Lunaria

Are you familiar with Lunaria (aka money plant, honesty, or silver dollars)? If you’re looking for a neutral material to add interest and movement to an arrangement or bouquet, the papery membrane of the Lunaria pod with its beautiful silvery sheen may be a good choice. And a couple of bonuses – it’s long lasting and available year-round. Use it in a monobotanical design or mix with with dried/fresh flowers. If you’re feeling particularly creative, incorporate Lunaria into a larger structure or suspended design. We’re awe-struck by Solabee Flowers who wove it into a stunning curtain used as a ceremony backdrop (pictured below).

Anthurium

Gone are the awkward arrangements of years past with one or two bright red stems of anthurium calling attention away from the cohesiveness of the design. Cracking the code for designing with such a strong shape isn’t easy, but we’ve found a few cutting edge designers who are striking the perfect balance using stems of anthurium in subtle colors and combining them with both textural foliage and soft blooms. We’re loving the result – a striking modern edginess juxtaposed with a softer aesthetic.
