Eco Friendly Confetti – Buy It or Grow It?
For many years natural, biodegradable confetti has been the only type of confetti allowed at many wedding venues. As with much of the wedding planning process we know that it’s probably something you’ve never typed into a search directory before… and probably wont again.
Well I’m pleased to say, there are two simple, straight forward options – buy it or grow it!
Buy from a Sustainable Confetti Farm
The simplest and most popular choice for many is to purchase eco friendly, colour matched confetti in bulk. One of the largest (and one of our favs) online retailers is Shropshire Petals. We asked them to give us the low down on what they sell.
Their tag line is ‘Real biodegradable delphinium and wildflower petals handpicked & handpacked on our Shropshire Farm’. Sounds good to us!
Natural, Eco-friendly and Biodegradable
Every year, we harvest all of our own petals from our gorgeous flower fields in the rolling hills of Shropshire. All of our petals are 100% natural, eco friendly and biodegradable, just like blossom falling from a tree! They are all completely natural in colour, no dyes are ever added and they’re delicately handpicked and lovingly packed for your perfect ‘confetti moment!’
Colourful Confetti Mix
Our trending confetti mixes depends on seasonal wedding trends! Whilst some couples would opt for a delicate and subtle pastel pink mix such as Candy Floss, our spring couples quite often go for a more vibrant mix such as Tutti Fruity, to ensure their photographer captures a stunning and colourful confetti moment shot. Please visit our blog to discover what confetti mix best matches your theme.
Eco Conscious Packaging
We have a wide range of packaging options too, from our gorgeous Kraft Shropshire Box – the perfect addition to any boho wedding. To our lovely personalised confetti cones, ensuring your guests maintain a good social distance, whilst still having the ability to part-take in that all important confetti moment photo.
Grow Your Own Confetti
A trend that we’ve seen grow in popularity over recent years is the ‘grow you own’ option.
Natural petal confetti is biodegradable, natural and completely eco friendly. And it’s this time of year that is perfect for making it. Late Summer sees most flowers in bloom and especially roses, which are the staple of most confetti.
Making your own can be cost effective, but can be time consuming. Check out this great post on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings on how to grow and dry your own.
But what if don’t have any of the right type or colour flowers growing in your garden…
If you’ve a notice gardener and looking for inspiration, we love this kit from London based, The Gluttonous Gardener.
Included in the handy letterbox sized kit is a trio of seed packs, including Larkspur, Cornflower and Clary, all English country garden favourites, chosen for their beautiful colour, delicate petal shapes, and how easy they are to dry.
We think it would also make a great engagement gift.
