we are a fun and contemporary
floral and event design company based in Philadelphia
At Papertini, we provide custom florals and décor for weddings and special events. We thoughtfully integrate the personality, budget, and vision of our clients into each event through flowers, innovative materials, and props.
What Does Full Service Mean?
Every event is the opportunity to create an experience for your guests from the moment they arrive. Our designers will work closely with you from consultation all the way through to executing the finishing touches on your big day. We can cover all the bases, from floral arrangements to linens, place settings, signage, lighting, draping, and furniture rentals - everything the eye sees is part of our design palette. Full service includes all of your floral arrangements and décor, day-of setup, and teardown by our team.
Floral arrangements include bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, hair pieces, ceremony installations, centerpieces, suspended décor, photo-booth backdrops, etc.
Props include arches, chuppahs, candle holders, table numbers, lanterns, balloons, paper florals, easels, decorative elements, etc.
Custom signage helps the flow of your event and can include welcoming guests, seating charts, menu boards, signature drinks, directions, etc.
Each event is custom designed, and cost depends on so many factors that we do not provide pricing without an initial consultation. In general, we have a minimum order of $ 5,000 excluding taxes.
Meet the Papertinians
Tanti, Owner/Principal Designer, is a self-taught floral designer who learned the trade through years of hard work and experimentation. Fascinated by modern abstract sculptures, but also inspired by Disney’s old school cartoons and Japanese animations, she finds the creative process therapeutic and a great way to let her imagination run wild. When she’s not in the design studio, she can be found reading mangas, watching Korean soap operas, or whipping up a feast for friends.
Karena, Designer, is a lifelong creator and loves playing with flowers. She has a Bachelor of Architecture from Drexel University, and worked for over a decade designing, detailing, and managing the construction of projects before the interconnected world of design brought her to Papertini in 2012. Event and floral design is truly a culmination of Karena's passion for creating beautiful spaces, her love of connecting the built and natural environments, and her heartfelt creativity. When she doesn't have a handful of flowers, she can be found digging in her garden, walking in the forest, dreaming, yoga-ing, honoring nature's rhythms, and raising her fearless, adventuresome child.
