WIN IT! Paper Blossoms – A Book of Beautiful Bouquets for Your Table


Fresh flowers – sure they are pretty and smell nice, but they don’t last near long enough and not to mention they are expensive. What if you had a bouquet that lasted forever, was easy to store and didn’t need a drop of water or a single ray of sunshine? Let me introduce you to the book/bouquet called Paper Blossoms: A Book of Beautiful Bouquets for the Table by Ray Marshall.


I thought pop up books were just for my daughter, boy was I wrong. Paper Blossoms has 5 amazing pop-up bouquets in an array of styles, colors and themes. Serving sushi for dinner, why not open up to page Lotus Water Garden? Hosting a baby shower, open up to page Springtime Bouquet. Next Valentines day (and the one after that and the one after that and the one after that – remember these paper flowers don’t die) open up to page Garland of Roses to show your sweetie how much you love them. A Tropical Arrangement is probably my favorite in the book and would look great sitting on the coffee table in my Florida Room. All of the arrangements are lovely and every bit as classy as real flowers.


If 3D oragami floral centerpieces sound up your table setting alley then this is your lucky day! Leave me a comment about your experiences with floral decorating and you could win a copy of Paper Blossoms by Ray Marshall. You may not have any flower experience and that is exactly why you need this book, but you might be like me and have won a contest as a child by making an arrangement in an apple called ‘Teacher’s Pet’. Either way lemme know sometime in the next week and this book could be yours!

    Hmm.. lets see i can make tissue paper flowers does that count?? When i was oh about 8 or 9 years old i lived on a country road i got the idea to make tissue paper flower using a pipe cleaner as a stem, stand at the end of my road and sell them for 25 cents each. Well i guess i had about a dozen and i was getting some curious stares but no takers when this car stopped and a very handsome man got

    I have very little experience with flowers, so I'd love this. Luckily for my wedding, though, I have an aunt who used to manage a flower shop, so she was able to do all my decor and floral arranging for me. 🙂

    I love to make paper origami flower arrangements and give them away. I also make flowers from recycled paper. This book is so cool!

    After buying fresh flowers this past year-and-a-half I am tiring of changing the water and picking out the spent blooms.

    This idea is even better than the coffee table book on Seinfeld. When I taught 2nd grade, my kids learned Folklorico for Cinco De Mayo and the night before, I had to put together a bunch of those tissue paper and pipe cleaner flowers for decorating the stage. It took me a while but I got it done. Unfortunately, they did not do well in transport so I had to fluff them up before putting using

    I don't have a lot of oragami experience but just last night, my friend was trying to teach me how to make a star out of paper strips. I missed a step and glued my edges wrong and said star turned into a flower! So, we ran with it… our stars became flowers and I feel it was much better that way 😉

    I need that book.

    hehe 😉

    My flower arranging amounts to huge bouquets of wax roses and silk leaves, and fruits on vines in huge vases for my office. Always received comments on the size of the arrangement (it sat in the foyer). The roses always made me smile.
    Big hug,

    What a great idea! 🙂

    My son and I live in a small apartment so to brighten the place up, I buy a few flowers at the grocery store each week and put them in a vase in the middle of the room. I've gotten pretty good at figuring out which ones will last a week or so and which ones won't but I'd love to have paper ones that never go bad. 🙂
