Dark Red Coloured Rose Petals – vividly coloured preserved Rose Petals with the softness of a fresh petal
Burgundy Coloured Rose Petals are quite stunning – they are the perfect choice if you are looking for dark red rose petals. The colour is deep and rich and the petals have a velvety softness. They look and feel like a like a fresh petal, but the clever preservation technique means that they will last for at least 12 months. They won’t wilt or fade, and because they store so well, you can order them well in advance, or keep and reuse them at later events.
These dark red rose petals make great throwing confetti, as well as good value wedding, party and St Valentine’s Day decorations. You can use them to create petal pathways, patterns, wedding aisles and ceremony dressings. The petals number approximately 30 per handful, and, as a result, they throw and scatter very prettily. They will add a shot of rich, warm, romance to your occasion!
- Real, biodegradable rose petals which have been preserved and colour enhanced.
- The preservation technique allows the confetti petals to be bright and evenly coloured, and retain their softness.
- This rose collection is dyed and therefore may leak colour if they are crushed, get wet or are exposed to high humidity; do not place them on surfaces with oil based paint or varnish finish.

You can create petal pathways around your wedding venue, or leading through your home to a romantic moment you have put together. Similarly, you can create patterns, initials, hearts and pretty places to say your vows, with a scattering or arrangement of red rose petals. You can even spell out that big question…! Rose petals are perfect decorations for proposals. You can also decorate the bedroom or honeymoon suite!
