BRITISH FLOWERS WEEK | It's home grown natural flower petal wedding confetti today!


Well, the image says it all! 

Who wouldn't want to throw confetti at a wedding when its natural, home grown flower petals we're talking about?

At Shropshire Petals they grow all of their delphinium and wildflowers the farm in Shropshire.  The collection of flowers includes calendula, cornflowers and sunflowers while they're always experimenting with new varieties to add to their petal colour collections. 

And all the flowers they grow on the farm are handpicked and dried for the most eco friendly, pretty and biodegradable wedding confetti you can find! 

Shropshire Petals offer loads of different ways to use their petals and here are a few to choose from:

  • The Shropshire Box, which holds 25 confetti cones.
  • A cream confetti pail. 
  • The Bo-peep basket which holds 20 confetti cones.
  • Beautiful wheat sheaves which are an ideal bouquet or table centrepiece.

Of course the wheat is officially a grain but it's still all grown on the farm and they say it's a big firm favourite for rustic bouquets and deserves a mention here.  

For more information and ideas of how to use natural flower petal wedding confetti, go to Shropshire Petals website - they even have a calculator so you can work out how much to buy based on your number of guests.
