Top 5 Events for Using Bulk Confetti

Concert Confetti BulkWhenever big events are shown on TV, like the Super Bowl, Thanksgiving Day Parade, or political election victories, they often show massive whirlwinds of confetti flying across the screen. The use of bulk confetti is popular for these large events because it gives the most bang for the buck. Plus, event planners love how bulk loose confetti can bring so much color and excitement to every corner of a big space.

Here are the top 5 events for using bulk confetti:

Large Concerts

Production managers from New York to New Orleans to Nashville have used bulk confetti to greet and send off hundreds of the hottest music tours. Flutter FETTI has worked with bands and artists like Swedish House Mafia, Beyonce, Arcade Fire and Paul McCartney to shower their biggest fans in colorful bulk tissue and metallic confetti. For large concerts like these, most production managers prefer powerful confetti cannons and blowers like the X-6 Double Barrel Confetti Launcher to shoot off 2” x 40’ streamers 100’ into the air. Once the action begins, it’s easy to see exactly why they love it!

Sports Victories

The MLB, NCAA and NFL have all celebrated their biggest sports victories with huge bundles of Flutter FETTI and die-cut confetti stars. What makes this confetti so great for sports teams is that they can customize the colors so it matches the team uniforms or expresses school spirit. Whether outdoors or in a big indoor stadium, sports team event planners love using the 6” Continuous Flow Confetti Gerb Launcher to cover fans in confetti from head to toe!

Wedding Celebrations

Wedding event planners use bulk confetti all the time to mark the biggest moments of the day: the end of the ceremony, the first dance, and the reception exit. There are so many moments, but only all-white bulk tissue confetti or all-white bulk Corkscrews from Flutter FETTI has the ability to enhance the occasion. Flutter FETTI flies, flutters and floats (and Corkscrews spiral downward like whirly birds) 10x longer than any other confetti. It’s easy to clean up too so venues rarely mind using it!

Popular Parades

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and Mardi Gras krewes host some of the most famous floats in the world. So it is no surprise that these same parade pundits are masters at using bulk confetti to rev up the cheering crowds who line the streets to watch. Whether setup on a side stage or connected to a float, many use confetti blowers like the 3” Continuous Flow Confetti Gerb Launcher to shoot out colorful confetti and keep the energy high throughout the parade route!

School Graduations

Caps, gowns… and confetti? That’s right, bulk confetti (in school colors) has become very popular amongst high schools and colleges who want to send off their latest class of students with a big bang. It’s amazing to see the smiles on students’ faces when the diplomas are in hand and the confetti launch begins. It’s colorful, fun and a perfect way to say congratulations!

Graduate With Flying Colors Using School-Colored Confetti & Streamers

Graduation confettiMaroon and white, blue and yellow, red and black – these are just a few of the color combos that represent our school spirit.  What better time to show them off than at graduation?

As a new tradition, many schools are sending off their graduating class with confetti and streamers.  They customize the order to feature school colors and unleash it at just the right moment, creating a scene you have to see to believe:  endless rows of students jumping in the air throwing and catching the thousands of confetti pieces fluttering past their smiling faces!  If you’re ready to send off your graduating class in style, check out these three top ideas:

Hand-Flick Confetti Mania

When you’ve got hundreds or thousands of graduating students full of anticipation, it’s a good idea to get them all involved in the fun.  Order 1 or 2 hand-flick confetti sticks per person and hand them out to the students as they enter the ceremony location.  Before the ceremony comes to the close, inform the students how to use the hand-flick confetti sticks.  Then announce “Congratulations” through the microphone and watch the most spectacular cloud of school colors and confetti fly high into the sky!

The 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks and 18” Airless Launchers with tissue confetti are both extremely popular and allow for custom colors.  Plus, Flutter FETTI is biodegradable, flame retardant and easy to clean up so you can use it indoors or outdoors, making it ideal for any type of graduation location!

Big Bang of Streamers

When you want to make an impression on the students and their parents, big blasts from confetti cannons are guaranteed to please.  The X-6 Double Barrel Wireless Confetti Launcher is particularly powerful.  You can hang it from a high structure or set it on a stage floor in order to achieve the exact effect you want.  Load it with stadium-sized metallic streamers or tissue streamers and when the time is right, launch your students into their new lives post-graduation!

For schools with smaller budgets or classes, the Master Blaster Co2 Confetti Launcher is less expensive, more portable, and equally fun.  You can shoot speed load tubes of streamers up to 50’ in the air – a pretty amazing feat!  Plus, you can rent or purchase the confetti launcher giving you more flexibility to decide the ideal launcher for your new graduation tradition.

Ultimate Sequence of Confetti & Streamers

Do you want your students to remember this moment for the rest of their lives?  Is your school looking to send off its students with the most wild show possible?  Then a combination of confetti blowers and hand-flick sticks is the ultimate in theatrics.

Hook up at least two 3” or 6” Continuous Flow Confetti Gerb Launchers along the edge of the student seating and prepare to stuff it with multiple pounds of school-colored confetti.  In addition, hand each student an 18” Airless Launcher with Metallic Streamers and make sure they wait to use it until the end.  Finally, when the moment comes, unleash both the Gerbs and the airless launchers simultaneously and watch streamers and confetti take over the air above.  The excitement will bring chills down your spine and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a graduation celebration that’s better than that!

Congratulations to the new graduating class!

