Chanel Couture 2009 Runway - Inspiration Weddings!



In the last few of months I received  a couple requests from Wedding Planners and Brides-To-Be about making paper flower arrangements inspired by the famous Chanel Couture 2009 runway! I love the look...Classic and elegant!
I've made one sample of my famous Extra Large Paper Flower Backdrop,  Small Centerpiece and one beautiful Cake Topper!

* Famous * Paper Flowers...

Happy Saturday everyone!
I have something to reveal...Something pretty awesome!

A few months ago...Avon  - New York
contacted me and purchased a selection of my handmade 
paper flowers for a commercial photos shoot...
The wonderful Senior Art Director kindly
explained  to me that from the shoot to
 the actual printing of the catalogue...the concept
might change...So, no guaranty for my flowers to
be part of the backdrop for the 2012 Spring Jewelry Collection.
No need to say that when I finally received the photos
from Avon...I was very proud of my little blooms...
They look so pretty...their appearance is very discreet...nonetheless
they are going to be noticed by millions of Avon clients around the world!

Here are some previews of the Spring 2012 Campaign #  7 
(also in the December 2011  Advance booklet - Campaign # 26)

Getting ready for the wedding show...


This coming Sunday (October 2nd) I'm going to feature my handmade paper flowers at a wedding show
 in Woodstock...For the occasion I made a few peonies in the white colors  that I'm planning to create a fantastic wedding bouquet with them! 




Aren't they fabulous!

Also, for the show I created a table setting using warm Fall colors (a client of mine - a lovely Bride-To-Be inspired me with these beautiful colors!) which includes: table number cards, place cards holders, escort cards, napkin rings and a mini bouquet!









This whole collection is available in your color scheme for your special event or wedding!
Planning a dinner party? Impress your guests with lovely napkin rings and place cards that match your home decor and your beautiful dishes! 

I decided as well to create a Tiffany Blue inspired collection...here is a sneak peek!
