If you want the babies breath to be the focus, pick other flowers in soft colors like blush and pale pink, so there is no pop of color.

@anenglish15:  Since you’re using burlap, I’d definitely consider either daisies or hydrangea. here are some examples

I think baby’s breath and another flower of small clusters would look nice. Maybe some lilacs? There are beautiful ones that are white and purple. Or for something more rustic and less bold, maybe lavender?

Gerbera daisies are great with babys breath. I have pretty much the same theme going as you, minus the milk glasses. I think the gerbera daisies are cute and rustic and they go well. If you want something a bit more romantic I would go with hydrangea.

I know yellow isn’t one of your colors, but I think billy balls would look great with those colors and with your theme!

I should note that I have no ability to stick with colors or themes.

I like the lilacs idea — they’re kind of the same ‘texture’ as baby’s breath, but you can get gorgeous shades of purple (pinkish all the way to bluish, depending on your pallette) ones! (plus they smell divine. and i have fond memories of my gma’s lilac bush so maybe I’m kinda biased.)

ETA – I just saw your palette but I’m kind of imfamous for throwing in another colour just to make my ideas work lol

I would add greens. Green is a neutral colour in floral arrangements.
