Gentler, Quieter Festivities: Celebrate with Confetti

Gentler, Quieter Festivities: Celebrate with Confetti

Tess Wilson
Jul 5, 2011

Did we all (and especially our poor, worried puppies) survive the crash-bang festivities of Independence Day? If you're still in the mood to see bits of color float through the air, without the attendant sound of gunfire (I always assume) all night, confetti is just what the doctor ordered…

• I love the festive yet muted colors of Brittany Bass' "Exit" print, and the fact that it's like there's an artfully thrown handful of confetti on your wall, all the time. Mint has great photos of Brittany installing the original piece on a gallery wall!

• Confetti garland? It's like confetti frozen in time, that you never have to sweep up! (Though sweeping up confetti is perhaps the best of all household chores, ever.) KristinaMarie sells her handmade confetti garland in every perfect color, all wrapped up on wooden spools. These would be so handy to have for party emergencies.

• Next we have two brilliantly simple ideas from tokketok: The Confetti Dip and Tiny Party Streamers. Between these two projects, I feel like my gift-wrap and party-decor needs are taken care of for the forseeable future.

• Finally, just to tease you, there's "punching party: pile of acrylic paint confetti punched at punching party" by Leah Rosenberg. Leah is a dear friend so I was thrilled to see her work recently featured on Oh Happy Day. And don't miss the photo of the punching party itself, or the sheets of paint post-punch!
