The Baltimore Commission

New work, a new week, fresh starts. My own anonymous paper peony, riffing from Duchesse de Nemours if the duchess had a simple yet elegant country cousin. I hope the person who ordered these flowers realizes her luminous and graceful presence inspired the final look here. 

The design of these came together with white doublette and a little center coloration to match the inspiration flower. I used single-ply floristic crepe and made my own doublette for the foliage. Materials sourced from Castle in the Air and Lia Griffith.
