Forever Flowers

I love bouquets of fresh flowers, but nothing is worse than seeing your beautiful arrangement die off in only a few days.

Here are some great alternatives that have taken root in the wedding world that I think would be great as home decor too... Brooch & Door Knob Bouquets!!

Amy Atlas of Sweet Designs Blog just did a feature on Brooch Bouquets that she gathered from various other blogs... The images are below, but see her original post here for explanation and photo credits. Gorgeous!!!

Another favorite wedding/inspiration blog is 100 Layer cake, and they just recently featured a "Real Wedding" that was vintage in design, and the bride carried a bouquet made of door knobs and drawer pulls from Anthropologie! Love that idea!!
While these bouquets may be initially more expensive than a typical grocery store bundle of blooms, I think the impression that they give will last forever. Definitely worth the investment!
