Rose petals: the epitome of romance!
Scattering rose petals is a centuries-old tradition. It is considered to be the ultimate symbol of romance and luxury. Rose petals can transform your wedding location into a romantic spot straight out of a fairy tale. They can be used as decoration or to toss over the happy couple. We've done away with the tradition of scattering rice. The simple reason: rose petals are much happier, more beautiful and provide more atmosphere. The message behind the tradition, however, remains unchanged: it conjures associations of fertility and wealth. Visit our website to find out everything you ever wanted to know about rose petals – colours, types and even useful tips.
Colour selection: Will it be Cherry, Chocolate or Champagne?
Now that sounds delicious! A range of exclusive flavours, but not for tasting – this treat is for your eyes only. We have rose petals available in a wide spectrum of colours. In fact, we stock 52 unique shades of rose petals. From pale yellow Champagne to vibrant pink Fuchsia, or even an orange shade of Peach. Or would you prefer the classic luxury of red rose petals? Each and every kind has its own unique look and feel. For example, we carry not only solid-colour petals but also petals with shading on the edges: two colours in one. Bright, vivid hues or soft pastel tints, you decide which atmosphere you'd like to create.
Not just rose petals
White, pink and red rose petals are frequently-chosen colours. But what do they mean? White stands for innocence, for purity and truth. White rose petals represent a new beginning full of hope and respect for one another. Pink, on the other hand, stands for admiration and joy, while red is the colour of true romance. By choosing red rose petals, you are showing that you love and value one another.
Long-lasting enjoyment guaranteed.
Two different methods can be used to treat rose petals in order to make them last longer. Freeze-drying is the most natural way to preserve roses. This technique extracts the moisture from the petals. As a result of this unique process, the petals are 100% biodegradable and retain their beauty much longer than fresh, untreated rose petals. If stored in a dry, dark place, they will keep as long as several months – without losing any of their quality or colour intensity. When rose petals have been ‘preserved’, on the other hand, they can be kept for years. Despite having been processed, the petals retain their silky-soft feel. The shine and colour stay as brilliant as ever and the petals will not wilt. ‘Preserving’ involves replacing the natural fluids in real roses with a special liquid solution. Please be aware that, unlike freeze-dried rose petals, petals that have been preserved may transfer some of their colour to other surfaces.
Decide how many petals you need.
This is the final step. You have already selected the colour and purpose, but how many rose petals do you need? A 1-litre volume of rose petals contains approximately 150-200 individual petals, depending on the colour and size. The weight of the petals is also a factor. Freeze-dried rose petals, for example, are lighter than preserved ones. You can use rose petals in any number of creative ways: as a table decoration, in confetti bags or to scatter along the path to the altar. Want to find out how many litres of rose petals you need?
