The Colours of Summer at The Confetti Fields at Wick, Worcestershire

The Colours of Summer at The Confetti Fields at Wick, Worcestershire

Last Summer I recall seeing lots of beautiful photos on social media of pretty coloured flower fields and quickly learnt they were The Confetti Fields at Wick, Worcestershire. So when one of my best friends said she’d like to visit the fields this year for her birthday I jumped at the chance.

The Confetti Fields are owned by The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company. They supply natural, biodegradable confetti for weddings and other special occasions. The flowers are all handpicked and dried naturally before sending out to customers. The fields are open to visitors for just 10 days each year so you have to be quick if you want to visit.

Delphiniums and Cornflowers are planted to create beautiful stripes of colour across the Confetti Fields. There is a stunning mix of white, pinks and purples in different shades. 

Before we went, I had seen updates on the Facebook page stating that the confetti fields had been extremely busy. I think this is mostly down to the amazing weather recently and visitors sharing their photos on social media. I was a little anxious as I don’t like busy crowded spaces. We therefore made the decision to arrive early to try to beat the crowds. We arrived just before it opened at 10am and there was already a queue to get into the car park. The queue to get into the fields moved quickly and there was plenty of space to explore once we were inside.

The views were just beautiful and it was lovely to wander from one block of colour to the next. We of course took the opportunity to take lots of photos. I practiced some photography  tips I’d picked up at a blogging weekend away recently. I’m really pleased with the shots I took. I also love the family photos that we took too and some special ones of Mini giving bump some love.

Confetti Fields

I really enjoyed our visit to The Confetti Fields and am glad that we made the trip to go. I’d also love to return next year and get some more snaps of our expanded family when baby number two arrives.

Our visit to The Confetti Fields lasted just over an hour however, you are welcome to stay as long as you like. There are toilets on site, as well as a café selling light refreshments. There was also a stall selling bags of confetti and some other locally produced items such as honey and apple juice. Tickets for the fields were £2.50 each.

Our Top Tips for Enjoying a Day Out at The Confetti Fields

  • Keep an eye on their website and Facebook page for opening times for the season. They also publish updates about how busy they are with hints and tips for visitors.
  • Take plenty bottles of water and sun hats if you visit on a hot, sunny day. The field is very open and there is very little shade available.
  • Take cash! The Confetti Fields don’t have the facilities to take card payments for entry or refreshments.
  • Visit during the week if possible for a much quieter visit. It would be lovely to visit early evening just before they close to catch the flowers as the sun goes down.
  • The first weekend the fields are open tend to be a bit quieter. This is because people post their photos on social media and attract more visitors the following weekend.
  • The viewing platform can be very busy and attract queues. It may be a good idea to head there first if you want use it. We didn’t go up as we didn’t want to queue in the heat, however, didn’t feel that we had missed out.
  • Be respectful of the confetti fields! There are specified paths to walk through the flowers, try to stick to them and not trample on the flowers. There are still ample spots to take great photos without damaging the flowers.
  • Be patient if there are queues to get in. Remember this is a rural community with very small, narrow lanes. The staff do their best to get everyone into the car park safely and as quick as they can.
  • Don’t be put off by the queue in the car park as once you are in the fields there is plenty of space for everyone to enjoy the stunning scenery.

    Wow! What an amazing place. We went to the lavender fields a few years back to try and get some similar photos but turns out I am allergic to lavender so it was a quick visit!!!

    I had never heard of the confetti fields until this summer, now I feel like the only blogger who hasn’t visited! The colours are simply stunning against a blue sky and how gorgeous your daughter looks in her pretty dress and umbrella in there. I can totally see why it would make a good visit and your tips are great. Taking cash is a good one, so many people don’t carry it these days.

    Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

      There were quite a few people who had queued and then had to leave as they hadn’t bought any cash with them which is a shame. Definitely try to make a visit next year if you can.

    Beautiful photos, looks like she really enjoyed it! My daughter would love here too.

    Wow, the confetti fields look breathtakingly beautiful! I wish I lived closer so I could visit. I had real dried flower confetti at my wedding. I wonder if that came from there? 🙂 #CountryKids

      It may have been, I think this place is one of the largest suppliers

  11. July 21, 2018 / 6:30 pm

    We couldn’t fit a visit in this year, but it’s top of my list for next year. your photos look lovely and some great tips for me to remember too #CountryKids

  12. July 22, 2018 / 5:38 pm

    Love your photos!!! I keep seeing people posting amazing photos on Instagram but there’s no where like this near us unfortunately. My only worry would be bees, got a bit of a phobia 🙄 #countrykids

    • mommamack15
      July 22, 2018 / 5:44 pm

      I don’t think I saw many bees to be honest, lots of butterflies though. Hope you manage to find something pretty near you

  13. July 22, 2018 / 5:54 pm

    Aww what a perfect day to visit! Your photos are amazing and looks like a perfect day trip! #countrykids

      Thank you, I managed to put my photography lesson into practice from earlier in the year, always help with such pretty seventy though

  15. July 23, 2018 / 12:11 pm

    Lovely photos and sounds like a great place to visit on a sunny day. I read another review about this recently and thought it was Wick in Ireland – amazed it’s in Worcestershire, right near my parents who we’re visiting in August – thanks for the inspiration #CountryKids

    • mommamack15
      July 23, 2018 / 12:30 pm

      No definitely not in Ireland, sadly it will be closed in August, all the flowers have already been harvested for the year now.

      • July 23, 2018 / 12:52 pm

        Oh no!! Such a shame. I’ll check their website for a visit next year. Thanks for letting me know

        • mommamack15
          July 23, 2018 / 12:55 pm

          It’s normally the end of June and it’s only open for 10 days each year so it’s really tight, hope you get to see it

  16. July 23, 2018 / 9:38 pm

    These pictures are just stunning. The places is simply stunning. I wish I lived closer! #countrykids

    • mommamack15
      July 23, 2018 / 9:39 pm

      Thank you, we’re really lucky to be so close

  17. July 25, 2018 / 1:42 pm

    The fields of flowers are beautiful. I can see why it is such a popular spot. Your photos are so lovely. I like how your daughter’s hat and shoes coordinated with the flowers. #countrykids

      Thank you, she actually chose her own outfit that day which is surprising as she normally only goes for very bright colours but the white dress looked lovely against the flowers

  18. July 25, 2018 / 10:14 pm

    What lovely pictures and great tips. We went as soon as it opened the first day for 10am and it was really busy and I was quite shocked at how many people trampled on the flowers. We have bought some seeds from there to try to grow our own next year.

    • mommamack15
      July 26, 2018 / 9:52 am

      Oh I didn’t see the seeds to buy, I’m sure you’ll have some beautiful flowers of your own for next year.

  19. July 26, 2018 / 8:50 am

    I’d love to take a few photos of my loved ones among these gorgeous flowers. Sadly it looks like I will have to wait till next year now. #CountryKids

    • mommamack15

      Yes it really is a tiny window of just 10 days to visit each year, look out for the dates next year.
