I was delighted to be featured on Love My Dress this week. Love My Dress is a fabulous inspirational wedding blog for glamorous, elegant, chic and vintage inspired content. Tamryn writes; It is absolutely true that when you’re planning a wedding, one of the things that provides a lot of excitement (completely understandably in our opinion!) is the planning of the little details, those all important decorations that speak volumes about your style, your personalities and allow you to really make your mark on your wedding. With that in mind, we are super happy today to be able to introduce you to the rather fabulous work of Paper Tree.
From her studio in a picturesque Sussex village, surrounded by the natural beauty of the South Downs National Park, Paper Tree’s founder Ann-Marie Edmondson designs and selects the gorgeous products that make up Paper Tree’s whimsical and beautiful range of paper flowers, decorations, wedding favours, gifts and stationery. During her travels, she discovered stunning paper flowers in Thailand and after beginning to sell her products at craft fairs and via various shops; Ann-Marie’s business has blossomed.
Paper Tree’s signature modern vintage style makes their delicate details perfect for the prettiest of weddings. The cherry blossom or paper rose tags are absolutely perfect additions to a napkin or menu and we can also imagine them adding more than a touch of botanical beauty to kraft favour boxes. We would also love to see the paper rose favours with their personalised tags being used as escort cards or how about giving the adorable rosebud hearts to little bridesmaids to carry or using them to decorate chairs or doors? There is just so much that could be done!
As lovers of heritage crafts, we’re particularly drawn to the paper flowers. Originally a popular craft back in Victorian times and then revived in the 1950s, paper flowers are now incredibly popular and Paper Tree’s range is simply superb. A bespoke service is available and designs can be adapted to suit your style but we’re already swooning over the paper flower crowns and the idea of petal-strewn spaces that just whisper romance to all.
Ann-Marie happily admits that Paper Tree brings her joy everyday. “I feel I am very lucky to enjoy my work so much,” she says. “I am a naturally creative person and I love making beautiful things.” Happily, this beauty goes beyond the finished product. All of Paper Tree’s products are lovingly handcrafted from eco-friendly paper and Ann-Marie carefully sources all the elements needed for each and every product to ensure her company continues to ‘tread lightly’. When paper is at the heart of everything you do, you have to love it and it is clear that Paper Tree’s devotion runs deep.
Paper Tree will ship their parcels of papery happiness worldwide and, as a guide, personalised place cards start at 85p with invitations at around £5. Place settings and wedding favours range from £1.45 to £7.25 and those utterly adorable floral crowns are available from £32. The majority of items will be dispatched within five days after being hand finished with bespoke items taking 4-6 weeks and every order is carefully packaged before making its way to you.
Paper Tree’s website at papertree.co.uk should certainly be your first port of call if you’d like to find out more about their delightful range of paper flowers, gifts, wedding favours, decorations and stationery. You can also find them on Facebook and the Paper Tree boards on Pinterest are an absolute treasure trove of ideas and inspiration.
