About

Paper flowers for weddings, parties, speacial occassions, and even for the home. Handmade to order just for you!

I am thrilled that everyone who orders from My Paperblooms Aplenty knows that they’re getting gorgeous designer handmade paper flowers and service comparable to shopping from the friendly neighborhood florist. With paper flowers that rival real blossoms in their appearance, each Paperbloom is a worthy addition to life’s most special occasions and for letting people know they are loved—no matter the allergies, health restrictions, or reason.

A SEED WAS PLANTED…
Before I created My Paperblooms Aplenty, all the paper flowers I’d see looked crafty. Everywhere I searched I’d see the same designs over and over again. Each had one thing in common, at first glance it was obvious that they were made out of paper. I wondered why there weren’t better alternatives for allergy sufferers who just wanted to experience the beauty and joy that just seeing a beautiful floral arrangement could bring.
That’s when I went on a mission to create paper flower alternatives that would look so realistic that people would forget their flowers are actually made out of paper. I was determined to create paper flowers realistic and beautiful enough to be used in arrangements for all, from the friend who can’t keep anything alive to the bride that suffers from allergies. More importantly, I wanted to create something that would last with little to no care.
Because of the hours that go into making them, I was initially concerned that the price point of my flowers might turn people off.

BUT THEN…
I received heartfelt emails from several customers like a bride who was able to enjoy more time making memories with her family instead of stressing about how she’d make her reception beautiful. There was also the woman who was trying to figure out the best way to express her gratitude to all the nurses who helped her and her baby while they were in the NICU and the girl who was so grateful for a way to send something beautiful to cheer up a friend that lived far away but was going through chemotherapy and wasn’t allowed to have real flowers in her room. Learning of their experiences and seeing their pictures made it clear that I was on the right path after all.

IT TURNS OUT THAT…
The road to My Paperblooms Aplenty was a bit more difficult than I’d anticipated.
Finding suppliers, designing templates, and developing techniques took months of searching, money, and trial and error. But I was determined to make it happen so more people could have realistic paper flowers and an elegant way to celebrate and honor the special occasions and people in their lives.

AND SO…
After years of being known as the cupcake queen and walking away from our family’s restaurant, I feared that my family and loved ones would think I was crazy for setting the desserts aside. What if no customers came and the decision to create these paper flowers turned out to be a mistake?
Despite it all, I released my first products and the response has been overwhelming! We are now a top paper flower place card holder seller online. And with the launch of my first collection, The Paperblooms Signature Collection, the popularity and uses of my paperblooms continue to grow.

THE BEST PART?
When customers send pictures, letters, or emails of the impact my paper flowers had on their event or a loved one I’m reminded that I don’t just sell designer paper flowers…I create opportunities for love to flourish and memories to be made in the lives of individuals all around the world. With My Paperblooms Aplenty, anyone can add a touch of handmade with ease and elegance, so he or she can focus on what matters most …celebrating the special people and occasions in their lives.
