You should be able to sweep them up with a regular broom. I would be hesitant to use a vacuum of any kind as they could jam up. If you are outdoors and using real petals, Mother Nature will take care of that. You will have to pick them up by hand if you are using silks outdoors as they are not biodegradable at all.

Make it a game for all the kids… the kid who picks up the most petals wins a bag of chocolate!  I’m all for child labor (lol kidding!)  🙂

I wouldn’t use a rolling sweeper or anything like that, it would probably just make a bigger mess. I agree with  selene that you should just use a regular broom!

LOL at leaf sucker..we know what you mean. Are they real or fake? I am using silk ones, so a broom will work just fine.
