How Amy Merrick Styles Our Paper Flowers
Amy Merrick‘s styling and photography makes flowers come alive – in beautiful and sometimes strange ways – so of course we needed to know what she would do with our handcrafted Paper Flowers! Discover the details of this Brooklyn-based florist’s arrangement, and get a few tips for styling our Paper Flowers at home!
Mixing paper flowers with real flowers felt unexpected and almost humorous, like a little joke for those who looked closely at the arrangement. Using a modern teapot as a vase was also a playful twist instead of the usual vase.
Don’t be afraid to manipulate the flowers – arching stems, or using wire cutters to change their heights. I also opened up the petals on the tulips, so they looked as if they had been growing in the arrangement.
