Flower Of The Week

25 Feb

This week’s flower has gotten a bad rap, but when used correctly it is quite beautiful.
Gypsophilia

Gypsophilia can also be known as just gyp, but is most commonly referred to as baby’s breath. It is usually seen in white, but it can also be pink. Everyone has seen it as a filler for rose arrangements and corsages, but the current trend is to use it for weddings. It is usually seen alone in bouquets, centerpieces, aisle markers etc.

Baby’s breath comes in several different varieties, some have tons of tiny blooms (Million Star) and some have bigger blooms, but less of them (New Love). It is very versatile and can be dressed up for an elegant affair, or dressed down for a rustic one.

Meaning: Festivity, Innocence, Pure of Heart, Happiness (kind of perfect for a wedding)
