What a delight! Mel was so incredibly swift in communication and so gracious and thoughtful in her responses. I received my order as anticipated, for which I was utterly grateful for, however time had its own plan. My partner and I bunkered down together whilst snowed in here in North Texas cramping my plans of making these on my own to gift to her for Valentine's Day. Such a change in plans worked out for the best, however, because we made them together creating such a fun and exciting moment to share.
I highly recommend whether you wish to make a loved one's day or to show yourself some love by creating such a beautiful bouquet to admire.
They arrived today -- and they're absolutely lovely.
The roses are a lot more delicate looking than the ones in the picture.
They arrived extremely well-packed (rigid box lined with plenty of bubble wrap inside), and each individual corsage was packaged in its own gauzy bag, which makes for a nice presentation when you're handing your wedding party members their corsages.
These flowers are so beautiful and intricate, but once you look closer and realize there is a message on the perfectly folded flower is just amazing.
Not to mention they were packaged securely, shipping was super fast, and Mel is so great at communicating about the details of the order, follow up, etc.
I'd highly recommend anything from her!
You will not be disappointed!
The note cards were a huge hit for my daughters class Valentine’s Day celebration! My timeline was tight and Mel went above and beyond to ensure our order was received quickly. Communicating with her was simple, fast, and such a joyful experience.
This interaction is the epitome of why I love shopping from small creative business owners - real human relationships, creativity, joy, and super fun projects! )
La rose est en tout point conforme aux photos, c'est parfait ! Je cherchais un cadeau original et cet origami a comblé mes attentes. Mention spécial aux créatrices de BeeMelloFlowers qui ont été très prévenantes et efficaces du 1er contact jusqu'à la livraison.
Je recommande chaudement leurs réalisations ! :)
This will be an highlight at my wedding ! Mel was very understanding and folded paper in her flights while on vacation to get my huge order done as fast as possible. Two weeks !! Keeping me up to date on each steps. Customized like I have never seen...
Truly the best experience I ever had. If I could, I would give 10 out of 5 stars.
Mel was a hero in my situation. I was getting ready to go away for a small trip to celebrate my one year wedding anniversary but was having a really hard time finding something as a gift for the occasion. Mel noticed I opted for the fastest shopping possible and made sure I got it in time!
This is such a gorgeous piece! I got it as one of my best friend’s 1st anniversary (paper) & I know she is going to LOVE it! The quality is amazing and the owner was very prompt and caring about her order. ✨OBSESSED✨
I ordered this for my mom for mother's day. BeeMello was great about letting me know when she expected to have it done and then when it shipped. My mother was very surprised and pleased with them.
I can’t say enough about this shop. I loved these kits. The directions were so easy to follow. All the details were included and packed with such care. I made cards for my valentines and enjoyed the time to be creative. This was a lovely escape from work stress.
Looks great above our bourbon bar for Christmas (Wreath). Seller communicated everything and was very helpful. I will definitely be ordering more for family and myself for other holidays/times of the year.
These flowers were the perfect touch to our shower décor! Very quick turn around on shipping. Would highly recommend this shop!!!
Retired architect, mother of two girls, supervisor of two cats, and avid crafter.
Crafting has always been a therapeutic outlet for me, and as an architect, the shapes and folds of origami are infinitely intriguing. Constructing something new and beautiful from a single sheet of paper is a true architectural dream.
I’m fond of creating color pallets for my flowers that don’t necessarily match what you’d find in the natural world because I believe art and making are rooted in exploration and expression. But if you crave a traditional array of colors, I’m thrilled to make those for you, too. Your happiness and vision are my top priorities! To me, it’s not about racing to finish an order and move on to the next, it’s about infusing love and care into each piece I make.
A gift of live flowers is fleeting, but a Bee Mello origami flower is a lasting keepsake. The time and dedication that goes into a handmade gift make it special. Bouquets and wall art take many hours and a lot of love to craft, and I think that says ‘thank you’ or ‘I love you’ better than real flowers ever could.
If you have an idea or project in mind and require a helping hand to bring it to life, please don’t hesitate to reach out! I enjoy collaborating with clients and aiding in their vision.
The Origins of Bee Mello ❤
I moved to the US from Brazil in 2000, and began volunteering at my daughters’ school making collages, party decorations, flower arrangements, and even a few theater backdrops and costumes!
I started folding origami flowers to give to friends for birthdays, holidays, and just because. One day, as I was getting ready for a fundraiser for my daughter’s dance competition, an office aide suggested I make an online shop and sell my flowers online to raise the money. And so I did.
Now that my girls are older, a portion of the profits of Bee Mello Flowers go directly to local hospitals and retirement homes. I know I’ve been blessed in my life, so I want to give back where I can.
When I'm not working on my Origami Flower shop, you’ll find me playing with my cats, watching a movie with my husband, relishing a sunset with my family, or walking the neighbor's dogs!
The date is approaching fast.
I'll be donating my Origami roses by Christmas once again;
and you can help my cause by having a rose donated in your name, or in the name of a loved one!

"I asked Mel to create an anniversary bouquet using my bridal bouquet as inspiration. She was awesome to work with and... what a beautiful keepsake she created! Now we have a lovely reminder of our anniversary that we can enjoy everyday!
"Her favorite flowers are Peonies & Daisies.
Can you make her a bouquet in her favorite colors: red, white and purple?
I want to brighten her day, and have her think of me everyday when looking at them!
"Dear Mel, I really appreciate you and the time it takes to assemble a bouquet like this.
Thinking of my friend during the difficult time of loosing a loved one, and hoping to share some love comfort."
"These are without a doubt my favorite flowers"
This was a custom Rose bouquet sent to a very special mother for Mother's day.
Made of Jordi Adel, Yagi Yara & Mori roses.
How fun and original it was to create over 100 Origami heart name tags for a wedding in Paris!
The wedding theme was inspired by Japanese culture and décor, and delicate origamis were displayed throughout.
Each guest received an origami favor to take home.
The bride's grandpa wrote a love book... she asked me to create 24 Boutonnieres with the pages of his book to gift to her family members to wear on her wedding ceremony, then keep as a special keepsake.
These matched the flowers I created for her Wedding bouquet.

Bee Mello started with the idea to donate everlasting roses at retirement homes and to cancer patients.
We've been donating them ever since, at hospitals & retirement homes, or randomly to strangers around town.
Often asked by clients and friends if they could help the cause, we decided to create a Sponsorship program with that in mind.
Click in the link below to make a donation and sponsor one (or multiple) rose(s) in your name or in honor of a friend / family member to a cancer patient.
Roses are donated locally in San Diego at Cancer treatment centers, and we'll share a photo on our social media when a donation is done in your name.
I've seen up-close how much these patients appreciate the love and support from a stranger at this difficult time of their fight.
