NYC Intern – Party Time!

Today is Nat‘s last day detailing her experience at Confetti System and it’s party time! The decorations they are making today are just so gorgeous – I would love a party covered in CS flowers, piñatas and other treats. Luckily Third Drawer Down stock Confetti System products so that dream could be a possibility…! – Jenny x

I worked quite a bit on the decorations for the 30th birthday party for a editor of a high end fashion magazine which was at Indochine restaurant. Some people are living the life! Her party was really really incredibly decked out. For this we worked on paper flowers above which were scattered across the restaurant.

We also made a range of Piñata’s which Confetti System are well-known for. They are so beautiful with so much work put into each piece. I can’t imagine anyone ever breaking one, I think that would break my heart!

Nick and Julie have two employees at Confetti System, as well as interns coming and going all of the time. It’s a really busy space, which is actually quite small when you get to working on big projects, but you end up covered in confetti which isn’t so bad.

I had such a great time here. I actually can’t wait to go back and work with them again. It was a really inspiring studio to work from and see how the two of them had built it up to the great success it is today! On my departure I left them with a little gift – a Miniscapes terrarium!

Tomorrow I’ll chat to you guys about my second internship at the studio of Fredericks and Mae. Talk then!

    How amazing to create such a visual feast from such a simple concept. Each piece looks like a little party. Love it.

    I’ve admired both Confetti System and Frederick and Mae for so long and it feels a rare treat to get such an insight into such two such incredible design and make studios that take the concept of ‘handmade’ to yet another level. And I know I should be all over the Frederick and Mae horse hair tassels but they freak me out just a little. Give me one of their arrows any day. I’ll take anything Confetti Studio though!
