What our Customers Say

5 Stars! Private User said..."We learned about freeze dried petals from a friend and they worked perfectly in our decor as hurricane vase filler, fill in table decor, and flower girl petals. Flyboys' 'bridal budget' section offered lots of color choices, were very affordable, and arrived in better shape than represented in online pictures. The option to get a sample was particularly helpful. We ordered a month in advance, delivery was quick, and after following the easy storage instructions they looked just as great the day of the wedding as the day received." 1.6.2017

Casual Rose Petal Uses  Part 1: Treating Your Partner to a Stay-In Spa Night

In the wake of Valentine’s Day, and with wedding season following on its heels, it’s easy to forget that rose petals aren’t meant just for special dates throughout the year. Like any bouquet of flowers, they can serve to brighten up everyday life with a splash of color. They’re incredibly versatile, too. Whether they’re used for creating an ambient, romantic evening, adding a cheerful touch to parties and dinner events, or as a gift to yourself, freeze dried rose petals are a delight.

Our favorite example is the stay-at-home spa trip. Giving your partner massages and baths is a great, and effective, way to sweep them off their feet. Adding rose petals to the scene helps create a sensual, sultry ambience around the house for an exciting evening. Alternatively, they can also be used to just make your significant other smile and relax after a long day at work. Either way, your partner is sure to enjoy.

Use their favorite-colored rose petals with the tips below for a gorgeous “spa-night” at home:

1.While your significant other is out of the house, change the bedsheets with fresh ones. Do not replace the bed comforter; store it away until the end of the evening.

2.Tightly roll a large, clean towel into a cylindrical shape. Place it at the top of the bed, so that your partner can lay their head on it during the massage. Place another fresh, folded towel at the foot of the bed.

3.Lay a thin layer of their favorite-colored rose petals on the bed. Keep in mind, many rose petals can make it uncomfortable for the person getting the massage.

4.Place a few tea lights or candles on empty surfaces around the room. You do not need very many; even three of four candles can make for a sensual ambience.

5.A few minutes before your partner gets home, light the candles and turn on ambient instrumental music to complete the mood.

6.When your partner comes home, let them settle a bit before guiding them to the bedroom. Let them lie on their stomachs and get comfortable on the bed. If they are cold, use the towel at the foot of the bed to cover them from waist-down.

7.Use oils and lotions to give them a relaxing massage for 15-20 minutes. When you have finished, place some of the rose petals on their back. The petals have a soft, velvety texture, and feel lovely after the massage loosens the back muscles.

8.Let your partner relax with the petals on their back for a few minutes. Meanwhile, go and draw a warm bath. Make sure the water is not scalding hot! If at all possible, make it a bubble bath.

9.While the water is running, sprinkle more petals around the floor and onto the countertops in the bathroom. Save some for the bathwater. If you have any leftover candles, set them up and light them.

10.When the bath is full, sprinkle the rest of the petals into the bath. They will add a splendid fragrance to the room.

11.Bring your partner into the bathroom and let them to relax and unwind in the tub.
