Paper In Bloom-An Interview with St Jude's Creations

Today we take a look at the beautiful work of the talented Maria Noble of stjudescreations. She uses the techniques taught to her by her mother to create customizable bouquets are perfect for the budget-conscious bride who desires a floral keepsake to remember her special day.

Where are you located? Bristol, CT 06010

Tell us a little about yourself. I am a part time web designer, a floral designer and the mother of a 3 yr old and 1 month old!


What special things do you create for weddings? I have made bridal bouquets, toss bouquets and paper flowers for arrangements, favor flowers in custom colors for the budget conscious bride. I do centerpieces, hair pieces also.


Who or what sparked your interest in making wedding-related items? My mother learned a tradition of making flowers and from the time I was young I used to see her make bouquets for brides and make flowers for arrangements. My house was always full of handmade flowers and everyone used to come and admire them. Now when I became a stay at home mom I decided to put my spin on her art and St Jude's Creations was born. Many of my friends like the arrangements I made and hence it `bloomed'. I put up a web site and have been receiving orders through the site mainly.


What is a little known fact, or something unique about your work that is interesting? Paper flowers, these flowers are made from paper! That was mostly everyone say. I do flowers from many materials like fabric,clay,solabo wood too just that I haven't been concentrating on them so much. It's some thing I will be doing in the very near future.


If you are married, what's the one thing you wish you had for your wedding that you didn't? Hmmm…wish I did the reception arrangements!


What is your favorite part of the wedding journey? Kids!!!


What advice can you share for all the brides getting married this year? Plan early


What is your perfect honeymoon spot? Somewhere near the sea


If you could pick anyone famous that would purchase your items for their wedding, who would they be? I have been quite fortunate to have my paper flowers featured in an Oscar nominated movie starring Anthony Hopkins. The paper flowers the director ordered were featured in the movie for about 5 mins!


You can watch it here (seen only for a short time than in the movie) in a trailer here on YouTube:

Mathew Robbins contributing editor of Martha, (he does most of the bouquets in the magazine), ordered some flowers from me for a wedding, I was floored! Wish Martha would! (You can see the large paper flowers he ordered here http://stjudescreations.netfirms.com/large.html)


If you could choose 1 item from your shop that you wish every bride could have, what would it be? A bouquet of paper flowers as it would last forever and could be kept after the wedding
