Are Carnations a Dirty Word?

For some, it is.  Charlotte called them filler flowers.  To me, they are gorgeous. 



Casa Sugar recently did a post about bringing back carnations.  I do hope that carnations make a comback!  They are perfect if you like dense flowers.  Similar to roses, carnations are better for large arrangements.

    I LOVE carnations! Picture #2 will actually be my reception decor. To me, the word rose is a much dirtier word than carnation.I think carnations have just gotten a bad wrap from the sad food coloring dyed ones at the grocery store–which is definitely not a carnation in all it\’s glory.

    Carns have had a bad rap for as long as I can remember but I am so excited to be using them \”pave'd\” for our wedding centerpieces. I think they have a fun, flirty look and should come back full force.
