If you've talked to me lately about any wedding topic, chances are I’ve found a way to weasel some chat about proteas into the conversation.
"Oh, you're looking for a DJ? Have you thought about putting a protea on his stand?"
"You know what I'm thinking would be a great addition to your wedding website? A picture of a protea."
"Let's find a protea flavored signature drink. Proteas for everyone!"
Seriously though, I’m pretty much smitten by these guys.
There are more than 130 varieties of these beauties and I love them because they walk a tension of bold yet simple. They play nice with a variety of other flowers - think succulents to tulips to hydrangeas to spider mums to greenery galore. And, they seem to accomplish a ‘rustic, woodsey’ look that so many Colorado brides are going for.
See how they can steal the show all on their own?
Here they are paired with a variety of other buds including peonies, tulips, succulents and even orchids. Is there anything a protea stem can't do? No.
And don't even get me started on personal florals! These bouquets are literally to die for.
Have a lovely weekend!
