Unexpected: Green

I love working with all flowers, but I especially love it when the unexpected comes along.

My bride of early April, Liz, wanted something a little bit different. Her favorite flower is trick dianthus - unusual as its bloom is completely green and fuzzy - and she wanted her flowers not to be flowers, but greens. Lots and lots of greens with touches of the most beautiful yellow freesia. For the bouquets, I added orange ranunculus to the bridesmaids and white spray roses and vendela roses to the bridal, the latter featuring the trick dianthus.

The visual impact was quite striking and very fresh looking - what a lovely idea for spring!
