5 Secrets to More Color at Home

The Ultimate Guide to Confetti


A Guide to the Best Confetti |

I happen to think confetti is appropriate for every occasion so we buy our fair share of it! With New Year’s Eve right around the corner, I thought it’d be fun to create an Ultimate Guide to Confetti to share some of our most favorite sources and kinds! Because if you don’t have confetti in your every day, you just HAVE to have it at NYE!

Confetti comes in approximately one billion shapes, sizes and colors so I broke down my faves to share what I’d use each one for!

First up, we’ve got confetti that is precisely cut into shapes like circles, squares and diamonds, “die cut” style. I think this style works particularly great for stuffing inside a balloon or sprinkling on a table. It definitely has a more clean and modern feel, so it’s great for parties that have that same aesthetic. It also comes in larger shapes so it looks great in photos when you toss it.

Next up, metallic!! This is the obvious go-to for New Year’s! I use metallic confetti to “dip” things in a lot. (See below!) Fair warning: This is the hardest confetti to pick up off the floor, so if you are impatient, I’d recommend keeping this for DIYs, gift packaging or table decor. You’ve been warned! 😉

Last is the classic hand cut confetti. I personally find this confetti the easiest to clean up. That means it’s great for stuffing confetti poppers with or tossing in a photo booth. This style also has the most “volume” so a little goes a long(er) way.

Do you have a confetti fave!? I think mine is a toss up between the neon rainbow scented confetti, the make it rain confetti and the classic confetti (you can find TONS of this in the LA piñata disctric if you’re local!). I guess I’m a hand cut confetti gal at heart!
