This started as a Wordless Wednesday post but then I couldn’t choose which photo and now its a full blog post.
The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company are based in Pershore about 30 minutes from me. As you can see they grow larkspur and cornflowers from which they make confetti.
I have wanted to visit for some years now but they only open for about 10 days a year when the flowers are looking stunning and I keep missing the opportunity. However, with my youngest and fiancée getting married next June not far from the confetti fields it was the perfect opportunity to make sure we went for a look see last weekend.
Biodegradable confetti is becoming more popular in the UK as many venues prefer not to have to clean up piles of paper confetti or even rice. Our wedding venue is located in a deer park and they have very strict rules that any confetti has to be edible by deer so flowers it is.
The sheer volume and colour was stunning. Aside from poppy and rape fields I have never seen so many flowers growing in one area. Even the wild flowers we saw in Texas were interspersed with lots of grass whereas this is hedge to hedge flowers.
As you can see I took many photos, mostly because I am looking for design inspiration for my embroidery design course. I particularly liked the white larkspur with the cerise in the background. There is something to my eye especially pleasing with the combination of the white flowers and their very green centres.
I foresee some very flowery embroidery design in the future, which no doubt will include my favourite stitch French Knots.
