Happy Spring to Everyone! If you are new to my blog - Hi, I am Rose Eads, artist, designer, photograpger and all round creative. I am due to get married in September and I have been making confetti at home for the big day. Using rose petal and carnations ( one of my new favourite flowers to dry ) I have been drying and making confetti. Here's how to do it for your big day too.
Start with buying some flowers that you love. Keep in mind your wedding day colour palette and that each flower will dry differently. I leave them to dry naturally but you can speed up the process by putting them in a warm environment. I bought these roses half price because they weren't as fresh as the others but here they are and only £1.75!
These are some carnations after cutting them fresh off some stems. I left them out to dry in the sun which has made them quite crispy. I mean look at those colours! Aren't they dreamy?! I have had so much fun doing this and plan to dry a lot more flowers. They are so beautiful. Rose petals are quite chunky even when dry so you can chop them if you wish. Add some lavender if you want a strong scent when throwing them on the big day.
I will be doing more posts like this over the next coming months so be sure to pop back for more! Follow my instagram @roseeadsdesign to see more Wedding planning or my Pinterest. Like this post? Have you seen my Gypsophila hair crown post? Take a look!
