- Wedding: Fireman’s Pavillion
While working in my my greenhouse for work, I took notice of the variegated colors and I thought “these would look nice in a floral arrangement”, not thinking anyone would ever do it. Turns out it’s an actual thing! Not sure if this is common place outside of my circle.
Set up the poll for fun. I’m curious to know what people think.

I love them! The were all over Pike Place Market around Thanksgiving! Loved them so much I had to snag a bouquet to go home with. I think it would look really great as a bridal bouquet, maybe with some additional accents like baby’s breath or something!

I think they look great, as well as succulents. I was thinking about adding succulents to my bouquet.
I would probably not go for a cabbage only bouquet, though, I would keep them small and add more greenery and flowers to it.

Jeeze this is a whole new level of hipster, even for Seattle! 😂 (I live there)
They are pretty but I don’t think I could deal with the smell.

It’s funny because one of my previous jobs had the most beautiful “flowers” growing in front of the business sign. One day I caught the landscapers out there working and I asked what type of flowers were they and the guys replied, “Oh these are a type of cabbage!” But this was years before I even met my Fiance so I never even thought about it. This is a great idea because that first pic is similar to the color scheme that I want.

I have bad memories of over boiled cabbage from my childhood, so no. I’d consider other vegetables though.

my girlfriend did succulent bouquets. She planted them after the wedding and 6 years later they are still growing in her garden!

Wow! That’s a beautiful idea. One of my ideas for give aways was also some small succulents. Now I don’t even know why we didn’t do it… haha

They’re pretty, so I wouldn’t mind at all except… do they smell cabbagey after being out a few hours? That would hold me back for sure.

Is this the same as ornamental cabbage? If so then it’s everywhere in the UK, it’s in a lot of supermarket bouquets and you see it in floral arrangements very frequently. Not weird at all.

This is WAY prettier than I expected it to be! But no, I think I’ll stick to flowers for my bouquet!

Sure, why not? I LOLed (in a good way) at the woman carrying a huge cabbage with the leaves in the last picture. I think it would be awesome if someone did that.

Would it not smell cabbage-y? I think they’re cool but wouldn’t want it for a bouquet for a wedding personally

I love decorative cabbages! In my experience they don’t have the same smell as “normal” cabbage…but I haven’t been around arrangements with them in a while.

Most of these look like decorative cabbage that wouldn’t be eaten so maybe this is a moot point but I’m not a fan of using food for decoration when there are people who could use it as food. I guess cabbage is cheap enough and used as wedding flowers rarely enough that it wouldn’t impact prices, but it still brings to mind the poor French people who couldn’t make bread because rich people decided it was fun to powder their hair with flour.
