Take a closer look at these rustic Mother's Day flowers and you'll realize they're actually made from paper! The vintage arrangement was created by in-demand New York florist Amy Merrick. For this colorful burst of vivid flowers, Merrick decided to mix real flowers with paper-made ones to add a playful twist.

The choice of a modern-white teapot (by West Elm) instead of the usual vase also gives this arrangement a blooming feminine edge. These bright colors would go down a treat with any mums who appreciate the simpler things in life.

The florist behind this cute arrangements says, "I really loved the spring flowers – especially the tulips, hellebores, and also the roses. Their sunny colors are so necessary while we wait for the weather to warm up."
