I heard on the grapevine recently that the widely considered fuddy duddy Carnation was back on the wedding scene and to expect it as a bride's must have repertoire. And to be honest I wasn’t surprised because they are virtually indestructible and therefore absolutely perfect for the ever impressive installations.
Looking for inspiration for the January recipe I stumbled across the fact that the carnation is in fact the flower for January and so it seemed as though once again the floral choice for next months recipe had presented itself.
I have chosen less indulgent artificial flowers for January, because after the excesses of the festive period it’s often nice to clear the clutter away and start the new year with a clean deck. Not least the lesser content will be a welcome nod to our straining purse strings.
The ingredients to this arrangement are:
1 x Single Brown Fern
2 x Branch Spray
1 x Pussy Willow Spray
2 x White Silk Garden Rose
5 x Pale Pink Carnation
1 x White Vase
For this very simple arrangement, I’ve just cut all my items at various lengths and let them sit as they fall.
