Creating for a Pro: Michael & Charlotte’s Paperversary

Late last year I got a submission through my "Challenge Me" form for a particularly interesting flower that came with a fun little intro from the sender. Charlotte and her sister had started a company doing wedding florals, and have always wanted to grow the Himalayan Poppy, but can't in their climate. I then realized that their flower shop, Blossom + Vine, is in Gaithersburg, Maryland—the same town that my college roommate lives in and where I occasionally visit. Never missing the opportunity to make friends with other flower people, we exchanged a few more emails back and forth, and I promised to connect the next time I was in the area.

Sean & Candice | Paperversary Reveal

Projects like Sean and Candice's Paperversary bouquet are one of the many reasons why I'm so glad I started making paper flowers. Sean initially contacted me while deployed, in search of flowers to send his wife for their first anniversary. After chatting back and forth, we worked out a plan for me to ship her an arrangement to enjoy while he was away, and at the same time, I got to work creating this replica for him to give to her at Christmas.

James & Marta’s Paper Anniversary

Happy November, everyone! I'm back from a long weekend in the Caribbean, where I celebrated my 40th birthday relaxing and recharging before the holidays kick into full force. I'm piecing the final details together for that launch, so stay tuned for an ambitious collection of gifts that I could not be more excited about! 

In the meantime, I have a few more October Paperversary projects that are safe to reveal now, and I'm so excited to be able to share this one with you!

Sabrina and Justin’s Paperversary!

This week I got an email from Justin letting me know that it was safe to share the project we collaborated on and that his wife, Sabrina, loved her gift! Phew! 

I loved working on this one! It was full of things I'd never tried before, a combination I never would have thought to put together, and made up of a palette I just can't get enough of these days.

Let's dig in!

An anniversary surprise

Last week I had the absolute privilege of sending out an extraordinary first-anniversary gift to help a couple celebrate their first anniversary despite the fact they weren't going to be able to spend it together. While deployed this wonderful man reached out to me to see if I could help him surprise his bride with a unique bouquet.

The Paper Anniversary

Right before Mother's Day, I got an email from a friend of mine about a custom order. She and her wife were about to celebrate their first anniversary and she wanted to know if I had any flowers, or if I could make something similar to the flowers they had in their bouquets. "I'm sure you know that the traditional gift for the first anniversary is paper, so I thought this would be perfect.", she wrote. Well, I have to admit, up until this point I had never put these pieces together. I sure am glad that Caroline did, because she's right—this is a brilliant gift idea!
