Thought I would share a little history on paper flowers that I found very interesting!
It is believed that the art of paper flowers came from China almost 2,000 years ago. WOW....that's a long time ago. They would use paper flowers for religious offerings which would float in containers of water. After time went on they would make them for creative channels for meditation.
In Victorian days women would create paper flowers when the real ones were out of season. They used paper flowers to decorate several rooms in their home. It was also a favorite pastime for women of that era since they were very limited on social activities.
Even though paper flowers are time consuming I feel that they are less expensive than real flowers and last a lot longer. Above is a vintage photo of lady selling paper flowers at a local fair. Maybe we are relative?? LOL.
Well, thought I would share a little history on paper flowers. I hope you are enjoying you holiday. Stay safe and enjoy the fireworks!
