I found some river oats and dark pink celosia at Abide-a-while Nursery recently, and I just had to find a reason to use them in a floral arrangement. I also came across some purple Stokes’ aster and yellow craspedia (aka billy buttons). I thought these flowers (and their colors) were the perfect ingredients for a boho styled bouquet, boutonniere, and centerpiece.
I played around with these same flowers a little bit to make a different boho bouquet ….
In the boutonniere on the left below, I combined the celosia and Stokes’ aster. I kept it simple and added seeded eucalyptus to the billy button. In the last boutonniere, green pyracantha (aka firethorn) berries showcase a pink spray rose. The white accent is wax flower.
Yes, this arrangement has pink variegated carnations in it! It also contains billy balls, white lisianthus, pink spray roses, wax flower, river oats, and various clippings from my yard.
