I'll be in touch with any questions I come up with about your anniversary project. Otherwise, you can expect to receive an estimate from me within the next 1-3 business days!
In the meantime, here are a few of the most recent pieces I've finished to give you a better idea of what you can expect to see from me!
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.
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.
With March right around the corner, I've been steadily working my way through a whole slew of new flower designs and mixes for spring and Mother's Day (yes, already!). In the meantime, I wanted to share another one of my favorite recent projects.
As I'm wrapping up my last two anniversary bouquets of the year this week, I realized I never got around to sharing Leo's gift to Katie!
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!
Upon the release of the University of Richmond Magazine, I received an email from a fellow alumnae whose daughter was about to celebrate her first wedding anniversary. She loved the idea of gifting her something that would be more like a combination of a Paperversary bouquet and a study.
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!
This is the last anniversary I helped celebrate in September, and it was a stunner! Stephen contacted me a little late in the game having just found out about my ability to recreate bouquets. I took one look at the gorgeous photos he sent (and was won over by his genuine excitement) and knew I needed to find a way to make this one happen.
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!
So it should be getting pretty obvious that the paper anniversary is my new favorite thing. Helping couples celebrate their first anniversary is fun on its own—absolutely! But add to that the co-conspirator factor when I get to work in stealth mode to surprise an unsuspecting party, and I'm in heaven!
