    Ive read so many threads on here about how many rose petals you might need for the isle way and i found this information on www.save-on-crafts.com where they also have great prices on freeze dried flower petals! Hope this will help some brides, It sure did help me a lot!


    Number of Petals PER CUP will vary depending on the variety. The "average" number of petals per cup is 35-40.

    We recommend 1/2 cup per toss and 1 to 3 cups per table as accent. To create an aisle with petals on the edges, assume 24 cups for a 20 foot path; for heavier coverage use 2 to 3 cups per foot.

    You can soften your rose petals if you choose by placing the open container into a steamy bathroom for 20-30 minutes. You can do this several days or several hours before ...whichever you prefer.

    Aisle, Path, Tabletop or Bed (To make a heart on a bed for a honeymoon suite) :

    1 cup per square foot for light coverage.
    1.5 cups per square foot for light plus coverage.
    2 cups per square foot for moderate coverage.
    3 cups per square foot for heavy coverage creating a "blanket" of rose petals.
    Flower Girl Baskets: 4-6 cups per girl
    Wedding Farewell: 1/2 cup per guest if using
    cones or sachets.

    Wedding Farewell: 1 cup per guest if using a
    basket for guest to help themselves.

    To decorate tables you will need from 1 to 3 cups per table. Reception tables: 5-6 cups per 60" round table For light scattering around just the center of the table use 3 cups or so.

    Path & Bath: 20-60 cups to create a path of rose petals to a candle filled bathroom and to float rose petals in the bath.

    Romantic Evening: 20-60 cups depending on the bed size & the coverage you are looking for...light to complete!

    Beautiful premium quality freeze dried rose petals that look fresh. 100% natural They will not wilt or stain under normal conditions. They are not slippery in normal conditions. And are completely biodegradable. The beauty of fresh rose petals & none of the problems. They can last for years, not just hours!
