Glamelia's are an old tradition and soo beautiful and here is an order for a 13 inch glamelia in crepe paper! I have done a few of the glamelia wedding bouquets before and they take a huge amount of time and patience and it is indeed worth the effort and how I would love to get back pictures of the bride holding this!
I was thinking it would be awesome to do some in pastel shades,enjoy the pictures!
Do feel free to pin pictures to your boards or facebook
It has been a busy and blessed season here and we have a wonderful tutorial from BlossomsAndPosies but before that here are some eye candy for you of my Christmas gifts I gave this time.I tried to do handmade gifts.A gorgeous white peony and anemone arrangement laced with some succulents.
A poppy based arrangements this time it is all artificial to match a poppy painting hanging in my uncle's room.Some Hair flowers for cousins..
Glamelia's date back to the 40 & 50's. Designing a glamelia is old school artistry. They are handmade from invidividual rose petals or other flower petals and crafted to look like one large bloom. The design can be tedious and time consuming but make for beautiful bouquets or corsages.
When a bride whose wedding is in Mexico ordered one I was totally thrilled I had done these in a different style for another bride a long time ago this time the order was in ivory and the brides wanted a different style.The flower measure more than 8 inches across!
Fresh Glamelia's are notorious for not lasting at all after the wedding but this one in paper would be a great keepsake after the wedding!
Sunny had ordered some paper cake flowers to go along with some large paper flowers.These are made from just white paper! She sent me a gorgeous wedding cake inspiration and I created my take on them -hope it did justice! It took a lot of reworking and hence the delay to figure things out as I have never thought of making them out of white paper so this was a exciting challenge -I am pretty thrilled on my new paper gardenias and the more contemporary paper flowers for this order! Hope you will sent me picture of them on the cake!
More pictures coming up on a Holy Communion wreath for my cousin!

Composite wedding bouquet are well sought after nowadays and has been featured in the birdal magazines again - a new revival of the old victorian tradition.What a coincidence that last Spring I made one in white! Sarah had ordered these large hot pink flowers and here is what I made for her.
The order has 2 5 inches flower girls flowers -4 bridesmaids at 6 to 7 inches and Sarahs is at 8 inches.She is think ing of adding fresh leaves to it once close to her wedding date.
The bouquets have satin wrap on the handmade handle. These flowers took me a "ridiculous" amount of time just due to the fact that I added just LOTS of petals for the wow factor!
Wow how beautiful does Christina look???,the wedding used lots of handmade elements! Love how the red pops out in all the pictures
The flower girl held a small purse into which Christina placed the loose flowers.
