Campaign Story

What is Confetti Fiesta?

Confetti Fiesta was born out of the desire to create experiences that make others happy and to create items inspired by my culture. Confetti Fiesta is a Latina-owned business based in East Los Angeles that creates unique handmade party decorations that positively represent the Latinx culture and create a sense of community at any time of the year.

2013-When I was cutting everything by hand, I wouldn’t get my cutting machine for another 2 years

How the Fiesta Began

Since I can remember I’ve always gone above and beyond to decorate parties. My mom and I would come up with these really big over the top ideas to make the party extra special. It’s the little details that help turn your event from a party to an experience. Before I had my cutting machine I would cut and draw everything by hand. It was difficult but it was a labor of love. With the equipment and better skills I’ve been able to design and create items that I wouldn’t have thought possible.

I had always wanted to start a business creating party items. So after getting my hours cut at my day job I decided to take the risk and start Confetti Fiesta. It took me forever to come up with my business name and even longer to draw up my logo. I wanted everything to be perfect.

I turned my passion into a hobby and then into a business.

Growing Into a Business

While in this process I have had the fortunate opportunity to be working with ESTEC LA Incubator – powered by OmniWorks. This program was designed to help jump start entrepreneurship for women, people of color, LGBTQ, and veterans and support local community economic growth, specifically in East LA. For the past year they have been helping me gain new skills, resources, and mentorship.

Now I am ready to put these skills to use but I need your help! For the past 2 years I have been selling my handmade designs and products on Etsy and at lots of pop-ups and art events. With your support I will be able to take Confetti Fiesta to the next level and turn it into a thriving business by purchasing new equipment and expanding my business and marketing capacity. To thank you for your support, I have created a collection of exclusive rewards for this campaign.

 

Community Inspired

Being a vendor in the Latino community, I’ve been able to see peoples’ reactions when they see my products. They are surprised to see that someone has created party items that remind them of their childhood.

With this political climate, it’s easy to get discouraged and hide our Culture but being a local entrepreneur I’ve seen first hand that despite all the heartache, the community is resilient. Now more than ever it’s important to embrace our culture and keep the Latinx heritage alive.

There is too much color, history, love and pride to hide our culture. Confetti Fiesta is about celebrating the culture. It’s about creating magic by taking everyday items and turning them into a celebration.

Delivery of Rewards

After the campaign closes a survey will be sent to you to confirm your delivery address and to obtain any custom information. We expect all rewards to be delivered within 3 months of the close of the campaign, but will do our best to deliver to you as soon as possible. We’re just as excited to get them to you!

    Off to a great start

    Thank you so much for your support. We reached 10% of our goal!!! Because of your support I’ve been able to sign up for more community pop ups.

    Its get better & better

    Last year on November 19, 2018 I attended my 1st community pop up in downtown Los Angeles. I has Such a great experience and I knew that it was something I wanted to keep doing.

    MY 1ST POP UP-I had no idea what i was doing but I loved every minute of it.

    When I started these events were no more $50 But as they grew in popularity they more expressive they became. My budget did not have room for these events until next year. Pop Ups take a lot of planning and often they announce the event and you’re payment is due in the next day or so. So even with all the planning, without the funds readily available, its very difficult to participate in them.

    These events are vital for my business growth and because of you’re support I will be doing 3 Pop Ups this Month. The Most I have ever done. I am very excited to showcase my new products and see how much my business is going to grow.

    November 2, 2019- it just get better & better

    Thank you for supporting my dream-Lissette

    Con mucho amor-Lissete

    It's been a while...

    know it’s been a long time since I updated you. For that am sorry. As an entrepreneur sometime life gets in the way and other things like family come before the business. But no matter what happened I was always thinking about confetti fiesta. So am a little behind on my business and am a little overwhelmed but am still here standing.

    I wanted to let you know that I did buy a new machine. Yay!!

    Thank you for all you patience and your support, I really could not have done this with out your help.
