So after last weekend’s floral design workshop, I had a few bunches of leftover dusty miller that had been sitting in vases on the floor of our house for the past week, languishing (not languishing like wilting, it’s very hardy stuff, just being neglected by me!) I kept thinking about how pretty it was, in a big bunch all on its own, and decided to check out what a 100% dusty miller bouquet would look like, just to do *something* with it.
I have been seeing a few all succulent bouquets here and there lately, and this is kind of similar, no flowers, all soft gray/green, very relaxed and natural looking. I think it could make a really pretty bridesmaid bouquet (perhaps the bride has flowers with dusty mixed in and the girls have all dusty).
Here are my pics of the bouquet, with a sort of winter-y dark green and gold ribbon handle treatment. It could also look cool with a really bright, funky handle I think. These would be *ultra* easy to DIY! I used probably two bunches of dusty miller here all told, but removed some less attractive leaves and cut some bigger clumps off of their main stalk.
