Dark Purple Bougainvillea


A gorgeous deep purple bougainvillea featuring three groupings of blossoms & deep plum colored bracts, inter-spaced between vibrant green leaves. This spray of unique gumpaste tropical flowers make the perfect cake topper any time of the year!

This spray of bougainvillea is approximately 5" long and each leaf, blossom, and bract is wired together on sturdy dark green floral wire, to provided maximum flexibility and positioning when placing into your sugar flower arrangement.

Each spray is made by hand, so if you're looking for a different color, such as the more traditional hot pink/fuchsia colors, please don't hesitate to contact me for a custom listing!

I love to see bougainvillea paired with other tropical flowers, and some of my favorite combinations are:

-moth orchids https://www.etsy.com/listing/385051752/
-succulents https://www.etsy.com/listing/524950201/
-hibiscus https://www.etsy.com/listing/475168061/
-and even lilac! https://www.etsy.com/listing/288211739/

I make every single item in my shop, and processing time takes about 1-2 weeks to allow time for me to create each flower, add vibrant colors, and give them enough time to full dry before shipping.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

I am happy to make custom sugar flower orders for you! Please share with me your event date, the size of your cake, the colors you're using, any inspiration photos (bouquets, other cake photos, etc), and I'll work with you to create something unique. Custom orders may take longer to create, so be sure to place your order in advance, I recommend at least 4-6 weeks before your event!

Care instructions

Gumpaste flowers have an extremely long shelf life, due to their sugar content and low moisture. As long as the flowers are taken care of properly, they'll last for years! Keep the flowers out of direct sunlight (it can fade the colors) as well as extreme heat/cold, and especially out of humidity. Some refrigerators are very humid, and can cause the flowers to melt, so I recommend placing the flowers on your cake before serving. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Each flower arrives in a box suitable for storage and comes with a care guide.

How soon will I receive my flowers?

Processing time is typically 1-2 weeks. Some larger orders, like the arrangements or a custom order, may take 3 weeks. Shipping takes 3 days via USPS Priority Mail.
If you are concerned about your order arriving in time, please contact me with your event date to confirm that the flowers will arrive before your event. If you need your flowers within 2 weeks, please select "Rush Processing" at checkout.
There is also a "Rush Shipping" option, so that your flowers will arrive in 1-2 days via USPS Priority Express.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions!

Will the flower look exactly like the photo?

Each flower is made to order, so some differences may occur. Just like in nature, no two flowers are alike! Colors may vary slightly as well due to screen differences.

Are sugar flowers edible?

Sugar flowers are made with edible ingredients (gumpaste, egg whites, sugar) however they also contain wires which are used to hold the petals together and arrange the flowers. The wired flowers are not meant to be eaten, and should be removed prior to serving your cake.

I live in Tampa. Can I pick up my flowers?

At this time, local pickup is not available. All orders will be shipped with USPS Priority Mail or First Class Mail where available, but since you are local, you should receive your flowers within one, possibly two, business days after shipping. Processing times are still 1-2 weeks, however rush options are available at checkout.
