The Carnation is making a comeback!

The carnation was once considered old-fashioned and many times thought of as just a ‘funeral flower’. What a shame! Such a beautiful flower that comes in a variety of gorgeous colors and is still relatively inexpensive. I am happy that so many brides are open to using this flower in their weddings these days. It has great texture and blends well with flowers such as hydrangeas and roses. It also has great impact done in mass for compact designs. A quick search on Pinterest and you will find lots of examples. I’ve attached a couple including a wreath that we did for a wedding last November that incorporated dark purple and red carnations. If you like full and lush floral designs, add carnations to your must-have list!
