March certainly is one of our favourite months, with the days getting much longer and lighter (instantly boosting our moods) as we approach daylight saving time.

With an array of stunning colour palettes and seasonal blooms to choose from, spring is a beautiful time of year to get married. Especially the backdrop it provides for lovely outdoor wedding photographs, and the all-important confetti moment.

To mark this wonderful month of new beginnings we have created a stunning confetti Mix of the Month which can be used any time of the year as all the petals are dried to make them last so much longer than fresh. 

Pastel Pinks, Soft Baby Blues and Botanical Light Greens

This confetti Mix of the Month is a combination of Icing Sugar, Frosted Blue and Cherry Blossom delphiniums, along with Duckegg Blue and Envy hydrangea 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 also love the idea of pairing this confetti mix with our Mini Pink Bouquet and pale-blue bridesmaid dresses, even cheerful  touches such as cute jam jars filled with mini eggs with tags for your place names and pale blue and pink tapered candles to add to the decor.

If you are looking for more inspiration on how to use this colour scheme take a look at the dedicated Pinterest board for this mix.

Top Tips When Throwing Confetti

Capturing a memorable confetti shot to look back on and relive the fun and happiness of that very moment is a must. Here are some tips to make sure your confetti moment is truly epic:

  • Select the right confetti. The best petals for getting a shower of confetti are delphiniums and wildflowers as they're small, lightweight and fall delicately to the ground. Having a few large petals does give that extra colour pop!
  • Order enough for your guests, you want to make sure everyone gets a handful. Visit our online confetti calculator
  • Discuss your confetti shot with your photographer beforehand as they will be able to offer some great insight and advice.
  • Make sure your guests are all standing close together & tell them to throw up high! Not directly at your faces (you would be surprised how many do this).
  • Walk slowly (take it all in, it is a beautiful moment).
  • Finally, remember to smile, laugh together, stop and share a kiss. Enjoy this moment as you celebrate this new beginning.

Displaying your Confetti

When it comes to displaying your confetti to wedding guests we have a huge range of choices from Personalised Sachets, to stunning Cones, Confetti Baskets, chic Pails, Pops and so much more! Our Green Embossed Cones or Personalised Woodland Design Sachets in particular really compliment this mix.

You could choose to display your cones by hanging them on pegs inside an old picture frame for a rustic vintage look or have your confetti displayed in different sized jars creating your very own confetti bar. We have pinned some wonderful ideas on here for you to be inspired by.

How to store your Confetti

Now that you have picked your favourite mix you want to keep it looking it's best for the big day. Our petals are very easy to store, just keep them away from direct sunlight and be sure to keep them cool and dry as the humidity can allow the petals to biodegrade.

Our Delayed Delivery service is great for those of you who would like to order well in advance of the big day and don't want the worry of storing it. It's completely free and we will dispatch your order a month before your wedding, leaving you one less thing to worry about! It's always great to tick another item off the list too!

Eco-Friendly Biodegradable Confetti


All of our petals are 100% natural, eco-friendly and biodegradable, just like blossom falling from a tree! They are all completely natural in colour, no dyes are ever added and they're delicately handpicked and lovingly packed for your perfect 'confetti moment!'. They are hand picked, dried and lovingly packed away ready to be delivered to our wonderful couples all around the world.

We have a wide range of churches and venues who specifically promote Shropshire Petals for our assured quality. If your wedding venue need a little reassurance why not request a confetti sample from us and show it to your venue?
