Flower of the Week: The Mystery Series: Charlotte

We are busy preparing new pieces for the launch of Erinn V Maison, a home decor store that is opening in Beverly Hills in October, founded by none other than Erinn Valencich of Erinn V Design Group! Here's a sneak peek at one of the arrangements we've crafted. This one, by Dave Wescott is called Charlotte and is part of the Mystery Series. It's a lush, low centerpiece created entirely out of handmade paper and vintage gems and placed in a beautiful mirrored vase.

First Anniversary Present: "Flower-in-a-Box"

Susan Spehar created this "Nature-in-a-Box" concept for a commission from the UK. We delivered the flower to the LA hotel room of a lucky husband on his first anniversary. Did you know that the traditional gift to commemorate the first year of marriage is "paper?" Why not give your own loved one a "Flower-in-a-Box?"

This Flower-in-a-Box was inspired by Crested Butte, Colorado, one of the most beautiful and vibrantly-colored placed on the planet. If you think this flower is bright, you should check out the wildflowers on the Butte in July, a sight to behold! 

We included a detachable stem, so the flower can be displayed inside its original box, or taken out and placed in a vase. So many options! 

If you want to order your own Flower-in-a-Box for your loved one, contact us! We can make many different sizes, colors and styles, and individualize any order to make it special and personal to you! Paper flowers from Paper Botanicals make for a lasting, unique and thoughtful first anniversary gift--think outside the box, with a Flower-in-a-Box

Thanks to Tic-Tock and WIPA for a Stunning Event!

Wow! We're so pleased to have been a part of the WIPA luncheon yesterday, which was held at the gorgeous Vibiana downtown. Hundreds of wedding professionals gathered to talk about the biz, and--lucky them--they got to sit at tables designed by two of LA's best flower artists: Tic-Tock Couture Florals and My Flower Guy. Paper Botanicals collaborated with Tic-Tock to make a show-stopping, romantic and modern centerpiece that blended both real and paper flowers!  We also provided handmade magnolia-inspired napkin rings, made with exquisite detailing, if we do say so ourselves. Here are some photos we snapped ourselves, but professional ones are coming soon!

Thanks to all who came to POP!

It was a spectacular event, with everything a bride could dream of to make her wedding day perfect--and more mini cupcakes than one person should ever consume. Check out some pictures of our booth, below, courtesy of Jen O'Sullivan. She took some beautiful closeups of our paper flower sculptures. And it was great to meet some fabulous new friends as well, including Eddie from Tic-Tock Florals and Hoofrish at Tamrish Event Design.
