Last year, I was scrolling mindlessly through Facebook when a friend of mine had posted the most beautiful photos of her and her mum wandering through beautiful fields of delphiniums. My curiosity was piqued, where was this wondrous place. A few minutes and a couple of messages later, I was amazed to discover that this place was about ten minutes away. How had I never known about it before?
It was the Confetti Flower Field belonging to The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company, a local company who grow fields and fields of delphiniums along with a few cornflowers. With the simple process of using sunshine and air to dry the petals which are then used as the most beautiful and naturally biodegradable confetti, perfect for that special day.
Over the last few years, they have opened the fields to the public for days each year. A small window of opportunity to experience the real beauty of seeing these wonderful flowers and walk amongst them. They make the most incredible backdrop for photos and it is no surprise that each of the ten days is extremely busy with people travelling for miles to experience the fields for themselves.
You can walk around the flowers, taking in the swathes of colour and then climb up to the viewing platform for a view across the whole field.
Last year, we were blown away. We took my mum as a birthday treat and we fell in love with the place. This year, we decided that it should be our annual birthday outing for Granny and it didn’t disappoint.
The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company is based in a very small village called Wick, just outside of Pershore in Worcestershire. They are a small company and try their best to accommodate everyone. There is a reasonably sized carpark, toilets and a small cafe and it costs £2.50 to go in for adults and children over 5. If you are planning a trip, you will have to be quick as the final day this year is Sunday, but if you are able to visit, it is definitely worth the trip.
If you can get to The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company this weekend or you want to pencil it in for next year, visit the website to find out more about the fields and how you can buy the fabulous confetti they produce.
