This could be Emilia sp

Emilia coccinea (Sims) G.Don

but according to me it may not be Emilia sp.

Since the flowers are in an unopened condition I cannot say anything about the flowers but if we have a close look of the lower portion of the plant it is Youngia japonica.

A small potted plant.

miniature aster.

miniature aster or china aster

If not wrong, it is Callistephus chinensis.

My guess- Bracteantha bracteata .
…, were d bracts papery ??

No Neha ji, it is not Helichrysum bracteata or Bracteantha bracteata now known as Xerochrysum bracteatum (Vent.) Tzvelev
Perhaps true identity has to be found
