It's been a few weeks since we did this wedding - I forgot how pretty it was!
bouvardia in the market that week, and a few hints of raspberry dianthus underneath it all.
In a mixed bouquet there are usually one or two stars and the rest are backup singers. But never underestimate the power of a great backup singer or secondary flower!
I know people are apt to refer to them as filler, but they are more than that. They are supporting players - sometimes structurally, quite literally supporting another beautiful but perhaps week stemmed bloom, but more often than not, they are there to support the diva blossom visually by providing a solid note of color or texture beneath it.
Diva status in a bloom isn't limited to the uber fancy or the mega-expensive. Often the flower that commands the bouquet is defined by it's context within the bouquet.
Kind of fun thinking about flowers as divas and backup singers!
