Tropical Summer Confetti Mix of the Month

We're all about the bright, cheery and fun colour palettes that a summer wedding has to offer. It's the best season for adding bold pops of colour to your special day. Our Pick and Mix confetti allows you to create your own unique combination of petal confetti to match your colour scheme no matter the season. You can go wild with our petal colours as there are absolutely no rules when it comes to choosing your biodegradable petal confetti mix.


We recently got inspired by a beautiful mix one of our couples made; we loved it so much, we decided to use it as July's Confetti Mix of the Month. This tropical mix will pair perfectly with the cheerful smiles and happy energy of your summer wedding.

Summer wedding inspiration

When we look at this biodegradable confetti mix, we see the orange glow of the hot summer sun and the beauty of the glistening sea on a summers day. The dainty pinks, cool blues, bright oranges and sandy creams make it the ultimate celebration of colour, ideal for as summer wedding, or even a destination wedding abroad too.

It's a stunning combination of Icing Sugar, Candy Floss, Cherry Blossom, Duck Egg Blue Hydrangea Petals and Clementine Rose Petals, which are all natural, biodegradable and eco-friendly. As this mix contains small and large petals, it's got a fantastic mixture of textures and fall rates, giving your wedding photographer lots of time to get those all-important confetti photos to celebrate your big day.

We love the idea of pairing this confetti mix of the month with bright yellow and pink floral displays; bunches of our Yellow Craspedia and Candy Floss Delphiniums in glass jars dotted around the ceremony location. Pastel pink & light blue bridesmaid dresses and even beautiful finishing touches like seashells on crisp white tablescapes, multicoloured tapered candles and pink napkins to add to the decor. You could carry on this theme from the visual into tropical tastes and smells too, with a zesty orange wedding cake and signature cocktail like a Caribbean rum punch to complete the day. Visit our Colourful Summer Wedding board on Pinterest for more inspiration.

Biodegradable confetti display options

When it comes to displaying your confetti to wedding guests we have a huge range of choices from our individual and personalised sachets, to stunning conesconfetti baskets, chic pailspops and so much more!

Our white individual sachets look particularly great with this mix, we fill each sachet in the petal shed (one less job for you to worry about!) with a handful of your chosen biodegradable eco-friendly confetti made from real flowers grown on our Shropshire farm. Simply place them on each guests chairs the morning of the wedding, or attach them to your order of service. All the petals are safely contained inside so your guests don't need to worry about damaging the delicate petals when holding them.


For those of you planning a destination wedding these are particularly great as they will take up very little space in your suitcase.

If you're looking for a less traditional way to present your confetti then our confetti pops are certainly a fun alternative! Each pop holds a handful of biodegradable confetti and are so easy to use; simply pop the top, hold them high and throw the confetti as the newly-weds pass by. They make for a wow factor confetti shot and are a lovely feature when placed together in our Confetti Pop Box.

These fantastic little pops can be reused again and again, or recycle them once you've finished with them.

Why use petal confetti?

Petal 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 for reviews from our customers.
