Exciting News - New Additions to the Team!

We are SO excited to introduce
you to our THREE newest


Hi everyone! I am Kyela and I am overjoyed to officially
be a part of the confetti team as an Associate Coordinator!

I graduated from the University of South Florida with a
Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communications and a
focus on Public Relations. After my first year in college,
it became clear that I wanted to take up planning as
a career. I have been working in the events industry
for the past four years and I am delighted to be a part of
the Confetti Team! I plan to stay in Tampa and am excited
to grow with this savvy team of "Confetti Girls!"

I have already learned so much from Jamie and can't
wait to continue to learn all things wedding! I have
been in love with the entire wedding industry from day
one. I am very passionate about planning and all
things detail-oriented. I see Confetti as the perfect fit
for me because I strive to be the best at everything I
do. The entire Confetti team reflects this same aspiration!
It is an honor to work with women who are just as
passionate as I am about what they do!



Nicole moved across the pond from UK to the Sunshine State
in 2000. In Tampa, she attended a performing arts high school
for voice and went on to the University of South Florida where
she graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Communication
and a Certification in Special Event Coordination. 

Her work ethic embodies personalized service, elegance and
fun, while creating stunning occasions and unforgettable
memories for her clients. She has a serious weakness for 
bouquets that look freshly picked, anything with a bow on
it and gorgeous calligraphy. When she's not party prepping,
Nicole unwinds by trying new restaurants and recipes,
decorating her new house and pinning ideas/inspiration
on Pinterest!



Hello everyone! My name is Alyssa and I am so beyond excited
to become one of the newest Associate Coordinators! I have 
been a part of the wedding industry for two years and have
fallen completely head over heels for the business
of making dreams become realities! Once I started, I told
myself I would make event planning my life-- that's how
much I love doing what I do!

I love helping others get organized and prepared because
I love the feeling of making others stress free! I find that
being creative and passionate about my clients' vision
makes me fit in with the Confetti team perfectly. 
I am also blessed to have this opportunity from Jamie to
come full circle in this industry and to dive right into this
incredibly opportunity with Confetti! 

They say that if you love what you do, you'll never
work a day in your life. So far...I can say they are 
right about that!

Sweet Praises

We are so honored to have received 
these sweet words from
one of our past brides!

June 15, 2013 Wedding - Plant City and Downtown Tampa

"From the first meeting with Alison and Confetti Events, the organization, 
demeanor, and professionalism displayed blew my wife and I away. 
Throughout the entire planning process, Alison was always one step 
ahead of the planning or vision that we had in mind. Her precision
and attention to detail was nothing short of amazing. From the beginning, 
Alison listened to what we wanted and made sure that on 
the day of our wedding that, it happened. On our wedding day, 
Alison and her team blew every expectation we had away. 
Again her attention to detail took care of even the smallest things. 
June 15th will always be special to us and because of Alison
and her team it will always be our perfect day!!!"

Ideas We Love - Hair Care

Welcome to
Ideas We Love

Yay! The days are dwindling down and the event you’ve been 
waiting for is drawing closer and closer! No matter what 
the event may be, the one thing that us girls constantly
contemplate after the thought of “What am I going to wear?!” is…
How should my hair look??

Hair is one of those staples of a woman’s outfit that is 
almost as important as what she is actually wearing.
It not only shows taste and fashion but it pulls your entire
outfit together completing your look. No matter what your
hair color or length are, there are always ways to create a
hairdo that wows the crowd and will never be forgotten. 

Keep these tips in mind while planning your look for your event
 to make sure your hair looks as perfect as the event itself!
1) Don’t drastically change your cut or color the day of
the big event. Many of us want to create a new look and
make our hair “perfect” the day of the big event, but dying
or cutting your hair in a drastic way the day of your event 
could create complications. Instead, talk to your stylist about 
coloring/cutting your hair 1-2 weeks in advance so corrections can 
be made if necessary with the extra time you have allowed yourself. 

 2) The Olive-Oil Diet. Looking for more elasticity and 
conditioning? Use a comb to rake a tablespoon of olive oil 
through the hair once a week to create the nourishing look you desire.
You can also apply olive oil before going to the beach to prevent 
your hair from becoming dehydrated from the sun and salt water.

3) Withstand that burst of cold. While in the shower, 
right before you get out turn on the cold water and let it run through 
your hair. This simple trick seals your cuticle while creating 
a sleek finishing look to your strands.

4) Frizz-me-not. Want to keep away that frizz
that constantly seems to linger on your hair whenever you 
get out of the shower? Before you get out, try to wring out as 
much water as you can and then use a paper towel to squeeze
out the rest. Then, let air dry 5 to 10 minutes before blow drying 
or styling. By not wrapping up your hair in a towel, it prevents your 
locks from sitting in a hot and humid space, 
creating that unwanted frizz.

5) The Oktoberfest Rinse. Try this home remedy: 
Mix half a liter of beer with lukewarm water and pour into a 
spray bottle, spritzing on dry hair. Leave in 20 minutes and 
then rinse to keep hair strong and glossy.

6) Blonde Secrets from the Czechs. Looking for 
a neutral blonde color? Boil the skins of 6 yellow onions in 
4 cups of water and use as a rinse. This is how Czech 
women achieve their beautiful blonde hair. 
The best part: the rinse doesn’t smell!

7) As thick as a horsetail. Looking for longer, thicker 
and ultimately healthier hair? Try Mane N’ Tail Horse Shampoo 
which helps you to achieve your desired look. 
Use like regular shampoo.

We Love Pretty Hair!
