>I am absolutely in love with wild flowers lately. They dry beautifully and make for such a unique looking arrangement! I’ve recently been on quite a thistle kick. Who knew that weeds could look so cool?! The best part is, they are fairly inexpensive. With the concern of real flowers wilting during a special event, you can rest assure that these bad boys won’t be dying for at least two weeks (or longer).
I also can’t seem to live without billy balls! (Don’t laugh…that’s really what they’re called)
The botanical name for them is Craspedia. They are those adorably cute yellow ball flowers. I think I may have found my new favorite flower. These guys are so simple yet they are certainly the highlight of any arrangement! Once again, these flowers dry very well and wilting should not be a concern.
I also LOVE the idea of adding extra scents to arrangements, such as rosemary, lavender, or maybe even a cinnamon stick or two! In general, most people want to stick to the plain and simple. The plain and simple is great. However, a dash of something unique is going to be far more memorable to those attending your event. So go on….live a little….get a bit crazy….and jazz things up. You won’t regret it!
