I love to decorate with fresh flowers and am always looking for creative and inexpensive ways to add them to my home. So, while doing a little research on flower trends, I was surprised that my reasearch lead me back to a staple in the flower family–Carnations!
I’ve always thought of carnations as a cheap filler flower, and have made it a mandate to my husband that if he sends me flowers, there are to be no carnations in the arrangement. Well, after realizing just how dynamic arrangements can be, made only with carnations, I’ve changed my tune.
Carnations can be beautiful!
Carnations are available in a load of colors, but if you can’t find that perfect hue, ask your florist to dye the carnations to match your favorite Pantone color. It can be done.
A little greenery added to a carnation arrangement gives these inexpensive flower a whole new look.
There are lots of carnation varities to choose from and you’re sure to find a style you love.
I am so glad I’ve discovered how beautiful and stylish Carnations can be. Now I can have fresh flowers in my home all the time and it won’t break the bank.
Why don’t you use carnations to create a beautiful arrangement for your home…and send me photos to share with my readers.
until next time…
