Confetti Collective is an event to celebrate and challenge the design skills of some of the best in the Arizona event industry. If you’re a newly-engaged couple, an event industry vendor, or design enthusiast, this event is for YOU! We’ve had the pleasure of working with the creative minds behind a lot of companies over the years and we’re so excited to showcase that talent! The event will be held at Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Bungalows on Saturday, February 10th, 2024 from 1pm – 4pm, featuring tablescapes designed by some of the top local planners. Attendees will be able to join in on the fun and vote for their favorite designs of the day, all while meeting some amazing event vendors and enjoying food, beverages, and music.

Over the years, we’ve noticed a tremendous shift towards more curated looks for events and we’d love to see an upward trend continue! Elevated tablescapes, lounges, and experiences set the vibe at events. Confetti Collective was inspired by similar events hosted in other large cities and we have seen those events grow their local industry in a significant way. If you’re interested in participating in the event, scroll down to read more info or schedule a consultation via CALENDLY to speak in person. Make sure you RSVP below to attend.

Current plans for Event Layout, subject to adjustments! Current plans as of December 30th, 2023


We want you all to think outside the box and see what you can do aside from just a tablescape, so here’s some more inspiration & ideas. This is not a bridal show booth scenario.


  • Each designer has an 8ft Queen’s table and the 10x10ft area around it dedicated to their display.
  • Nothing can be hung from trees and it is an open lawn, so there are no structures to hang from. However, if you can find your own structure that fits within a 10×10 space, you’re absolutely free to do that.


Again, we don’t want the displays to look booth-like, but you can do some of these things to make your table stand out.

  • Hanging Florals or Floral Arch Backdrops
  • Ground Florals
  • Lanterns & Chandeliers
  • Non-solid backdrops
  • Non-traditional table elements: Fruits, desserts, charcuterie, figurines, funky candles, stones, etc.
