can rent a confetti cannon one year, like the handheld Master Blaster Co2 Confetti Launcher, and then rent a confetti blower the next year, like a Continuous Flow ‘Baby’ Gerb. That way you can continually surprise your audience year after year!

4. Lower prices

Of course, lower price is one of the best reasons to rent rather than buy. Whether you have to remain within a specific budget or want to keep costs down, renting confetti cannons and blowers can save you money… which means more money to put towards colorful confetti and metallic streamers!

5. Put rental cost towards your purchase

And if in fact you fall in love with any of the confetti cannons or confetti blowers that you rent, Flutter FETTI gives you an added incentive to purchase. You can apply your recent rental fee toward your purchase, acting like an immediate discount on the full price of the equipment. It also makes you feel as if you had purchased the product all along!

The full Flutter FETTI rental list:

Confetti Cannons

  • Master Blaster Co2 Confetti Launcher (handheld)
  • Quarter Turn Co2 Confetti Launcher (handheld)
  • X-6 Double Barrel Confetti Launcher (wireless)

Celebrate Bowl Game Victories with Confetti Cannons and Blowers

Bowl Game Confetti CelebrationsYou know that moment when confetti rains down on coaches, players and fans after a hard-fought Bowl Game victory?  It’s a spectacular and magical moment and one that’s truly deserved after all the sleepless nights, grueling workouts, and media pressure teams endure.

To make that moment perfect for your impending bowl game victory, you need the right setup of confetti cannons and blowers on the field.  With football bowl season fast approaching, Flutter FETTI has what you need to get the job done and get it done quickly.

How to make it rain confetti

The quintessential post-victory stadium scene involves team-colored confetti raining down on the entire field.  To make this effect occur, you need multiple large and powerful confetti blowers.  By using 6” Continuous Flow Confetti Gerb Launchers, you can spew a pound of confetti every second up to 100 feet in the air – that’s 10 stories high!  See for yourself the awesome power of the Gerb:

How to shoot streamers skyward

If you’re looking for a special effect that packs more punch, the X-6 Double Barrel Wireless Confetti Launcher can shoot streamers skyward and help you celebrate an exciting bowl victory with all the pomp and circumstance you imagined.  With its dual 42”-long barrels and Co2 cylinders, this confetti cannon makes massive metallic streamers soar across a stadium like rocket ships!  Watch it in action at a recent sports game victory:

How to launch confetti like fireworks

For the most electric, awe-inspiring special effect, give your bowl victory a confetti celebration that’s as exciting as fireworks, but much safer.  The 9 Barrel POD Remote Control Confetti Launcher is a confetti cannon with 9 distinct barrels and a pre-programmable on-board microprocessor so you can setup the sequence and positioning of each shot just the way you want.  Launch confetti, streamers or both and leave your team and fans in absolute awe of your victorious celebration!

How to make a more intimate confetti moment

For a unique, intimate confetti moment that the football team’s hard-working coach is sure to love, use the Surprise Box and unleash a mini storm of confetti right beside and above him.  It’s just like pouring Gatorade over the coach’s head, only far less cold and way more colorful!  Plus, all the players and coaching staff can join in the fun and embrace the excitement of a bowl victory together.

Almost all of our confetti cannons and confetti blowers are available to rent or purchase.  For more information and more great special effect ideas for football bowl victories, contact our expert confettiologists at 877-321-1999.

5 Epic New Years Eve Party Themes and Ideas

New Years Eve confetti partyWhat?  The year is almost over?  That’s okay, because a new one is about to begin and in between the old and the new you squeeze in the most epic annual party:  New Years Eve!  Rather than do something ‘routine’ this year, mix it up with a creative theme party and give your nightclub, bar or home something to look forward to.  Here are 5 epic New Years Eve party themes and ideas you should consider:

1.  All White Party Theme

It’s a really simple theme: partygoers dress in fashionable all white attire.  Despite its simplicity, the end result is a party that displays elegance, sophistication and class.  The all white party theme is great for wintery weather when snow is in the air and eggnog cocktails are in style.  You can decorate tables with white cloths and flickering white candles and do a New Years Eve ball drop as white bulk confetti falls.  The best part of all is that you won’t find too many people getting sloppy or spilling drinks because there’s no way to hide it!

