How much do I need?

You could provide confetti for everyone, per couple, or just for close family and friends Ė itís up to you.
Consider where your confetti moment will take place and make sure you have enough petals to ensure you get that perfect picture!

Calculating quantities can never be an exact science as one personís idea of a light scattering or
heavy covering will be different from the next. Our recommendations and guidance are as follows:

Handfuls

1 Pint of Petals is 10 handfuls of confetti.
These are closed handfuls - what a guest can hold whilst waiting for the confetti throw to take place.

We recommend the small natural rose or delphinium petals as throwing confetti.

Confetti Cones, Envelopes & Petal Bags

1 Pint of Petals is enough to fill 10 Cones or or 10 Envelopes or 10 Petal Bags

Baskets

Small White Rectangular Basket will hold:
2 Pints of loose petals, 10 Cones, 10 Envelopes or 12 Sachets

Oval Baskets will hold:
3 Pints of loose petals, 20 Cones, 20 Envelopes, 24 Sachets or 20 Petal Bags

Rectangular Basket will hold:
4 Pints of loose petals, 20 Cones, 30 Envelopes, 30 Sachets or 20 Petal Bags

Deep Oval Basket will hold:
6 Pints of loose petals or up to 40 Petal Bags


Table Decorations

* These quantities are based on 5ft round tables and seating approximately 10 people. We have worked this out on the basis that your table will have plates, cutlery and glasses on the tables.
