Throw some petals and shout hooray!
 
The past 20 years have seen enormous changes in the wedding industry, but very little has changed at The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company. We’re proud to say our Delphinium Confetti prices have never increased! Instead we have perfected our craft so that we continue to offer excellent value. The key ideals of quality and sustainability remain at our heart, and providing every happy couple with their perfect bespoke mix of petals continues to be our daily task.

We are very proud to be the UK’s original confetti farmers. The Wyke Manor Family Estate has been farming for over 250 years, but it was back in the spring of 1997, when considering ideas for farm diversification, that Charles Hudson hit upon the idea of real flower petal confetti. The story of his ‘eureka’ moment – where the petals falling from the bouquet of flowers he was carrying for his wife inspired his idea for biodegradable flower petal wedding confetti - is now quite famous. It started his process of experimentation with different flowers, harvesting and drying techniques that produced the delicate processes we use today. Our petals are still picked by hand and naturally dried, and we now offer a full range of accessories, many lovingly handmade and personalised, allowing us to help every customer organise their magical confetti moment just the way they want!

Greenery - the Pantone Colour of 2017 - Wedding Confetti Ideas from The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company

Pantone have announced the Colour of 2017 to be Greenery 15-0343

(Image: Pantone)


We love this soft shade and think it is remarkably similar to our Green Hydrangea Petals - making them the perfect wedding petal for 2017!

Gorgeous Green Hydrangeas £8.50 a pint


Lovely little clusters of petals make Hydrangeas the prettiest wedding confetti petals. The colour is totally natural and the petals are freeze dried to keep them looking at their best. Hydrangeas are great for wedding confetti, decorations and scattering down the aisle.

Pantone describes Greenery as "refreshing and revitalizing... symbolic of new beginnings" which makes it a great chice for your wedding day! Greenery is "nature’s neutral" and so works well as both the main colour theme to your wedding, and as an accent to other colours. We'd recommend mixing it with White Hydrangeas or Cream Roses for a sophisticated look, or with soft shades of pink roses for a more feminine feel.

Ideal for flower girls to scatter! Basket of Petals £34.00
