I cannot tell you how many times I’ve heard the phrase “Anything but Carnations” from my brides. And before I got into this business, I was just like them, thinking Carnations looked cheap and common and had pretty much zero appreciation for them. But since I started designing with flowers I have seen so many amazing Carnations… gorgeous colors and such a variety. Not only that but they are super hardy, standing up to rough handling and lack of water. Now let’s not insult them anymore. They deserve our love. When used in the right way, Carnations can look… well, expensive. Check out this gorgeous bouquet I made with some Carnations I received on my birthday to play with. Yes, giving me work is a gift ;-) Enjoy!
