Our freeze dried petals are an eco-friendly, all natural, biodegradable product produced in a facility which uses wind and hydro generated electricity. This is a 100% earth friendly item which can be used in lieu of rice, birdseed or bubbles. These also make wonderful table decorations and for your flower girl toss as they are not as likley to stain fabrics as fresh rose petals will.
Please order at least 3 weeks before your event date in order to ensure your petals arrive in time. We can not process orders less than 3 weeks before your event.
How to Use:
Do not place these in the freezer! Store at room temperature only. While they will not become as soft as a fresh petal, they can reabsorb moisture and become slightly softer and more pliable. The easiest way to soften the petals is to place them in a bathroom while taking a shower. This can sometimes brighten the color of darker petals. To some degree, the longer the freeze dried rose petals are exposed to the moisture, the softer they will get. However, too much moisture can damage the petals. Remember, they have gone through a complicated process just to get them dry. If the humidity in the air is normal or high, this procedure can be done within a few days before the event to achieve your desired effect. If the air is dry, the petals may not soften or will quickly dry out again. For most uses, such as table decoration and aisles, softening is not necessary.
Please do not place these in water; they just do not do well in water. While they will float, they will quickly reabsorb water. When this happens, they will discolor and lose their shape. You will soon be left with soggy, shapeless petals.
