I think I’ve Fallen Again…

So I’ve talked kinda a lot about carnations here, and how gawgeous I think they are when used in masse.

Well, today I stumbled on the awesome Fiore Blossoms blog and saw these cute hanging pomanders:

So I had to post them here because they look SOOOOOO similar to my florist centerpiece mock-up–of which I shared a glimpse a few months ago. Here is the glimpse again:

It just has me excited again about these centerpieces, which will grace about half of our dinner tables! I don’t know..as I have been planning and blogging for nearly a year now, it’s easy to fall in love with other things and second-guess my choices.  

It feels good to fall back in love!

PS. The aforementioned blog, Fiore Blossoms is really, really good and excellent if you are needing some floral inspiration:)

    I am using something similar to the hanging pomanders for my wedding, only I am making them out of tissue paper. They look a lot like the carnations and you can get tissue paper cheap and in so many great shades. They are just going to augment the whole flower idea for me so that I don’t have to spend as much.

    Great pictures!

    Hi! I just found this today as I was perusing my analytics. I’m SO flattered! Thanks for the shout out and kind words. I’m happy to see someone else has seen the light on carnations too.

    I agree! I never thought I would admit to liking them, I always think of them as filler flowers. But, I like they way they look when they are pulled tightly together, and you can’t go wrong with the price!!
