How To Choose Your Perfect Wedding Confetti From Our Online Confetti Bar

Updated: May 8, 2021

The Confetti Bar® is a magical place where you can create a confetti mix as personal and unique as your wedding day.

Ordering from our online confetti bar is super simple.

The Confetti Bar is just like a fancy Gin Bar - but instead of Gin, it's filled with CONFETTI!

You can make your order at the bar just like you would if you were out with your friends - Shots, Doubles, even a Pitcher!

At The Confetti Bar we have each single colour of confetti listed individually so you can pick your favourite colours to mix together. Have a browse on the main Confetti Bar page to see the entire colour range and make a little note of your favourites.

Let's say that your wedding colour scheme is ivory, pink and green. First, let's have a cheeky look at the selection of white and ivory confetti...

White Confetti | Snow Confetti | Petal Confetti

Make a note of your favourite. I think I like the Ivory Lyo Carnation and I quite like the look of the Sundried Daisies, too.

Now let's have a look at the green confetti options...

Eucalyptus Confetti | Biodegradable Confetti | Paper Confetti

I know in this confetti mix I want to use just real flower petals, so I'm going to disregard the Paper Confetti for today. I love the look of the Green Lyo Carnation but I chose Carnation petals for my Ivory choice - so for the green element I think I'll try the Eucalyptus instead. It's always a great idea to mix and match sizes and shapes of petals simply because the variety looks great.

Lastly, let's choose our favourite pink...

Delphinium Confetti | Rose Petal Confetti | Biodegradable Confetti

YES! The Magenta Sun-Dried Rose petals jump out at me so I think I'm going to choose those.

So now we have picked three favourites. You can totally pick more or fewer, but three seems like a good number of colours to start.

Now you want to think about how you want your confetti to look. The Confetti Bar is so versatile that you can order your colours in varying quantities. Of course you can order the same amount of each colour and mix together. A great way, though, is to choose one of your colours as a base. This way you can add smaller amounts of the other colours to your base petals.

For this mix, I think I'm going to choose the Magenta Rose as my base colour.

(I totally chose this as my base not only because it is an awesome colour but also because it is the cheapest of my favourite petals. Win, win! Who doesn't want a cheap confetti which is also massively beautiful?)

Then you can add smaller amounts of Ivory Carnation and Eucalyptus which are slightly more expensive.

So, we have chosen our favourite colours and decided on our base petal. Now we want to make 1 litre of confetti. 1 litre is our 'standard' amount - we sell our Mixed For You confetti by the litre because it is the starting point to working out how much you need to buy depending on the number of guests.

We say 1 litre serves 20 people.

(So, quick maths, if you have 60 guests you would need 3 litres or 100 guests you would need 5 litres etc.)

If you need to know how much confetti you need for your wedding, our helpful blogpost can guide you in the right direction.

Shot - 50ml

Double - 100ml

Beaker - 250ml

Highball - 500ml

Pitcher - 1 litre

To make 1 litre, I have decided to choose a Highball (500ml) of Sun Dried Magenta Rose Petals and a Beaker (250ml) each of Eucalyptus and Ivory Lyo Carnation.

Now let's mix!

I LOVE this mix but I can't stop thinking about the Sun Ray Daisies I saw when I was choosing my Ivory confetti. I just want a pop of 'Daisieness' so I think I'm going to add a Shot (50ml) of these to my mix, too!

Top tip: Adding a Shot (50ml) or a Double (100ml) to your mix is a great way to incorporate a small splash of another colour to your confetti without spending too much extra money. Thank me later.

Once you have your perfect confetti recipe, you can order from The Confetti Bar up to 12 months in advance and we will store your petals for you. This means that even if the petals you love then go out of stock, they have been reserved for you and you don't risk your petals fading due to incorrect storage at home.

To order the correct amount, create your first Litre of confetti and then multiply the quantities depending on how many guests you need to cater for.

So my (imaginary) wedding has 80 guests. For this I would need 4 litres.

Recipe for 1 litre

Highball (500ml) of Magenta Rose

Beaker (250ml) of Eucalyptus

Beaker (250ml) of Ivory Lyo Carnation

*Optional* Shot (50ml) of Sunray Daisies

Now just simply multiply your quantities by 4!

Recipe for 4 litres

Two Pitchers (2 litres) of Magenta Rose

Pitcher (1 litre) of Eucalyptus

Pitcher (1 litre) of Ivory Lyo Carnation

*Optional* Two Doubles (200ml) of Sunray Daisies

Once your HOORAY MAIL arrives from Adamapple, you will see that each element of your confetti is sent in separate biodegradable packets.

This is so you have the joy of being a Confetti Mixologist in your own home. There's something very satisfying about mixing your beautiful petals together by hand.

Another top tip: If you love one of our pre made confetti mixes from the Mixed For You range but want to incorporate a splash of another colour, why not add a Shot (50ml) or a Double (100ml) of your favourite colour from the Confetti Bar and mix it up!

There are no rules when it comes to Adamapple Confetti! Make a mix totally bespoke to you and as unique as your Wedding Day.

All Adamapple confetti is 100% Biodegradable. Our confetti petals are simply natural flower petals with no bleaches or dyes used to change their natural colour. They are just as nature intended them to be.
