I love the idea of mixing fresh flowers with handmade paper ones! Lia Griffith creates gorgeous paper blooms that are so realistic it’s hard to tell which flowers are the real thing and which ones are paper. The stunning crepe paper peonies incorporated into the beautiful bouquet shown above are a case in point. Making your own flowers also allows you to use your favorites even if they aren’t currently in season. This method is budget-friendly too, as Lia mentions that she created this particular arrangement for under $50!
