Flower & business design insights, inspiration, and advise for the modern day florist (or wannabe florist).
I love Baby's Breath. It was not always this way though. About 10 years ago, as a newbie designer, all of my designs had excessive amounts of baby's breath. My logic was, it makes my arrangements prettier. I soon got introduced to so many other filler options like genestra (my fave), wax flower, and lilimonium. After a while I just never ordered it to work with. I gave up on my light and airy first friend.
It wasn't baby's breath that was wrong it was me. When designing with these angelic blooms keep these three principles in mind:
It works beautifully as an accent to the bride’s bouquet or the centerpieces and also functions magnificently as an understated bouquet for bridesmaids or an angelic halo for the flower girl! If done properly, Baby’s Breath can preserve well!
And for the finale...
This is a piece I designed a couple of years ago for RLR Style Firm. I used a dress-form to construct it. The entire piece took a few hours to make with wire, cold glue, and lots of floral tape.
