unconfetti

derivation; noun
confetti thrown at divorce parties.
 
The term was most likely coined as a jibe on divorce parties, which occur right after a divorce. Since people throw confetti at wedding parties, the person who coined it thought it made sense to do the opposite at divorce parties.
Etymology : un- 'not', from O.E. un- + confetti 'small bits or streamers of brightly colored paper made for throwing', from It. pl. of confetto 'sweetmeat'