2.  80s Black Light Party Theme

Nothing says, “we’re heading into a new year” like stepping back in time, right? Retro 80s style clothing and endless black light are a fantastic way to make your nighttime party glow in the dark!  Pump fan favorite 80s music to start it off right and serve neutral-tone foods and drinks like Brie cheese, hummus, and martinis to give everything a supernatural glow.  When the clock strikes midnight, shoot off white Corkscrews confetti from a Red Blower and make the scene even eerier (as if that was possible)!

3.  Celebrity Party Theme

Roll out the red carpet for this one, literally.  A celebrity party theme is your moment to pull out all the stops and live like you’re in Hollywood for one night only.  Photographers, red carpets, Champagne glasses, lounge chairs and Top 40 music are just a few of the elements that make up this kind of New Years Eve party.  You can even take it one step further and get guests (or at least some of them) to dress up like famous celebrities.  It’s a unique way to host a classy event and get people a little bit more excited about an already awesome night!

4.  Casino Night Party Theme

Tired of the same old eating, drinking and dancing party?  A casino night theme adds a new layer of entertainment to your New Years Eve party.  It doesn’t take much, besides a few tables, games and dealers, to transform your space into a Monte Carlo-style casino.  And when someone wins the night’s prizes?  Don’t just smile and cheer – hit them with a huge wave of confetti from a handheld MEGA Blaster or a floor-based Surprise Box.  Most importantly, everyone’s a winner when the clock strikes midnight and your party’s rated as a huge success!

5.  Fiesta Party Theme

Everyone could use a little extra spice in life and this fiesta party theme makes it happen.  Forget the standard New Years Eve fare – this party comes with spicy nachos, sweet and salty margaritas, noise-making maracas, and plenty of piñatas filled with anything you’d like!  It’s colorful, loud, funky and proud and the perfect place to hand out multi-colored 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks for the midnight countdown.  This is one New Years Eve party theme that you won’t forget and nor will any of your guests!

New Years Eve will be here before you know it, so this was your fair warning along with some helpful ideas for the big night.  There are a ton of great New Years Eve theme concepts out there and all of them are made better with a flutter of Flutter FETTI confetti!  For assistance on your New Years Eve confetti plans, contact Ronee Holmes, the FETTI Lady.

 

A Fun Finale For School Holiday Shows: Streamers & Confetti!

Practically every school celebrates the end of the first semester with holiday shows, plays, musicals or concerts.  As teachers, you spend months preparing students for the big performance in front of peers, friends and family.  Even the cheeriest event can be quite stressful, so do you really want to end your show with a dud?

Streamers and confetti make for the perfect fun-filled finale!  End your school holiday show, play, musical or concert – and signal the end of all that stress – with a burst of color, shimmer and pizzazz!

Here are some ideas (and great photos) to inspire your holiday show finale:

Use Confetti Sticks

School Holiday Show Confetti - 14The most simple and straightforward confetti sticks are also the most spectacular idea for finales.  Why?  Because everyone can use them, from the smallest child to the biggest adult!  They’re easy to grip, shoot off with just a flick of the wrist, and create the most awe-inspiring moment of fluttering, floating and flying confetti!

The 6” Flutter Flickers are ideal for the younger ones, smaller venues, or the pockets of band members who don’t want to ruin the surprise ending!  The popular 14” Confetti Sticks are better for older students or groups who want to make a big impact in a big auditorium!  You can customize colors for either one (think red, green and white for a school Christmas play) and tissue FETTI is easy to clean up.

Use Airless Launchers with Streamers

School Holiday Show Streamers - 18If you want something that reaches further into the audience, and has a bit more shimmer too, then the 18” Airless Launchers with Metallic Streamers are sure to please.  You get two shots with each tube and all it takes is just a flick of the wrist (no Co2 required) to launch streamers 20’ to 25’ in the air!  In a really dark room with only a few bright spotlights, the shimmering effect of flying metallic strips is enough to get everyone on their feet for that standing ovation.

Some school holiday shows step it up a notch and do streamers and confetti all at once.  There are launchers stuffed with streamers and confetti that give you the best of both worlds, or you can give half the performing students confetti sticks and the other half airless launchers and let ‘em rip!

Use Confetti Cannons or Confetti Blowers

School Holiday Show Confetti LauncherIf your school budget allows you to splurge a bit, confetti cannons or confetti blowers can give you a whole lot more bang for your buck.  Rather than make every student work for the finale, cannons and blowers do the work for you so everyone can be mesmerized by the moment.  What’s that moment you ask?  The moment the entire auditorium is covered in a cloud of colorful confetti!

