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!

Glamelia Wedding Bouquet

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!

paper flower cake toppers

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!
