Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design

Durbanville Flower Club Parting Favors decorated with coffee filter and water colour roses.

I am not a gigantic supporter of artificial flowers. But sometimes, just sometimes, when you make a party favor you need a blossom or a bloom to go somewhere awkward or it would be far kinder to use something that will not expire from dehydration or heat. That is when I would use a paper flower.

In my own defence- I make these flowers myself.

Artificial flowers work best if you don’t even pretend they are real. Incorporate something unmistakably whimsical in the basis of the flower design, such as the spiral stems of the roses.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
