Shopping For Fireworks Assortments VS Picking Your Own

Table of Contents

Are you the type of fireworks enthusiast who likes to pick out individual items or do you prefer the convenience of fireworks assortments? Both are viable ways to set up spectacular 4th of July displays as well as further your fireworks hobby. In this post, we’d like to break down the different ways you can more effectively shop using either approach.

Buying Fireworks Assortments

This purchasing method involves relying on the convenience of selecting a pre-selected variety of fireworks. Particularly for beginners who don’t know what to get, this is a great option. That’s because Black Cat knows the market well, knows what goes into a solid fireworks show, and pre-packages these assortments to reflect the most popular items.

Are you in a hurry, need to grab some fireworks, and then head back to working, cooking, and raising children? Then this might be the best way to obtain fireworks because it lets you get a value pack with plenty of cool fireworks along with important accessory items like sparklers and punks. You can buy one assortment kit and not need anything else for your backyard show.

Also, there is no shortage in assortment variety, both in terms of cost and sophistication. You could buy an assortment of packages ranging anywhere from $20 to $1,000 in value. Don’t forget to check out some of the cool items we put into assortments by visiting

Buying Fireworks Individually

Are you the type of fireworks veteran who eagerly awaits the opportunity to do the best display on the block every 4th of July? Then this is probably how you want to buy your fireworks. If you know how to light and choreograph an elaborate firework show, then you’ll want to poke around some and buy them individually.

Today, it’s possible to mix and match items and really create something awesome, assuming you know how to safely and effectively light fireworks. That’s not to say you couldn’t achieve this with an assortment, but if you know exactly what you want, then some of the things in the package kit won’t really suit your goals. Sometimes it’s much better to mix and match a few 200g and 500g cakes to accomplish an excellent show.

So, Which Is Better?

Our bias is in favor of buying individually if you’re a seasoned pyro looking to do a perfectly choreographed fireworks show. However, we recognize that not everybody has the experience, budget, or wherewithal to do so. In general, experienced pyros, like us, usually buy individually, but families who need something solid and convenient might be better off with a good assortment deal.

Last but not least, you’re probably wondering how effective it is to purchase fireworks online. Unfortunately, the fireworks industry doesn’t lend itself too well to online shopping like you normally do with sites like Amazon. The United States is a complex checkerboard of state regulations that make buying and shipping fireworks rather difficult. Therefore, this is still the kind of business where transactions occur in person at either a permanent store or one of those temporary fireworks tents you see during the week leading up to July 4th. If you are going to try to buy fireworks online, check your state and local laws to see if is legal to purchase and receive fireworks via common carrier.
