Admittedly we do winter a little different here in Tucson. While the rest of the country is looking to take photos in front of snowdrifts, and serving hot chocolate to their guests – we are enjoying some cooler weather sans snow and ice.
One of the hottest color palettes of the season is ivory and gray – and not surprisingly, we have our own take on that as well. Here in desert country, succulents are always trending as a go-to floral detail to add to bridal bouquets and centerpieces. The succulents bring a different shade of gray to the party – while other regions look to charcoal or slate gray, our choice is the green gray of the desert blooms.
What better way to set of greenish gray and white ivory roses than with greenery; these bouquets take the traditional gray palette and liven it up with broad green petals, berries and unique floral accents. If you would like to play on the winter theme a little bit more, spray with sparkling glitter, or add “ice cube” crystals to the clear vases for a chilly effect.
Succulents, as well as eucalyptus leaves, will look beautiful in centerpieces when placed in pewter or silver bowls or flower boxes; the arrangements can be illuminated with extra wide pillar candles with multiple wicks for a flickering, campfire effect.
