Wedding Flowers: Pincushion Proteas
How’s your week going, lovelies? I have the day off today, so let’s hope for some sunshine! I have the coolest post for you today, with one of my favourite types of flowers making another appearance. A while back, I did a roundup of protea goodness and while the popularity of the King protea continues to grow and grow both in SA and abroad, I’ve also been seeing pincushion proteas everywhere and I am absolutely crazy for them. They add such an interesting texture, not to mention a shot of intense colour, to any arrangement. And I’ve been delighted to find that they are incredibly versatile – adding that something special to romantic decor, or to modern city style, as well as rustic. Have a look below to see what I mean – some of these bouquets especially are among the most breathtaking I have seen in a while! Which one’s your favourite?