4 Fun Ways To Celebrate A High School Graduation Party

High School Graduation Confetti StreamersParents, faculty, and fellow students should be so proud.  Twelve years of studying and hard work has finally paid off and the high school seniors have graduated!  With diploma in hand, it’s time to toss up the caps and celebrate the big occasion.

A high school graduation party begins with the usual party ingredients – a local venue, a buffet table full of food, and a few delicious (non-alcoholic) drinks.  Then comes the hard part, the entertainment.  Do you want to take it to the next level of excitement?  Here are 4 fun ideas to make that high school graduation party extra special:

Hand Out Humorous Diplomas

With everyone dressed in their cap and gowns, it’s time to host another graduation ceremony.  However, this ceremony is less about academics and more about amusement.  Have a faux principal make short speeches for each student and hand out humorous diplomas with sayings like “Biggest Class Clown” or “Most Embarassing Moment In Gym Class” or “Teacher’s Pet”.  There are so many ideas and the point is to make it light and fun.  Once all the humorous diplomas have been delivered, yell “Congratulations Class” and revisit the ceremony celebration with caps tossed in the air and shots of confetti from a few 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks filled with tissue confetti in their school colors.  It’s an intimate and hysterical graduation celebration just the way teenagers would want it to be!

Capture Crazy Photo Memories

After many great years together, groups of close friends are finally splitting up to attend separate colleges, start new jobs, or explore the world.  That’s why a high school graduation party is the ideal place to capture pictures with friends.  Sure, you’re bound to take the standard posed and group shots, but not all of them have to be so humdrum.  Take a few photos in wacky poses, break out that ridiculous hat your friend used to wear, or build a human pyramid.  Atmosphere is just as important.  To capture the celebratory mood, shoot off 18” Airless launchers with Metallic Streamers in the background before snapping those crazy photos.  You can have the parents join in too, as long as they promise not to ruin the fun.  You’ll look back at these shots ten years from now and all those incredible memories will come rushing back!

Raffle Away College Gift Baskets

Are most of your friends headed off to college?  A great idea for your high school graduation party is to create gift baskets full of college supplies and then raffle them off to all the future freshmen in attendance.  Fill the baskets with everything from school supplies, delicious snacks (those ramen noodles are a lifeline!), stress balls, magazines, and DVDs.  Of course, don’t forget the 6” Flutter Flickers with tissue confetti, beauty supplies, and funny books on the best pick-up lines.  We all know that there’s a lot more to college than studying!

Show Off A Slideshow

Not only will you be taking photos that day, you’ll be adding those photos to a huge collection of other photos gathered over the years.  Instead of keeping them all locked in a box or stuck in cyberspace, a high school graduation party is the perfect place to gather them up and put together an incredible slideshow for all your guests.  Everyone will love reminiscing on all the great times from high school!   And now you’ll have Flutter FETTI in hand to make it even greater!

College Graduation Ceremony – A Time Of Caps, Claps, And Confetti!

College Graduation Confetti StreamersThey’ve been working hard for four years to hear the words, “Congratulations, Class of…” and it’s at that moment the students will know they have done it.  They’ll be college graduates!  The world will be their oyster and with it will come job opportunities, prestige, and tons of knowledge.

So when that moment comes at the college graduation ceremony, your school will want to be prepared.  As the college’s event planner (or a fellow student), you’ll want to join in the excitement with the entire student populace and send them off proudly.  Well, there are no better symbols of excitement than confetti and streamers!

Show Off Your School Colors

Here at Flutter FETTI®, we have an entire line of confetti ideal for your college graduation ceremony.  Best of all, it doesn’t matter which product you choose because you can customize confetti and streamers to match your school colors, whether it’s red and white or blue and gold.  It definitely puts the “WOW!” factor into your college graduation ceremony and gives every college graduate in attendance a reason to smile!

High In The Sky

A college graduation ceremony is more than just an acknowledgement of success – it’s a showcase of excellence.  The faculty and school deserve an equal amount of credit for paving the way and teaching the students how to excel in various areas of academia.  Parents also deserve a thank you for their support, both emotionally and monetarily.

So if you’re going to do a ceremony, do it right and embrace the thrill of college graduation!  Set up a few X-6 Double Barrel Wireless Confetti Launchers and shoot stadium-sized metallic streamers up to 100 feet in the air – perfect for that big announcement in a packed auditorium!  To cover the students in a cloud of confetti, use a couple of 3″ Continuous Flow Confetti Gerb Launchers.  It will make the moment extra memorable for all in attendance!

Confetti and streamers from Flutter FETTI are practical too.  For indoor events, streamers allow for easy cleanup.  For outdoor events, our tissue confetti is biodegradable and flame retardant, so the maintenance staff won’t have to fret.

Held In Their Hands

If your venue has low ceilings or your budget is small, don’t worry!  There are plenty of options for making Flutter FETTI a part of your college graduation ceremony.  A popular option is to purchase individual items and leave the hard work to the graduates.

For example, to coincide with the moment graduates throw up their caps, have them flick a few 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks filled with tissue confetti in their school colors.  Whereas the caps will fall fast to the ground, our confetti will float, flutter and fly through the air for a long time!

Streamers are also a very celebratory feature.  Have students shoot off a few 18” Airless Launchers with Metallic Streamers after the big announcement and watch the streamers glimmer as they glide up to 25 feet through the air!

Whichever ones you choose are bound to excite the crowd.  You can give these items to a select group of students or put them under the chairs in the first few rows.  Then let the celebration begin!
