Forever Flowers


What It Is: A few friends of mine are getting married this year, and as a result I’ve been swept up in quite a few conversations about all things weddings. One of them actually mentioned paper flowers to me the other day, which triggered me to remember that I’d actually seen a Canadian brand that makes them. Enter 2CLVRDesigns, an Etsy shop that specializes in shockingly realistic-looking paper flowers (if you want them to be, that is). Whether fastened into a floral headband or crafted in a giant size for chair decor or created to replace your wilting wedding day bouquet, they’ve got plenty of cool options and accessories that make for great gifts and decor.

Who It’s For: The bride, who wants to preserve her bouquet forever. Your bridesmaids, for cute day-of hair accessories. Your valentine, for a bouquet that will last as long as your love.

What It Costs: Prices vary wildly but range from about $30 for a hair clip or boutonniere to about $165 for a full floral bouquet.

Where It’s At: Shop 2CLVRDesigns here.

What do you guys think of the paper flower trend? On board? In love? Would you ever buy one?

    The arrangement on the right is very pretty, but I don’t think I would be interested. I am not a “saving things” person.

    These arrangements are petty but there is nothing like real flowers. I had calla lilies in my wedding. They were simple and yet spectacular!

    \\\\\\\\I just don’t think they compare to silk flowers that can look so natural so probably wouldn’t be interested in buying them.

    I have seen some kits from Martha Stewart that I’d love to make but I don’t think I would buy them ready made. They are pretty though!

  5. Oh I would totally get one of those big paper flowers for a gift, as a hair clip or so. I don’t love them as a bouquet, but individually they’re really nice.

    I would want fresh flowers for my wedding.

    My friend is doing this! I love the look of them but am on the fence about whether I’d like them for myself.
