The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company's Confetti Flower Field, Wick, Pershore, Worcestershire 2015

The Confetti Flower Field is currenlty CLOSED.
*Opening dates for 2018 will be announced early in 2018.
The Confetti Flower Field 2015 - our biggest ever!


A path winds through the colourful flowers with beautiful views to Bredon Hill

This year we planted a 26 acre field and opened up to the public properly for the first time in 10 years - we wanted to share the magical experience of wandering through the flowers.... it was a huge success and we met some lovely people!

Sadly the flowers only bloom for a few weeks and they are now all over for this summer. If you didn't manage to make it over to see us be sure to put a note in your diary for the first week of July 2016!

On Sunday 5th July Wick village opened up it's gardens for charity under the National Gardens Scheme and the Confetti Flower Field was the star attraction - despite the rain!


Can you spot the unbrellas?!



Our happy band of helpers!


The pickers have now finished getting in the harvest of confetti petals and we are busy drying and storing the confetti ready to be sent out to weddings around the world.


The very first petals to be harvested in 2015!

We pride ourselves on the quality and fabulous natural colour of our petals and we mix them all up by hand to each customer's bespoke wishes. This year we added personalised confetti cones to our selection of packaging and so it's even easier to create your own unique confetti moment - the perfect way possible to celebrate your first few moments together as a married couple!

Hannah and Alex's confetti moment!

If you are interested in coming to see us next year then join us on Facebook and keep an eye out for updates in June 2016. The flowers are usually at their best the first week of July, but it's all very weather dependant. And remember that we are a 1000 acre farm and we rotate our crops so the flowers won't be in the same place they were this year!!

Visiting The Confetti Flower Field 2015

The Confetti Flower Field is currenlty CLOSED.
*Opening dates for 2018 will be announced early in 2018.

We are delighted to announce that The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company's Flower Field will be open to the public from Wednesday 24th June - Sunday 12th July 2015!


The flowers with Pershore Abbey in the background

Here is all the information you need to know:
  • The field is open daily from Wednesday 24th June through until Sunday 12th July
  • Gates will open at 11am and close at 7pm each evening.
  • ADMISSION - £2.00 per person.
  • Children under 16 go FREE but must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Sorry - no dogs allowed.

  • Please look for direction signs to the fields in Wick Village or come to The Confetti Office to buy your tickets – we are located on Main Street in Wick – WR10 3NZ – opposite the Church and next to the Manor. Look for the chalk board on the roadside!
  • You will be given directions to the field - it is a short drive down a single track lane or a pleasant 15 minute walk.
  • There is plenty of car parking available next to the flowers.
  • There are 25 acres of beautiful stripes of colours, winding paths and walkways and a lovely natural clover covered viewing bank from where you can get some great photos! If you are lucky and it's quiet you might see some wildlife too...
  • We are expecting the flowers to be in bloom from our opening day of June 24th but this is weather dependant! Most years the display is at it's best around the first week of July, but again it depends on the weather we get. Please call us if you are travelling long distances so we can advise you as to how the flowers are looking.
  • Cool drinks and ice creams are available to buy in the flower fields and refreshments will also be for sale at The Confetti Office.
  • Fresh bunches of flowers will be available to buy.
  • Are you going to a wedding this summer...? Don't forget your confetti! We sell our beautiful confetti petals all year round - from The Confetti Office or online www.confettidirect.co.uk

  • We would then direct you to Pershore where you will find lots of great cafes, pubs and restaurants for lunch or an evening meal, and plenty of independent shops and other interesting tourist attractions.
  • The nearest train station is PERSHORE on the main London line. Public transport to Wick is not great, so we would recommend a taxi if you don't fancy the 4 mile walk! 
  • Buses come to Pershore regularly from Worcester and Evesham and drop you in Broad Street, Pershore. The walk from there is more a pleasant 1.5 miles across the river meadows to Wick. 


 Please note -  
  • When The Confetti Office is not open there will be signage to direct you to the field where you can buy a ticket at the gate.
  • Please remember this is a farm field and we recommend you wear suitable footwear and a hat and suncreen when it is sunny. There is very little shade in the field.
  • The field is quite bumpy and unsuitable for wheelchairs and buggys. Please give us a call if you have any questions.
  • The Confetti Flower Field is part of Wyke Manor Farm and situated on private property.


