You know when you get an idea you’re super excited about and can’t help but immediately write your creative photographer friend to help you capture all the magic? That’s exactly how I felt when I thought of Confetti Pong!
I got to thinking how cool it would be to reinvent Beer Pong with a colorful twist (that’s fun for all ages!), so I wrote mah girl Laura Dee, and the stars aligned to include Confetti Pong in a Unicorn-themed Sweet 16 photo shoot. Yaaassss.
2021 UPDATE: You can now buy your own Confetti Pong set here!
So the concept here is pretty simple and all you need are:
+Clear cups (20 of ’em, and if you’re feeling extra glam, you can glue some glitter to the rims!)
+Confetti (I found about 1/2 cup to be a good amount to put in each cup, which means to play one round you need about 10 cups of confetti. Our mystery bulk bags are 10 cups each, and my recommendation if you don’t have a preference to color. Playing outside? Be sure to get biodegradable confetti!)
+Ping pong / Table tennis balls (Bonus points if they’re colorful like these. << Amazon affiliate link)
+A table to set it all up on
Set up 10 cups on each side of the table in a pyramid-like formation with one team stationed on each side. Take turns throwing the ping pong balls across the table, trying to get them in the cups on the opposite side. If you sink a ball in a cup of confetti? You have to throw the confetti in the air! (Or dump it on your partner…😈) The team that throws all of their opponent’s cups of confetti wins!
The game only gets more fun as it goes on, with everyone covered in confetti and looking happy. 😊 It’s addicting to play and you can’t help but smile the whole way through.
By the end everything will look like a confetti wonderland, which to me is the sign of any really awesome celebration!
