This little beauty is a humble edition to any arrangement. It never tries to steal the spotlight but in my opinion does so much to enhance the look.

Scabiosa lends itself well to natural themes and being in season during spring and summer it pairs as beautifully with pastelly coloured fluffy flowers as it does natural tones and a more rustic or whimsical look.

Flores Del Sol & JL Designs

The bouquet features echeveria succulents, Champagne and Metallina roses, scabiosa pods, smoke bush, unripe blackberries, and peach hypericum made by housemartin,  and the gorgeous hairpiece seen on Brooklyn Bride

This bouquet freshens things up using peach calla lilies, pink roses, fiddlehead ferns, scabiosa pods and more, by Branch Out Floral and Event Design in San Francisco.

This one below from sweet pea floral is so colourful and stunning…I had to give it two images!!! I love that thank’s to a brides relaxed vision, the designer was free to collect the most charismatic flowers from the market.  Orange dahlia, coral zinnia, fuchsia anemone, purple sweet pea, red cockscomb, red and green ranunculus, scabiosa pods, english lavender, and veronica. LOVE IT!!!

If there ever was an ‘it’ flower of the moment it would be Craspedia, also affectionately known as billy buttons.

The bright yellow craspedia balls quickly rose as a favourite flower of mine and I especially love a wedding we did that featured these little delights.

(they work so well with succulents too…perfect!) pink twig floral boutique

Inspired by this and the never ending supply of inspirational weddings from blogs such as green wedding shoes, craspedia have become a perfect way to inject a sense of fun into a wedding setup. They can be interpreted a million ways, and could be described as elegant, rustic, whimsical, fun, funky…the list goes on. Any which way, craspedia balls add so much visual and textural interest to any set up.

In terms of a wedding flower they are perfectly suitable for boutonnieres, corsages and can be incorporated in a small bouquet…

….they can even be painted (but personally I think they are perfect just the way they are!)

I love them equally in the home and have one on my table right now, a single ball on a long stem poking out of an old beer bottle I have recycled as a vase. They make a fun minimalist statement as a single stem in a vase and work equally as well used on mass.

Indigenous to Australia and New Zealand they are surprisingly a member of the Daisy family. They have an long vase life, around 10-14 days, and dry extremely well, retaining the yellow colour.

These balls are just so versitile, check them out in this beautiful art installation from Abigail Doan

These really are a unique and amazing flower!
