Foliage Bouquet

Cascading Greenery Bridal Bouquet by Tobey Nelson

Got Greenery?

Look out flowers – the greens are taking over!

This foliage bouquet uses texture, rather than color, to make its mark.   It’s a stunner, if I do say so myself!  With only one color at play it is the play of sheen and shape that matter.  I used several different ferns, along with Poppy pods, trailing Amaranth, and Clematis Vine (all locally or American grown!) to craft this contemporary bridal bouquet.

Do you like it?  How do you feel about using greenery and foliage instead of flowers?  Would you ever carry an all foliage bouquet for your wedding?  I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
