watercolors by Bambi Papais

These four puzzles of watercolors by Bambi Papais were commissioned as a set. The customer wrote:

We had read of old puzzle parties that were popular in the 30’s and 40’s where each person sits down with their own puzzle and thought that would be fun to do sometime since we have only worked a single puzzle together. One friend suggested making it extra hard by putting the pieces for all 4 puzzles in the center of the table – all jumbled together! We thought how fun it would be if the puzzles were nice wooden ones. ... Someone threw out the idea of helping to justify the expense if each got one puzzle and planning 4 of these puzzle parties so that each time each member sat with a different puzzle - that would give us 4 different nights of fun if we rotate the puzzles each time (maybe more if they are difficult enough that we can’t finish in an evening). ... The more I thought about it the more it sounded like a great idea and could be a surprise gift of thanks to my group of friends for just being who they are.

What a great idea! And it became reality with the Bouquet Set. Each puzzle is cut with the same style and same level of difficulty. They make excellent puzzles on their own, with their mind-bogglingly irregular edges and tricky cuts. But when mixed all together they become even more fun.

One "key", shown above, is given to each puzzler to start their puzzle with, and the rest of the pieces are all mixed up in the center in a giant pile. Then the fun (fighting?) begins!
