Gorgeous paper peonies and bunches of paper daisies

It's late spring and of course the next in the season are peonies and daisies which are springing forth.

I wanted to share with you all these latest flowers I made as an order for Ted. He saw the peony bouquet in my book and wanted one for his wife and he ordered something for his mother too. You could with the book be making this yourself!

I created a mini teacup arrangement for his mom with handmade gardenias and blue forget me nots, I added some dried berries for a gorgeous coffee table or side table arrangement.

I created  some paper daisies and daffodils so beautiful. I tweaked the daisy pattern in my book to create double layered daisies! Beautiful as a gift to your loved ones.Soon I am planning to load up my etsy store with some bunches paper flowers so look out!

A forget me not inspired blue wedding for Australia.

I have been making this order for some time and it is one of my large orders of bird boutonnieres.I was so thrilled to make this order for Vivi in Australia who is going to be getting married in Malayasia!

Vivi had asked me to create a forget me not based wedding collection and these birds are SO cute that is looks so fabulous that I had a tough time rejecting any of the pictures I shot.

A set of 12 boutonnieres with flocked forget me nots. Each boutonniere is accented with the bird and a beautiful bunch of forget me nots. The stems are wrapped with moss and pale blue ribbon tie lends a touch of style to each one.

The ladies have corsages with a blue paper flower (by the way this flower is featured in my book)! Each corsage is handcrafted with pale green feather,silver accents and of course the bird and the forget me nots. The stems are wrapped with moss to create a beautiful elegant wedding accent.

The ring bearer will carry the birds perched on a wood slice tied with a white ribbon.

The cake topper would my handcrafted forget me not bird's nest with the birds nesting in them.Vivi is also going to adding a dozen forget me nots to her bouqet!

To recap some of my flowers done over the years! Do pin the image!

Spring flowers and a giveaway!

Karen had asked me if I could replicate some flowers in a quilt in her room.After many debating I decided to go in for the lilacs and did shaded peonies to match her colors in her quilt.

I hand dyed the paper for most of the flowers in this order.I had deja vu all the time as I was doing this order as I recollected my childhood when I used help my mom dye the flowers she used to make.She and her sister had invented so many techniques to come up with gorgeous colored flowers mainly in fabric.Doing this order reminded me of my aunt (who sadly passed away) and her craft room and my mother's cupboard all filled up with so many colors...eventually we used to come out with painted hands and gorgeously colored fabric flowers...I took a trip back I think which reminds I better pass on it to my daughter someday..

I also have another giveaway of my signed book coming up. So do enter the giveway below.Last giveaway winner was Gina Lee from CA.

Orange Blossoms for a vintage themed wedding

The Orange blossom is the fragrant flower of the Citrus sinensis (orange tree). It is used in perfume making, has been written about as an aphrodisiac and is the state flower of Florida. It is traditionally associated with good fortune and has been popular in bridal bouquets and head wreaths for weddings. Orange blossom essence is an important component in the making of perfume.

I have been often asked to make them and here is my latest set for a bride who is going to be creating a head wreath out of it..

A Forget Me Not Memorial Rememberance

The Forget-Me-Not flower is a favorite wild flower of many; however, this small, blue flower has been a symbol of both love and hope, they are often ordered for a  memorial or wedding as seeds packets

I had an order as it my client's father memorial function, (having been through one for my brother myself)  as her father loved the forget me nots.

Along with it I created a tiny arrangement of gardenia's with some remaining forget me nots in a deep blue mini bottle for my etsy shop,with Mother's Day fast approaching you could order it for your Mom!

Leaving you with this song that I love..

God be with you till we meet again; 
When life’s perils thick confound you;
Put His arms unfailing round you; 
God be with you till we meet again. 

God be with you till we meet again; 
Of His promises remind you; 
For life’s upper garner bind you;
God be with you till we meet again. 

God be with you till we meet again;
Sicknesses and sorrows taking, 
Never leaving or forsaking; 
God be with you till we meet again.

God be with you till we meet again; 
Keep love’s banner floating o’er you, 
Strike death’s threatening wave before you; 
God be with you till we meet again. 

God be with you till we meet again; 
Ended when for you earth’s story, 
Israel’s chariot sweep to glory; 
God be with you till we meet again.
