Decorating with Rose Petals - Ideas and Inspiration from The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company

Confetti Tips and Advice - Decorating with Rose Petals

Rose Petals and Candles - romantic and beautiful wedding decorations

We often say that our pretty petals are just for throwing confetti - there are many other uses for petals, at weddings, parties, dinners and celebrations - so this post aims to show you some lovely ideas for decorating with Rose Petals.

Our freeze dried and preserved rose petals are ideal for decoration as they are natural, biodegradable, they won't wilt or fade, stain or get slippery underfoot. They are easy to store and are light and easy to work with. Most of all they look beautiful!

Decorating your ceremony and venue -

A simple and very pretty idea is to line your aisle with a scattering of petals
