RED, BOOKS and WHITE - - - Pomanders

I really like this palette. What could be more simple, RED, WHITE and BEIGE a.k.a. Book Pages.

In this case, I used this palette to create paper flower pomanders for a little January girl's Alice-themed birthday.

More photos below...

I have also created a paper flowers bridal bouquet in these colors, and also wall flowers.

Purple Magic - Shimmer Paper Flower with Pearl

I have this great shimmer paper that I recently found in a local crafts store, and combined with two other shades of purple I already had, I cut out some paper petals and created this flower.

It's about 6"-7" wide and it can be great as:
  • a simple centerpiece,
  • single-flower bridesmaid bouquet,
  • gift topper,
  • wall flower.

Wedding Bouquets in YELLOW, COBALT BLUE and BOOK PAPER

A book loving bride recently contacted me about creating her wedding flowers and besides sharing her vision of a book-themed wedding (with simple yet stunning table centerpieces of her and the groom's favorite hardcover novels stacked under unassuming Mason jars filled with water and floating candles), she asked me if I could make her bridal bouquet in YELLOWS, BLUES and BOOK PAGES touched with turquoise blue ink..

How magically romantic is that!

I personally love this sunny palette so it was a great pleasure to create her flowers.

Seen below are the Bridal Bouquet, the Maid of Honor Bouquet and the Junior Bridesmaid Bouquet.

I'm also making a pomander for the flower girl, the groomsmen boutonnieres and corsages for the mothers.

RED, TAUPE and WHITE - - - Wall Flowers

There is something very comforting in this lovely palette, like a smooth delicious desert when you most need it: Strawberries dipped in Cream over Graham Cracker crust. Yum!

In this case, I used the colors RED, TAUPE and WHITE to create paper flowers which can be hanged on the wall of a favorite room (like so).
Two versions of this flower can now be found in my Etsy shop:

Blue book paper roses in a hand-knit vase

Winter shimmer blues, pearly whites and lovely book paper - - - a great color palette, don't you think?

Stylized roses, peonies, daisies - all comfy together in an upcycled glass jar dressed in a hand-knit organic cotton jacket.

Happy Winter

There is such joy in Zoe Bradley's window installations, especially the ones she did for Tiffany&Co., and such attention to detail that I can't help but feel moved by her paper work.
