Red Aqua Paper Flowers Wedding Bouquet

Two years ago, I would have wanted a bridal bouquet just like this one... The color palette for our wedding was red, white and aqua, and this would have fitted perfectly.

Alas,... that's when I only started making paper flowers and didn't yet know how to fold a paper rose or create a paper peony... so my wedding bouquet was made of actual roses to which I added wired pearls.

Almost two years and thousands of paper flowers later, I'm still in love with this color scheme. It's dramatic and vivid and nothing contrasts blue so well as red.

For these flowers, I used only the best papers in a few shades of shimmer blues, lipstick red and shimmer white.

Inks and pearls complement the flowers, which are all wired, wrapped and tied together with a lovely turquoise ribbon.

I also added a blue polka-dot ribbon, just for fun :)

  1. Like you, I would have done something so different had I known that paper bouquets existed. This is a beautiful bouquet-- vibrant, gorgeous, and one-of-a-kind!
