Soy pot candles are available from Purple Mill
Eco-Friendly Wedding Decor
Decor plays a huge part in setting the atmosphere at weddings and celebrations with single use fresh flowers being used by the ton at many of these events.
Paper flowers are a great and versatile alternative to fresh flowers for a more eco friendly wedding. Florists often use floral foam which is treated with chemicals that can be toxic for the air and environment.
Paper flowers also are recyclable and sustainable due to being longer lasting than fresh flowers, making them the perfect option to keep forever and cherish the memories of your special day. Although there are chemicals and resins available to preserve fresh flowers, these are also often harmful to the earth.
The Paper Bohemian creates bespoke paper flower statement decor pieces, bouquets and gifts which are completely unique and available in a wide range of colours and sizes.
