You'll want to scroll through our many pictures of centerpieces to see what brides and grooms have done with diamond confetti to make their wedding tables stand out.

Makeup Brushes in Diamond Confetti

brush holderI love when customers send me pictures of their beautiful creations.  Jessica used the 2/3 carat pink and clear diamond confetti to fill her make-up brush holder and WOW! look how feminine and neat and classy it looks.  I just have to say-I am SO jealous of your brush collection!  I think this just looks so nice and neat and fun-not to mention organized.  So see, use your imagination and diamond confetti can make your world a better place too!  Thank you Jessica~

Fall Wedding

The autumns in Idaho are beautiful and this past weekend we had the pleasure of helping a friend decorate for her daughter's wedding. I want to share with you some of the pictures.  The brides colors were peach and cranberry and so she used cranberries in her vases with beautiful peach and white roses as centerpieces-and of course a light sprinkling of diamond confetti. We also used the 3/4 inch diamond garland between her stanchions and then used the diamond wrap (held together with uglue) to spruce up her chair bows.

Don't throw away the diamond confetti!!

Diamond Confetti can be used for several things besides being an elegant addition to centerpieces. After you are done using it as table décor you might consider some other uses such as wedding cake décor (it would have to be on a fake cake that won't be eaten of course), or as an additional to a piñata when it is full of surprises that don't include candy at a Quinceañera. You can also fill a Ball quart or pint jar to hold makeup brushes, pens (it would look really cool at a jewelry store), or in a vase full of flowers on your dining room table. One of our customers imbedded the diamonds into acrylic and made a really cool floor for the bottom of a champagne glass-shaped hot tub at a themed hotel. Another customer used diamond confetti to put in a tray that held seating assignments for the guests. Another customer put our small 4.5mm diamonds in with her wedding invitations. Diamond Confetti is heavy enough that you could fill a nice jar and use it as a paperweight.  It would also work great in homemade maracas or bean bags!  Think outside the box for what you might be able to do with diamond confetti.  We would love to see and hear about your ideas!

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.

The Princess Bride

When you are planning your wedding and reception, you want it to be memorable. It’s the day that every bride gets to be a princess and every groom a charming prince. You want for everything to be perfect, including the ways that the tables look at your reception. One thing you can use on your tables to give them the look that you want is diamond confetti.
Diamonds can be very symbolic for several occasions. One has been with weddings. They have traditionally been used as engagement rings. Diamonds have also been thought to represent purity and loyalty, things that fit very well with weddings.

What do I do with Diamond Wrap?

Val Wedding 021 (2)Diamond wrap, also called rhinestone wrap has lots of uses. We know of many but I was thrilled when one of our customers, JoAnn, responded to our picture request showing us how she used diamond wrap.  As you can see in this lovely photograph JoAnn sent, she used diamond wrap to bling up the chairs of a beautiful outdoor wedding in Texas.  The diamond wrap has 24 rows and is about 4.25 inches wide.  JoAnn cut the diamond wrap in half so she only used 12 rows per chair and then cut about a  5 inch length and glued it into a tube and pulled tulle through it.

Wedding Cake decor

cake with purple diamond confettiYour wedding cake can be one of the stand outs at your reception by adding just a little diamond confetti around the table.  Your guests will "ooh and aww" when they see the extra little bling around the cake.  And don't forget, diamond confetti is beautiful around wedding centerpieces as well.

Boring or Bling?

cake with purple cdc2Wedding accessories are as varied as the bride.  From your wedding venue, to your wedding invitations, it's all about expressing yourself on the best day of your life.  If you are a bride who enjoys a little bling, why not do what Sara did and sprinkle some diamond confetti in your favorite color around your wedding cake. Boring or bling....you decide!  

Diamond confetti adds bling again

Candles and diamond confettiI was so excited to get this beautiful picture from Debbie.  Her wedding decor was stunning before she added diamond confetti, but look how diamond confetti just adds that extra touch that made her tables look exquisite.  Here is the note Debbie include with her picture: "The pictures do not do it justice of how great an impact it made to the table decor.  The lighting bounced off the gems and made it look as if diamonds were scattered about.

So many uses!

I am constantly impressed by how our customers use diamond confetti in their décor. One of our customers puts them in invitations, (the 4.5mm diamond confetti would be best for this purpose), another uses them in the bottom of wine glasses and puts a cupcake over it. Still another used blue diamond confetti in her bathroom where she filled a small clear vase and then uses the diamond confetti to hold up her brushes.  What do you use diamond confetti for?

Do we carry "BIG" diamonds?

The biggest diamond confetti GemConfetti-USA carries is 14mm.  However, one of my favorite craft supply website carries the 1.5 inch size.  Save on Crafts has lots of great items to use for your wedding. You might check them out if you are looking for most anything wedding related.

How much diamond confetti do I need per table?

We are often asked how much diamond confetti one needs per table.  There are lots of answers here because there are a few variables that need to be considered.  Such as how big your tables are, how big your centerpieces are, and how much table scatter you want on your table, heavy or light?  If you want to "play" with the diamond confetti, also known as acrylic diamonds and the above mentioned table scatter, here's an idea;  order a few of our 99¢ samples in your various colors-set up your wedding centerpiece or event centerpiece on your dining room table or a table similar in size to the one your guests will be setting at.
