There are so many different ways to use dried flower confetti and the best thing is, its 100% naturally biodegradable! You can make your own biodegradable confetti at home. There’s something quite magical about preparing your own confetti during the build-up to your special day!
Here are a few ideas how to use your biodegradable confetti…
Biodegradable Floral Invitations
Add a little bit of excitement for your guests by putting beautiful biodegradable flower petals in your invitations! However, I must say there’s no point adding a biodegradable element to them if the invitation itself is not eco-friendly! ByJo has some beautiful, eco-friendly options to choose from!
Turn your aisle into a biodegradable floral carpet! A perfect job for your flower girls or boys. This unique touch will add a splash of colour to the beautiful scene and it can make photos look enchanting!
Biodegradable Confetti Cones
Biodegradable confetti cones can be made out of recycled paper or wrapped in the wedding day itinerary for your guests, two in one! To add a semimetal touch, you could wrap your biodegradable confetti in the lyrics to your first dance song so that the memory is treasured!
Throw It All Over The Newlyweds!
A tradition that has happened for centuries to bestow prosperity and fertility to the newlyweds! Sadly, the confetti ends up on the ground when everyone hurries off to enjoy the after party. Wouldn’t it be great knowing that your flower confetti will naturally biodegrade and leave no mark on the environment?
Biodegradable Glassine Bags
Please no organza! Biodegradable glassine bags are definitely the better choice, not only are they biodegradable, they can also be printed on! You could personalise them by printing a love heart, guest names or your wedding day date, making them great wedding favours. A Day To Remember Studio has a range of biodegradable confetti and prints to choose from to put on your glassine bags!
Biodegradable Table Runner
Sprinkle biodegradable flower petals to spruce up your tables! Some types of dried flowers such as roses, lavender and strawflowers can even add a floral fragrance to your venue!
Eco-friendly Photo Prop
You can use dried flower petals as unique photo props by throwing them in the air just before capturing the shot! I can ensure you that the beautiful, biodegradable confetti will make any picture instagram-worthy!
Biodegradable Confetti Poppers
Add a pop of fun to the after party! You can buy or make your own party poppers full of biodegradable confetti. If you choose to buy poppers, try to make sure that they are made with biodegradable material or that they can be re-used after your special day.
Biodegradable Flower Tattoos
A perfect wedding activity for adults and children! Using natural adhesives such as honey or beeswax salve with lavender oil, your biodegradable confetti can be re-used as natural flower tattoos. Hippie in Disguise tells you how to get the perfect result!
