Toronto company wants to mail you a party in a box

Posted by Natalia Manzocco / May 21, 2014

party in a boxDo you wish you could throw parties that look just like your Pinterest boards, all whimsical striped straws and fluffy paper pom-poms? A new Toronto start-up will save you the hassle of personally nailing that recipe for Cookie Monster cupcakes. Confetti is the brainchild of Megan Wappel, a graphic designer, and Christina Wong, the owner of Truffle Cake & Pastry, who have pooled their talents to create picture-perfect, coordinated sets of baked goods and party decorations that can be scaled up or down to suit your next gathering.

Interested parties (err, hosts of parties) can first choose from one of 12 design themes, from polka dots to argyle to zig-zags. Then, select your party size, from X-Small (a dozen each of cupcakes and cookies, plus decorative napkins and candy bags) all the way up to XLarge (a two-tiered cake, brownies, cake pops, cupcakes, cookies, and a raft of coordinated party supplies like plates, cups, straws and ribbons). If you've already got your icing technique on lock, you can just order the Wappel-designed tableware and decorations.

The business, which launches June 1, is currently only taking orders for the Toronto area for baked goods, but decoration-only boxes can be shipped all over North America.

Isn't it interesting how similar they are to an already existing and successful business, http://confettiandco.ca/ ?

What the hell! That's sooo sketchy! Who do these people think they are? Did they do any market research prior? Woof.

It looks like they sell general party supplies, while this business sells kits that come with baked goods. Similar name, different business.
