I create unique handcrafted bespoke paper flowers for lasting memories for special occasions. Every flower is individually handmade to suit your colour theme and style. Each flower is carefully crafted by hand in my studio based in Chichester, West Sussex where each petal and leaf is cut, shaped and formed by hand to bring them to life making use of high quality crepe paper. Each flower is unique and are perfect for a lasting gift, special occasion or celebration and a unique alternative to real flowers that are a lasting memory to treasure.

I love creating custom orders working with clients to suit their theme and style for any special occasion. My paper flowers can be created into bespoke arrangements such as bouquets, buttonholes, flowergirl accessories, hair pieces and flower crowns.

Hello I’m Clare and I just love creating flowers!

Petal and Bird started when I decided I wanted to create the flowers for my own wedding in August 2016. I really wanted to hold onto as many memories as I could from our special day and I didn’t want my flowers to die. I now get to remember it forever, as they now fill mine and my family and friends homes. I just love that I get to see my wedding bouquet every day still looking as fresh as when it came down the aisle with me.

I love the process of bringing life to each and every  flower, creating something special for my customers. From the beginning stages working with a client and designing the flowers, to bringing each petal to life and then packaging the completed order. It’s an amazing feeling when someone loves your work and wants it to be a part of their special day.
