Scabiosa Pods and Pearls


Ok even though I am such a gushing flower fan-girl, I don’t love ALL flowers.  Well actually, I do love all flowers, but I don’t love all uses of flowers.  I am not a big fan of really precious floral arrangements (the worst offender  in my opinion are bouquets featuring Stephanotis with rhinestones or pearls in the middle of each flower- I think it’s just too…too ; )

And in general, I don’t love inorganic elements mixed with flowers – I love fruit, veggies, branches, and all kind of organic non florals, but never been keen on the jeweled butterflies and such.

So imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon a bouquet that I find really interesting and appealing featuring roses and a ton of be-pearled flowers!  What makes this one really work for me is the use of pearls in scraggly Scabiosa pods rather than a more precious flower.  The bouquet is still VERY feminine and fancy, but that’s offset so nicely by the dark gray scabiosa.  (I do wish that Scabiosa could have a more attractive name- same with Craspedia ; )

I’m a convert! And all thanks to My Splendid Sentiments  out of San Diego.
