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
