Confetti Cannons are fast becoming the new confetti craze, especially when filled with natural petal confetti. Earlier this year, Shropshire Petals launched their fantastic, fun Confetti Cannons. Holding the same amount of confetti as it would take for 10 guests to throw, customers loved them so much they suggested a smaller version should be available too.

So, Shropshire Petals has just launched a Medium Confetti Cannon. Filled with 0.3 litres of confetti, around 3-5 handfuls, they’re perfect for getting more of your guests to fire during your confetti moment.

Wheat Wedding Bouquet

Wheat Wedding Styling Ideas

Including simple touches of nature is the ideal way to add a chic, rustic feel to your wedding day, and what could be more natural than wheat? Not only does it look beautiful on its own or combined with fresh and dried flowers, it is extremely versatile too. Shropshire Petals shares five wheat wedding styling ideas for your big day.

Wheat Wedding Bouquets and Buttonholes

Wheat sheaves make wonderful alternative wedding bouquets. They don’t wilt and will last for years, making the perfect wedding keepsake to display in your home to remember your day.

Wheat Wedding Bouquet

Choose from a pre-made wheat sheaf including dried flowers in a range of different colours, or get creative and make your own using a natural wheat sheaf as the base. Add fresh or dried flowers, and ribbon around the stems, styling your wheat wedding bouquet to suit your wedding theme.

Complete the look by choosing wheat buttonholes for your groomsmen and wheat posies for your bridesmaids and flower girls.

Wheat Wedding Aisle Styling

Make your wedding aisle look spectacular by decorating it with wheat. Attach small posies of wheat and lavender, tied with ribbon in your colour scheme, to pew ends or chairs. You could create your own aisle using wheat sheaves with a scattering of natural petal confetti in between to make a rustic petal path.

Wheat Wedding Table Décor

Wheat sheaves or wreaths look wonderful when used as centrepieces on your reception tables. Surround them with elegant candles and tea lights to add some soft lighting.

Cream Rose and Lavender Wheat Sheaf Table Centrepiece

If you’re having long tables, place several different wheat sheaves down the centre to create one long centrepiece. Complete the look by attaching wheat wreaths to the ends of your long tables, using them as an alternative way to display your table names or numbers.

Finishing Touches

Create simple yet stylish place settings by tying a few wheat sprigs together with some lavender. Tie a handwritten name tag on for guests to find their seats.

Wheat and Lavender Posies

Add a touch of décor to windowsills and other areas around your venue by placing wheat sprigs in glass mason jars with ribbon or hessian tied around. Make your own decorations by creating small bunches of wheat, lavender and dried delphiniums to attach to staircases, marquee poles or even the backs of chairs for your ceremony and reception.

Wheat Wedding Gifts

Give your parents and bridal party wheat sheaves or wreaths as thank you gifts rather than fresh flowers. They will last for years and you can add personalised touches for each recipient. This will give them a memento of your wedding day after the celebrations are over.

Country Garden Wheat Wreath

Wheat is the perfect way to include a touch of nature on your wedding day. Shop the full range at www.shropshirepetals.com.
