Dainty glassine envelopes filled with birdseed for an eco-friendly confetti toss


Glassine envelopes of birdseed confetti

Happy Bank Holiday Monday everyone!  I hope you’ve had a great weekend so far and are enjoying the extra day off from work and that the sun is shining for you.

You may have read my previous post on this apple farm wedding (if you haven’t, you must go have a look), well there was another idea from that wedding that I really wanted to share.  The couple chose birdseed as their confetti and packaged them up in these dainty little glassine envelopes with a pretty label.

I love the idea of birdseed confetti because like flower petal confetti it either bio-degrades or in the case of birdseed gets eaten up by the local bird population.  With some churches and venues reluctant to have confetti because of the misinterpreted ‘mess’ it will cause (and I completely understand why you wouldn’t want that old kind of plastic confetti blowing about) choosing an option like birdseed of dried flower petals is a great alternative.

If you are looking for real petal confetti do check out our Confetti section on the directory for a list of fabulous suppliers who grow and produce their petal confetti right here in the UK.
