With more & more wedding venues prohibiting the use of traditional tissue wedding confetti, dried petals have become an increasingly popular choice by brides. Dried petals are eco-friendly ... they're 100% natural & biodegradable making them a great alternative to traditional wedding confetti.

Our dried petals are an elegant confetti that makes the perfect accompaniment for your big day. Ideal for use as throwing confetti, but also great for table decoration, or flower girl baskets too.


Delphinium & Wildflower Confetti

This is not a budget confetti - it is a luxury product. So, what is it that makes our confetti special ...

This is not like creating something in a mould in a factory. The delphinium & wildflowers are purpose grown on a farm right here in the UK.

They are handpicked to minimise bruising & air dried naturally so the petals keep their colours beautifully with no dyes added.

There's a lot of time, care & hard work goes in to create our luxury wedding confetti.

These are real dried delphinium & wildflower petals.

The petals are pesticide-free, the colours are natural (no dye added) & the confetti is naturally perfumed.

They're better for the environment & are generally accepted by churches / venues.


The petals are measured in litres.

They're measured in a good old fashioned kitchen measuring jug ... loosely filled with petals to the 1/2 litre or 1 litre mark (they are not pressed down as this will damage the petals), the jug is tapped repeatedly to allow the petals to settle, topped up & repeated as necessary until settling stops ... then gently tipped into its packaging ready for dispatch.

Why are they measured in litres rather than weight?

Petals vary in weight depending on their size & the type of petal - plus other factors can influence the weight too, so volume is a much more reliable measurement.

As a very rough guide 1 litre weighs approx 16/18 grams.

1 litre will fill around 10 standard confetti cones (or 10 handfuls) ... depending on how generous you want to be.

Standard cones are roughly around 17 cm tall x 5 cm across the opening at the top - they hold around 100ml volume. 

Our regular sized confetti cones hold 100ml of delphinium petal confetti.

FYI ...If you already have your cones, you can test the volume by filling with a dried food (such as rice) & tipping into a measuring container to read the volume.

Please be aware if you are purchasing flat-packed manufactured cones for DIY assembly, these are often quite large - so will require more petals to fill (sometimes they require 50-100% more volume to fill).

As a guide - generally only around half the guests throw confetti (usually the ladies!)


The dried petal confetti will normally keep for up to one year ... but they must be stored carefully. We advise they be stored in a cool, dry place out of direct light. The light will fade your petals & humidity encourages the petals to biodegrade.


If you're looking to purchase your petals now, but your wedding's not for a few months, you can ask us to delay dispatch & we'll post your petals 4 weeks prior to your wedding date (or 8 weeks if you're international). That way you can tick a job off the list without having to worry about storage of your petals & you'll know that you'll have 'fresh' petals that look great on your big day.
