Poppies are known for their exquisite colors. We chose a simple white extra fine crepe paper for our flowers, but we encourage you to play around with other colors of crepe for more vibrancy! For our floristic crepe for our poppies’ centers, we used a Goldenrod color. Again, feel free to give other crepe colors a try!
