Although cut flowers are classics on many occasions, they are increasingly becoming a bone of contention, not only among environmentalists and fair trade advocates. Very often it is also about the different connotations that the color and the number of flowers in a bouquet have. Especially when it comes to different cultural backgrounds, some things can go wrong with the choice of flowers. You already know. For example, white is not the bride’s color everywhere in the world. In India it is the color of mourning. On the contrary, the bridal color there is red. Going to the wedding in a red dress would somehow … take getting used to here in Europe, wouldn’t it? Similarly with the number of flowers in a bouquet. In this country it doesn’t really matter whether you give away ten or eleven roses. Nobody will find it bad. But if you give away an even number of flowers in some Eastern European countries, the recipient will feel quite uncomfortable, because an even number of flowers is customary to honor the dead.

Apart from that, flowers simply remain unbeatable and always bring a special touch with them. They embellish the ambience and bring us joy. It is no wonder that artists paint flowers and make them from different materials. Children want to make paper flowers and interior designers often rely on flower patterns. So you can understand how great our fascination was when we heard the fairytale rush of flowers from Cobra Lily on Instagram have encountered.

Artistic perfection and attention to detail

Cobra Lily in German Kobralilie is actually called the online shop of the American artist Kate Alarcón. The cobra lily is a lovely and very rare plant from the pitcher plant family. It is typical of Northern California and the Northwest Pacific in general. Kate’s creative work is just as rare and charming.

She makes beautiful flowers out of crepe paper. Thicker paper, cardboard and tissue paper can also be used as required. The artist has a weakness for spring flowers such as daffodils and peonies, but magical roses, orchids and even cacti and succulents can also be found in her shop. Not only do they all look incredibly real, they are also, unlike real flowers, completely easy to care for and understandably quite durable.

Take a look at these magnificent paper flowers and use them to beautify your home or the festive table!
