I just told my mom we need to look at it yesterday! She looked at me like I was crazy, but it’s so pretty! I’ve actually always liked it in flower arrangements :), but it looks amazing by itself!

I am using it for the centerpieces with assorted green, crystal and milkglass vases.  I think it’s so fun and whimsical.  We’re getting married in a garden so I own’t be decorrating for the ceremony.

Yes, I’ve actually been thinking of using it for ceremony decor, and your second photo was one of my same inspiration shots that I clipped! Was also thinking about this one.

@upstatebroad: I was originally looking for a small white flower since our colors are pale blue and white, and I felt really stupid when I saw baby’s breath in a Martha Stewart article and realized I hadn’t considered it :).

Yes I have. Our ceremony will be in the woods so very green and dark. I have been wanting to bring a lot of white to it through flowers, but most white flowers aren’t so cheep and look to fancy for what we are going for. I also came across some photos of baby’s breath all by themself and loved it.

So we are going to plant lily of the valley around the site for littel pops of white and then fills mason jars with baby’s breath to put on the edge of the issle. I hope it looks as beautiful in real life as it does in my head.

These are some of the photos I had found and really liked

I love this idea!  I’ve thought of it before, but kind of forgot about it until I saw this post. I didn’t have any inspiration pictures to refresh my memory, but now I do! 

Even though we’re getting married in December (26 days!! yeay!), we’re having a reception for friends and family probably in April. I think this would be a fantastic way to decorate the venue for our reception. We won’t want to spend a lot of money, but we want a romantic look. 

We haven’t decided on whether we’ll have the reception outdoors or indoors, but either way I think the baby’s breath would look beautiful.

@upstatebroad:  Thanks!  I am getting so excited!!!! I think it would look lovely in December also, except we don’t have to do any decorating for our wedding. We’re getting married in the garden of a B&B in Savannah, GA, and the B&B takes care of everything.  We will have to decorate for our reception this spring though.

I was going to have baby’s breath bridesmaid bouquets until my florist suggested that I use Solidago, since part of me really wanted yellow flowers and it looks similar to baby’s breath.  They were awesome.
