Welcome to Confetti Petals – Grown not Flown
Confetti Petals offers a stunning range of natural real flower petal confetti for your wedding or event, along with fresh or dried wedding flowers which we grow on our 23 acre farm in North Warwickshire. Confetti Petals only sell Flowers or Confetti we have grown! We mainly use delphiniums in a range of 9 colours from the palest pinks to the most vivid blues.
We add to our range then using native wild flowers and some surprising garden flowers which allows us to offer confetti in so many various and beautiful colours. All our natural confetti petals are hand picked and dried naturally and they are the only truly 100% biodegradable confetti.
Why do we love natural confetti?
Since the 1930’s changes in farming methods have led to a huge decline in our wild flower meadows in the countryside. By purchasing our Confetti Petals you are helping us to restore some of the balance, and we can continue to expand our wild flower meadows, as well as encouraging the bees to feast on the nectar from our delphiniums and larkspur. Our fields resound to the sound of bees, birds and other insects devouring all the goodness that our flowers have to offer all summer long.
The variety of flowers and grasses that are characteristic of wildflower meadows support an array of wildlife, and are especially vital for many of the UK’s insect and butterfly species.
Man-made wildflower meadows have existed in Britain for thousands of years and by planting our flowers and wildflower meadows we are keen to restore the balance. In the time we have been here we already established a have a small colony of rare Snakes Head Fritillaries. 67% of distinctively-patterned fritillaries, which grow in meadows, have disappeared in the last few decades. Common plants like yellow rattle are in decline, but we are introducing them into our meadows to keep the grasses at bay, green winged orchids are also a rare sight.
Lesser butterfly orchids and greater butterfly orchids have also declined by 60% and 47% respectively. The farm is being developed to be as self-sufficient as possible with all green waste recycled for use as mulching material or as compost. Natural predators are encouraged for pest control and only natural fertilizers are used. Our Confetti Petals are doing their bit to support the planet!
