I love all types of flowers but the most stunning arrangements I’ve seen are the ones comprised of jewel tones. The great thing about using jewel tones is that your flowers don’t have to be fussy or expensive because the colors themselves are so gorgeous and dramatic.
For this bouquet, I used inexpensive carnations in lavender, violet, plum and burgundy. Then I arranged them in a simple, purple glass vase. And because carnations are so hardy, this bouquet will last much longer than one made from roses or tulips. Easy, pretty and long-lasting…when it comes to flowers there’s not much more you could ask for.
