This Cheap Fabulous Wedding Tip is about the carnation, one of the most beautiful flowers and overlooked, and let's face it, many of us are flower snobs and we turn our nose down the Carnation. I will be honest and admit that the "snobbery" is not entirely our fault. We are conditioned to the Carnation associate with low price, low quality or funerals. It is usually used as a filler or an emphasis on a more popular flower like the rose. However, the popularity of the flower grow and one person to thank for that is Martha Stewart. Her love of carnations is slowly becoming contagious. Only, a carnation look like a small, twiggy flower with no real beauty, but with the right amount of creativity, carnations can be striking, not to mention budget friendly.
Imagine a group of carnations bundled in pink, yellow, red and orange. It is this type of control that an ordinary table with more flavor and pizzazz can give. It can also add a fun and whimsical feel of the day.
But what if your color palette is monochromatic, Carnations will still work for you? Of course they will, we must keep in mind that carnations can be as equally striking in color. A group of deep red carnations can evoke the same idea of romance as spicy red roses can. You can book a bed of carnations as a place for the seating cards.