  • On Sunday 5th July 1.30 - 6pm Wick is hosting a NGS Gardens Open Day for charity. 12 village gardens will be open to view as well as the Confetti Flower Field. Admission is £5.00 (children free) and this includes a free minibus service around the village and to the field. There will be refreshments available in gardens and plants for sale.

Photographs from previous year's Confetti Flower Fields -

We thought we would mention that this year's Countryfile Calendar is entitled 'Colours of the Countryside'. We think our field fits this brief rather well! If you get some fabulous photos why not enter their competition?!
And please also share your picture with us on our Facebook page!


PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS & FILM CREWS -
  • Please call Nancy on 01386 555045 if you would like to shoot or film in our fields.


We look forward to seeing you soon!

A Guide to Choosing Your Confetti Cones from The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company

A Guide to our Beautiful Handmade Wedding Confetti Cones

Alison & Richard's fabulous Confetti Cones!


The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company now has a fabulous range of 13 different styles of Confetti Cones - so we've put together a handy guide to help you choose yours!

Confetti Cones are really popular with our customers looking for a pretty and easy way to get the wedding confetti petals to their guests ready for the big moment - fill each one with a handful of petals and everyone has their confetti ready for the big moment!
Place them in a basket or one of our special boxes and they can either be handed round by a bridesmaid, friend or family member, or be left somewhere convenient for guests to help themselves. 


Personalised Confetti Cone Baskets waiting outside the church

What you need to know:
  • All our Confetti Cones are sold empty in Packs of 10 and cost £9.50
  • You will need to buy 1 Pint of Petals to fill 10 Cones
  • Your Confetti Cones will arrive assembled - simply place a handful of petals in each cone. We usually suggest giving this job to a bridesmaid or your mum/mother-in-law and doing it the evening before the wedding, or perhaps in the morning if there's time!
  • We recommend our Delphiniums & Wildflowers and Small Rose Petals as the best wedding petals for your confetti cones - both will sit prettily in the cones and both flutter really well for the big moment!
  • If you choose our Personalised or Patterned Confetti Cones you'll need to allow a little extra time for delivery as they are made up to order especially for you. (See our website for more info)
  • All of our cones measure approximately 17cm in height and 5cm across at the opening
  • BUY HERE!

Wedding Day Confetti Cones - Personalised with your names and wedding date

Confetti Baskets and Boxes - a guide to quantities:

The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company offer three different wedding baskets and a specially designed cone stand you can use to display your confetti cones - all available with our without a ribbon decorated handle.
(You can of course use your own baskets but our guide should help you get an idea of how many Confetti Cones your own basket would hold). 
  • HOLDS 10 CONES - Small White Rectangular Basket - measures L 25cm x W 10cm x H 10cm (H 25cm incl. handle)
  • HOLDS 20 CONES - Oval Basket - measures L 25cm x W 21cm x H 10cm (H 23cm incl. handle) 
  • HOLDS 20 CONES - Rectangular Basket - measures L 26cm x W 20cm x H 12cm (H 31cm incl. handle) 
  • HOLDS 20 CONES - White Cone Stand - measures L 30cm x W 20cm x H 7cm
  • Our Deep Oval Basket is not suitable for Confetti Cones - it's too deep!
Baskets are very traditional and are often used in place of a posy for bridesmaids or flower girls. They can be personalised with flowers, bows and embellishments. The white cone stand is simple and a little more contemporary - the cones stand up in a tray and it really shows them off - great for our new Patterned and Personalised Confetti Cones!

"So how do I choose?!" 

You are sure to have an idea of the colours you want, and perhaps you've already chosen your petal confetti mix - but consider how different Confetti Cones can compliment and enhance your choice. Perhaps you have a Pink and Green theme but would like Delphinium Petals (which don't come in green) as your confetti - choose Green Coloured Confetti Cones to tie it all together.

Different colours and textures of Confetti Cone can transform the look of your confetti - simple and traditional Ivory Parchment Paper Cones will create a different look and style to bright and bold Flower Burst Cones - even with the same petals inside. Think about your wedding style and choose the Confetti Cones that you love best. There are 68 different cone options so there is sure to be something to suit everyone!
