All About

Paper Flowers

Anything but garden variety, paper flowers capture the beauty of actual blooms in a whimsical way. Unlike the natural kind, they won’t wilt and they make lasting centerpieces. Peonies, poppies, magnolias -- paper flowers have no limits. Gather inspiration from our projects and watch your paper buds bloom.

Beautiful and durable, crepe paper lends itself to countless applications. Glue bands of it to a bunch of eggs, affix tiny crepe blooms, and pile them in a bowl for a simple, elegant display. You also can use the paper to create lifelike flowers with egg centers. Or add crepe ears to an egg and watch it turn into a bunny.

Arranged at different heights in silver trumpet vases and mint julep cups, they bring whimsy to a formal reception table set in all white.