The Surprise Box is great because it can be surreptitiously rolled out on stage and only unleashed when the moment is right.  The 3” Gerbs produce an even bigger effect and shoot confetti up to 75’ high – and it’s always a hit with the audience.  For an all out blast, the X-6 Double Barrel Launchers create a moment on par with the most astonishing fireworks shows, yet all done with confetti.

Regardless of which one you choose, an awesome, fun-filled finale awaits your school holiday show, play, musical or concert.  That’s the magic of streamers and confetti; that’s the magic of Flutter FETTI!

Pageant Show Confetti – Victory Has Never Been Sweeter

Pageant show streamersThere’s a good chance you realize that pageant shows are the most competitive contests in the nation.  They’re a grueling mix of beauty, brains and talent and the women who compete put everything they’ve got into winning the show.  Would a little confetti go a long way in making a pageant victory extra sweet?  You bet it would!

The color, the emotion and the significance of confetti make it the perfect ending.  With the right products, your victory can be as spectacular as the professional pageant scenes shown on TV.  What type of confetti and confetti cannons are best?  We break it down for you.

Child Pageant Shows

Although child pageant shows are often described as ‘competitive’, you have to remember that they’re still just kids.  Regardless of what’s at stake, it’s important to create an atmosphere that is fun, fair, and collaborative.  When crowning the victor, all the children should get involved in the celebration to applaud everyone’s achievements.  Hand each child a pair of 6” Flutter Flickers and let them cover the stage – and each other – in colorful tissue FETTI.  It’s beautiful, simple and enjoyable for everyone!

Small Pageant Shows

When it comes to teen and adult pageants, the stage is literally an all-out competition for scholarships, prestige and the crown.  As the pageant committee, you’re usually in charge of the celebration and that means setting up and unleashing the victory confetti.  These two confetti launchers are perfect for smaller pageant shows:

  • 3” Continuous Flow Confetti Gerb Launcher – the smallest of the Gerbs packs a powerful punch and will have confetti floating gracefully over the whole crowd within seconds!  Set up Gerbs on both sides of the stage and aim them towards the crowning ceremony for a Hollywood moment on a small scale!
  • Surprise Box with Bulk Tissue Confetti – this tall box-shaped contraption launches confetti the second you open it, unleashing a surprising amount of colorful fun upon the winner.  All you have to do is set it up, roll it out on a stage and let ‘er rip!

Large Pageant Shows

Pomp and circumstance is expected at larger pageant shows for teens and adults, which is why larger confetti cannons are required.  When you want to go all out, there are two launchers that will get the celebration started right:

  • 6” Continuous Flow Confetti Gerb Launcher – the largest and most popular Gerb unleashes a monster wall of confetti up to 100’ high before fluttering and floating down upon the newly crowned pageant winner.  How much more beautiful could a scene get?
  • X-6 Double Barrel Wireless Launchers – the most exciting confetti cannon uses a dual-barrel concept to shoot confetti (or streamers) in the most dramatic fashion – it’s like the fireworks of the confetti world, but without the danger!  Aim high and watch the room come alive as the new pageant queen is crowned beneath a flurry of FETTI!

Holiday Pageant Show

Does your pageant fall on a national or seasonal holiday?  You can customize confetti colors to match the holiday theme (think of red, white and green tissue confetti for your Miss Christmas pageant show).  You can also purchase die-cut confetti in specific shapes, such as red, white and blue star-shaped confetti for July 4th pageant shows.  There are practically limitless options, so you can find the perfect confetti and streamers for your event.

Have you used Flutter FETTI for a recent celebration?  Submit your photos here and share it with the world!  For any questions or to plan your pageant show confetti, contact us and our team of confettiologists will be more than happy to assist.

 

Halloween Confetti Is Both Trick And Treat

Halloween Confetti Best CostumeTrick or treating shouldn’t be reserved for just kids.  Adults can have fun too and confetti can allow you to do both in style.  By bringing confetti into the holiday mix, you can make your Halloween party or event more astonishing, more unexpected, and more colorful than ever!  Check out some of our favorite Halloween confetti ideas:

Treat:  Halloween confetti at a nightclub event

From Las Vegas to New York City, the hottest nightclub parties at the end of October come in one form:  Halloween costume parties!  And what better way to celebrate the sexy costumes and seasonal theme than with a massive barrage of orange and black colored tissue confetti?

