I believe you are asking the Baltic States rather than Beltic States.
Confetti (the singular form is confetto) is a multitude of small pieces of paper or plastic which are usually thrown at celebrations, especially weddings. Confetti is made in a variety of colors, and commercially available confetti is available in imaginative shapes. A distinction is made between confetti and glitter; glitter is smaller than confetti (pieces usually no larger than 1mm) and is universally shiny, whereas confetti is usually not shiny.
The English word "confetti" is related to the Italian sweet of the same name. Italian confetti are almonds with a hard sugar coating. It can be translated from Italian to mean "confit", as in Confiture. The Italian word for paper confetti is coriandoli.
The Baltic states refer to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania were controlled by the Soviet Union during 1940-1941 and 1944 (1945)-1991, and have been members of the European Union and NATO since 2004. Today the three countries are liberal democracies, parliamentary republics, and very quickly growing market economies.
It is often indicated that Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia have little else in common other than their geographic proximity, similar small size, and to lesser degree, a shared recent history. In the Cold War context, the three countries were considered a part of Eastern Europe, but culturally and historically, it is more appropriate to view the "Lutheran Protestant" Finnic-speaking Estonia and, to a lesser degree, northern parts of Latvia as belonging to Northern Europe, and "Catholic" Lithuania and other parts of Latvia as belonging to Central Europe, where the historical impact of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the Russian Empire, and the German Empire have been of crucial importance. For Estonia and northern parts of Latvia, historical connections to the Teutonic Order, Hanseatic League, Sweden and Denmark have been important.
