Frequently Asked Questions
1. WHY USE FREEZE DRIED PETALS?
Enhance your wedding day with the romance of rose petals. Unlike fresh petals, freeze dried rose petals will last for months and can be purchased ahead of time in your required colour choice. Freeze dried petals look and feel just like fresh petals and they hold their shape and colour for many months.
Freeze-dried rose petals have had the moisture removed and are much less likely to stain clothing or floor coverings than fresh petals.
Many venues will not allow decorating with fresh petals due to staining of carpets and table linen making freeze dried petals a great alternative.
Avoid using petals in the rain as they can present a slipping hazard and may stain flooring or carpets.
3. ARE FREEZE DRIED PETALS ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY?
They are completely natural and are biodegradable.
4. HOW MUCH DO THEY COST?
Freeze dried rose petals are sold cellophane bags containing 10 cups of petals. They cost $39.95 inc GST per bag.
1 bag of petals is sufficient to decorate 4 reception tables, 1 bridal table or 1 cake table (depending on how dense the coverage).
1 bag is enough to fill 10 petal cones.
