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!

A bouquet recreation for Boyd of paper calla lillies! Each flower is handshaded to create the recreation. Boyd mailed me the same ribbon he had saved from the orginal wedding bouquet,I have used the same ribbon.Wishing them a very happy anniversary evne though it is belated!
I had an order for another stephanotis wedding bouquet! The client was special since she comes from my same hometown! ha! what a small world :-) The bouquet has lots and lots of flowers and each crystal is handstuck! took lots and lots of time! lol! Thank you Portia for your order! Would greatly appreciate any pictures of the wedding!
Here are some pictures of my anemones in a black and white themed wedding that took place this May.I got some more pictures from Sweet Pea photgraphy and they are awesome!! Thank you so much for senting them!! Please do check them out if you are in the PA area..
Christi and Chad at the reception -she holds a shades of pink clay anemone bouquet! love this picture!!! The boutonierres and the mother's bouquets were paper anemones! The mother's held a gorgeous paper anemone bouquet in black and white with green berries and paper ribbon trails.
I had a order via Etsy for a large white peony wedding cake topper for Paula.She also wanted 7 gardenias for all her bridesmaids! What a gorgeous sight it would be!
It was the first time I was making a clay peony -I usually make the large anemone so I liked doing an peony for a change and I am sure this is going to be frequent seller again! I just love doing custom flowers.. The peony has white stamens in the center and is really make a statement on its own beign 6 to 7 inches big!!! It will sit regally atop a wedding cake and I really dont think you dont need anything else besides this flower!
A black and white wedding ! Christi had emailed me and requested if I could make for her wedding the bouquet and of course it was anemones that she wanted.Now we are planning to a combination of both.The order has 3 mother's bouquets which I finished up yesterday.
There are 3 a bit larger paper anemone with some berries which I added as it was looking soo pretty together(hope christi likes this as we had orginally planned no filler)I finished it off with some paper ribbon to match the paper flowers :-) and the handle is all black satin!
The boutonierres are single anemones with no fillers again wrapped in black satin.
The cakes flowers are also done but I didn't get time to photograph that - more coming up in the next post.
I recieved an order from Jessica for a white hair flower for her wedding and also a flower for her dress.She said she would mail me a brooch she had and requested if I could make it the center of the flower,the brooch is just gorgeous and hence the flower came out sooo pretty
Here is what I created for her:
and here is the flower for her dress with pearl beads in the center,
