Shropshire Petals launch new Pink Rose Heads

Shropshire Petals

Vintage and DIY weddings are set to be popular again in 2017. Shropshire Petals have just launched their pretty new Pink Rose Heads, which are perfect for adding some DIY styling to vintage or pink themed weddings.

Together with their already popular cream rose heads, peony heads and rose buds, the pink rose heads complement the collection beautifully.

Shropshire Petals share their top 5 ways to using their freeze-dried rose and peony heads.

1. Attached florist wire to the base of rose heads for adding into floral displays or bouquets for longer lasting arrangements.

2. Place rose heads in wheat sheaves with some other dried or fresh flowers for a pretty contrasting natural table centrepiece.

How to pick the ultimate thank you gifts for your wedding party…

It is customary for the bride and groom to buy thank you gifts for the wedding party.
