When I first heard that, I thought: bland, plain, ugly. I mean, surely there is a reason that Baby's Breath has been known as a "filler" flower for so long. I don't even like Baby's Breath as a filler in bouquets, so I definitely thought I'd hate bouquets of only Baby's Breath.
That was until I saw this:
I can't believe how much I love this bouquet. It is so simple but so beautiful. The satin ribbon just really sets it off. As soon as I saw this bouquet, I did a little more research. Then I found this featured wedding on The Bride's Cafe. I'm in love.
I mean, look at this bouquet:
Ahhhh! I just love it! The bouquets are just so cute! And if those weren't enough, just look at these from the same wedding:
I just love the Baby's Breath boutonniere! It's just right.
And, if the bouquets and bouts weren't cute enough, how about a little Baby's Breath decor? So, so, so adorable!
I really want to do these bouquets. The only problem? Because of my budget, I'm DIYing my flowers. I will only be arriving in Pennsylvania on the Thursday before the Saturday wedding and there is going to be a ton of other stuff to do in those 2 days. I don't want to have to deal with putting together bouquets in that time. But, I don't like the look of the silk Baby's Breath as much as the real Baby's Breath.
I've come up with a few options. I am going to go to the local craft stores and see if I can find any silk Baby's Breath that I like. If I can't, I'm going to do a little flower drying experiment.
Sam's Club sells real flowers. They carry Baby's Breath for incredibly cheap. So, even if my experiment fails, I won't be out a whole lot of money. I found a few tutorials on how to dry Baby's Breath (I like this one the best) and I think I can make it happen.
I'm a little excited to see how it turns out. I'll be sure to keep you all updated on that adventure!
