party supplies needed from cups , plates , napkins , decorations , and of course , a full balloon bar .
Confetti ’ s balloon bar includes seasonal , birthday , and allaround-fun foil balloons in different shapes and sizes , as well as every color imaginable of the standard latex balloons . Creating balloon bundles has become Confetti ’ s specialty .
“ Busy moms are my primary inspiration . I am one so I understand what they need ,” says Kacie . The store not only offers gift wrapping , but also pre-wraps the most popular items for on-the-go gifting . Kacie also uses the store ’ s Instagram account to show gift items bundled together for convenience and ease when one is in a hurry to get to their next celebration . Customers often call the store and request the team to wrap up something they saw so they can swing by and do a quick pick up . The addition of Venmo has made this service even easier .
Confetti originally served solely as a place for unique adult and children ’ s gifts , but after adding a party section and the balloon bar , the business has outgrown its current space . The business wants to continue providing the products that customers desire which requires a move .
In order to continue the fun , Kacie will be “ Doubling the Confetti ” into a new , larger space on the opposite end of The Shoppes at Lake Tuscaloosa . “ The biggest factor in our expansion is our ever-growing seasonal and party lines ,” said Kacie . “ Not only can we offer more of these products , but we can now showcase them and give customers inspiration for how to use them in their home .”
Double the space brings double the fun , meaning Confetti will double their customer -favorite lines and expand their customer service . The space will also allow for more storage and shipping capabilities to serve online customers . “ I am most excited for our designated balloon bar and unique photo area where customers can snap a fun picture ,” said Kacie . “ We want visits to Confetti to be an experience , not just another ‘ check ’ on your to-do list .”
May is a busy time for everyone with Mother ’ s Day and teachers ’ gifts , so Kacie wants to make sure the store is open to help everyone with their gifts needs through the end of the school year . Confetti plans to move from its current location to its new one starting June 1 and expects to be re-opened mid-month . During the transition time , customers can still order online for curbside pickup at the store . Confetti will be active on social media accounts , where customers can directmessage to purchase , or one can call the store to place an order as well . Kacie encourages customers to follow the journey through social media for updates , specials , and inspiration .
