Confetti Mailbag

Dear Snow Globe Central:

My husband and I are of different faiths. Do you have any confetti that works for both Christian and Jewish holidays?

Happily Married

Dear Happily:

There are many ways you can go to say "Happy Holidays," "Winter Greetings," "Merry Christmas" and "Happy Hanukkah" with confetti choices. One option is to choose a meaningful, but non-specific confetti, such as  snow, iridescent dust or silver stars. However, every year we also have people who want to recognize and honor their religious beliefs with confetti combinations using silver crosses, white Stars of David, silver bells or angel confetti. The choice is yours.

See our holiday confetti!



Dear Snow Globe Central:

I love your snow globes! My BFF and I have been trading them on our birthdays and at Christmas and I have three Snow Globe Central snow globes so far. But I have a question. How come you have a zillion confetti shapes, but almost all of them are silver, white, black or pearl? Can't you jazz things up with some colors?

This is not a Real Tattoo, Mom!

Dear Tattoo:

At Snow Globe Central, we always hope that the custom snow globe you design will be something you cherish for years to come. We have done research and testing to be sure the components we use will stand up to the test of time as much as possible. Because of that, we do not use colored confetti, as beautiful as it is, because most colors will "leech" their dye out into the liquid, after a period of time. This means a magenta confetti will look good for a while, but slowly the confetti will lighten in color and the liquid will be stained light pink. Same with reds, blues, greens and so on. Gold is somewhat stable, but over time, it will tint the liquid and we could not control the look of the globe.

We have tested a few colors, notably the hot pink hearts, that have held up in our snow globe liquid. And the bright iridescent holographic powders (that have a fantastic hang-time in the liquid and float VERY slowly) come in pink, purple, black, teal green, silver, white and ...oooooh, la lah! ... tequila sunrise. So far, we have had success with those colors being stable in the liquid. You might want to choose a confetti you like (in silver/white/black) and then add one of our iridescent dust powders in a brighter color to get a unique effect. View our colored confetti options.

And by the way, I'm glad that's not a real tattoo, too!
