Carnations Lavish? Come on!? Really?!

Before today I never would have thought that carnations could look so lavish. And, after seeing these images I can assure you that you will be a huge carnation fan, too. I know they have a bad reputation. But believe me, carnations are the new sensation!

Inexpensive & Classy Centrepieces

There are a few things that make carnations very attractive for weddings... first and foremost, they are easy on the pocket compared to other types of flowers. If you are a bride on a budget they are a beautiful cost-cutting solution.  Second, they come in hundreds of natural vibrant colors: purple, pink, red, orange, cream or blue shades. Plus they can be artificially colored, as well. And last but not least, they last... once carnations are in full bloom they can stay fresh and fragrant for up to 3 weeks! If you choose carnations for your wedding decor, here is the trick to make this budget-friendly flower look like a million bucks... use carnations in lush groupings of the SAME COLOR. With a little creativity and the right amount of style, sky is the limit with carnations. Take a look at these gorgeous carnation arrangements and see what I mean.
