    I've been buying roses whenever they're reduced in Tesco recently and already have a huge old-fashioned sweetie jar full of dried petals. You can also microwave them on kitchen roll for about 2-3 minutes in 30 second blasts, which works REALLY well!

    I've got a fan oven and I'm worried that they'd blow all over the oven.

    I'm thinking of doing this too as our venue doesn't allow normal confetti

    Can't wait until the day I become Mrs. Johnson :)
