Happy Spring!

“The spring came suddenly, bursting upon the world as a child bursts into a room, with a laugh and a shout and hands full of flowers.”

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

A few years ago I wrote a blog post showing the paper flower centerpieces that I had just designed.  Since then I have completely redesigned by centerpiece offerings.  However, pinterest is alive with links to this blog post featuring my old designs, and I’ve had to disappoint too many potential customers when I tell them that I can no longer make the designs they are finding on pinterest.  So I have decided to edit this post to show the new designs that I am selling, instead of the old ones.  I’m sorry if you came here looking for photos that are no longer up, but if you are interested in purchasing any of the newer designs you now see here on this blog post I would be more than happy to help.  You can find all the information you might need on my website, www.asterandquail.com.  My business partner Elizabeth and I would be more than happy to help.

All of these designs feature paper flowers, handmade in our studio in New York City.  We hand dye or paint most of the colors you see here, and the centerpieces are illuminated by battery powered LED lights that stay cool to the touch for fire safety.

    Very Nice as usual! I love the colors, I don’t see any wires… either you hid them incredibly well or these are battery operated, which is great!

    • Hi Marianne,

      Sorry I just noticed your comment. Honestly I have no clue how to subscribe you to the blog, I’m relatively clueless when it comes to WordPress. Maybe you can search google for info on how to re-subscribe? I’m so sorry I can’t be more helpful!
