Although cut flowers are among the classics on many occasions, they are increasingly becoming the bone of contention not only among environmentalists and fair trade advocates. Very often it is also about the different connotations that have the color and the number of flowers in a bouquet. Especially when it comes to different cultural backgrounds, some things can go wrong in the choice of flowers. You already know. For example, white is not the color of the bride anywhere in the world. In India, she is the mourning color. On the contrary, the bridal color is red there. To go to the wedding in a red dress would take some getting used to here in Europe, is not it? Similarly with the number of flowers in a bouquet. In this country, it does not matter so much whether you give away ten or eleven roses. Nobody will find it bad. But if you give away an even number of flowers in some Eastern European countries, the recipient will feel quite uncomfortable, because there is a straight flower number to honor the dead usual.
Artistic perfection and attention to detail
Cobra Lily in German Kobralilie is actually the online shop of the American artist Kate Alarcón. The Cobra lily is a lovely and very rare plant of the tubeweed family. It is typical of Northern California and the Northwest Pacific in general. Just as rare and irritating is Kate’s creative work.
She makes beautiful flowers from crepe paper. Depending on requirements, thicker paper as well as cardboard and tissue paper are used. The artist has a weakness for spring flowers such as daffodils and peonies, but also magical roses, orchids and even cactus and succulents can be found in her shop. Not only do they look incredibly real, they are also easy to maintain, and understandably quite durable, unlike real flowers.
Take a look at these beautiful paper flowers and beautify your home or festive table!
