It may still only be February, but we're already planning our DIY flowers for this years events! Many of our flowers have already been planted, including our bulbs which are already peeping out of the ground. As the weather starts to get warmer and the nights lighter, we spend more and more time in the garden. It's one of our favourite places to be!

If you choose to use Derbyshire grown DIY flowers for your wedding, we'll make sure we get a full understanding of the style and type of flowers you want and discuss your colour scheme (if you have one). We grow seasonal cottage-garden flowers and cannot always guarantee exactly what will be in bloom on a certain date as Mother Nature isn't always that predicatable, but we work hard to ensure you can have the flowers you want or offer you a seasonal alternative.

Please contact us to find out more about our Derbyshire DIY flowers.

We're really excited at Natural Favours HQ to introduce a brand new range of flowery products to our range! We have designed a unique collection of seed paper stationery, beautiful handmade seed paper that will grow flowers once planted.

Our seed paper is tree-free and acid-free, made from the Lotka bush which grows in the Himalayas. The Lotka bush is a renewable resource as it regrows from the same root system from which it is cut. Paper making is a traditional practise in Nepalese villages and we are proud to support this industry. As the paper is made, seeds are added to the mix. The result is a textured tactile paper which is eco-friendly, novel and absolutely gorgeous.

All our designs are customisable for your event and are suitable for a range of uses including save the date, wedding invitations, party invites, memorials, baby showers and more. As we are a small business, we can even design something totally unique at no extra cost if you can't see anything suitable, just drop us an email to [email protected]

We'd love to hear your feedback!

When Sami Tipi invited us to be part of the opening weekend of their brand new venue at Cuttle Brook in Derbyshire we jumped at the chance to work alongside this group of amazing local suppliers. Cuttle Brook is a stunning riverside location, perfect for an outdoor tipi wedding full of natural beauty.

We created a fun vintage style confetti bar for the event using a rustic French apple crate and range of Le Parfait jars. Guests take a mini basket or confetti cone and fill with a selection of natural confetti of their choice. The outcome is a rainbow mix of confetti that will generate some truly amazing and striking wedding photographs of the all important confetti moment!

To create your own confetti bar is easy! We have a range of Le Parfait jars available for hire and can advise you on a suitable selection of natural confetti to fill them with depending on the number of guests attending, just contact us with your requirements

At the end of 2015, we were lucky enough to play a very small part in a beautifully styled winter wedding shoot organised by the fabulous And So To Wed. We sent over some of our white natural confetti and were absolutely thrilled to see the shots that came back.

Our white natural flower petal confetti fit into the winter theme perfectly, looking like gently falling snow. With beautiful styling from Pamela Dunn Weddings in the homely elegance of Riverside Events in Yorkshire, a group of talented suppliers put together a magical styled shoot of handmade items to inspire and motivate all those engaged couples out there. Pop over to andsotowed.com for more images captured by Claire Basiuk.

We can provide a huge range of natural confetti colours, much of which is grown here by us in Derbyshire. Simply let us know your requirements and we'll put a mix together to suit.