Using 6” Continuous Flow Confetti Gerb Launchers, launch pound after pound of custom-colored confetti as the DJ blares out a favorite Top 40 tune (or Michael Jackson’s Thriller).  Plus, stun the winners of the night’s costume contest with a gigantic wall of festive FETTI.  No matter when you make the magic happen, confetti from Flutter FETTI is sure to be the best Halloween treat!

Trick and treat:  Halloween confetti at a house party

Are you throwing a Halloween party at your home, but want to do something ‘different’?  Confetti is a great way to up the ante and get your costumed event etched into the memories of all your friends and neighbors.  You can do it with both a trick and a treat.

Start with a trick:  As guests arrive at the door, spook them with a bombardment of orange and black tissue confetti from 18” Airless Launchers.

End the night with a treat: give all your guests 18” Airless Launchers and as you crown the person with the best costume, toss all the confetti sticks at once.  There’s nothing more fun than embracing the Halloween spirit and using tons of confetti to do it!

Trick:  Halloween confetti for children trick-or-treating

The Halloween experience for children is typically far more treat than trick.  They ring doorbells, stick their hands into buckets of candy, and fill their pillowcases with countless sweets.  What about giving them a trick this year, in addition to their treat?

As soon as the costumed children say, “Trick or Treat”, offer your candy in one hand and flick a 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Stick with custom orange and black colors in the other!  If you want to take your trick to a higher level, rent a Surprise Box and launch die-cut apple leaves (in red and green colors) as soon as the kids arrive.  It’s a startlingly fun and colorful surprise that no one will expect, but everyone will love!

When it comes to Halloween confetti, will yours be trick or treat?  Contact one of our famous confettiologists to find out more or plan your colorful party favors!

 

New Product Feature: “Sleeves” of Confetti & Streamers

Confetti and Streamer SleevesOur Flutter FETTI products are specially designed to put the “WOW!” factor into your event and our new “sleeves” of confetti and streamers are no exception. In fact, the new sleeve products make it easy than ever to create magic in the air and give your guests, fans or friends a bewildering burst of color!

What are these “sleeves” exactly? Here’s everything you need to know about the latest creation from Flutter FETTI.

What is a sleeve of confetti and streamers?

Sleeves are a pre-determined set of confetti and streamers packaged inside a plastic bag. They are packaged in the style of a sleeve in order to simplify the usage of confetti and streamers with handheld Mega Blaster Co2 launcher products. Sleeves are filled with all different types of colorful confetti and streamers, including Sleeves of Metallic Streamers, Sleeves of Die-Cut Circles, Stars, Hearts and Rose Petals, and Sleeves of Tissue Flutter FETTI – our most famous confetti of all!

Why should I use a sleeve over bulk or loose confetti?

Sleeves come in pre-defined, rectangular packaging, typically 2” x 10”, and are great for launching short spurts of confetti from our 2” launcher barrel, one shot at a time. Bulk or loose confetti, on the other hand, typically comes in large, 1-lb. bags that are great for launching huge clouds of confetti over a longer period of time. In many ways, sleeves are fast and targeted while bulk or loose confetti is more dramatic and whimsical.

How do I use the sleeves?

The 2” wide polybags that make up a sleeve are designed to fit perfectly in the 2” diameter a portable hand-held Co2 launcher. Before loading the sleeve into the launcher, simply remove the rubber band holding the polybag shut and slide the enclosed products into the Mega Blaster barrel. Once loaded, cap it, tape it and screw in the 16-gram threaded Co2. Then prepare your firing position and let it rip!

Where do I use the sleeves?

Use the sleeves wherever you see fit, and especially where a Mega Blaster would be of use. Popular events include football games, concerts, race finish lines, weddings, corporate events, and nightclub parties. Confetti sleeves are ideal for events where there are tons of enthusiastic people in the crowd, while streamer sleeves are ideal for venues with generous, high ceilings to allow for the ultimate arc.

How do I buy sleeves?

You can buy a sleeve – or thirty – just like you would any other product on our website. Sift through the Co2 Confetti Launcher Products section on our homepage, find the sleeves that you want to be part of your special event, and then place your order. You can also contact one of our expert confettiologists and we’ll make sure you get the right sleeves to deliver the “WOW!” factor you deserve!
