bad reputation

When I saw this picture, I pinned it. Why? Because it's gorgeous

But when I clicked through the picture, I learned it was a bunch of...CARNATIONS

Wait. What? Carnations? You mean women's most hated flower? 


So then I searched for more carnations, and was blown away. I actually fell in love with this cheap, accesible flower. 

I mean, look at these arrangements. Carnations have had a bad reputation because they are easy to find, and are super cheap. Well, I'm officially starting the petition to get their reputation back on track and give them a credible spot in the flower shop! 

Join me? 

Also, be sure to enter my Madison Elizabeth giveaway! You have until midnight tonight.

I so so agree. Love them! Especially in white for a wedding. I should've done that!

Landi {The Lifestyle Guide} said...

Couldn't agree more -- I think they're simply lovely! Especially all the colors!!

i think it all goes back to styling. if they're styled well no one would ever know!

I love them — they're actually my sorority's flower! So I've received them on happy occasions and will always associate them with that.

These are gorgeous! Who knew carnations could look that amazing?!

Viviana said...

You're SO right! These arrangements are all beautiful. They don't deserve the bad rep.

Carnations are my sorority's flower so I love them! They last for a very long time too - another reason they're so great!

Georgina Si said...

These arrangements are so lovely - it's nice to see such an affordable variety for a change!

Hannah said...

OMG I would have literally never guessed. The first picture is so do-able and since carnations are so affordable, it makes it even more fun to attempt :)
