Eco-Friendly Celebrations: Introducing Our Biodegradable Festive Confetti Mix
Winter brings its very own elegance to the wedding industry, as we transition into
eveningwear accompanied by elegant shawls and tuxedos that make a statement.
Christmas and New Year bring a special kind of celebration. Think champagne
saucers, roaring fires, grand staircases, and twinkling lights
galore—everything you'd imagine for the perfect Christmas and more. Imagine the soft sound of piano keys accompanied by a saxophonist as you glide into your wedding reception as newlyweds. What
could be more romantic?
Festive Mix of the Month
Creating your perfect confetti moment is not exclusive to
the summer months,
but also for those enchanting moments that winter brings. Whether you are
blessed with a frosty afternoon where you can have a traditional confetti
moment outside the steps of your church. A moment outside your venue, or if you opt for
a more modern approach at the bottom of a picturesque staircase. There is so much
fun to be had with this magical wedding tradition.
Here in the Shropshire Petals shed we have
curated a beautiful Christmas and New Year-inspired mix, featuring rich reds,
striking blacks, elegant whites, and soft greens to create a sense of sophisticated
glamour for your confetti toss.
Our festive Mix of the Month is composed of our Black Bird Cornflowers, Icing Sugar delphiniums, and Burgundy Berry cornflowers,
with an added burst from our Burgundy rose petals and
Eucalyptus petals. Take a look at our Pinterest board, for more ideas and inspiration for a festive wedding.

So, let's delve into what else to consider for your perfect confetti moment.
you choose biodegradable confetti?
Selecting the right confetti can be a difficult decision,
but one aspect that should always be straightforward is whether or not your
confetti is biodegradable. Choosing eco-friendly and sustainable confetti ensures
that you not only enjoy that magical moment but also contribute to
environmental preservation. Here on the farm our fields are a heaven to wildlife
through the summer months when our flowers are in bloom. Meaning, when you choose
us, you also choose to support our wildlife too! (How wonderful is that?)

What's more, venues love it! Real petal confetti is like the
blossoms falling from a tree. After your big moment, you can rest easy knowing
that the petals will simply dissolve back into nature, where they originated,
leaving no harmful traces behind.
How Much Confetti Do I Need?
This is another
really important question asked by many couples around the world. But don't worry; we are
here to help you! We have a super easy guide to assist you in figuring out the

If you are opting
for our personalised cones, sachets, or pops, we recommend catering enough for
all of your guests to have one each. This way, nobody gets left out, and it
ensures that your confetti throw has the most impact! Alternatively, try adding
a cannon or two to kickstart the celebrations.
