Someone contacted to make several baby’s breath flower crowns for an upcoming wedding this weekend in New Orleans.

Baby’s breath is so undervalued.  It got a bad rap due to being overused as filler in cheap red rose packages from Walgreens.  I was ecstatic she wanted to use them in crowns for her and her girls.

It’s time for a baby’s breath comeback.

Just another excuse to sit around, eat Dove choco-minis and make flower crowns.  An ideal day in the House of Modern Vintage household.  A day like most others, only difference was this time I was paid.unhelpful helper

Here’s my unhelpful helper.  Some of us ate too many choco-minis and some of us ate too much baby’s breath.  I’m surprised we got anything accomplished.

When I dropped in the florists to pick up some baby’s breath, the elderly lady behind the counter commented she didn’t understand why more people don’t use it.  “It’s cheap.  Shove some in mason jars and there’s your wedding”.

So keep that extravagant option in mind for future reference if you’re planning a wedding.
