I first started out in business in 2013 from my home studio in Ashford, Kent with a laser cutting, engraving and marking company, Laser Inspired Designs, designing and creating personalised gifts and offering laser cutting services to small businesses. The business grew and won various awards in the first 18 months of business, of which I'm really proud of. Five years on, I wasn't happy with where the business was going, so I took a step back and really thought about what I wanted to do.
As I was doing some research, I came across various companies offering confetti, the same old, plain and boring confetti.
In the words of Gru from the Despicable Me movie, "light bulb" (I love those films) and a business that designs and creates customised and personalised confetti for weddings, parties and corporate events was created.
My first confetti collection was the engraved 'Just Married' wedding table hearts and butterflies, all laser cut and engraved from wood and various types and colours of acrylics. Then I created the personalised wedding table confetti, which have proved to be very popular in a very short period of time.
I'm now currently working on different collections, ranging from the traditional throwing confetti, using biodegradable tissue paper to personalised table confetti, using biodegradable paper stock, wood and acrylics. Also, I'll be adding confetti accessories such as cones, boxes, stands etc., again all designed and created by myself with the help of my fantastic laser machine.
My laser machine also enables me to make the confetti very eco-friendly, by using the electricity supplied from the 16 solar panels attached to the roof of my house and I am very proud to be able to make my confetti the eco-friendly way.
I'm at the very beginning of this amazing adventure and I'm really looking forward to journey ahead, both in business and personally. I really hope that you'll share the journey with me, so that we can grow and make the business a success that I know it can be.
So celebrate your next big party, event, award ceremony, company gala or wedding with any of our confetti collections and make your Confetti Moment a Dreams & Confetti Moment.
