Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, falls on February 28th in 2017. The best weekend to catch all the action in New Orleans is February 24th to 28th, when you’ll catch all the best parades like Zulu, Bacchus, Rex and Endymion. Whether you want to take part in the festivities in the Big Easy or in your hometown, you can make it the ultimate Mardi Gras experience with Flutter FETTI!


Make it Yours

At Flutter FETTI, we’re focused on making events extra special with confetti and streamer options customized for your needs. In fact, we have several pages of Mardi Gras products for you to browse. Our tissue Flutter FETTI is designed to stay in the air longer, to really give that WOW factor to your event. Plus, Flutter FETTI tissue is biodegradable and made from recycled paper, so it’s easy on the environment. Staying inside for evening? Try our 18″ Airless Confetti Launchers with Metallic Streamers for a colorful and display of your party spirit. Our Confettiologists are standing by to help you make your next event amazing!

These were specifically created for this holiday and each stick contains purple, yellow and green tissue Flutter FETTI, and has purple, green and gold pom-poms and a noisemaker at the other end.

“Flutter FETTI is so much fun! We ordered the 14″ sticks for Mardi Gras every year (we walk in a parade on Mardi Gras morning). They are so festive and people in the crowd just LOVE to be showered with confetti!”  Kim S.

“I am very very pleased with our confetti sticks. We order over 500 and received as promised. Our Mardi Gras Royalty will be using them very shortly for our Krewe of Gemini XXVI Grand Bal & Tableau!” Bernadette B.

“Ordered 8 launchers with just streamers, no confetti. Order came in VERY fast and when used, a storm of streamers came out from the double-sided launchers. So easy to use and the visual effect was top notch. Next Mardi Gras….we’ll do it again.” Rob D.
