Diamond Confetti as Vase Filler

Diamond confetti as a vase filler looks stunning on your wedding tables but can be a stun to your budget if you need several cups for each centerpiece.  We've often told customers you can get the same elegant look for 1/2 the cost if you "dummy" up the middle of each vase with something much less expensive or better yet, free.  Why not wrap foil around rocks or floral foam if you are using flowers with stems. Simply put your "dummy" in the vase first and then pour the diamond confetti around the dummy.

Table Cloths


As a wedding décor planner, I used to worry about every little detail of decorating for wedding receptions. I bought several colors of quality table cloths and would try to match the bride’s colors perfectly. Then one day I realized that what I really needed were just two colors of tablecloths-white and cream. The color could be added by using an overlay or a runner. This not only cut down on the money I was spending on cloths but also on the storage space I needed. The rule that usually worked was if the bride wore a white dress we used white tablecloths and if she wore a cream colored dress, most of the time her color scheme worked best with our cream colored cloths.

You too can be a photographer

I want to let brides and event planners in on a little secret. You can take awesome pictures with a phone!  I recently bought an i-phone 6s specifically because I heard the camera was amazing.  I am finding that taking pictures with my phone turn out better than with my expensive Canon. I've never been that great at running the Canon but I believe the the picture-taking process on the i-phone has been "dumbed down" for users like me.  Check out this recent picture of sapphire blue diamond confetti and I think you will agree it's a great picture.  So dig out your phones and start shooting your friend's wedding and you might just be able frame a nice little present for the bride and groom. 

Party Planners

Party Planners listen up!  October is a big month for weddings and if you want to be the party planner that gets rave reviews, you have to make your event stand out.  Of course, we all know that a beautiful venue is just the beginning.  You need nice chairs, a focal point like a backdrop and most of all beautiful tables and centerpieces. Fresh flowers never go out of style and a light sprinkling of diamond confetti is the final touch that will make your guests say "Wow".

Size Matters!

When ordering diamond confetti, please take a minute to pull out your ruler and see how big the gems actually are. We don't want anyone disappointed with the size of the diamonds and even though 4 carats (or 10mm) might look mighty fine on your finger, the diamond actually looks smaller when it is not in a setting. We also list a pretty good description under "SIZE INFORMATION" where we compare the different sizes to a familiar item. Diamond confetti by nature is small with some of the largest pieces being just about the size of a dime. After that, you really should be calling it "large diamonds". So save yourself money, time and disappointment by either ordering a sample of the diamond confetti or dare, I say,  checking it out in a hobby store so you know what you are buying. Happy decorating!

How much diamond confetti do I need per table?

With regard to how much diamond confetti you might want to put on each wedding reception table, we tell our customers that 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup is about the right amount-BUT it depends on how big your tables are.  If you are using bistro tables and just want a little bling around your small centerpiece, maybe a couple of teaspoons is enough.  If you have bigger centerpieces on bigger tables-say 60" rounds, then you would want about 1/3 of a cup of diamond confetti.  You could play with some unpopped popcorn or dried beans and see what you think prior to buying the diamond confetti.

Using diamond confetti as a vase filler hack

Diamond Confetti makes a great vase filler.  It makes for a beautiful base to your centerpieces.  However, it can be a bit expensive if you want to fill 25 vases or even 10 vases for that matter.  So how do you achieve the look without breaking the bank?  We've long been suggesting to our customers that they "dummy" up the middle of their vases with such things as rocks wrapped in foil, floral foam wrapped in foil or if the vase has a really big base you could even use cans of beans or whatever, with the labels removed.

Add sparkle to your wedding decorations

Planning a celebration, party, wedding, or other large event can be a very fun experience. But with all the details involved, it is easy to see why so many people become overwhelmed during the process. Fortunately, the decorating process does not have to be a challenge. There are many unique elements which can be used to add glitz, glitter, and glam to any type of event and diamond confetti or gem confetti is being used more and more.

Many people are choosing diamond confetti for the wedding reception party.

Keeping within a budget

Whether you are getting married or planning a corporate event, most likely you have been given a budget to work with.  Sometimes it seems impossible to pull off a big party on what might seem like a much smaller amount of money than we think need.  What I've learned through the years is there are some simple ways to cut costs.  One of my favorite things is to repurpose items.  For instance, would you really need to go and buy 20 new vases at $10 each,  when a quick trip to a thrift store or two might yield you vases for $1 each (there you go we just saved $180!

Big or small centerpieces?

I recently attended a wedding reception that had different types and sizes of centerpieces on the tables.  The table my friends and I chose had a beautiful centerpiece on it but as soon as we sat down and started talking to each other we realized we couldn’t see each other’s faces during our conversations. Since there were very few guests in the reception hall at that time, I bravely “swapped” centerpieces with another table.  Hopefully no one noticed my little dirty deed.  The guests around my table were now able to have a lovely conversation and make eye contact while talking.

Wedding flowers and diamond confetti

Wedding flowers, a wedding dress, a diamond ring and diamond confetti-what do all of these have in common?  They will all add to the beauty and elegance of your wedding décor.  Party planners everywhere know the importance of making your wedding reception beautiful because this is your one special day when it is all about you and making everything perfect. But fresh flowers, a beautiful dress and that stunning diamond ring are only half of your décor.  Keep in mind that the guests all dressed up are decorations too.

Love is in the air!

Congratulations to all the newly engaged couples.  Although snow seems to have found itself even in the deep south this year, spring will come and those wedding bells will begin to ring.  If you are planning on doing some of your own decorating for your dream wedding, you'll want to consider diamond confetti.  Diamond confetti adds that extra touch of elegance and bling and makes your centerpieces stand out.  Mirrors under your centerpieces can add to the luster and beauty of the diamond confetti and actually make your centerpieces look larger.

Acrylic Diamond Confetti is not edible!

The other day someone called our office and said they wanted to sprinkle diamond confetti on cupcakes.  Uhhh, please STOP!  Diamond confetti is not edible and should only be used for decorating purposes. There are some places out there that sell "edible" diamonds (can they really be that good??) but please make sure they don't contain acrylic!
However, our diamond confetti is perfect for scattering around centerpieces or filling vases. So when you go to buy acrylic gems online, just make sure they are designed for your use.

Don't forget the diamond confetti

Diamond confetti has become a very popular addition to centerpieces for many different kinds of events.  While of course, it can be used to add that extra touch of elegance to a wedding table or to accentuate a diamond and denim theme at your local fundraiser, it can be used for any event where you want to make your tables "pop".  If you think your centerpiece needs "something else", order a sample of diamond confetti and see what it does for your table. You won't be disappointed!

If bling is your thing

Spring is in the air and wedding planning season is in full bloom.  We've had so many people call us and order in the last few weeks, it's good to know there is lots of fun partying ahead.  If you are looking for just that perfect little touch of bling, diamond confetti is the way to go.  You don't need a lot, maybe 1/4-1/3 cup per table, but you'll be amazed at how much elegance and fun diamond confetti will add to your centerpieces.  If you're not sure, just order a sample or two and "play" with it on your dining room table.   We think you'll agree, it will add just that perfect little touch.  Happy planning!
