Confetti Tips and Advice – Decorating with Rose Petals

Rose petals are just so romantic! (

Our pretty petals aren’t just for throwing confetti – there are many other uses for petals, at weddings, parties, dinners and celebrations – so we thought we’d share some lovely ideas for decorating your day with Rose Petals.

Our freeze dried and preserved rose petals are ideal for decoration as they are natural, biodegradable, they won’t wilt or fade, stain or get slippery underfoot. They are easy to store and are light and easy to work with. Most of all they look beautiful!

Decorating your ceremony and venue

A simple, romantic and very pretty idea is to line your aisle with a scattering of petals or even create a carpet of rose petals.

A lovely way to create the rose petal aisle is to ask your flower girl to scatter the petals as she walks down in front of the bride. It also symbolises a happy path in married life!

Your flower girl will love the job of scattering petals!

Or you could try for something more adventurous! Here are some great ideas…
