When most people hear the word "pyrotechnics," they often think of extravagant fireworks that you would see on the 4th of July. While this is one component of the industry, close proximity pyrotechnics can be as small as a few feet and give an incredible effect both indoors and out. Parties by Design holds a Federal Explosive License and has served a wide variety of clients big and small, including:

  • Carolina Panthers

  • Charlotte Hornets/Bobcats

  • Elevation Church

  • Disney/Pixar on Ice

  • Barnum & Bailey Circus

  • Blumenthal Performing Arts

  • Town of Matthews

  • And countless music concerts

Scroll through the galleries below to get some ideas on what both display fireworks and close proximity pyrotechnics offer and then schedule a consultation so we can bring that WOW factor to your event.


Display Fireworks

Looking to put on a colorful show in the sky? Display fireworks are perfect for not only the 4th of July, but also New Year's Eve, sporting events, wedding, grand openings, and many other special events.


Close Proximity

While display fireworks often receive the glory, close proximity pyrotechnics can make a close up and more intimate impact on your guests. We can customize a show specifically for your event needs with a variety of special effects, including flame towers, fire balls, sparkling waterfalls, and much more. Whether you are planning a sporting event, concert, wedding, show, or something completely different, we can help you create that wow factor that your guests won't soon forget.
