Sunset Large Natural Rose Petals from The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company

Focus on: Sunset Large Natural Rose Petals

Sunset Large Roses £8.50 a pint

Introducing our new 'Petal of the Season' for Autumn 2014 - 100% natural, biodegradable and just perfect for your autumnal wedding.

Always popular with our autumn brides we thought we'd dedicate our first Petal of the Season post to the beautiful Sunset Large Natural Rose Petal. These delicate petals are freeze dried to retain their gorgeous colour and natural curl and it means that they won't wilt or fade during your wedding day. We call them Sunset because they are a wonderful blend of orange, yellow and pink shades that fade into each other just like a sunset.

There are lots of ways you can use Sunset Rose Petals on your wedding day - add impact and splash of colour to your confetti moment, line your wedding aisle with romantic rose petals, decorate wedding breakfast tables, your cake table, even the dance floor! Don't forget to put together a small basket of petals for your flower girl to scatter in front of the bride - it's very good luck! And remember the honeymoon suite - why not surprise your new husband/wife with a romantic petal strewn bed or bath!?

Baskets of Sunset Rose Petals - the Deep Oval holds 6 pints and the Rectangular 4 pints


Sunset Petals mix well with our Cerise or Golden Yellow Large Natural Rose Petals or you could try them with seasonal leaves or our Skeleton Leaves or even create decorations with seasonal fruits and veg.

Our Orange Skeleton Leaves £5 for 50
 
Or try these other flower petals as alternatives...

Bright Pink Small Natural Rose £11 a pint

A bespoke mix of Coloured Rose Petals £7.50 a pint



Sunset Rose Petals are sold by the pint and cost £8.50.
1 pint contains ten small handfuls of petals to throw. The petals are quite big so there are not as many to the handful as you get with our other confetti petals. We generally recommend Delphiniums or Small Natural Roses as better throwing petals but you can use Sunset Petals and they do look beautiful. However we do not recommend using Large Rose Petals in our Petal Envelopes, Petal Bags or Confetti Cones as the petals will get squashed and spoilt.
1 pint will scatter lightly over one 5ft round table seating 10 people or create a 'ring' of petals over two 5ft round tables.
1 pint will give a light covering over 1/3 of a square metre of a heavier covering over 1/6th of a square metre.
1 pint will create a lightly scattered 6 inch wide line that is two metres long or a denser 6 inch wide line that is one metre long.
We recommend 3 pints to scatter over a king size bed.

Yellow and Blue Wedding Ideas from The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company

Victoria & Steven's Confetti Moment  (Jackson & Co Photography)
 
The stand out wedding colour theme of this summer is yellow and blue - we have never seen so many orders for yellow and blue confetti petals! And by looking at orders for our bespoke sample packs we can see it's a trend that is set to continue into 2015.

Yellow, Blue and Light Blue Coloured Rose Confetti Petals

Depending on the shades you choose yellow and blue can be bright & fun or soft & romantic. It's not too girly or too masculine and it works for different seasons - think daffodils or sunflowers, bluebells or cornflowers. Perhaps that's why it's so popular?

Blue and yellow wedding perfection (lovemydress.net)

In celebration of this trend we thought we'd share some inspiring images to help you plan your yellow and blue big day - and of course lots of yellow and blue confetti ideas...

Confetti mixing tips -
  • Think about sizes and textures - mixing different size petals together looks very different to mixes where all the petals are a similar shape and size.
  • Think about colour ratios - we mix petals in equal parts as standard but if you add more of one colour you can get a very different effect, and it's surprising what a tiny pinch of an extra colour can bring to the blend. It's no trouble to do this at all - please just ask!
  • What are you going to put your petals in? Different packaging suits different petals so have a think before you make your final choices. (For example Golden Yellow Large Roses don't really fit into Sachets, Petal Bags or Envelopes as they get squashed, but they look fabulous loose in a pretty basket). 
  • The packaging is a great way to add colour - we have Yellow Petal Bags and Light Blue Cones that you can use to add an extra splash of colour to your confetti moment.
  • If you are mixing Coloured Rose Petals with natural petals it's best to do this no earlier than the day before they wedding so that all the petals stay looking their best.
  • Remember there is no right or wrong way to do it - it's all about what you like best!

Please share your mixes with us on our Facebook page :-)


And one final suggestion - surely the wedding cake has to be lemon and blueberry?!
