Green with Envy
As we said last week you don't have to simply use traditional greens in your arrangements to increase the density of the look. Adding depth and character to the flowers can be created with with an abundance of alternatives from Blackberries to Chilies,to Baby Alliums and Heather. Lavender or Herbs, to Mints and Grasses.
All of these can be combined with traditional Salal and eucalyptus. Birch or Berried Ivy to completely alter the aesthetics of a desired look. You should use greens like accessories to enhance a particular theme and garnish it with a purpose.
As we all saw in this years Royal wedding the pure genius and simplicity of using greens and foliage, trees and country grasses to develop an understated look of breathtaking class.
