Crowning Inspiration - Carnations

When life gives you lemons – make lemonade!

That is what comes to mind when I think of a single carnation flower. They are kind of like the bittersweet lemon. I would never use (in fact I make a sour face) a carnation within a bouquet of other flowers. But if used solely, and in large groupings, they can produce fabulous, chic and affordable arrangements! They last longer than other common wedding flowers, they can take a little more abuse as a blanket for escort cards or wish-boards, you can tear off their petals for isle runners or flower girl tossing, and best of all, they can be died just about any color you want! In fact, I would love to do an ENTIRE wedding with just carnations – the possibilities would be endless!!!

Remember that Sex and the City episode where Carrie gets a bouquet of carnations from Big...and then knocks them over!?! The pink ones...by themselves, they are quite pretty.
