 The Confetti Bar is a place where your happiness is celebrated--no matter how small or grand the occasion is. If you dream it-Jessica can turn it into confetti. 

Here is a peak at The Yellow Spectacle's interview with the Queen of Confetti:  

The Yellow Spectacles: How did you get started in making confetti?

The Confetti Bar: Confetti…it’s like the quintessential symbol for celebrations, right? It’s colorful and whimsical and fun and magical everything you generally want a party to be. So why not really make it something special?...

Well that’s what I thought when I decided to start The Confetti Bar! I literally woke up one day and told my husband I wanted to open a confetti shop, and that’s how this all began.

TYS: How do you actually make confetti? With a machine, by hand etc?

TCB: Depending on what we need to make / what look we are going for we utilize a variety of methods for making confetti - anything from scissors to shredders to specialty machines, we use it all! While we mainly use machines to do the actual cutting, I've been known to sit there with a pair of scissors and cut out teeny tiny shapes if necessary!

TYS: Did you have any in the starting stages?

TCB: I could and would not be where I am today without the help and support of my family. My husband has been my business partner from day one, and despite looking at me like I was crazy when I first told them my idea, my mom and step dad have been instrumental in allowing me to pursue this full time and getting our new studio space.

TYS: Why do you love what you do?

TCB: Because I get to make people happy sharing what I love.

TYS: Do you do more than just confetti?

TCB: Personally I wear many hats - I also co-own another business, Monarch, in which we host creative workshops for women, and I also recently started up a personal blog called Simple Unsweet to chronicle my health and wellness journey.

TYS:  What are your plans for your new work space?

TCB: With our new studio we've got big plans - think more awesome photo shoots,
confetti filled events, craft nights, more offerings, and all around confetti-filled fun

TYS: Describe your career in three words:

TCB: Magical. Challenging. Rewarding.

TYS: If you had to make A Yellow Spectacles (my blog) confetti what would it look like?

TCB: Just going by the name, I see a mix that is mainly black and white with some actual yellow glasses shapes mixed in!

TYS: The best part of your job….

TCB: I absolutely love any time someone tells me that seeing my photos or receiving my product made them happy. It’s cheesy and corny, but it’s the truth! Confetti is supposed to be fun, so when I hear that it made someone smile it lets me know I’m doing something right!

TYS: The worst part of your job….

TCB: Having to worry about finances - I’m not a numbers gal, but I've had to learn pretty quickly all about things like bookkeeping, accounting, taxes, etc. etc. No fun, but necessary!


TYS: If you weren't a mixologist you'd be a ……

TCB: Unicorn.
