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.

Flutter FETTI is a HIT at Chicago’s Little League Parade!

Sometimes losing is winning and the pint-sized players from Chicago’s Jackie Robinson West Little League team showed us how this has never been truer! Despite South Korea taking the title with an 8-4 win in the Little League Championships, the 11-, 12-, and 13-year old players from Chicago played an incredible game and departed as America’s best Little League team.

So when Chicago decided to throw them a parade, whom did they ask to supply the confetti? Flutter FETTI, of course!!!

We were ecstatic to be a part of their recent homecoming parade. Thousands of locals came out to celebrate the occasion and each one was mesmerized by the blue and yellow tissue FETTI that went fluttering, floating and flying through the air!

While we weren’t there to join in the fun, the Chicago Tribune was kind enough to capture the best moments – including the moments full of FETTI! Check out gallery photos 5, 6 and 12 to see the colorful shots and contagious smiles!

And here’s a great video from Chicago’s WGN Radio showing our FETTI in action (fast forward to the last 20 seconds):

Congratulations again to the JWR Little Leaguers and go get ‘em next year!

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!

Back To School? Have One Last Hurrah This Summer!

Summer sports team confetti celebrationSummer is almost over (insert tears here) but that doesn’t mean it has to end with a fizzle.  Go back to school with a bang of confetti-filled fun!  Pool parties, farewell parties, team celebrations – there are plenty of ways to say goodbye with a satisfied smile on your face.   Flutter FETTI has lots of summer-ending ideas.  Here are just a few:

Camp Farewell Party

For so many children across the country, camp is home for the summer.  It’s the happy place they spend all their free time learning archery, paddling canoes, tackling obstacle courses, and hanging out with other kids they only see during these couple months.  So when it’s time to say goodbye, you want it to be a celebratory occasion, not a sad one.  Throw a farewell party full of campfire food (like hotdogs and s’mores), interactive games and cabin skits, and a nostalgic slideshow with highlights from the summer.  At the end of the event, as everyone prepares to give their final goodbyes, shoot off loads of tissue confetti from our 6” Continuous Flow Confetti Gerb Launcher.  Just imagine the colorful scene that unfolds before the campers’ and counselors’ eyes – it’s a perfect way to part ways!  Plus all our tissue confetti is biodegradable and fire retardant so you don’t have to fret about the campfires or campgrounds.

Sports Team Celebration

Summer is also a big time for children to sign up for competitive sports.  They can join baseball and lacrosse travel teams, attend tennis and swimming camps, or partake in other sports.  While it might be purely entertainment for the younger ones, older children are often engaged in intense competitions.  When the summer ends, it’s important to recognize the accomplishments of every team member.  Host a sports team celebration at the local pool, picnic area, or ball field where you can hand out trophies, certificates, and team photos.  If the team or an individual won a big event or tournament, you really want to highlight the achievement.  Light up the sky with 18” inch speed load tubes of multi-colored confetti from our Master Blaster Confetti Launcher.  It’s handheld and portable making it usable in any location and our confetti is biodegradable so it won’t ruin the outdoor scenery.

Neighborhood Pool Party or Barbecue

For a significant number of children, summer means hanging out with the neighborhood kids, heading to grandma’s beach house for the weekend, and spending time at the local or backyard pool.  It’s less of an organized schedule and more about scattered moments of fun.  So when school looms around the corner, the summer often slips away and it’s over before you know it.  Rather than ending with a lull, get together with neighbors and friends (and all their kids) for an end of the summer pool party or barbecue.  Break out the water guns, fly down a “slip and slide”, do a water balloon toss contest, and shower the winners in confetti from 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks.  There are so many exciting things you can do in your backyard, just make sure you doing something to end the summer on a high note!

Traditional Back To School Party

Although it’s not the most exciting party in the world, traditional back to school parties are quite popular.  After a long summer of playing outside, it’s a great way to get kids to put their thinking caps on again.  You can host the party at your house and invite over all their school friends.  Put little packs of pencils, pens, notepads, and other school supplies in their lunch boxes.  If there’s a birthday around the same time, combine the parties.  Play school games like Red Rover or make paper airplanes and fly them in a competition.  The traditional back to school party is a great way to reconnect with school friends while simultaneously preparing for the year ahead.

How do you celebrate summer before going back to school?  We’d love to hear from you as always!
