Nothing says "Let's celebrate" like candy confetti, especially when it's overflowing from a swanky Champagne coupe and cascading down the side of a pure white fondant-wrapped cake. It's a spontaneous statement that couldn't be easier to make.

Bursting with peonies and roses, this vibrant magenta bouquet gets the party started before the first cork is popped. It makes a bold statement, so stick to natural makeup -- and score extra points by working in an accessory, such as these multi-hued diamond earrings, that nods to the confetti theme.
With its perfectly round silhouette, the circle is as fundamental to graphic design as flour is to cake batter. Enter our spirited stationery collection, which puts confetti on display in all its roly-poly glory. To make the motif your own, download the free clip art here, hit print, cut, and mail (in navy envelopes lined in hot pink, of course). The celebration will begin at the moment your loved ones open their mail.
What appears to be colorful confetti at first glance is actually a jaunty take on place cards. Tossed out on a table, a smattering of color-coordinated circles announces guests' names and table numbers with flair. To ensure that your palette is as elegant as it is effervescent, make sure to mix in muted shades with neon brights. Or just follow our lead and temper tangerine and shocking pink with moody midnight blue, gold, and bright white.
Late-night snacks can feel as tired as the wedding guests who devour them. These doughnut holes, however, are a wake-up call in the form of a sugar rush. Simply ask your caterer to whip up a big batch in a variety of sugar-coated hues, and serve them to your (grateful) guests in metallic gold paper cones.
Shaken, not stirred? Nope -- in the case of these homemade liqueur lollipops, the catchphrase is "stirred, not sucked." Meant to be swirled into a glass of Champagne until they dissolve and infuse the bubbly with flavor, these playful pops (in black currant, raspberry, and peach) are a grown-ups-only take on the tried-and-true childhood treat.
Cocktail hour has never looked so good! Give lemon peel a backseat and punch up your signature drinks with candy garnishes that match your palette (in both color and theme) instead. Not only are the splashy swizzles fun to look at, but the jolt of sugary flavor they leave behind turns standard-issue libations into bona fide guilty pleasures.
