Fresh Pulp Flowers


“Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.” Henry Ward Beecher 1858.

Fresh cut flowers are an undeniable beauty but they are also a major cause in destroying the healthy balance of mother nature.
Flowers are a $40 billion a year industry. Seventy-nine percent of cut flowers come from Ecuador or Columbia and are grown with 12 different types pesticides. When creating a design for your event there is a fabulous trending alternative to fresh cut flower, Paper Flowers! This is a great concept for the budget smart & eco-conscience bride. These paper petals have been seen on the runway of Chanel’s 2009 Spring/Summer Haute Couture show and in the hands of modern brides. I happened across this wonderful artist Elosie Corr. She creates the most amazing collections of couture paper floral design check out her beautiful creations

We are loving the beautiful colors trending for summer 2010. Karl Lagerfeld’s collection for Chanel is absolutely stunning. A throw back to classic vintage with a fresh color palette, Very luxurious yet casual and even a touch of Boho. Chanel’s summer polish collection had the perfect shades of happiness. A sweet bohemian head wrap in a Hermes scarf is wonderful accessory to keep the locks while spinning on a Ferris Wheel. I just love Zee Longenecker Fine Art Collection. She has a great eye and captures joy though the lens. You can purchase her prints on Etsy
