Baby’s Breath Is Back!

Rather than pairing it with a rose or a Carnation and fern, Brides are looking for a new look for Baby’s Breath. Popular and beautiful is a singular expression, either as a centerpiece or as a bridal or bridesmaid’s bouquet.  Another way it is lovely is submerged, with a floating candle on top.

Lace is really hot for 2013, and I think the two are good partners.  I predict this trend will continue!
