What is a CONFETTATA? It is a rich selection of confetti, sweet white bonbons, symbol of the Italian wedding. Old aunties’ or grandpas’ friends who want to know when you are going to get married will ask you instead: “When am I going to get your confetti?!”
The traditional format of confetti is a bitter almond covered with smooth white sugar (Avola almonds are the top quality).
Nowadays even the confetti have undergone innovation processes! While the traditional almond confetti were the only ones on the market for a long while, now they come in different colors, fruit fillings, coffee, liquor, chocolate and unexpected flavors like tiramisu, amaretto or ricotta.
You will find strawberry, coconut, marron glace and the most sophisticated and delicate flowers, like orange, rose and violet.
Confettata can replace the wedding take-home-gifts, and it is at the same time a nice surprise for your guests.
How does it work? A wide array of flavors is arranged on a beautifully decorated table. On the same table there are little paper, lace, silk or fabric bags, one for each of you guests. Everybody taste and choose the flavors they like and fill up their own bag to bring home.
A few pieces of advice for a successful confettata:
Since the confettata is a gift, remember to provide a small bag to carry confetti at home and keep a memory of your wedding.
The simplest bags can be made of paper, cotton or silk and they can have your initials embroidered or printed on them. If you prefer a box, you could pick it in Plexiglas: once the confetti will be gone, it can transform into a jewel box, coins holder, etc.
