SPARKLING SENDOFFS

Sparklers aren’t just for the Fourth of July. They’re also the perfect way to say “goodbye” before stepping into your getaway car!

Playing with fire not really your thing? Distribute flags instead! Bonus points if you gift your guests with fun dance floor props. We promise they’ll be into it, and you’ll get some amazing reception photos out of it, too!
