Confetti Fields

Confetti Fields

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all doing well and starting to make plans for the summer?

Last week I had a lovely afternoon out at the Confetti Fields in Pershore! This has been something I have wanted to do for years now, which sounds really silly but the Confetti Fields are only open for 1 week in the year so you have to be really lucky to book tickets!

This place is only open for such a short period of time due to the Confetti Fields actually being a company that grows these beautiful flowers, then they harvest them to create the most gorgeous confetti for weddings, parties, christenings, you name it – hence the name Confetti Fields – clever right? haha. 

There is a huge field full of larkspur which can be seen in these photos, but there was also a smaller field full of wildflowers including cornflowers and poppies, which really attracted a lot of bees and butterflies which is always great to see!

I believe that the Confetti Fields will open again very briefly in August for a sunflower field – who doesn’t love sunflowers and their gorgeous brightness? I know I do. The Confetti Fields do have a website where you can see more gorgeous photos just like mine, but also you can access their shop for any of your confetti needs. 

I absolutely love this idea as the confetti is 100% biodegradable and smells absolutely divine, instead of paper or plastic confetti that will stay on the planet forever! I did buy a small bag of confetti while I was there – currently it’s sat on my desk giving off a lovely smell but I will put it to some good use. 

I have a few stresses going on right now with Covid, awaiting uni results etc. etc., like everyone else. The world can be full of stresses but visiting the Confetti Fields really took my mind off all of life’s worries for a few hours, proving that nature and fresh air really can work wonders! 

I hope you all enjoy your summer and make the most of the lovely weather we’re expecting! Look after yourselves and I’ll speak to you all next week.

Amelia 🙂
