What are cone hats?
Cone hats are actually derived from the Dunce cap that was forced upon poorly behaving children in school. The Dunce Cap was meant to publicly humiliate children to try to embarrass them in front of their classmates and correct their attitude. The first Dunce, or cone hats, were typically made by the teacher by simply rolling a large sheet of paper into a cone shape and attaching it in the back. It was used to try to admonish bad behavior and teach good manners. We are sure it was only a matter of time before the class clown would intentionally try to get in trouble so they would have to stand in the corner and get to wear the cone hat. We all know kids that don't care what kind of attention they get, as long as they get any attention.
Party Cone Hats
The modern day party cone hats that we carry are derivatives of this early hat and have come to symbolize, silliness, mischief, and general fun. Cone party hats are especially popular during birthday parties where typically all of the guests wear cone hats made of paper or foil material. Even people who typically wouldn't dress up for a party, will put on a party favor cone hat if you hand them one. The design of the party cone hat is perfect for turning it into a table centerpiece or a customized place setting.
