Rather surprisingly, blue has been quite a popular color this year - and especially the specific color combination of blue and white.
Another surprise has been the resurgence of baby's breath. After years of (rather harsh) banishment from the world of 'good taste', baby's breath is back. What works best is not using it in a mixed arrangement so popular in the 70s in 80s, but using it as it grows in the garden: in dense, bush-like quantities.
The effect is pretty cool and for a hot early fall day, the look is lacy, ethereal, and natural - the baby's breath arrangements are cloud-like across the room.
Flowers pictured include: baby's breath, white hydrangea, blue hydrangea, white vendela roses.
