Confetti inspiration

Get that splash of colour in your wedding photos with the help of a confetti bar – a great idea from Shropshire Petals

Throwing confetti over a newly married couple is one of those long-standing traditions that get all of your wedding party involved. When you see how your photographer has captured that special moment, you will want to display your photo proudly in your home after your wedding day.

There are many types of confetti, from paper and synthetic types to rice and natural petals. There is only one type that will give you an explosion of colour, with a delicate floral fragrance without it being harmful to the environment and animals – Natural Petal Confetti. Couples can choose from a wide range of colours to match or contrast their wedding theme. However, why not let your guests decide on the colour and let them pick from a selection a Confetti Bar!

How to make a Confetti Bar

Take several old jars, vases or anything else you would like to display your confetti in.

1) Choose a however many colours and types of petals you want your guests to throw.

2) Place each colour, or even mixes into each jar.

3) Make a sign to explain what your guests need to do – “pick your own and throw!”

4) On the big day, delegate one of your bridesmaids or ushers to display your confetti bar in your chosen place. For vintage style weddings, why not place them in an old suitcase or small wooden cart. Jars can be placed on a dressed table or even a pretty bench – this is where you can really get creative.

Shropshire Petals grow and produce all of their natural petal confetti on their Shropshire farm. Every petal is 100% bio-degradable and eco-friendly.

Have fun with confetti on your wedding day and have a hoo haa at the Confetti Bar!
