There’s something about confetti that just instantly makes me hear “HOORAY!” So it’s not wonder these tiny little bits of fun make a bit impact at any party. From DIY confetti balloons to party treats sprinkled with colorful fun, here are a few ideas for taking your confetti well beyond the table!

1. Confetti Birthday Printables Collection – via Hostess INK

One of the newest additions to our INK store (or as we like to call it, “Fresh INK”) is this Confetti Birthday Collection. We’re loving how versatile this look is — and we can also customize it for a bridal shower, graduation party, or any occasion that calls for a little extra confetti!

2. Confetti Cake Pops via Sweet Little Details

There are lots of ways to tie sprinkles into a party’s desserts, but I like the simplicity of these cake pops (plus the larger sprinkles seem more like confetti to me). They would be super simple to make and even easier to eat. ;)

3. Confetti Macarons via HWTM

Everyone loves funfetti cake, so why not take it up a notch for your party guests and offer them some funfetti macarons!? With a full recipe and step by step instruction, Tessa Huff (baker extraordinaire) makes macaron-making seem like a cake walk!

4. Confetti Sprinkles Rimmed Drinks via Sweet Style blog

Edible confetti is the best kind of confetti, don’t you agree? Here, a sprinkled rim makes party drinks even more celebratory! Make them adult-friendly by adding sprinkles or sanding sugar on cocktail glasses (wouldn’t that make a cute martini?!)

5. Polka Dotted Wooden Cutleryvia Red Carousel

These adorable wooden forks & spoons would go perfectly with all of your confetti themed treats! You can buy them here for a quick shortcut, or make them yourself with a plain cutlery, a pencil erase & different colored stamp pads!

6. Confetti Crown via Best Friends for Frosting

Add some sparkle to your outfit with these adorable crowns! I actually originally thought they were headbands and still think that would be a really cute idea as well. These would be a cinch to make and would be perfect for a makeover/dress-up station.

7. DIY Tuxedo Confetti Poppers via HWTM

We shared these back in Oscar Season as a fun way to make your Oscars Viewing Party POP (pun intended). The step by step instructions are super helpful if you’re looking to make your own poppers, and they can be customized with any type of confetti and outside embellishments that you’d like!

8. Doily Confetti Holders via Daisy and Tea

If you’ve decided to not go the confetti popper route and just have your confetti loosey-goosey, these doily cones are the perfect quick fix (just make sure your confetti is large enough where it doesn’t fall through the holes).

9. Confetti Balloons via bonbon balloons

Large balloons are all the rage right now, and I’ve seen lots filled with round confetti, but these clear confetti balloons are extra special because you can send them (fully blown up) as a gift! They just float right out of the box when you open it. Beautiful hand-cut confetti and a confetti garland string make these over the top adorable.

10. Mini Confetti Bottle Party Favors – via Sugar & Cloth

For the ultimate party send-off, arm your guests with these little jars! These would be so stinkin’ cute to shower over the bride and groom at a wedding, or as the ultimate surprise at a surprise birthday party! Once empty, these are still such cute favors because who doesn’t love a good mini bottle?!
