With spring in full swing, we’ve got floral on the mind and so does everyone else. From haute interiors to simple floral arrangements, the newest trend in floral is, believe or not, paper. Even House Beautiful graced its March cover with a beautiful faux botanical work of art featuring crisp whites and vibrant yellows. A wonderful way to brighten your home, these whimsical and delicate creations are just as lovely as real blooms.
Why go paper? Paper flowers clearly take the prize for longevity. And what a wonderful way to express your creativity with color and form (if you feel like a DIY project that is). So we get the main argument against paper flowers – no scent. Well, no problem. Scent is our specialty. Pair your favorite floral of the season with your paper blooms and achieve the same aroma as if the flowers were freshly picked from your garden. Some of our favorite spring scents include: English Garden Radiance Collection, Spring Lilac Premium Round, Dahlia Limited Edition Village Classics, Gardenia Premium Round, Just For You Premium Round, Scarlet Berry Tulip Premium Round, Wild Rose Premium Round, and Violet Blossom Premium Round.
There’s a ton of great resources for paper flowers whether you choose to purchase handmade arrangements or want to channel your inner florist and get creative with a DIY project.
