"A product that aligns with your vision"
"I first learned about Paper Portrayals at a wedding vendor event at the Green Building in Brooklyn and working with Danielle and her team proved to be the best decision I made for my wedding. From the first engagement to the day when Danielle hand delivered my bridal bouquet to my apartment, her level of service was outstanding and the quality of her work was unmatched across all of the vendors with whom I was working. She listens to your ideas, makes suggestions based on her artistic abilities and expertise, and works tirelessly to deliver a product that aligns with your vision. The design was flawless and the final product was absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend Paper Portrayals for any brides out there that are on the lookout for custom made, long-lasting flowers, all at a very affordable price point."

"Every idea, color, inspiration and texture that I wanted was there."
“Everyone loved our flowers, they couldn't believe they were paper! It was a dream come true for me to be able to have any flower I wanted without worrying about the season and without shipping them from a foreign country. Everything we talked about Danielle was able to incorporate in some way. Every idea, color, inspiration and texture that I wanted was there. The gardenias for my mother and Ryan's grandmother, the orchids Ryan buys me, the catmint which is my favorite perennial, and even the hops and barley boutonnieres because Ryan and my dad are so into beer!
I will treasure these flowers for the rest of my life, both in photos and in person, since I can keep them forever. I would recommend Paper Portrayals to anyone!”
Ashley, East Northport, NY
"A true artist"
“Danielle created the flowers for our wedding almost two years ago and we still have them in the same condition! The evening was brought to life through the flowers that Danielle hand-made to custom order through a few meaningful consultations. She is a true artist who was able to follow and enhance our color scheme. She was also able to advise us on the types of flowers we wanted due to her vast knowledge and experience. The bonus is that we still have our flowers, as do many of our guests, and we will continue to admire them and remember that evening forever. We would recommend Danielle and Paper Portrayals to anyone looking to make a moment last a lifetime!”
Michele and Amanda, Brooklyn, NY
"The details and work put into it was amazing and beyond our expectations."
"I've always wished for flowers that were everlasting, with the true colors never fading. I was hoping to find these everlasting flowers that someday I could use for my wedding. Where my friends, family and myself could keep for years, later looking back as a memory of my very special day!
A friend of mine found Paper Portrayals and shared it with me. I visited the website and instantly fell in love with Danielle's work. I had to reach out to her hoping to have a bouquet made for my wedding. I didn't exactly know the type of bouquet I wanted, but I gave the color palette to Danielle and "Voila!” out came my beautiful bouquet. I then decided to have Danielle work on all the flowers for our Big Day. Bridal, bridesmaids and tossing bouquets, corsages, flower girl wand, and boutonnieres were all exclusively made by Danielle. It was absolutely stunning! The details and work put into it was amazing and beyond our expectations. All of our guests had great comments about all the flowers used at our wedding! I now use my two bouquets as a centerpieces on my dining and living room tables. I'm blessed to have Paper Portrayals be a part of our special day to help make it a more memorable one for us all! Thank You!”

"I couldn’t be more pleased or grateful."
"When I hired Paper Portrayals to dress our store window at Windsor Wine Merchants, it was in dire need of attention. I was hoping that the sketches would translate into a respectable display. Instead, it well exceeded my expectations. The lovely spring picnic display transformed our window into a fantastical, blooming, colorful, and inviting floral scene reminiscent of the Botanical Gardens. Not only has it grabbed our customer’s attention, but many others who were just passing by have dropped in to express their admiration. All of this paper magic, painstakingly handmade, has heightened our presence in the neighborhood. I couldn’t be more pleased or grateful."
John Lenartz, Windsor Wine Merchants (owner), Brooklyn, NY
"Classy, bold, and beautiful."
"Paper Portrayals provided beautiful Dahlia ornaments for my wedding shower favors as well as fun paper fortune cookies complete with quotes about love from the Beatles. Both were really interesting and beautiful and kept with the mellow but artistic theme that I valued. Classy, bold, and beautiful."
Meghan, Los Angeles, CA
"The perfect way to liven up my office."
"Danielle’s beautiful flowers were the perfect way to liven up my office. Now, even though my hectic schedule leaves little time to go outside and smell the roses, I can always take a moment to sit back and enjoy looking at them."
Rachel, Brownsville, TX
"Your artistry and professionalism made the event memorable. Thank you!"
"The bouquets, wreaths and peace crane garlands you prepared for my family reunion were absolutely stunning! My order arrived on time and I was delighted to see all the different varieties and colors of the flowers. Everyone was pleased to have a hand-crafted “party favor” to take home. Your artistry and professionalism made the event even more memorable. Thank you!"

