Carnations

I have a few friends getting married this year and next, and I've offered to help find inspiration for their events. Most recently my friend LB and I talked flowers. Today, I came across this post from Ruffled and really loved the use of Carnations. As a January baby Carnations were often given to me on my birthday and for the longest time I wished for a different birthday flower. I think it was a classic example of wanting what you don't have. Now that I'm older they still aren't my favorite flower, but I don't dislike them the way I did when I was a kid. The way the Carnations are styled by Hana Style Design is ultra feminine and really beautiful in my opinion. Having experienced how expensive flowers can be I think Carnations could be a great solution to a beautiful bouquet on a budget.
