Having tried to describe my thoughts to my family and close friends I was received with some ‘that sounds nice’ with a bit of a raised eyebrow comments! However I persevered and when I showed everyone my mock ups they absolutely loved the uniqueness.
Using Gypsophila as foliage, I arranged the flowers in gorgeous French vintage jars I'd sourced through a friend (and source of inspiration, you can see her own lovely creations here www.hellishdesigns.co.uk)
I also created the bouquets out of a smaller bunch of flowers, which my mum lovingly and beautifully wrapped together with ribbon.
Everybody was amazed at how effective the flowers looked and the nicest thing was I didn't have to throw them away, they became a lovely keepsake for our guests and for me!
