2023 Pantone Colour of the Year Inspired Confetti Mix
very excited to bring to you our first Confetti Mix of the Month for 2023. This
particular mix has been inspired by Pantone's Colour of the Year 2023, Viva Magenta. An expressive mixture of red and pink
with blue and purple undertones.

"Viva Magenta is brave and fearless, and a pulsating colour
whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new
narrative." – Pantone
According to Pantone Colour Institute's research,
the colour is already being used among the fashion and beauty
community, so we have a feeling you will start to see it in weddings too. Hence
why we were inspired by this standout colour to create a bold
biogradable confetti mix for those looking for an eye grabbing hue.
Plus, we love the fact that this colour promotes a joyous and
optimistic celebration. We always say it's not a celebration without confetti!
Create a Statement Confetti Moment
This stunning eco-friendly confetti
mix is a combination of real dried delphinium petals, cornflowers, and rose
petals. We've blended Cherry Blossom delphiniums, Lovely Lilac and Burgundy
Berry cornflowers, Lady in Red and Burgundy rose petals to create this striking
combination. A rich and powerful mix of the month, perfect for couples
planning a bold and fearless wedding in any season. We know it will bring much warmth and richness to any confetti shot, especially among neutral colours.
It will also work in harmony with delicate
styling, we can envision used as table confetti. Sprinkled on crisp white
tablescapes paired with magenta toned card stock place names etched in white
foil, floral centrepieces containing sprigs of evergreen foliage, roses or
dahlias, magenta napkins, and elegant white tapered candles.
Including Viva Magenta in Your Wedding Day
We think the key to incorporating
Viva Magneta tastefully into your wedding day is using it as an accent hue
rather than a dominating colour. With such a bold tone less is defiantly more
so think about working it into your wedding invites, making it a focal point of
your flowers, or if you are having your bridesmaids in mismatched colours incorporate it here.
Here's our Pinterest inspiration board, especially for this rich confetti mix.
How to Display Your Wedding Confetti
What better way to personalise your wedding than
with your very own confetti
cones with your name, wedding date and
having it all matched to your wedding theme?
Our lace personalised cones with white detail
compliments this mix perfectly, adding to the expressive colour pop. We offer
15 unique designs, so there is something for everyone's theme.

If you're going for a more modern look our personalised
sachets or individual sachets are a
fantastic choice. They arrive with you prefilled and all you have to do is
either place them on your guests chairs the morning of the wedding or have them
attached to your order of service.

Alternatively, if you're planning a barn wedding
it's worth considering something more traditional and rustic like our Confetti
Basket, or even a Flower
Girl Basket or two.
How Much Confetti Do I Order?
Our handy confetti
calculator will let you
know how much you need for your big day! Simply input how many wedding guests
you have coming and follow the recommendation. After many years of throwing confetti, we find 1 litre
of confetti is around 10-12 handfuls, or up to 20 handfuls for children. Just
remember, you know your guests more than anyone, so if you think everyone is
going to throw confetti, make sure to get enough for everyone (or a little more
if you fancy having a few confetti throws!) alternatively if you think around
half your guests might throw you can always go for a smaller amount.

When Should I Order Confetti?
Our petals delphinium and wildflower petals will
actually keep for around 12 months, where as our larger petals like roses or
hydrangea for up to 3 months, so to keep it simple if you order over 3 months
away from your big day you can select our Delayed Delivery service. That means,
you order whenever you know what you want, we keep it save and secure in our
Petal Shed on the Shropshire Petals farm and around a month before your big day
we send it out to you via Royal Mail (or Parcel Force).#

if your wedding is less than 3 months away you can order right away and have
everything delivery straight away. We also have an express delivery for last
minute orders too, for those last-minute emergencies. Don't forget the confetti!
Why Use Biodegradable Petal Confetti?
confetti is the preferred choice of so many wedding venues across the UK,
Europe and around the world. Our confetti is made from real flower
petals, grown, dried and dispatched from our family farm in Shropshire.
All our petals are eco-friendly as they come from nature, they're grown not
made. They're much more sustainable than paper, as the flowers only take a few
months to grow as opposed to paper that takes years to grow trees, plus our
petal confetti doesn't require any processing, unlike paper confetti. Best of
all, it's biodegradable, meaning no one needs to clean up after you and it's
non-harmful to the environment either. The petals are dye-free, beautiful and
recommended by real couples, take a look at our Feefo
from our customers.
We hope you feel inspired by our new Mix of the
Month and are as excited about it as we are!
