The idea is simple: while live flowers are beautiful and brighten up any room, they eventually wilt and die even with the best care. But our lively paper flowers will last and bloom year-round.
Our flowers provide lively color as timeless decor and meaningful gifts. No watering, no wilting, no allergens, no fuss.
Using crepe paper, we handcraft each flower one petal at a time, so no two blooms are exactly alike. You won't see us working with mass-produced, synthetic, or artificial greenery or other elements. And that's because we're not in the business of fake flowers, but rather, we believe in work that is authentic, intricate, unique, and made from scratch.
We think of our paper flowers as little paper sculptures -- artworks that you can hold, enjoy, personalize, and share. They are inspired by nature but not bound by realism, and each bloom is our loving interpretation of a living flower.
Whether you are looking for a special gift for a loved one or decorating a space in your home or office, these paper flowers are a special way to spread some color and joy.
Our low-maintenance paper blooms have proven to be excellent flower options for allergy-sufferers and those who are in the hospital. Fresh flowers can be an infection risk for patients with weakened immune systems, and our clients have shared touching stories of the joy and hope that our lasting and allergen-free flowers have brought to friends suffering from cancer and other illnesses.

We are a mother-daughter team, based out of Atlanta and Lexington. After careers in banking and volunteering, Cherie (mom) began working with live flowers through the flower guild at her church. Meredith (daughter) is an educator, artist, and designer who has always loved paper arts.
We started making paper flowers three years ago to help Cherie’s sister who runs a nonprofit pediatric oncology camp. Kay’s Kamp is the legacy of her daughter Kaylyn who lost a brave battle against leukemia at age 18. For the organization’s annual benefit gala we created paper flower centerpieces. Guests loved them so much that we were inspired to grow this seed seed of an idea into a business, and we launched Amaranthus in early 2014.
