Paper Flowers Take Center Stage In Nursery Decor

Paper Flowers Take Center Stage In Nursery Decor

Nursery decor is part and parcel to the whole beauty of celebrating and preparing for a new life. Babies are special and their first baby nursery decor is uniquely momentous. So when I get a request from a new mommy-to-be to make a paper flower set, I am thrilled and honored to be chosen for the task.

Baby Nursery Decor

 

The color palettes of nurseries are sometimes the traditional you might think for little girls with pinks being a dominate color.

 

Sometimes the color is found in the wall and the flowers remain neutral with creams and white tones.

Other times a complimentary paper flower color accompanies the pinks like lavender and teal.

Bold colors of navy and teal also make for beautiful complimentary paper flower shades to the pinks.

This nursery set of paper flowers had the extra accent of a matching paper flower mobile in beautiful hues of cream, gold, and gray.

The one consistent thing I notice in customer photographs is that the paper flowers for the nursery always seem to go above the crib. It is the focal point of the room and takes center stage!

 

I do always caution the mama that they need to think about when those little hands will reach up someday. Of course the mattress goes lower but those little legs and arms can still reach more than you think. ( I speak from experience here!)

I’ll never forget the planning and preparation that went into my first little one’s room. We painted it yellow (the traditional thing 34 years ago when you didn’t know if it would be a boy or girl). I hung curtains, made a quilt, hung pictures, and set up the crib…..only to move before the baby arrived! I don’t regret it one bit though. I have fond memories of the preparation and anticipation.

So getting to be a part of that with my flowers is pretty special.

Babies….mine are grown. My grand-babies are getting bigger too. I’m glad I still get to help decorate nurseries because babies are really so special! You can shop on Facebook, Etsy or my website if you’d like some flowers to welcome your little one. There is no color palette or size of flowers that can’t be designed just for you and your new bundle of joy. Perhaps your nursery can be in the next edition of a blog post showing off customer photos!

Paper Flowers Photo Shoot!

Paper Flowers Photo Shoot!

Making paper flowers for special events creates a thrill in me that never grows old. I’m especially excited when a professional photographer captures my flowers in stunning ways I can only hope to do myself one day.

Melissa and Beth Photography contacted me about making some paper flowers for a “first birthday” photo shoot. I couldn’t have been more thrilled!

Just look at these gorgeous photos!

The cake was made by Cami’s Cake Company.

It was like opening presents and eating cake for me to be a part of this collaboration to be sure!

Contact me if YOU are in need of some yummy cake decor or an extra special topper for some presents. I just might feature YOUR photos on a future blog post!

A Great Big Opportunity

A Great Big Opportunity

I just updated my “about” page here on the blog. Yup, I’m just a little behind. One paragraph that I didn’t need to change with my new business name was one that talked about the blessings I’ve found along the way in this journey. I had one of those special opportunities recently that really was unexpected and also really filled my cup!


The opportunity was to teach a group of ladies how to make my paper flowers. I always love the process of showing how to take a flat piece of paper and make it into a 3-dimensional flower. I’ve led many a class to do just this. This time it was a little different.

A large,local church was hosting a women’s ministry event with flowers as the theme. They graciously asked yours truly to do a demonstration of making flowers out of paper.

Did I mention it was a LARGE church!

Due to the large group setting, we had to have a camera on my hands and shoot that live video feed up on a huge screen. It actually worked pretty well as long as I didn’t try to actually think about it!

I also got to help their decorating committee make large flowers for the center of the tables and stage decorations. They did an amazing job of making a ton of flowers.

The ladies were gracious and kind and it turned out to be such a fun evening. One more blessing to add to my list.

Dreamy Wedding Colors

Dreamy Wedding Colors

Eucalyptus green, cream, and gold….Simply Stunning!! I’m over the moon in love with these color choices one of my bridal clients chose.

It is always such a privilege to be chosen by a bride to help with her decor on the special day. This time was no exception! I can’t wait to see the flowers in the venue instead of just  being displayed on my front porch!


This shade of green was a hard paper to come by. It was worth the search and the camera doesn’t really do it justice.

 

 

Adding the gold to this palette was the winning ticket! It made the other flowers pop and brings a bit of glamour to the set.

 

Each of the variances of color, flower style, and size combine to make this a set that I’m quite proud of! These will be listed in the shop on the website very soon. Until then feel free to contact me for your unique color choices to make that baby nursery, wedding shower, or reception one that is uniquely you!

 

Something New

Something New

I love when one of my favorite shopkeepers asks me to do a special project. You never know what it will turn in to. A few years back I was asked to make a paper wedding cake for a wedding themed room. Who knew that would result in it being one of my “specialties.”paper wedding cakeNow, I’ve sold several in my Etsy store, had it professionally photographed for a blog, been featured in a Bridal show, and I hope one day to have it in a magazine.paper wedding cakeMy shopkeeper friend has amazing ideas. Now the request was for some giant paper flowers.large paper magnolia

These were amazingly fun to make. My mind can’t stop thinking of the possibilities!
