When it comes to party decorations I always like to try and find new ways to incorporate the decorations into the event. One thing I love buying (even though it can sometimes be a pain to clean up) is confetti. Now when you think confetti you probably think of the traditional sparkly confetti that you will find scattered on tables and usually sticks to everything, but let me just stop you there. There are so many more ways to use confetti, especially when it comes to parties and events. I have put together some of my favorite ways that you can reinvent the use of party confetti. Have fun decorating!!

Confetti Table Runner
This might be one of the easiest decorating tricks ever and it also combines the trending ombre style. All you need is a stack of paper in the colors you want and a circle punch. Punch out as many confetti circles as you need and then arrange in a fun design on your table. Post event you can stash these cutouts in a ziplock baggie for another time.
Confetti Glasses
I found two great ways to incorporate the confetti decoration into your glassware and both are pretty easy to do. To create the gold confetti mugs all you need is a sharpie (the example below was created using a metallic gold one) and potentially a stencil. Draw your confetti dots onto the glassware, bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and then let cool in the oven. I have also seen this done on plates and other ceramics. It is such a simple way to dress up your china for an event.

The second confetti cup idea, from My Two Butterflies, was inspired by Anthropologie’s Settled Confetti glassware and is a much more affordable price. To make the multi-colored confetti cups you will need glasses (you can pick up some cheap ones at a local thrift store), acrylic paint and a paint brush. Using your paint brush create your confetti pattern on the outside of the glass. Once done put your glasses in a cold oven, turn to 350 degrees and bake for 30 minutes. Instead of using a sealant this will create the seal you need and prevent the paint from chipping off. Additional tip: If the glasses are a little dusty it is best to clean them with rubbing alcohol on the outside before painting.
Confetti Balloons
This is one party idea that I have had pinned for quite a while and inspired this post. These confetti balloons were created for a sprinkles themed birthday party by Kojo Designs. You can find the complete tutorial with step-by-step picture instructions on how to make these balloons here. Basically you take confetti, put it into the balloon, inflate with helium and then you have a creative confetti party decoration!
Confetti Napkins
And the last confetti party decoration idea I have to share with you are these adorable confetti napkins from blogger, Design Mom. The linen napkins were handmade by the blogger for this confetti craft, but you could also buy plain napkins for those that may be sewing challenged (like myself). Once you have your napkins adding the confetti is pretty easy. Using the same method as the gold confetti glasses you just need paint, a dot stencil and a paint brush to create your confetti design. Let the napkins dry overnight and then you have festive confetti napkins to use at all your events!
I think all this confetti means it is party time!! Which new use of confetti do you like the most? Do you have another great idea on how to incorporate confetti into an event? Let me know in the comments section below!
