Baby's Breath Bouquets

Brides are doing sweet arrangements and modern clusters of Baby's Breath aka Gypsophila. Baby's Breath has been making a Big comeback. It can be oh so chic just by itself and it's a wallet's best friend.

Here Baby's Breath is mixed with Narcissus flower spaced evenly throughout the bouquet.

Here the Baby's Breath is left fairly natural, no shaping or trimming. I recommend
for you a more rounded and modern look. To do this the bouquets are trimmed and
filled in or added too which adds density to create the mounded top.

Though not blue or all white I think you can see this is a nice treatment for Carnations and Baby's Breath.
Simply yet so elegant.



Hi Kirsten, I just figured out what green berries you were talking about, at least I think so. They're called chinaberries. Available in the fall and they're about the same size as the hypericum, only rounder.

Mystery solved, I think. Can't believe I didn't think of these as they are one of my favorites.


Wedding Flowers

Spider Mums a member of the Chrysanthemum family has long thin petals, hence the common name. Placing these in your bud vases will add some visual weight to your arrangement.

Lisianthus, below, is an elegant rose-like beauty that can really take the heat. This gorgeous flower, native to Mexico, has long held an important role in communicating a deep, heartfelt, romantic desire.

Lisianthus brings its own special grace to a bouquet. Below is a simple bouquet of just Lisianthus and Dusty Miller.

In the bouquet below you see Freesia, Roses and Lisianthus. Though Lisianthus is often compared to a Rose I think in this picture you can see the difference clearly.

And of course there's always the Hydrangeas which could be used for a beautiful bouquet.
