Choosing your Petal Confetti - Tips & Advice: Focus On - Confetti Cones.

The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company's Wedding Confetti Cones

So you've chosen your own special mix of flower petal confetti - www.confettidirect.co.uk - but how are you going to make sure all of your guests get some for the big confetti throw?

By far the most popular way of handing out real petal confetti is by using pretty paper cones - fill each one with a handful of petals and each guest has their confetti ready for the big moment!

Clare and Dan's Confetti moment!

Our lovely handmade Confetti Cones are easy, simple and they look really pretty.
Sold in Packs of 10 - you will need 1 Pint of Petals to fill 10 Cones. Nice and straight forward!
A pack costs £9.50 and it will arrive made up and ready to go - no fussing about with glues and paper rolling!

The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company has loads of different types of cone for you to choose from,  including personalised confetti cones, patterened confetti cones, map cones, brown paper cones and a great range of different colours and textures. The style of confetti cone you choose can transform the look of your confetti - so there is sure to be something to suit everyone!

Ideas to Spoil your Loved One this Valentine's Day - from The Real Flower Petal Confetti Co

Happy St Valentine's Day!

We thought we'd share this love this year with some simple ideas for making your special someone's day that little bit more wonderful....

Available from Biscuiteers

A sprinkling of rose petals makes the Champagne taste that little bit better!
Use our Light Pink Coloured Rose Petals to achieve this look - buy here




And if you're planning to propose then red rose petals are a must!

We recommend the classic romance of our Small Natural Rose Petals
 
Get creative around your home and say "I Love You" in truly romantic style - if you are planning something similar please share your photos on our Facebook Page!





You can't beat a bit of baking to really show how much you care. A super chocolatey cake will hit the spot and if your decorating skills are limited then just add a few petals!



If you're a pretty good cook then these pretty little heart shaped macaroons are to die for!


Find the recipe here

 Or how about a heart shaped pizza - wouldn't you feel so special if someone made this for you!?




And don't forget lunch!




If you're planning a romantic night in then think about the little extras - easy decorations can be created with a little imagination... Here we used our Cerise Large Rose Petals.






Or if you'd rather just snuggle up together on the sofa - home made hot chocolate is just perfect - use a sweet cutter to make the marshmallow hearts (there's a recipe here).



Or for the ultimate treat - why not run your Valentine a lovely hot bath and sprinkle real rose petals in the water, with scented bath oils, candles and a bottle of bubbly - if you're lucky you might get invited to join them!
