Great Ways To Liven Up Your Festivities

If you’re thinking about having a party or celebration of some sort then you may be considering ways to liven it up and add excitement to the procedures. You’re obviously going to want to create a memorable experience for your guests and ensure that they look forward to the next party you host.

One of the easiest ways to do this is by introducing and letting off fireworks during the evening portion of your party, and there is a large selection of fireworks for you to choose from. Different fireworks produce different audio and visual effects, so it’s important to spend some time reading up about what the different products do.

You will also need to consider the space you have to let the fireworks off, as certain fireworks require a minimum space due to safety regulations. Remember, fireworks have an explosive element and as such safety is extremely important. Always follow the instructions printed on the packaging and ensure that minors and pets are kept well away from a lit firework.

Your guest’s safety is your responsibility, and you need to ensure that they are not put in harm’s way.

Popular Fireworks

fireworks displayFireworks were originally invented by the Chinese over a thousand years ago as they looked for new ways to heighten excitement during their celebrations. In the years since fireworks have gone on to become the number one accompaniment to parties and festivities all over the world. As a result it’s quite easy to locate fireworks, and there are probably many retailers in your area who stock them.

However, for safety reasons, I recommend that you avoid buying your fireworks from local sellers and instead source them from a reputable company such as Fireworks Crazy. This will guarantee that the products are of the highest quality and there are no faults or problems with the product’s design.


Rockets are generally considered to be the most popular type of firework sold today and are available in a range of audio and visual effects. These products consist of a fuse attached to a body which in turn is connected to a thin straight stick or rod, which is pressed into the ground and keeps the product pointing skyward.

When the rocket ignites it shoots off into the sky and explodes after five to ten seconds.

Roman Candles

These are also very popular but are quite different to rockets. A roman candle consists of a large candle-like holder with a fuse sticking out from the top. The candle remains on the ground and instead shoots out one or more coloured sparks between ten and fifteen feet into the air.

There is a large variation in the style and sizes available, and you can also buy roman candle barrages which are made up of a number of candles that shoot at the same time.


These are similar to the roman candles in that they remain stationary, but unlike a candle fountains produce a multitude of colourful sparks for a short period of time. Fountains are quite soft in their audio output and produce a soft crackling noise.
