How much confetti do I need?
Well, that depends on the type of confetti you need, and how you will be sharing it amongst your guests. Below is a handy guide to help you work out how much you might need.
Sustainable Confetti Cones
Approximately 1/2 a cup of confetti or petals will fill a large cone. To fill 10 large cones, you will need 1 bag of confetti or petals.
Approximately 1/4 of a cup of confetti or petals will fill a small cone. To fill 10 small cones, you will need 1/2 a bag of confetti or petals. Alternatively, you can fill 20 small cones with 1 bag of confetti or petals.

Using your own cones?
Simply fill one of your cones with rice. Measure the volume of rice used to work out how much confetti you will need per cone. For example, if you needed 1/2 a cup of rice to fill your cone, you will need 1/2 cup of confetti. Although the materials are different, they still measure the volume in the same manner. Then, you can just work out how many cones you have and multiply that by the measurement of rice.
For example, 20 people x 1/2 cup each = 10 cups of confetti
