In order to keep things as simple as possible we sell our petals by the handful. Therefore, you can simply order as many handfuls as you need.

But if you are finding it tricky to arrive at that number, please head to –

Handfuls might sound like a strange quantity, but it makes it easy to work out how much you need. We don’t talk in abstract weights and measures. You’ve got 40 guests – you need 40 handfuls!

To clarify, we mean a closed handful, not a huge grab of petals that ends up falling all over the floor.

Yes. We only sell 100% real flower petals and they are all totally biodegradable.

All our petals are lovely, and have different characteristics. However, we recommend our Delphiniums and Wildflowers as the best throwing confetti!

Our Rainbow Delphiniums are by far our most popular confetti petals!

We have a dedicated page where you can choose from our bestsellers –

We sell our confetti petals in 10 Handful Bags – this makes it easy to work with and portion out. You can simply order as many as you need.

Of course – we can send you up to 8 confetti petals free of charge. What’s more, you can reclaim the postage costs when you place a future order with us.

Delphinium & Wildflower Petals, Rose Petals, Hydrangea Petals –

These are 100% natural and biodegradable petals with nothing added to them. They are just as they were picked from the flower – they have simply been dried to extend their shelf life. Consequently, there is no need to worry about colour leakage. We have tested our petals thoroughly, and they do not “leak” any colour unless they are sopping wet and rubbed. Certainly, this will not happen even if you throw the petals in the rain! We have never had any complaints about staining from our customers.

Coloured Rose Petals

These rose petals are dyed. That’s why they have such vivid, even colours. And therefore, these petals could leak colour if they are crushed, get wet or are exposed to high humidity. We do not recommend that you place them on surfaces with oil-based paint or varnish finish. With the lighter colours the risk of colour leakage is very small.

In conclusion, if you are at all concerned about colour staining, we would suggest that you choose a 100% natural petal!

We are sometimes asked if we have any discount codes or if we can give free shipping…  As much as we would LOVE to offer free delivery of your petals, we don’t feel it is a fair and transparent way to do business. It costs money to post a package. Any company that offers free shipping is hiding that cost in the product prices. Instead, we promise to keep our postage prices as low as possible, and get your order to you as quickly as we can.

Likewise, businesses that routinely offer voucher codes on their products have simply inflated the pre-discount price. We are proud to offer the best quality petals at the lowest price we can. We want you to know that the price we charge for our petals is honest. Therefore, you know that the savings on our Special Offers page are genuine savings.
