Art Nouveau Flower Inspiration

I came across these cakes the other day by Maggie Austin:

… and I might have died for a second from the beauty of it all. These are hand-painted fondant miracles in the spitting image of Louis Comfort Tiffany, art nouveau master craftsman. Art Nouveau drew its forms and lines from nature- especially flowers. We’d love to make some floral designs for an event worthy of that cake!

For example: This striking print of a few colorful blooms to use as inspiration.

And a calla lily, parrot tulip, iris, or fuji mum that we could choose from to stick with the theme. What do you think?
