Hi! I’m Alison. Welcome to Just Add Confetti!
Around here I celebrate life, not perfection. I believe that everyone (yes, everyone!) can be creative. I know that kindness is powerful…and contagious. The art of gift giving and recognizing others is important—and the smallest gestures can make the biggest impacts. I create celebrations. I enjoy a good mess if getting there was fun. I love graphic design. It makes me happy. And it gives me even more joy to share it.
My hope is that this site is not only a source of inspiration but also a resource to you—through our wide variety of party ideas, printables and DIYs. As well as gift giving printables and recipes.
Before starting Just Add Confetti, I worked as an art director and graphic designer for over 14 years. In 2018 I chose to follow my creative passion of party design and styling and began blogging as a profession. Even in this relatively short amount of time, I have had wonderful opportunities to work with many national brands including Coca-Cola, Country Crock, Walmart, Minions, VTech, Hershey’s, Nick Jr. TV Show; Peppa Pig, and Disney Jr. TV Show; Gigantosaurus. I am also a monthly contributor at Oriental Trading Fun365. You can check out all of my Fun365 parties and projects here. My work has also been featured by Shutterfly and American Greetings as well as in print— in The Knot and Women’s World magazines.
A little more about me… I’m a wife to my college sweetheart, Scott. He is my best friend and supports and encourages all of my (crazy) dreams. We were married in July 2010. Our wedding was one of the most magical days of my life. There is no one else in this world that I would rather do life with than him.
I’m a mama to my two wonderful boys, Sawyer and Easton. They forever keep me on my toes and I love them with all of my heart. My family means absolutely everything to me. They are my whole life.
