Friday Florals – Carnations

Carnations, do you love them or hate them?

A lot of people I asked expressed a negative opinion about this flower but there were the occasional few who celebrated it for it’s prettiness.

It seems that the humble carnation is having a comeback moment featuring in both retro/vintage weddings and those of a more glamorous affair.

Either way I feel it’s time to do away with your preconceived notions about this bloom and embrace it’s beauty.

I mean, could it be any prettier?
