Church Confetti focus on producing eco-friendly, biodegradable and sustainable products that have only positive impacts on the environment. Their uniquely growing ‘’I Flower’’ rustic favours and stationery are made from recycled paper, impregnated with wildflowers seeds. These are very easy for your loved ones and friends to grow after the big day. They will be rewarded with dainty, sweet scented flowers to remind them of you and your wedding, as well as allowing the honeybees to pollinate in your eco-friendly loveliness. The butterflies will love you, too! The paper is handcrafted from natural recycled paper and then impregnated with the seeds. I Flower is available in a selection of plantable shapes. You can create favours, menus, invitations, save the date cards, thank you notes and place settings. And, yes ... you can customise the stationery with your own artwork and fonts!
Forget standard confetti if you’re considering the environment. Freeze dried flowers are the new black when it comes to wedding décor! Many venues prefer them as they don’t stain valuable timber and carpeting, even if there’s a splash of rain. They’re also completely biodegradable and available in a range of natural colours. They won’t wilt and they won’t cause guests to slip; they don’t need to be kept frozen and yet they will last for months ... meaning you can order in advance and ticket something off your to-do list. Picked and preserved at the peak of their blooming, the freeze dried roses from Church Confetti are available in a range of colours, from ivory and yellow, through plum and magenta, to hot pink and rouge, and many more in between. You can also custom blend or choose from one of the already blended packs. A standard pack each contain 10 cups of rose petals. Sprinkle them on your tables, line your aisle, or fill baskets for the flowergirls and guests to toss instead of paper confetti. The options are endless.
Like the idea of freeze petals but not a fan of roses? Consider freeze dried hydrangea petals. Hydrangeas have always been a popular flower for weddings, but they have a very limited flowering season. By freeze drying them, Church Confetti has ensured that’s no longer an issue! The natural watercolour shades will generally compliment any theme - choose from powder blue, lime green, white or the lilac and white harlequin shade. As with the rose petals previously detailed, there’s no need to keep them chilled, they won’t wilt, they are less likely to stain, and they’re biodegradable. Consider placing petal cones filled with hydrangeas at each place setting - they will look amazing, plus your guests will get to partake in your arrival at the reception by showering you in petals! Spill them from cups or beautiful bowls, fill a birdcage, or create a floral runner and dot with tealights in glass votives. See - it’s not hard to be kind to the environment and still have a beautiful wedding with all the trimmings!
