Most of our products are geared towards weddings, but we also offer a variety of items for holidays and events. One of the best options available for this are bottle sparklers because they are versatile and add a spark of life to the party. However, there are so many ways that they can be used that it can be a little overwhelming. Fortunately, I get to hear all sorts of fun triumphs and failures from our customers, and I’m always eager to share. Here are the top 10 ways to use bottle sparklers for holidays and events to help guide your adventure.
New Year’s Eve Toast
One of the most popular holidays in the US for celebrating is New Year’s Eve, so that’s a great place to start our list. Overall, it’s the second most popular day to use fireworks as well, so using sparklers on New Year’s Eve is quite common. However, most people think of the traditional “stick” style versions when they head out shopping. But, in fact, bottle sparklers are a much better fit! Imagine breaking out the champagne at midnight with a few attached to each bottle. I promise, it will be a midnight that you and your guests remember forever.
Mardi Gras Float Decorations
Mardi Gras is an iconic celebration that is headquartered in New Orleans, Louisiana. However, many other places embrace the celebration as well. There are many traditions surrounding Mardi Gras that people embrace, but the most memorable one is the large parades that are held. People spend the entire year preparing their floats for Mardi Gras utilizing bright colors and shiny materials. Additionally, many people use fireworks to add some extra excitement to the design. In my opinion, using bottle sparklers for holidays like this is the best option. Their cylindrical shape is perfect for the task, and they are much more impressive than traditional versions.
Real “Sparkling” Wine on Valentine’s Day
Generally, people think of champagne when they consider attaching our products to bottles. However, they can actually fit on any type of bottle you can imagine! So, this Valentine’s Day, consider choosing a fine wine instead and make it “sparkling” yourself. Wine tends to go much better with delicious food than champagne, so it ends up being the perfect choice. Trust me; it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than buying real champagne from the region in France.
Glittering Gold on St. Patrick’s Day
St. Patrick’s Day is known for a lot of things like leprechauns, wearing green, and pots of gold. However, using bottle sparklers for holidays like these is a great idea, too! Since they create gold sparks, you can easily fit them into the theme in a variety of ways. For instance, you could garnish your mug of green beer with one, or attach them to a fancy bottle of Irish whisky. No matter how you celebrate, using sparklers on St. Patrick’s Day can be a fun new tradition for you and your crew.
More Fun than Dying Easter Eggs
Easter may be all about bunnies, eggs, and candy, but our products can play a role as well. Instead of doing a traditional Easter egg hunt, consider performing an activity using sparklers to entertain the children. Additionally, if you will be entertaining adults, bottle sparklers can be used to enhance the appearance of your cocktails. With a little creativity, you can make the Easter a much more colorful and exciting holiday!
An Independence Day Classic
As most of us already know, a lot of people buy sparklers for the 4th of July. However, the local stores usually only carry regular “stick” versions and the selection is rather bleak. To change things up, consider using bottle sparklers instead for a more dramatic approach. For instance, you can stick them in the ground for a cool ground display. Optionally, you can add them to your cupcakes or offer your guests a late night bottle service experience. No matter what your plan happens to be, they are a great way to give your friends an unexpected treat.
Put Them in Your Pumpkins
When Halloween rolls around, most people are tied up in deciding on a costume to wear. After all, most children are really only concerned about how big of a candy haul they acquire. Conversely, adults are usually concerned about finding the best Halloween party to attend. However, carving pumpkins is also a fun tradition for this epic holiday. Instead of illuminating your jack-o-lanterns with regular candles or LED lights, consider using bottle sparklers to do the job instead. Sure, they don’t last as long as a regular candle; but the effect is much cooler and your kids will love it! I always put sparklers in our pumpkins just before the kids leave for trick-or-treating and then switch them out for LED candles. That way, you get a fun experience while still keeping them lit up for the night.
Use Them as Anniversary or Birthday Cake Sparklers
Of course, you should never forget about all the yearly events like anniversaries and birthday parties that can benefit from our products. Fortunately, they work on either bottles or cakes, so you only have to keep one item on hand. Typically, using sparklers at a birthday party or anniversary always involves the cake. Instead of candles or cake toppers, just swap them out for bottle sparklers. You won’t get to blow them out, but the show is much more entertaining and will make the guests of honor feel so much more appreciated.
Christmas Morning Surprise
On Christmas morning, most children run to their stockings to enjoy small toys and treats that Santa Clause left for them. Once their parents are awake, they descend upon the Christmas tree to open up their larger gifts. Amidst all of this excitement, many families have traditions like setting up a toy train or reading books about the meaning of Christmas. However, using bottle sparklers can be a fun tradition as well if you know how to do it right! Some people put them in the stockings as gifts while others decorate a large breakfast with them. Whichever you choose, it is a fun way to make this holiday much more magical.
Sparkling Turkey on Thanksgiving
Lastly, when you think about dressing your Thanksgiving turkey, the mind automatically focuses on golden-brown skin and a cavity full of stuffing. For extreme chefs, you can slip those little covers over the drumsticks to make the presentation more elaborate. However, you can also stick a few bottle sparklers on the turkey before it makes its grand entrance to the dining room table. Some people have used candles for this in the past, and the concept is quite similar. However, our products will dazzle your guests a whole lot more. Plus, since they are food-grade, you won’t need to worry about damaging your delicate bird.
