Sprinkles as Confetti

“… and no confetti. I think that’s about it. Any questions?”  My venue coordinator ended her spiel on the rules and regulations of the property and pulled the contract out of her bag. “I’m sorry, did you say ‘no confetti?’”

As you can see, confetti was a key ingredient. Unfortunately, many outdoor venues these days are saying no to confetti and ours was one of them. In the end, we went with lavender, a great (and yummy-smelling) eco-friendly alternative.

Aren't they pretty? And they have so many uses. Be on the lookout for them in future Pink Peony shoots - we have big plans for these little guys.