"A finished product that went above and beyond my expectations"
Danielle at Paper Portrayals came through for me in a big way! I had no idea what I should buy as a first ("paper") anniversary present. I was waffling between Broadway tickets and a fancy pen, neither of which I thought my wife would find appealing. Then I started thinking about the gigantic ripoff that is the flower industry, and the king's ransom that you pay for something which will, with absolute certainty, die. The whole concept is ridiculous. So the idea hit me: PAPER FLOWERS modeled on her bridal bouquet. The gift would be apropos and would never die.
I found Paper Portrayals online and loved the bouquets on the website. They were stunning so they gave me confidence that Danielle could do the job, and she absolutely did. From the beginning, she was a consummate professional. She stayed in constant communication, actively engaged in the creative process, and provided a finished product that went above and beyond my expectations.
My wife loved the bouquet, and, best of all, these flowers aren't going anywhere!

"It's a one of a kind piece that I can keep forever."
"I wanted a paper flower bouquet for my wedding because I wanted something that was unique and would last beyond just the one day. I asked Danielle to make a bouquet based off a real one that I loved, in addition to a boutonniere and brooches. At the time, Danielle and I were in different states, which required detailed communication via email and phone with photos and drafts. The end result was that Danielle really understood what I was looking for and I was confident in her process without being present face-to-face. The bouquet she did was of incredible workmanship and absolutely beautiful. Not only did I treasure it the day of my wedding, my husband and I love that we're able to display it in our home. It's a one of a kind piece that I can keep forever."
Viviane, San Francisco, CA
"She executed my vision perfectly"
“Danielle did a fantastic job with my wedding flowers! I had a vision of what I wanted aesthetically, but didn't know much about flower types or names. Danielle taught me a bit about flowers and she executed my vision perfectly. I love that my bouquet and some of the arrangements are permanent keepsakes from the wedding. I'm happy to see such beautiful reminders of my wedding every day.”
Jackie, New York, NY
"They remind me of a day that was perfect in every way."
"Working with Danielle was one of the best decisions I made around planning our wedding. We hired her as our day of coordinator, but ended up using her to do so much more!
She did the calligraphy for our invitations, which turned out wonderfully. She even met with me just to review font styles!
Not only was she amazing at prepping and setting up everything we needed to make my vision come to life on our wedding day, working hand in hand with our other vendors, but she used her artistic skills to craft the most gorgeous giant paper flowers for our reception card table and made another giant peony for our flower girl to carry. I still keep the flowers as decor in our home and get compliments on them whenever someone comes to visit. They remind me of a day that was perfect in every way. We owe an enormous amount of that perfection to Danielle and her attention to detail. Not only is she an artist but an amazing coordinator. We feel so blessed to have been introduced to her!"

"The entire process was so stress-free"
"I can't say enough good things about the team at Paper Portrayals. I had what some might call a "non-traditional" wedding and I couldn't stand the thought of wasting a bunch of flowers on one day. Paper flowers were the perfect option for me- not only did I get to keep and gift them, but I got to pick colors and flowers that would never have been in season, and were made to match my wedding colors perfectly! Plus, the entire process was so stress-free. Danielle was a breeze to work with and the flowers and other items she created for my wedding were the easiest part of the process! I've recommended Paper Portrayals to easily a dozen friends, and I'm incredibly happy with the service and the flowers!"
Cristina, Brooklyn, NY
"Looking forward to my next order!"
"I ordered a bouquet of 14 flowers as a Valentine’s Day gift. Definitely the most unique flower arrangement I’ve ever given! Each flower was well crafted and absolutely beautiful! Danielle worked with all my preferences and created a stunning bouquet – I like to refer to them as the flowers that keep giving! Danielle even accommodated for the bouquet to travel unscathed with me from New York to Florida! I found doing business together was nothing but win/win. Looking forward to my next order!"
Jenny, Brooklyn, NY
"I wanted to do something...different"
"As a first time Maid of Honor planning my little sister’s bridal shower, I wanted to have as much fun with it as possible. Wary of the cliché party favors that are won during bridal shower games, I wanted to do something a little different. So, I contacted Paper Portrayals about making the flower arrangements for the tables at the shower, to be given away as prizes won during the games. They were a hit! I had 5 bouquets made to go along with the color scheme of the wedding and they came out more beautiful than I even imagined! Danielle hit the nail on the head with exactly what I was looking for, I couldn’t have been happier. Both the Paper Portrayals flower arrangements and the memories will last forever, and it still makes me smile when I see the bouquet sitting in my sister’s window."
