Paper anniversary reveal!

Paper Rose Co. Paper Anniversary Bouquet, Kevin 3

I'm so excited to share another paper anniversary bouquet today. I wrapped this one up before Labor Day but needed to make sure the coast was clear before I shared more than the sneak peek I posted here a little while back. After how far in advance Kevin planned this surprise for his wife, Alissa, I'd hate to be the one to ruin it! 

Alissa's bouquet was one of the largest and most intricate pieces I've worked with so far. To keep things manageable (and within budget), we focused on the most prominent blooms and scaled back the overall quantity of stems.

Below are a few side-by-side comparisons. (Photos on the left provided by Kevin.)

The arrangement I made included two varieties of ivory roses—which I distinguished by using different weights and textures of crepe—crisp white ranunculus, anemones, astilbe, brunia berries, dusty miller, and oversized green leaves. 

The final paper version is not quite as large as her original bouquet, but the inspiration and meaning are just as strong.

I'd love to hear what you think of this piece or any of the other recent paper anniversary creations I've posted. September and October are busy times for wedding anniversaries (including my own!), so stay tuned for more fun reveals coming up soon! 

Given the number of anniversary bouquet requests, I'm working to add a little more information here about how this process works and how to get started. In the meantime, if you're interested in creating a custom bouquet for your anniversary (or any other upcoming special occasion), please use this form and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!
